    Hello everyone. I have had my ds lite laying round for a few weeks and I decided to try and fix it after my little brother got on my nerves.

    This is the problem with the ds lite:
    At first, the screen was very faded as if it was going to turn off. Now the ds doesnt even turn on at all. Not even when its fully charged. The ds shows no signs of turning on whatsoever.

    I managed to fix my nintendo wii before but i know nothing about ds systems.If someone could explain how i could fix this and how much the process would cost (what is needed, tools..etc,) that would be great and greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time everyone.

    Do you know when this problem started happening? What happened that caused the screens to go like this?

    If the top or bottom screen flashes as you turn on the ds lite, then the problem is that the top screen needs to be replaced. Else if it doesn't do anything when you turn it on, then it could be a fuse problem within the DS lite motherboard. This will require small soldering skills. Google ds lite fuse repair and you'll see the process.
