When I turn my Nintendo DS Lite on, the touch screen works fine but the top screen just goes plain white. I've tried turning it on and off but that didn't work. The screen is just white and that...


sounds like It is broken.
unless you get the startup screen beefore it goes out white i'd say something was damaged in the screen or the wiring connecting the screen to the unit.

If you see any lines on it, It was most likely over extended open and the wires inside have become frayed or damaged. If you try fully opening the top screen and push inward you may have temporary relief of this issue. could try puling out also but either way this would just be to test if thats the issue. dont pull or puch to hard as you could damage the unit further.

if it is a pure white screen the screen may have cracked or had something spilled on it which would damage the screen beyond use.

Either way, the system is damaged and needs to be replaced or repaired. Price wise it is more advisable to just buy a new unit rather then purchase parts and repair it.

DS Lite, the top screen goes black when opened the whole way when the game is opened to a 90 degree angle the screen is clear and works fine.


There are a few things that could have happened, the most likely that one of you cable clips is loose, and when you open it fully, it pulls it out just enough so that the connection is lost.

Your going to need to open your DS, (the forms at www.powergamingparts.com are the best forms to find these instructions) then just disable your clip, and reinsert it, and then close the clip, and put you DS back together. Just ask if you need any additional help.

I ve just opened the box and turned on phone.Nothing on screen!


send it back. It sounds like even if your were to fix this by taking out the battery and putting it back in, it should not do that new. Get it replaced ASAP

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

Top screen goes opaque white, but looks fine with pressed L button.


Puchigusu,

You have a defective flatcable of the upper screen, or the calble is not correct seated in the connector on the systemboard.
The upper screen connector is on the bottom side of the Left button-switch.

If the flatcable is defective (most likely because of the open-close actions every time the DS Lite is used) you have to replace the complete upper screen (the cable cannot be removed without replacing the whole screen).

First try to reseat the flatcable in the connector. If that is not working, replace the screen (manuals how to open the DS Lite etc etc can be found on the Internet)

Colors are distorting e.g. Blue streak across top of viewing field


unfortunately not. the discoloration is caused by the light filter getting fried due to excessive dust and heat. and you cannot purchase the parts individually. you'll have to replace the entire optical engine.

Picture faded with white broken lines


Hi, the problems you describe are indeed related... the cable that carries the data from the lower section (mainboard) to the top screen is also responsible for the sound and the speakers are connected to this cable near the top LCD screen. It sounds like the cable has become damaged and will need replacing which unfortunatley means a new top screen due to the way the cable is connected to the screen. I come across this problem frequently and I charge customers £35 for a replacement screen and fitting.
