DS Lite Repair Service




EDITED 03/02/2012 In Response to Common Questions:

Q: NDSL won't turn on or charge

A: Fortunately we can fix your DS Lite System. Unfortunately it can be very hard to accurately diagnose this issue without having the system in front of us. For those of you interested in self repair, these symptoms can indicate a faulty f2 fuse, crimp in the upper lcd cable, dead ds lite battery or twisted battery contacts on your ds lite battery connector, etc. In this case we strongly recommend sending your system into our shop for our professional ds lite repair service.


Q: NDSL flashing orange light

A: In this case, we have written up a guide on how to fix the ds lite flashing orange light. The short answer is that you are likely looking at replacing the upper lcd or lower lcd, or replacing the f2 fuse.


Q: DS Lite shows a green lite at power up then goes dark.

A: This is a very similar symptom to those above. Again, we are looking at a break somewhere in the chain of power from the battery through the LCD screens. Anytime there is a break, the system will automatically shut off. Again, the break could be a blown F2 fuse, crimped top LCD or bottom LCD screen (in which case you need to replace the whole lcd screen), or even a bad L2/L4 inductor. In this type of situation, we highly recommend having our professional staff diagnose and repair your ds lite system.


Q: There appears to be a crack in my ndsl touch screen

A: In this case, here is the question: did the touch screen crack on its own, or did both the DS Lite touch screen and underlying lower LCD screen crack? In most cases, if you see color distortion around the crack, you have both a cracked touch screen and bottom lcd screen. If you can feel the crack, but not see it on the screen, you probably only have a broken touch screen. In either case, this again is a difficult repair, but our DS Lite Lower LCD Repair video can help. We do however recommend sending your system in for professional ds lite repair service.


Q: My DS Lite is very hard to keep upright
 
A: This is a classic case of a worn out DS Lite hinge. You are definitely looking at having to replace the DS Lite hinge, which is a fairly easy repair (all things being relative of course). You should however check for cracks in the plastic shell around the hinge (right hand side). If the plastic is broken at all you are going to have to replace both the DS Lite shell and the hinge. We have a free how to replace a DS Lite hinge and shell video that can help you in the process, but if that looks too difficult you can always send it in for us to repair your ds lite for you.

NDSL won't turn on or charge (1/17/2011 9/3/2014 1:31:00 AM)
Hi, my DS Lite won't turn on or charge. When it is plugged in to the charger, the orange light flashes for a second then goes off. From what I've researched its a pretty common problem, but I don't feel confident enough to fix it on my own. Is this a problem you guys deal with often? Is it covered in your NDSL Repair Service?

NDSL questions (1/18/2011 9/3/2014 10:50:00 PM)
Hi, I found your ds lite help section on a web site. I was wondering if you can help me. I too repair these ds lite's and have been for about a year. I have pretty much seen it all with these broken systems. I can repair all the broken hinge,lcd screens,L/R trigger buttons, slot1 replacement, fuse repair, power switch. I got pretty good at soldering. Well my problem is water damage and a few other issues. I know the water damage with corrosion is pretty much a waste of time but if you have any suggestions that would be great. My problem right now is I get a green light on startup but NO screen activity on a few of my systems. There is no water damage issue at all that I can see. I know you can get this problem if the WI-FI board is not in all the way, the board is in.The lcd screen ribbons are in all the way. The fuses check out good. There is really no visible signs of anything wrong. I have a theory. You know when you open the ds and close it while it is on, the screens will go out just before it shuts all the way ( like a sleep mode ). What tells the ds to shut the screens off ? I think it is something magnetic but I am not sure. Do you know of anywhere where I can get a repair manual for the ds lite. It would be really nice to know what all the chips on the board are for and what they do and what voltage you should be getting out of them. I have heard you can get these manuals somewhere. I have read many posts on many web sites regarding these systems but they do not go into fixing these sorts of problems that no one can fix. On eBay there are places you can send them to and they say they can fix these problems and if they can't they will refund your money. I would like to know what they can actually fix and what they can't. well any help that you can give me I would greatly appreciate it . thanks...

