The top screen will need replaced. Not adviseable if you have not worked on such items before. There are people on eBay who will fix it for you.

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.

Tip

DS Lite Top Screen Replacement


Hi,

Has your top screen devlouped a fault or stopped working altogether? Here is my guide to re-connecting a new top screen and fitting a new one.

Take the DS lite apart (a tri wing screwdriver is needed and can be found cheap on ebay), disconnect the top screen by lifiting the motherboards connector flap (located near the hindge) and then re-insert it, try switching it on again and see if thats sorted it. If not then you will need to replace the screen. (If you need help taking the DS lite apart then check out my other tips and tricks posted on here).

A new screen can be brought on ebay for a reasonable price, there will be a little soldering required as the speakers will need to be de-soldered from the old screen and re-soldered onto the new one (please take note of which wire goes where).

Remove the screws from the lid of the DS lite (4x screws hidden under little coloured squares above and below both speaker outlets) slide the top/outer part away from the hindges, it will move about 5mm and then you can lift it off... Gently pull the ribbon through the hindge so that it is free from the bottom part of the DS lite, pry the screen away from the shell (a small amount of force may be required to remove it) remove the front plastic part of the screen (with the respective DS lite coloured frame, de-solder the speakers, re-attatch them to the new screen, place the new screen into the housing along with the speakers and put back the wifi and mic to their original position if they got moved, you will notice a slot in the hindge where the ribbon goes in, this is for the ribbon to easily slide back into the bottom part of the DS lite... pop the ribbon through and then re-attatch it to the motherboard with the connector, pressing down the connectors flap.

Screw the DS lite back together, after this you will need to place the plastic sheet with the respective DS lite coloured frame back onto the top screen... The reason you don't put it on any time before that is if you put it on prior to putting the new screen in place you will have great difficulty trying to get it correctly aligned.

If you find that your DS lite now doesn't want to stay powered on please refer to my other tips and tricks I have issued on here.

I hope this helps and have to say that I accept no responsability for any damage that may occur to your DS lite when following these tips.

Regards,

The top screen of my Nintendo DS Lite keeps flickering


Hi,

This is most likely caused by either a loose connection or a faulty screen.

If it's under warranty i'd suggest sendng it in otherwise you can either take it to a local repair shop or repair it yourself.

Firstly when you take the ds apart disconnect the top screen and then re-attatch it just to be sure if its the connection or not, if a re-connection works then your sorted... if not you will have to replace the screen.

The screen can be bought from ebay. You will also have to do a bit of soldering as the speakers will need to be removed from the old screen and soldered onto the new one.

If you need any more help with changing the screen then give me a message and I will do my best to help you out.

Ds lite top screen showing colours and lines but thats all can u help?


If you Feel confident enough to open up the ds check the top screen ribbon cable is as tight as possible, its at the top end of the board near the hinge.

The ribbon cable could be faulty do to rubbing on the inside of the hinge, check if the image on the screen changes when you flip the lid towards you and back, if it does chances are the screen will need to be reworked or changed. hope this helps.

DS Lite has red lines in top screen?


It could also be running fluid from the screen's gel padding. I doubt that, though... It's best to buy or order a replacement screen. It's actually not too expensive and is not too hard to DIY. The problem with that, is it's really easy to accidentally break something while opening up a DS, especially the DS lites. Another problem is, you need a triwing screwdriver to open up the DS, which can only be found online. So, if you don't want to buy anthing online, you should just ask gamestop or something to repair it for you. It'll come at a price though...
