    I Just recently received a DSTWO GBATemp Limited edition, and was really enjoying the GBA emulation feature by playing Kingdom Hearts CoM. I had Played it for a couple of days, with absolutely no problems.

    Though recently, While playing, the DS Lite shut of randomly. I tried turning it back on, but all i got was a White flash on the bottom screen, and it was of again. This is what happens any time I try to turn it on. [​IMG]

    Has this happened to anyone? Any help/advice? Is it "Bricked?" Is there anything I can do? Is this a known DSTWO issue?

    I'm really going crazy now, and am nervous I ruined my ds, which I did not know a flashcart could do...

    Please Help,
    -TenenTenen

    I don't think a flash card can brick a ds.

    The solution: Get a DSi!
    I was wondering whether or not I really wanted a DSi to replace my Lite, but if this can happen...

    Ok......So...what happened then?

    @rockstar:
    Blow fuses? explain? is there a fix for this?
    Is the bottom screen flash a symptom of blown fuses?

    No fix after its bricked unless you open up your ds with a triwing, which can be hard if your not good with circuits, ad I am 90% sure the bottom screen flash is a symptom. I have it on 2 older bricked DSls

    But when the bottom screen flashes, doesn't that mean that there's a missing component in the DS? Like the ribbon cable for the upper screen is disconnected?

    Can anyone confirm this?

    @Stevetry: The warranty is past gone.

    Indicator light Info:
    If i plug it into a wall charger, the orange charge light comes on and stays on.
    When it I turn it on, The green indicator is on for 2 seconds then is off when the ds is off.

    But I think it is flashing cause it is turning off. If the machine was on, but the creens were flashy/black, then it could be the ribbon cable.

    I don't know if it is the same type of problem as the N5. as the N5 issue casued a complete lack of power, whilt this did not. this is from answrs.com:

    If while powering the system up and either one of the screens flash white then it powers down, that means that there is a problem with the screen that didn't flash. These systems have a systems check while powering on. If there is a problem with one of the screens it will shut down. One of two things, a connection of the ribbon cable or a bad screen.

    well one possibility the battery itself could be shot, not uncommon to have a bad battery, prob cant hold a charge, try replacing battery they sell cheap if i am correct, see also a tech comp that could help you out, or try opening up yourself and see if there is anything wrong that does not look normal