There appears to be a crack in my ndsl touch screen (2/5/2011 9/3/2014 7:30:00 PM)
Hi i have had my ndsl for a number of years now and the touch screen has had a few scratches on it from being played alot but just today i went to play one of my games and when i tapped the screen a blue pixel in the shape of a crack appeared where all the scratches are. i tried restarting the game several times. the crack still appeared but is only seen while the power is on. do i need to replace the entire touch screen? and if so how much does that usually cost in a repair shop.

Re: DS Lite (1/23/2011 10:54:00 PM) (2/19/2011 9/3/2014 11:15:00 AM)
Neil, You may have a problem with the battery or a fuse. As there are a number of potential issues with your system, I would recommend sending it in for our professional repair staff to have us fix it for you.

Re: There appears to be a crack in my ndsl touch screen (2/19/2011 9/3/2014 11:19:00 AM)
Amanda, From your description, it sounds like you will need to replace both the touch screen and lower LCD screen. The crack appearing only while on indicates that it has damaged the LCD itself. This is not an easy repair, but if you wanted to try it yourself the cost would be roughly $8.83 for the touch screen + $16.44 for the bottom LCD. Alternatively you can send it in to us for our repair service for $54.99 which covers parts and labor.

touch screen problem (2/21/2011 9/3/2014 10:31:00 PM)
Hello I recently replaced the shell on my ds lite because of a broken hinge. When I turned it on however I discovered that the touch screen isn't registering touches except at the very bottom. do you know why this could be?

Greg - New Hampshire
My DS Lite is very hard to keep upright (3/13/2011 9/3/2014 7:34:00 PM)
My Ds is about four years old, and it has gone through a bunch with me. I am still enjoying the system, but the hinge in the back broke. It no longer sstays upright and it will fall to the back after I set it up. Can you fix this Ds?

Jack - Texas
The fuse (3/16/2011 9/3/2014 1:47:00 PM)
near the fuse the board has gone blue. what do you reckon it is, fuse f2. Is this why my ds wont turn on.

Christian - England
I don't think it is the fuse... (3/21/2011 9/3/2014 7:16:00 PM)
My ds lite experienced water damage. When I plug in the adapter, I get the charge light (orange light) turning on and then turning off and staying off, which many say would indicate fuse problems. So I opened it up and checked both f1 and f2 fuses, and both of them still work. I took apart the system and let it dry for 24 hours. I reassembled it, it still doesn't work. Could that mean the motherboard is shot? Thanks.

Power switch problems (3/28/2011 9/3/2014 1:09:00 PM)
I purchased a DSlite from e-bay (for $8.00) to be used for the shell replacement for my oldest sons broken hinge. They told me they dropped it once and it never turned on after so they sold it for parts. I had it on the counter and my son plugged it in by accident and it turned on once the battery charged. It went thru the set up procedures but you need to turn off and back on again to use the DSlite. It will not turn off via the switch. This tells me this DSlite is good and works other than the switching off and or on. The switch has still has spring to it when you push it on. So i'm assuming the switch has a broken solder lead (from the prior owner dropping it) or it is just bad. I purchased already from you the tri-blade screwdriver and a new swith, it's on its way. What are your thoughts on this problem from the symptoms I described? (If it is just the switch, it was a good buy for $8.00 and the screwdriver and switch cost.) - Jody

Top screen issue (4/22/2011 9/3/2014 1:57:00 PM)
The top screen on my DS Lite changes colors and stuff when you move it around. Plus it just shuts off when you close the screen. It won't go into sleep mode. Not sure which parts need to be fixed. Seems like it might be a loose connection. Not sure. Any thoughts on this? Please?

