Many times, it is the L2 Inductor chip that has popped off on impact- that's usually what you hear rattling around inside the housing...and it requires a TriWing screwdriver to open it. I tried re-soldering the L2 inductor back on the mainboard inside with a Hakko ESD protective soldering station, and it worked for a few days and then died again. The fix was finally desoldering another SMD inductor chip off an old PIII Socket 370 motherboard (with ChipQuik removal solder and flux kit) of very close to the same size class, from next to the Clock Generator Chip- figured it would be close to the right value, since I had no way to measure the micro- or millihenries value, and the voltage was around the value that the DS Lite runs on. The fix worked, and is still working, charging, and going strong. Usually the symptoms of the L2 inductor popping off, or failing, is being able to charge, but not being able to power up.
