    Whenever I close my DS while in game, the green LED flashes rapidly and the screen won't shut off properly. Anybody seen this before? On the home screen and the AKAIO menu its fine. I made a video.

    I think the blinking is normal, but I haven't used the DS Lite model in over a year.

    As for the screen, I think holding it like that if a definite problem (just above the "Sleep Trigger", as I like to call it) and basic aging probably does that. No big deal, so long as it DOES go into sleep mode completely. Does it?

    This could be a real problem.

    Did you try it with a retail game?

    It does not. The screen nor the speakers don't turn off.

    That happened to me before on a few games. I don't know why, but I ignored it. It went away for quite awhile.

    This usually happens to me whenever I'm on a homebrew like moonshell 2

    Since we are talking about glitches here:

    Has anyone ever played either a GBA game or a NDS rom on your SCDS2 in your DSi and the camera on light was on? It happened to me last week when i was playing HeartGold and again when i was playing Metroid Fusion.

    Sorry i dont have a cam to video my proof, but it happened to me.

    Hmm... I got this a few times. On retail games too. I fixed it by removing the DS cart, blowing into the slot, and then starting the game up again.