Ds lite won't charge or turn on (4/30/2011 9/3/2014 10:53:00 PM)
I had a Ds lite a few years back and after the hinge broke the ribbon got damaged and overall. presently I bought replacement screens for both top and bottom as well as a new shell from amazon. Everything went okay until the lower screen I saw I had bought the wrong screen it was to big and didn't have the tiny ribbon on top. The Ds would turn on fine until I attempted to push in the lower screen since it was to large to fit. It then suddenly turned off and remained like that, I also put the old screen in it, but it still won't turn on. If I try to charge the orange lite is only on for a second. The battery is not the problem is as much as I know currently. Did I tweak something maybe? I hope to hear back soon.

White bottom screen (5/31/2011 9/3/2014 7:52:00 PM)
My DS Lite bottom screen is only showing white, the touch screen still works, its just white. Is the screen just loose or should I replace it?

Sawyer - california
Re: issue with system (6/3/2011 9/3/2014 10:39:00 PM)
Adriana, You likely just need to replace the top lcd screen, but anytime there is a flashing on and off symptom we recommend you send it in for repair, as it could be caused by a number of issues. "when turn on it will just flash an go off .it will never stay on please help me what is wrong it? "

Re: touch screen problem (6/3/2011 9/3/2014 10:41:00 PM)
Greg, You may have knocked loose the touch screen connector during installation. Open her back up and make sure that connection is tight. If you can't get it working, send it in to us and we can fix it for you. Thanks!

Re:My DS Lite is very hard to keep upright (6/3/2011 9/3/2014 10:43:00 PM)

Re: I don't think it is the fuse... (6/3/2011 9/3/2014 10:47:00 PM)
Andrew, Water damage is the hardest thing to diagnose and repair. It could be anything. One short in the entire works, and your system is shot. I strongly recommend sending it in for us to repair. That way, even if we can't get it working we can give you credit towards a refurbished system. Thanks!

broken touchscreen connector (6/16/2011 9/3/2014 8:45:00 PM)
I succesfully replaced the case on my daughter's ds-lite, then decided that the shiny new case meritted a scratch-free touch screen. In the process of replacing the touchscreen, the small black "hinge" on the touchscreen connector came off. While trying to put it back on, it basically disintegrated in my tweazers (too much pressure, I guess). Can you suggest a way to secure the small touchscreen cable to the system board, or should I give up and buy her a dsi for her birthday?

Can something be loose inside? (6/23/2011 9/3/2014 12:58:00 AM)
My daughters DS lite seems to have some loose conection inside. Both screens goes almost white (you can still see some of the stuff but very dull) When you press a little harder right below the touch screen the display becomes perfectly readable. Can there be a loose conection in there?

Directional Pad doesn't work. How much will it cost? (7/14/2011 9/3/2014 11:07:00 PM)
I got a DS Lite from a friend and the directional pad doesn't work. The up button works ok, left and right will not work no matter what, and the bottom one functions if pressed really really hard. Hopefully I am not the first who has this problem but I was told that I am one of many. How much will it be to fix this?

Directional Pad fixable by buying a new shell? (7/15/2011 9/3/2014 2:43:00 PM)
Ok. New question. The repair fee is a bit too high for my price range and since it is only the directional pad would it be fixed if I bought a new shell? The shells come with buttons so if I buy one and install it myself, roughly how much will that be and will it work?

ndsl (7/20/2011 9/3/2014 8:59:00 PM)
when i plug in my ds lite it flashes yellow for a minute and then stops. When i try to play it while it's charging, it works for about 3-5 minutes and then shuts down. Also, sometimes when I turn on my system it's reset completely, I have to enter in all my information as if it's a new ds! I have had this ds for at least 3 or more years so I'm very attached to it, and I don't have the money to pay for a new one, especially since I'm still in high school and have no way of income. Also, I was told it was a faulty battery and so I bought a battery online and I can't open the battery cover with the included screwdriver, soon after I bought this, I was told not to play around with my ds, and if I replaced the battery wrong, my ds won't work at all. This all started around December 2010, and i had my ds taken away until school had ended, so it hasn't been in use for at least 8 months. Please help me. -Hillary

I have a ds lite that turns on but after a little while it turns off. we hav etried the fuses and they seem to be fine. Could the problem be the top screen needs to be replaced and that is why the whole system goes off? We bought it this way and we are trying to fix it. We buy broken ones often and fix them up but have never had this problem where we couldn't find the issue.

