If you look at the board where the cable attaches you will see a small black line on the connector.
That black line is acually a clip lift it with a small screwdriver or even you finger nail it will stay up then the cable removes easy.

When I am playing my ds lite, there is a red (or blue) tone on my entire screen, making it hard to see true colors.


This is a common issue, it happens when the ribbon cable develops internal fractures or has been knocked loose. EB games will replace the top screen, as this is where the cable is stored. In rare cases it is an issue with the logic board. I recommend getting it replaced, but you could open up the system and see if the cable is loose. If it isn't, you're going to need to get the screen/logic board replaced.

My ds lite images on the top screen flickering.


Open up the DS and then unseat and reseat the ribbon cable that goes to the screen.

Once you do that, turn on the DS and if the screen is still flickering then the screen will need to be replaced.

Here is a tutorial on how to open up the DS and what the ribbon cable looks like:

Flashing bottom screen (Nintendo DS Lite)


You need to check the top screen ribbon is fully inserted into to place on the board. A green light and flash of the screen within a second means ribbon not connecting right

Reseating Touch Screen Ribbon Cables


The cable for the touchscreen is one with 4 conductors that connect directly to the overlay on the face of the LCD. The flat ribbon connector on the main board is quite delicate. The three connectors for the bottom screen are on the right side of the component side of the DS phat board. The touchscreen is labeled P6. On the DS Lite, the connector is closer to the R button.

Good Luck

Nintendo ds lite,green light on but not the screens


I had the Same problem on my wifes DS.  First problem was that it kept swithing itself off, so sent it to Nintendo for repair.  Within a week it was broken again.

This time the green light was coming on, but no sound and no sign of life in the screens.

Well, I'd already had to pay nintendo for the first fix (different region, no warranty, apparrently).  So I thought seeing as it's out of warranty anyway, why not open it up and have a look.

To open it you need specailist tools, I don't recommend it if you've never done anything like it before.

Anyways, the bios chip was no longer connected to the main PCB.  I simply plugged it back in and added some slips of post it note to stop it coming off again.

You can see in the picture, the chip easily plugs back onto that white clip on the board.

Once it was back on. the DS has been working fine.

DS 2 Peices


Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Well something more appropriate i guess would be my ongoing issue with DS's that have had screens replaced.

if you could describe something for me

as the unit will not power ,,, plug in the charger, if it is as i suspect you will get an orange light illuminate for 1 second, after it goes off the unit is unresponsive until you unplug and replug the charger.

if this describes your problem i would be most interested to hear weather you used the ORIGINAL screen or if it is a replacement screen

thanx
