Question about Nintendo DS Console

Nintendo DS Touch Screen has all these really distorted colors

Hi, its me again. As I've said, I fix broken hinges, and when I put the DS back together, the touch screens colors were very distorted. (Not when I touch it, just looking at it). I was wondering which of the three ribons would cause this, and how I could fix it without buying a new bottom screen. The words and other stuff still show up, but they are really funky colors. The battery is almost dead, but I don't think that would affect the colors of the screen. Welcome to any advice.

    Well, thanks for the help, but I can't get it to work, I think that there is dust in it, so I'm just going to list it on eBay.

    I believe that the top screen is malfunctioning because I just found out that for some reason what is supposed to be on the top screen is on the bottom screen and what is on the bottom screen is on the bottom screen. The top screen is just white. The two pictures put together must be what is the problem.

Well it would be the bottom lcd not the bottom touch since that is just a clear peice of plastic when removed from the lcd it would be your bigger ribbon that would be your display and smaller you touch screen.

try adjusting the ribbon for the screen make sure it clean as well and in good contact with the board.

    i would use a can of air or air compressor to lightly blow out the contacts on the ribbon and inspect the ribbon for and debree if there is and smudges ect on it then it needs to be cleaned off.

My Nintendo ds goes on them off


well, both of you have a broken fuse, and kgould3 has a broken hinge and screen.

1. well, the it is fairly easy to fix a broken hinge, and the screen is a bit tricky, but www.powergamingparts.com has awesome (free) repair guides that are easy to follow and with a little time and patience you can fix that in a jiffy (they even sell everything you need)

2. the fuses, on the other hand are really difficult.
a. you might just want to sell it on ebay and people make a living off fixing and reselling the product
b. if you really want to fix it, then you are going to need to resolder the F1 or F2 or both fuses

if you guys want info on it, just notify me and i will give you the details

sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

Touch screen not working


Well, did you call nintendo to see if you were under warranty?
why did you try? do you have a degree in engineering? Regardless, now you have voided your warranty. Call them and see.

Broken nintendo ds lite hinge. Do I send it away for repairs or get a new console?


Nintendo will fix the hinges depending on a few things, first thing would be to determine how the hinges were broken. The hinges are tested before they leave the factory, the only way that they actually break would be because of physical damage/impact. Physical damage is not covered under the manufact warranty so you would get a discounted price depending on if your under warranty or not. Regardless giving them a call and having their techs fix them will be the best bet, not only because you know it will be fixed right and your warranty will start over the day it gets repaired.
