Question from Link484

My DS Lite keeps turning off at some games! What to do?

Recently, I've been experiencing this.
My DS sometimes randomly turns off (and then sometimes on).
Interestingly, some games work completely fine, but for others, every 5 minute or so, my DS turns off.

I have problems with Mega Man & Bass, New Super Mario Bros. and Rayman: Raving Rabbids. I haven't tried all my games yet, but it works fine with Phoenix Wright and WarioWare Twisted!

So both DS and GBA games are effected, but not all of them.

What's the problem exactly? What is the solution?

Okay, upon some testing with the GBA Rayman: It seems that pressing the buttons trigger the turn-off.
When I play, it turns off after 2-5 minutes.
When I just let the DS on but untouched, it stays on.

Some more info: It happens way less often if the DS is plugged in charging.
But still happens every now and then.

Your DS is glitched. send it to Nintendo(just make sure you have alot of money for what they might say, either put it in surgery(fix it) or buy a new one(cheaper))
