Hi, so if you try switching on the ds lite, nothing at all happens ??
Does the green light flash even if it is for like a split second.If it does then it is more likely top be a blown fuse. If 1 of your screens flicker also, this could be your problem as the ds will not start up with a broken screen. Please advise

If you replaced the lower LCD PLEASE check to see if you put a pad on the bottom of the lower lcd... If the metal is touching the board then your LCD and causing the board to shutoff! and not power on.

That's the main reason your DS wont power on if you changed those things.


Your F1 or F2 fuse could have died out as well.

My ds lite wont power on how can i fix it?

One of you're screens is broken or the F2 fuse has blown.

Check youtube for a video on "how to check my DS lite F2 fuses" there are several available that give step by step guidance on how to do this.

Having checked these (and replaced blown ones) and you're screens are still not working then it is a screen that has blown.

If the bottom screen flashes for a split second when you turn it on then it is you're TOP screen that has blown and needs to be replaced. If it doen't flash then it is you're bottom screen that is broken and needs to be replaced.

Nintendo DS won't power-up

It sounds like a faulty battery. As it is under 1 year old, it is still under warranty. Return it to the origional place of purcase, who will either fix or replace it.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off

Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.
