    Well, I actually sent in for a brand new top screen from powergamingparts.com. Should I try to send that back?

    Hey I have the same problem. I opened up my DS and found out the the screen was fine. The problem was that the ribbon wire connecting the screen to the mother board was slightly torn. I don't have a site to get a new wire yet but when I do I will post it. :)

Hey , id bee happy to help :). Obviously your nintendo  DS's screen is defective. Even if you got your DS without the screen having the problem it must have a taken a while for the problem to show up. Id recommend for yo to call nintendo and see if they can give you a new nintendo system, thanks! I hope this helps.

Top screen won't lock


Hi,

The most likely reason for the screen being unstable is that when the shell casing was damaged the top screens ribbon was damaged at the same time.

You can sort both these issues out but it is not a small job, you will need a few specialist tools, a new top screen, basic soldering skills, delicate handling and plenty of patience.

If you are willing to take on this task then everything you need for the job is readily avaliable from ebay.

The stuff you need are:
1x Replacement shell/ housing/ casing for DS lite.
1x Replacement top screen for DS lite.
1x Precision tri-wing screwdriver.
1x Soldering iron (ideally with 1mm tip, but not essential) and solder.
1x Tweezers.
1x Flat tool, i.e. craft knife, flat head screwdriver.
1x Precision cross head screwdriver.

If you click on my name it will take you to my profile page, once there have a look at my guides I have written, you will need "DS lite dismantle process" and "DS lite top screen replacement".

If you require further help or advice then please get back to me and I will do my best to assist you as best I can.

Hi,
The top screen will need to be replaced. Your only options are to either to send it off for repair or to fix it yourself.

My nintendo ds top screen is white


it might be that the ribbon cable connecting the top screen with the bottom screen is loose. you can open it and fix it by yourself, if you want. if it doesn't fix the problem, is either the screen or the ribbon cable that needs replacement.
