I take it the item is a ds Phat??

Problem is the same if its a Lite just a different part.

DS Phat - you need the screen cable that runs between the bottom board and the top connsctor board.

DS Lite, the screen and cable are all in one, so you need a new top screen

I have a black ds lite and i accently dropped it in my pool and it turns on and it dosent show the picture and it used to show lines.

When any electronic is dropped, you must take the battery out right away. Also, you should put the device and the battery in a jar of rice because the rice absorbs any moisture quickly. Your DS might be water-logged. Meaning, the water has corroded the wires inside and made it difficult or impossible for electricity to flow. However, because it DOES turn on, the problem could be with the screen only. DS replacement screens are available on ebay, but require self-installation. Buying a screen will not necessarily fix your DS.

If your DS is still under warranty or if you have home owner's insurance, I would call Nintendo and tell them that your DS is defective and stopped working and that you would like to send it in and get it replaced. Home owner's insurance may or may not cover your DS, it depends on your coverage and deductable. Hope this helps.

Top screen of d.s light only shows blue red cyhan purpe and black

Shoot Nephew !!

No being realistic. The DS has an integrated LCD screen which is "tricky" to replace. We charge £22.00 to replace the damaged screen plus £4 P&P. Please contact for details. If you want to try yourself I will send instructions but most guys try and fail ending up buying a second screen for me to replace.
