Charge indicator blinking orange, will not power up

Cracked open my sons DSi to look into the right shoulder button not functioning. Put it back together and button still not functional. Opened it up again to clean button better, now the DSi will not power up and the orange charge light only blinks when plugged into wall charger. When I hit the power button, the blue light comes on for a second or two then goes out. Left it charging overnight with no success. Is it more likely that the battery now needs to be replaced or did I damage some internal component the second time I cleaned it?

Discovered cause of blinking orange light! Opened the DSi to make sure the battery contacts were all in housing as they should be and noticed that the red and black wires going between battery terminals and circuit board looked odd. The black wire was completely seated in the slot but the red wire was pulled out just enough for me to see exposed copper. Pushed red wire all the way into slot and replaced battery. DSi now charges and powers up just fine.

by the way blowing into the trigger button that doesn't work is a good way to start with a faulty trigger button. alot of times dust gets in there but since you have torn it apart already did you check the rubber thing that sits on top of the button it's white/light grey if the circle isn't broken it's just dust. since it's a dsi look on the left/right of the side that's not working and take a deep breathe and blow into the machine really hard.

Mine just flashes orange but now what do I do?? any suggestions??

Mine flashes orange, too. Won't charge. Disassembled but issue remains. Not the charger.

i woke up and my dsi xl had water on it and probably in it my first reaction was to dry it off then i tried to turn it on with no success then i thought it was dead so i plugged it in and a red/orange midlle ovel was blinking right now is sitting in the sun what should i do

Try taking the battery out and re-seating it. That should solve your problem.

Done that, also made sure the battery contacts looked good and still no charge.

On a DSi the orange charging light blinking indicates improper voltage. It can be the sign of a bad battery, improper battery or one not seated properly. Please try re-seating the battery then put the charger on to see if the charging light stays sold prior to replacing the battery cover. Unless the battery has been exposed to water or directly shorted out I see no reason for the battery to be bad. Those battery die slowly over hundreds of charges. I have been repairing and selling Nintendo hand held game systems for 3 years. The only other thing that would make since is if one or more of the battery contacts on the system came out of it's housing. I can think of nothing you may have done when cleaning the trigger switch that may have caused the blinking orange light.

I did as said here and it WORKED. It was the battery, remove and reseat, everything seems to be fine now. The orange light would blink, the blue light would go on for a second and shut off, but this seems to have resolved the problem. Use a small pen knife to get those small battery screws out. THANK-YOU

I did as said but when I looked at the battery connector it looked like the prongs were bent and 'WT' was written across the power board. would that mean i need to replace it?

took the battery out and put it back in didn't work

opening the dsi didn't work

squeezing the battery in to make contact with the pins didn't work

please help!

how to bridge f1 fuse?

I had this same problem after soldering in a new game cartridge slot to the motherboard. Never done anything like this before so I was fretting when I saw the blinking orange light thinking I might have damaged the motherboard with my soldering iron, or linked two connections somewhere. Turned out after several hours of stress and googling to be a blown fuse in the power board. Just bridged it and now it works. Thank god.

I just squeezed the metal part of the charger for a better connection and it fixed my problem. After spending an hour looking at connections inside my dsi, it was actually the charger's port/insert that was the problem.

I had the same problem, I dropped it and the battery was out of place. It actually is kinda sensitive, so I tried as many things as you did, but in the end I had to put a little piece of ducktape on one side to push the battery against its corresponding metallic slots. It's kinda hard to explain, I made a little square thick enough to make the battery fit better into the space. What I think happened is, It fell so hard that the battery actually shrunk and wasn't touching the slots therefore not charging nor anything.

Check if its a nintendo licensed battery. It as to be a dsi. Battery for dsi and Xl battery for Xl. Look up the battery codes you'll find on a battery for your device. If your device still doesn't work, buy a nintendo battery pack.

Its Easy, undo the charger and push the battery up and ducttape it, then put the charger back in!

We had the same exact problem with the right D-pad (cross) button and it was - temporarily - repaired with a replacement power supply board (which had the D-pad buttons on it). However a few weeks later my son said the unit would not power up and the charge indicator light was flashing. I opened the unit again and found that the two tiny red and black wires that go from the PS board to the motherboard had been 'pinched' between the case halves and damaged when I installed the new PS board (I can see conductors thru the insulation where it was pinched). These wires route thru a tiny slot to hold them in place and away from the case halves but I did not realize that at the time. Also upon close examination of the new board and the original board I have found that those tiny wires are longer on the new board and therefore their routing is even more critical as the 'excess' wire is very prone to be pinched if not routed just so. The bottom line for us is that the damaged wires must have shorted because I discovered that the tiny 'F1' SMT fuse on the new PS board is blown and that I cannot repair. I have verified that this is the root cause as I have re-installed the original PS board (with its bad right D-pad switch) and other than that the unit works normally. I have ordered another PS board at this point.

So if you replace your PS board due to a bad D-pad switch (or other reason) be VERY careful when you route the red/black wires between the PS board and the motherboard so that they do not become damaged.

I had the same problem with my DSXL I had the orange blinking light. It wouldn’t charge or turn on so I cleaned out the charger port of all debris and dirt and wala it started charging as it normally should and never had any issues after that! So try cleaning around your charger port area to make sure there’s no dirt or debris
