    some advice, l / r usually are just a problem with the buttons and id advise not to blow on them, its cause the rubber pads on them often get pushed down, also questions regarding power, 1. does it power up with the charger 2. can the battery be charged via an extrernal charger of sorts?

    L R doesn't worked, also, the buttons was damaged, so i soldered news l r buttons
    1.-if the DS lite doesn't have battery, won't.
    2.- You mean like USB charging? of course, AC always must be 5V MAX. 4.25V is min. to charge.

    so, have you tested the battery terminals to see if they get the right amount of power (sometimes a device can be underpowered and wont boot because of it)

    No, i don't have tested the terminals, but Orange LED will help in this. (when is charging and nah)
    And if a device doesn't receive adequate voltage, the system won't work. (Like DS Lite, if don't receive 5V, won't charge.) (USB charging i know can be 3V - 5V, but i think motherboard can balance the volts)

    then its either: a short, underpowered, overpowered, or the terminals.

    the most likely cause for overpowering is a short ciruit and underpoweing also a short ciruit, most devices cant handle power too high or too low.