R4 Card and Wrong Voltage (9/14/2011 9/3/2014 5:47:00 AM)
I am using an R4 card with my Nintendo DS Lite and, once-in-a-while, I experience (seemignly) random freezing. I recenly and accidentally plugged my US-bought DS into 220V for a few seconds. The device turns on, I can acess saved files, and play. When one character levels up, every time the device freezes. How can I tell if I caused permantent damage to my DS from the wrong voltage? How can I tell if my DS is fine, but the issue is with the R4 card? Either way, for whatever issue, are there any ways to fix this? Thank you so much for any and all help you can provide! :)

Alexis Georgia probley have to buy whole new screen and depends if it top = tricky or the bottom one = easy to fix bye stripping the whole dsi xl down whitch is not too hard and thay sell on ebay around £20 depending if top or bottom and still depens how deep scratch is and or noticeable plus next time get screen protectors, just in case.

Upper screen, sound, freezing (11/10/2011 9/3/2014 11:44:00 PM)
hi i've had my ds lite for about 3 years. about half a year ago there was a crack in the top screen and now the dead pixels have spread to cover about a quarter of the screen. recently my sound died as well - it came back on once but after i closed it it stopped working again. also occasionally it freezes after closing and opening, and does not recognise my cartridge. the screen crack was due to too much pressure on the ds in my bag, but im not sure what might have caused the rest. how much would all this cost to repair? would it be smarter to just buy a new one?

Slot 1 too tight after rebuild (11/18/2011 9/3/2014 2:59:00 AM)
Hi there, I recently put a new motherboard in my DS Lite, and Slot 1 is now very tight. I have to push a lot harder to get the card in, and even pull it back up when it gets to the bottom because the card is being squeezed to tightly for the spring to pop it up. I'm thinking this is because the Microphone wire is now being depressed on the outer wall of the slot by the shell. Any thoughts on how to correct this? Any specific position the mic wire needs to be in to avoid this? Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this!

Gabe - Colorado, U.S.A
Nevermind, turns out it was the card I was using. (11/18/2011 9/3/2014 3:18:00 AM)

Broken bottom screen (12/3/2011 9/3/2014 7:38:00 PM)
I have a wonderful DS Lite that has worked like a charm for two years, but now the bottom screen does not work. When you turn it on, it has sort of gray and white horizontal line running through the bottom screen about as thick as a hair for each line. If you tap on the bottom screen it reacts and does the right thing, but you just can't see anything through the lines. I would really like to know if I could fix it myself, and if I can't, how much does it cost to fix. If you have any questions or if you need a picture send an email to me please. Thanks! Katherine˜

4 ds lite needs lots a repair needs to find a repair shop that low cost (12/23/2011 9/3/2014 10:14:00 PM)
We have 4 ds's we've taken well care of them about a few weeks ago three of the ds's top screen turned white .Then my brothers ds wouldn't read the games completely . Then the l/r buttons didn't work . Then the one that was fine top screen goes all the way back and freeze's when playing games. Three have some scratches here and there. But my ds came with a huge crack over the back part. My brothers and I have though of having them refurbished but it cost to much. is there any good repair shop that we can take them to be refurbished at low cost?

changing shell or cover? (12/29/2011 9/3/2014 10:59:00 PM)
the hinge on my nintendo ds lite broke and it is all floppy but still it works should i just repair it by glue (i don't know what it is called but the one you use on things) or change the shell by reassembling it i saw how to but it's so complicated and i want to change color and fix the hinge should i continue or leave it as it is? would you recommend changing shells? because maybe by changing shells it would be more prone to damage and get easily broken because it's not the original shell and maybe it will be low in quality if i change shell?

