    I have an R4 III version 3.03 and when i turn my DSLite on with my R4 III there is a red light instead of a green light. When im in the R4 III menu it it will stay solid red and if i close it, it will blink red. In games it will stay solid red and when i close my DSLite it will blink green.

    The games seem to play fine, but is it bad that im getting red lights instead of green ones?

    I'm curious to see if other owners have this problem or have heard of it.

    Red means your batter is dead, flashing green means your DS is still on blah blah blah. It is all logical [​IMG]

    OK see, this is why people need to read the manual LOL.

    Flashing green means you are using wireless play, be it adhoc or infrastructure. Flashing red means you're using wireless play and your batteries are gonna die real bloody soon so you better plug in the farkin AC charger or else you'll be labeled as a "OMG disconnector" on Nintendo Wifi.

    What, people download DS Systems these days and they didn't come with a manual? LAWL

    Flashing green is also when you have your DS in sleep mode, which is what I believe jager may have meant?
    I think they should stop printing Manuals and just include a little pamphlet that has a link to an online version. Think of all the tree's they could save.

    It means your DS microphone is being tapped into by aliens to research you. [​IMG]

    We're talking about while playing, but yeah flashing green/red also happens when the DS is closed while a game is running, same thing about indicators, green means battery is good red means charge it, not close it [​IMG]

    I don't have to say what happens when you close your DS while a wifi game is going [​IMG]

    The idea of the User Manual is that when a customer opens the box, they have to read it (sometimes referred to as 'Instruction manual'). If they don't recycle it they waste a tree by not feeding their knowledge receptors [​IMG] Now the DS is no exception, we all know about that Health and Safety warning upon turning on a newly bought DS, I quote "Before Playing, read the health and safety precautions booklet for important information about your health and safety" including a web link to an extra copy. Now it doesn't say manual, but my god there's something to read lol.

    @OP, how long have you got your DS??? [​IMG]

    Seriously, the red light will show up after you play for a total of 4 hours or more, how can you not know about that?
