Help with ds lite please!

    My Daughters ds will not switch on, when you go to charge it, the red light comes on briefly and then goes off again. I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem before. We bought it from Marshall Ward just before Christmas, Would I be able to return it for them to fix or replace?
    Thanks for any help with this as I cant afford a new one just now!


    Ok, if it doesnt charge, it most likely means the battery became corrupted by something, either a bad polarity or power surge. But the bonus of this outcome is that it is covered under warrenty by Nintendo.

    They will replace the battery inside the DS lite, all you need to do is contact them, I will supply the link at the bottom of the page, just explain in Detail the problem, and they will supply you will information for mailing the DS to them.

    I know this kinda sucks, but the great thing about the Nintendo company is that they are far more responsible and caring about their customers than any other gaming industry giant.


    also, try a differend charger and take the battery out and clean it mate.

    Thanks for your help, I will try another ds battery in it tomorrow.

    Send it back to Marshall ward, don't fart about trying to fix it, or sending it to Nintendo.
