The adjustment for the upper LCD is in the battery compartment, open it up, remove the battery. you will see 2 adjustment screw at the bottom, using a precision screw driver, turn it very slowly and don't push it.
Put back the battery, turn it on, adjust it again if you are not satisfied.
Hope that helps you!
most likely its the top screen ribbon.Because when you open the ds all the way it might push the ribbon in just enough to be read but when not open it cant read the top screen and it will shut down.I have instructions on how to change a top screen you can use them to put the ribbon back in. the only difference is you don't need to unplug the white and black wires.First you need a tri wing screwdriver and a cross screwdriver.You can
get both on ebay.Then their are seven screws four tri wing and three
cross.You will need to pry the back off be very careful.Start on the
side that doesn't have the on off switch and work your way around.Once
you have the back off unscrew the two cross screws that hold the logic
board on.Then unplug the white and black wifi
and mic wires they snap on and off.Then flip the logic board over by
pushing the bottom screen out.On the other side is where the ribbon for
the top screen is.To get the hinge apart their are two more cross
screws in the top left corner take them out that releases the
hinge.very carefully roll the ribbon so you can get it through the
metal ring and the wires pull the wires first.to get the top apart the
four cross screws are above and below the speakers
under those small squares.A needle will get them out easily .Once you
get the screws out then slid the back of the top up 1/8 of an inch then
pull the back off carefully.You need to push the screen out and
unsolder the speaker wires or use new ones.Make sure when putting it
back together you roll the new ribbon the right way look at the old one
to find out .Getting the old ribbon out and the new one in is a little
difficult so take it all apart first and get the wires out then the
ribbon and put the ribbon in first.
Mine works fine!!

You should have 4 files on your card
you then add the .nds game files from wherever you get them from
Make sure the card is formatted first, ie there are no other files on it. try FAT. rather than FAT 32. I can't remember which but I've had no problems with either the card or the software, best thing since sliced bread, and it only cost me a tenner.
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.
hey i think i got a solution, read the link i gave below credits to votahuan, its for adjusting screen flickers in both top and lower screen of ndsl, however i need you to do me a favor in return, hope you do not mind posting up the pics for me at firstname.lastname@example.org once you found the two hidden screw at ndsl, im just having hard time finding it in fat nds, so i need a rough i dea of where it mite be located. Heere's the link anyways :- LCD FLICKER SOLUTION
Try format the microSD memory to FAT then download again the system files and test again the card.
If not working then you have a defective card so try to find help from your seller or a method to make the card work again.
It appears there's a dault with the data/memory card.
You will need to upgrade the XMenu:
How to upgrade the XMenu: >>>> Warning! All data on the MK5 will lose after you start the upgrade! Please backup it first!! <<<< 1. Use MK5 USB Linker connect PC , and enter USB data exchange mode , PC will detect one removable disk (MK5) have inserted 2. Copy "MK5_Menu_V1.39_AUTO_Upgrade.nds" to MK5 3. Restart NDS, enter MK5 menu, choose "MK5_Menu_V1.39_AUTO_Upgrade.nds" and run it,and restart NDS. 4. When NDS power on, hold L+R+A+B+DOWN to fast format whole MK5, or you can use A+B+START+SELECT+UP to make a low-level format ,then copy all data (include folder) from this uncompressed file. 5. Now new system is ready ,restart NDS and enjoy it!
this is almost the same thing that that happened to my lil brother ...what happened with his (which probably happened to yours) was that that ds,s have batteries and sometimes they just were-out no matter how old or young the ds is thats your problem you just need to et a new ds
I finally solved the flickering problem on my DS (!), after I made my 1st engineering attempt overhaul shell, top screen and broken right hinge. Was really frustrated about the flicker afterwards, and opened up unit back up too many times to debug (risked damage to cable ribbon everytime!).
Anyway turns out there's 2 hidden screws (location: inside the battery compartment near where the front 'volume slider' is located) that adjusts the flickering (like how you need to calibrate an LCD monitor from doing same flickering effects) . You'll need a really (really!) small philips (+) screwdriver to do the adjustment.
Open up the battery cover with the VOL label upside down & facing you. The adjustment screws are recessed deep inside the plastic...a right and left screw. With the DS turned 'ON' to see the screen (whether you twist your neck to be able to see or have a mirror on the table in front of the DS)....slowly/carefully turn the screws to adjust until you like the clarity. That's it. The right screw = bottom screen. The left screw = top screen.
Now.... on to figuring out how to replace or fix the broken Power toggle switch that I snapped off! Currently using the toothpick method, but that's getting old! Any suggestions, I'd appreciate it!
