    So I got a DS lite off craigslist, and it has a weird problem.

    -Works fine with offical game cartridges, 50% of the time. Sometimes just turns off pretty fast.
    -Loads up R4 DS but then shuts off before a game can be fully loaded/you can do anything.

    What have I done?
    -Tested with it plugged into official wall adapter.
    -Tested with known good battery. (also official)
    -Opened and checked to see if they was any pins solder together on the cart connector (friend told me to check?)


    So yeah WTF? I am going to let it charge overnight and test it but... Whats wrong with this thing?

    I guess the fuse was just BARRRRRLY holding on, because it finally stopped working completely and I opened it to discover a EXPLODED fuse.
