The DS wont charge because my daughter stuck a penney in the DS

Try and unscrew all the covers for the DS and locate the penny. Just try not to stretch wires or anything.

My 8 yr. old daughter left here ds lite in the rain

Go to the retailer you bought it from and if you bought it less than two years ago you can get a new one free with the exchange of the old one only if you have the warranty

We think a neighbor girl spilled liquid on/in my son's DS Lite. It now won't power on and the orange light will stay on for only a minute or two when we attempt to charge the unit. The battery is good......

If the DS was turned on when the liquid was spilled on it I don't think there is much hope to be honest:(

If it's under warrenty send it back otherwise you might try taking it apart and use a hair dryer to dry it off... that's a long shot though!

Just bought my daughter a memory card for her nintendo ds lite!!

The memory card goes in the R4, contacts up (face down). And then you slide the R4 into the DS, exactly the same way as you would any DS game.

My ds wont charge? the charger is fine as i have tried it with another ds. when i plug it in the light shows for 1 second and then turns off. my daughter put 20pence in where the game should be but came...

You may be having problems with the battery in the back of the DS or the connection that the lead goes into. When you plug the lead in, move it about at the connection holding the wire close to the console, if you find that the light comes on then goes off again when you let go or move it, it will be the connection on the actuall DS. The only other thing I can suggest to check the battery, is to remove the battery from your DS and try another one from a friends DS to see if it works with a different battery.

I hope this helps

DS blinks and will not turn on

As complicated a console as the DS is, it is not surprising you have a problem after changing a case. Sometime the little snap on wires do not snap on right.  You need to go back in and  make sure the ribbons and snap on connectors are sucured. The ribbon and wire that runs from top half through the hinge needs to roll up one turn before in the transition from the top to bottom half.  You may have the ribbon upside down in the connector.