When I was playing my DS Lite last night, when I started up the device I noticed that the startup tone was substantially more high pitched than normal.

Every time I want to play my DS Lite I have to fully recharge it, no matter how long I played it or how long ago I played it. Even if I only played it for an hour, it requires a full charge to turn on next time I want to play. Also, my charger only works if I stick it about halfway into the port. Is this a problem with my charger or my DS?

DSI Lite? (5/8/2012 9/3/2014 6:07:00 PM)
Okay, my when I turn my DS Lite it shows the green light, but no noise and no picture shows up. The green light stays on, and won't turn off until I use the power button, but it doesn't work. Another is when once in a blue moon that it actually turns on it freezes completely, and won't get back to normal. My friend said that there was this chip in the cartridge that broke, but I don't know for sure if he was right. I also have another problem. When it did work the top screen had problems. It started out red, but then just kept turning black, even if it was fully open. I had to sway it a couple times for it to get back to normal, but it eventually started taking 4 minutes! My DS is messed up! Can someone tell me how much it would cost to fix it?

My ds lite was working fine for 2 years till the top screen would turn white if I didnt hold it in the right position. I dealt with it for a year, but now I cant get it to work at all. It stays white and I cant barley see anything behind it

"Can't Read Game Data" (7/30/2012 9/3/2014 10:59:00 PM)
Everytime I put a Cartridge into my DS lite, it can read the game up until when it needs to read any Data, then it gives me a message saying "Cannot read game data, please turn off the system and take out the Cartridge and retry" I've tried blowing on the game and in the Cartridge slot but it never works... I think it's a pin inside the slot thats broken but if you can help then please do. Thanks

Bottom screen shaking (8/16/2012 9/3/2014 12:02:00 AM)
Hi, the bottom screen of my DS lite shakes vertically inconsistently. Is this likely a problem with the screen or one of the connectors? I can't seem to find any help online with this. Thanks!

Dropped DS (11/1/2012 9/3/2014 9:49:00 PM)
My son's DS lite was dropped and the part/chip between the "100" part and the power button fell off the circuit board. How should I reattach it? It looks like it was glued before. Is so should I use a silicon glue?

Seems to me from reading all of the 'oranange light flashes for sec then goes off' problems - (which is the same problem my friends unit has) are an unreliable waste of money designed by twits

DS Lite Charging Problem (12/27/2012 9/3/2014 5:51:00 PM)
Hello: I've been having charging issues. Before I changed my ds lite battery, it died out very fast and only last about 1 hour and it took over 15 hours to charge fully. I tried playing while charging but the green light changed to orange kind of color. I thought it was the battery so I changed the battery and it results in the same problem. It took over 10+ hours to charge and the new replacement battery only lasted about 1 hour after I put it in. It's a completely new battery that I ordered from the nds repair shop website. I have no idea if it's the battery or my ds lite. The brightness is set on the lowest and it still did not last long. I'm thinking about sending in for a repair, but I do not know how much it will cost. Thanks for the help!

My DSi's L Button Will Not Work (4/10/2013 9/3/2014 5:27:00 PM)
I've had my DSi for about 4 or 5 years now, and then about 2 years or so ago, the L button mysteriously stopped working…I'd hadn't used the L button when I had first gotten it, but then when I really needed it for one of my games, it didn't work. Also, I had a DS lite with the same problem. Though I had that one for about 10 years. My parents told me that I couldn't get a new DS system because I "broke my others" when I hadn't. Could you help me please?? :(

Metal parts to ds light (4/30/2013 9/3/2014 4:09:00 AM)
I was wondering what other metal could I use to turn on my ds light . You see what had happened was I dropped it and I know the switch was broken cuz it showed no force, it world just slide back In forth . My friend decided to make a big as square cut out where the power switch is so he could try to fix it . Founded the metal peace that turned it on and jimmy riged it so I can turn it on . But now I've lost the metal peace and was wondering what I could use to turn it on ?
