My son's DS Lite switches off when he presses the B button - is this fixable?


I've had experiences of this before and have found that its most commoly caused by a crack in the motherboard due to the b button being pressed to vigorously.

To see if this is the case you might what to give it a few quick tests:

Firstly, see if the issue differs when various amounts of pressure is applied to the B button.

Another thing you can try is to put the DS lite in a zip bag (such as a food/ sandwich bag) and pop it in the freezer for 15mins. After the time has elapsed take it back out and turn it on, press the B button gently and see if the issue impoves.

If the issue does improve when you try these tests then its almost a certainty that the motherboard is cracked.

If you have a warranty then send it off, if you dont then there are many reputable repair services on the internet (such as ebay).
You can replace the motherboard yourself if you wish, this will require some specialist tools and a replacement motherboard which are all avaliable on ebay.

If you require any help with the dismantling process and what tools you will need then click on my name and see the relevant guide that I have written.

If you would like any further help or advice, or if this is not the solution then feel free to get back to me and I will assist you as best as I can.

My son spilled water on his ds lite last night. Now it does nothing. When you try to tur it on, the bottom screen flashes very quickly and thats it. Is there any hope?


If thebottom screen flashes then thetop screen is damaged and will need replacing.

You can get a new screen at a reasonable price on ebay and i have written up guides telling you how to dismantle the DS lite and how to replace the screens.

My son's DS Lite won't come on. The green light

Last time I had this I had to change the motherboard, tried for hours to find the fault. motherboards are about £50 if you have to resort to it. Make sure you are buying an original nintendo and not a copy

My ds is not turning on

check battery replace if need be, check that the switch springs back when moved up, try turning it on with the mains cable plugged in. Still no joy change fuses on the motherboard and eventually if nothing changes its a new motherboard or ds.

My ds console doesn't power up but green light is on...have tried a new battery still no good. Brand new ...son's Xmas gift


Sorry to hear that. This problem is caused by 2 things.

1.) Wifi Board is bad
2.) Motherboard is bad

HOWEVER, the Wifi board may not be bad, but the DS could have been dropped and the Wifi-Board fell off the motherboard.

SOLUTION: Open up the DS and look to the left. You will notice a small rectangular board sitting on top of the motherboard. If it's off, re-attach it and BINGO!

DS Lite Games will not stay in slot (retaining spring defective?)


You will need to replace the slot 1 card reader, these can be bought for around £5 on eBay. These need to be soldered to the motherboard, so some soldering skill is needed.

We offer this service at our repair center.

DS Lite does not power up

If the console has overcharged or has been used for long periods of time or could just be fluke, chances are the fuses are blown on the main motherboard try this link, this guy fixed my ds and i had the exact same problems as you guys have
