DS Lite - Won't Charge or Start Up

I got my DS Lite a few years ago, sometime in early 2009 I think, in case that helps with my problem.

 

I have plugged my charger in the wall, then into my DS Lite, and the orange-ish charging light lights up for a second or two, but then stops. I tried turing on my DS Lite, but it doesn't work at all. It worked roughly a week ago, but then I didn't play it for a week, and now it isn't working at all.

 

I am guessing this is a battery problem, where can I get another battery for it and how much will it most likely cost?

 

If you don't think this is a battery problem, please tell me what you think.

Yeah, it sounds like it's a battery problem.

 

If you want to replace your battery, call Nintendo's Consumer Assistance Hotline at 1-800-255-3700 from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Pacific Time, and order a replacement battery there. I believe it costs around US$15.00.

This might be dumb, but have you tried a different charger?

 

If that doesn't work, It's most likely a battery problem.

If you still need assistance I would suggest you check our online troubleshooting here.  Depending on the specifics of your situation, the problem may be the DS Lite, the battery, or the AC adapter.

 

If you need further assistance, please give us a call at 1-800-255-3700 anytime between 6 AM and 7 PM Pacific Time.

Re: DS Lite - Won't Charge or Start Up

I would try someone else's charger or change the battery. If it still doesn't charge or start up after trying the two troubleshooting steps, it sounds like your DS Lite will have to be repaired by Nintendo by calling 1-800-255-3700. I think it's cheaper to get the DS Lite repaired than get a new one.
