Hello,

So i recently found my old nintendo ds lite (black) and i wanted to start it up again etc, it worked fine loaded gba games and ds games which i have original, but i also had an m3 ds real flash card, so i try'd to download the firmware on a site called 4flashkaarten dont try to go there to use the firmware for the m3 ds real since it doesn't work and it will brick your system.
When i copied everything to my micro sd card and i put the thing back in the m3 ds real i put it in my ds started it up and it loaded up and i was like nice! it asked me what langauge i wanted to have so i clicked my langauge, it went to install mode or w/e it did and suddenly my ds shutted down and it is not turning on anymore. The only thing that happens when i turn it on is the bottom screen flickering white for a second and directly turns the ds lite off, it didn't had any issue and worked perfectly fine... is there a solution i could unbrick my ds? Or is it bios related/fuses which are blown up? Hopefully someone could enlighten me up what the issue is, thanks!:)

does the ds-lite turn on if the m3 ds real isn't inserted? if it still boots up then you could use this alternative firmware for your m3 ds real i have the same card and this firmware works very good.

Yes the ds lite does turn on but it doesn't boot, it just flickers a white screen for a second then instantly shuts down, so i don't see anything else when booting it up except the 1 second white screen on the bottom screen, weird thing is the ds was fine until i used that particular software idownloaded and when i installed it when the m3 ds real asked me to pick a langauge it shutted down suddenly. So idk if it's hardware related now that it broke or software related

okay, then i dont know how to solve this. maybe looking for a way to reset it propperly?

Ye i am not sure what the issue is, but the ds worked fine before i tryd to install it with m3 ds real so i don't think it is a hardware issue more a firmware of the ds issue itself? I don't know resets for the ds sadly, hopefully someone else knows it i guess?

not good. i wish you much luck with your device. sorry i wasn't much of a help.

Hey so i tried to turn my ds lite on again and guess what? It works again, is this a power issue of some sort? Or a failing screen? It's so weird cause it started to flicker a white screen when i tried to put it on and then turn off directly.. but now it works again, which is amazing though!:D but what is the reason it acts like this?

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
