Screen blank, but light is on. Can hear sounds. didn't drop it or download anything


Hi,
You've got problem with screen interface wires. It has fine wires between screen and circuit board and your problem is there base on my experience on PSP. You can fix it yourself by using good tools or just repair it at shop.

My daughters Ds Lites top screen has red lines going through it horizontally, that just started this morning. I wonder if it could be a pixel thing. Any ideas?


Hi,
Do you know if the Ds lite has been dropped? It sounds to me that the screens connectior has been dislodged or is receiving too much power.

My best advice is to either send it to nintendo if its under warranty, or if your brave enough take it apart, dissconnect the top screen and then reconnect it. If that doesn't work then chances are you will need to buy a new screen.

If you want more help/advice feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you.

Ds top screen not working


Unfortunately it's not possible really unless you wanna take apart your DS and buy a new screen and solder it in which I wouldn't know how to do any ways and I'm pretty sure it would be more cost effective to just buy a new one or if possible return it for a new one. Also try calling Nintendo they just might repair it but I don't think so.
Sorry and good luck

Cant play any game


Is this the top screen or the bottom screen? The top isn't meant to react to the stylus.

Non-working top screen


If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.

Picture faded with white broken lines


Hi, the problems you describe are indeed related... the cable that carries the data from the lower section (mainboard) to the top screen is also responsible for the sound and the speakers are connected to this cable near the top LCD screen. It sounds like the cable has become damaged and will need replacing which unfortunatley means a new top screen due to the way the cable is connected to the screen. I come across this problem frequently and I charge customers £35 for a replacement screen and fitting.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white


if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie
