For sale is my nephews faulty nintendo ds lite in white.

The console does not power on, when the charger is plugged in the ds power light flashes red, then goes out. The console is in ok cosmetic condition, the screens are both fine.

Looking for £40, obviously offers are welcome.

Thanks for looking.

Also for sale seperatly is a supercard SD with 1GB Card (Rumble version) + max media launcher (slot 1). Running the latest firmware this card works perfectly, allowing 'backup games' to be played perfectly from the SD Card - Looking for £20.

Power button on the DS is a little stiff. Outer casing does have a few light scratches but is ok overall.

Another charger has been tested with it, same result, red light comes on for a second or two, then goes off.

I have added a pic of the item open for you.

Havnt got another battery to test, item has not been dropped or water damaged.

How old is the DS, any idea? Cheers for the pic :thumbsup:

Seems like a blown fuse. needs a soldering iron to fix. there are guides on the net to fix it if you feel up to it.

I have just googled that and it seems that is the fault with the ds, light comes on then goes out straight away, thanks shane, sadly, I wouldnt trust myself to do this.
#11

I'm going to have a ponder and get back to you Bryan. :)

Payment recieved, item sent.

Item received. Little bit disappointed really:

- Packaging was woeful - DS was pretty much falling out of one of several holes in the top
- Inside of package was wet - only within one bit, so must have been prior to packing
- Although condition was "OK", would say that its almost yellowing, somewhat manky and smells a bit lol! (although this is all quite probably off the water in the package)


Ho hum :)

I'll leave positive feedback once I have tested the charger(this was in the wet area) - just a heads up more than anything that the packaging really wasnt good enough - something to consider for future :thumbsup:
#22
I am extremely extremely sorry! I had to go to work so left the packaging to my nephew and his mother, who by the look of it has never sent anything like this before, my sister (his mother) probably rushed it, she has an autistic child so every minute is hectic, but I shouldnt make excuses, the packaging sounds terrible! I can assure you I have never had a problem like this before.

Im very sorry, its been a very hectic week for me, yes please test the charger and let me know.
#23
Bryan - its quite alright, dont worry about it. As it happens, it would appear that everything is there and probably working(other than the DS of course :D) - I just wanted to forewarn you more than anything, as on another day(with another postie :)) there could well have been an empty packet for me :).

Just to make it clear - I dont think that you have intentionally skimped on packaging or misled or anything of the sort(just in case others think that I think I've been "done" - I dont) - just a couple of niggles which I'm sure were just oversights :)

Thanks for being so understanding, I have just spoken to my sister, who said she packed it in the post office, she had her autistic son with her, so was rushing, purchased the jiffy bag in the actual post, and put it all in, I am very sorry, and like you said because you will have to purchase the casing, I will give a partial refund, how much will housing be, will £8 be enough to cover it.
#25
Dont worry about it as I say its one of those things - and I couldnt begin to even attempt to imagine what it would be like trying to send that while looking after an autistic child.

Dont worry about any refund just yet - I've looked again and it might be more superficial than I thought. Will try and clean it up tomorrow(at work at the mo). If I cant get rid of the yellowyness then I'll replace the housing and will consider your offer - but it's not like I paid a fortune anyway, so dont want to get you to refund anything unless absolutely neccessary. Just FYI I can get a housing for £8 (unofficial) so worst comes to worst, I would split that with you and maybe get £4-5 back - but as I say, dont want to do that just yet.
