Last night the F2 fuse on my DS Lite blew...

For now I've shorted the fuse with a solder bridge so I can keep using my DSL but I intend to replace the fuse properly.

I've tried searching for dsl fuse rating but come up with nothing. Can anyone tell me what the V / A ratings are for these things?

Thanks!

Here are some useful links to tutorials on how to fix the fuse:

Remember: You have to open up the console to fix it (quite obvious, right?), and if you have a warranty you won't be able to use it if you open up the console.

I'm not responsible if anything goes wrong!

(Just wanted to point that out...)

Edit: Forgot to say that you can use google to find even more tutorials about reparing the fuses. Just google "ndsl fuse blown" or "nds repair blown fuse" or something like that.

Thanks for the replies! I managed to find a site that mentioned the fuse specs and ordered a 10-pack of them from DigiKey - they were only $0.50 each.

Gryphon93 - I've already been in there to short the blown fuse, I have no qualms about going in to replace the short with a proper fuse once I get my hands on one.

linkinworm - thanks for the ebay link. Shipping to the US isn't really a concern -- Canada isn't part of the US, though it's a common misconception.
