NDSL top LCD screen ebay quality?

I bought a NDSL top screen from ebay (seller from HK) to replace faulty one.  Successfully replaced, but noticed that the new screen was different from the bottom one (original).  Different in that the resolution was not as fine, noticeable jagged pixels, and when I compared side-by-side with the old removed one, looked as if the ebay one was not as 'dark'.   We have 3 NDS in this household so I also compared same game to a healthy original DS, and yep... quality is much better.  QUESTION:  are there various quality or OEM versions of LCD panels out there?  Or did I duped and bought a 1st generation one ($8), while maybe later generations are more crisp?   Obviously ebay sellers won't be too quick to admit the variations in quality.  Anyone else noticed this quality difference?  Or advice where to get a reputable good quality top screen?  Thanks.

    Thanks to DSRepair for feedback. Curious...is it really complex to replace the cable ribbon that is used on the top screen to connect to the motherboard? The black connectors on the MB is obviously easy to snap on/off. But are there complex soldering involved to get a new cable replacement to the top LCD? I haven't ventured to see how the back of LCD is connected. Or if it's not worth it, I'll invest in another top screen. Thank you!

Votahuan,

There are different quality screens arround, but the described problem has nothing to do with the quality of the screen and it looks like the resolution of the screen is not ok. The problem appears sometimes if the flatcable is put in to the connector and bend to much due to pressig it in this connector. I've seen that problem here sometimes. The screen is send to the customer in good order but is become defective due to incorrect manuals, missing warnings and customers that don't know what they are doing.

Try to contact te seller and ask him to replace the screen. Hopefully he wil do that.

John

When I turn on my NDSL the touch screen is white


The bottom screen is made up of 2 parts the screen itself and the touch screen mambrane which sits on top of the screen, if the touch part is still woking then the screen is faulty and will need to be replaced.
There are some good videos on youtube that will run you through the process of changing just the screen.

My wii console won't come on, no power.


1. Try plugging something else into the socket to ensure the socket itself is working.
2. Changing the fuse in your Wii power adapter, blown fuses are very common and this could be it.
3. If number 2 doesn't work try and get a hold of a replacement power adapter as the problem could be a break in the wire.If it is the fuse you can get one at this site its a trusted one.NDSL games console, ds games console, NDSL games console_Video games Console_www.goldenbridge.hk
