White top screen

I replaced my ds lite's top screen. I can barely see an image. The screen is for the most part white. Everything else works properly.

    Thank you for the feedback. I ended up ordering a new screen ( I had everything hooked up properly). Now the ds does not work at all. I figure I must have broke a fuse. Bought a new ds. :)

The same thing happened to me, If you bust the part where the light for the power and the light for the charging indicator, slide the top screen to the right and you should see a bundle of cords, one of these must be disconnected.

DS Lite top screen and mic not working properly. Good ole boyfriend tried to replace the casing and the mic on my nds lite, but apparantly, I'm the more technical talent of the two. The problem...


Hi - either the cable is not ALL the way in the connector ( double check) or the cabels damaged after install ( common) you need to repalce the entire screen on a ds lite as the cable is not detachable.
as for the mic - you will need some PCB rework on the motherboard to rectify that I'm afraid, contact us at www.dsdoctor.co.uk if you need any more help :-)

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.

Regards,

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

DS lite console- after fitting new top screen?


Hmmm,sound like you may have not connected the screen properly OR more seriously you could have blown a fuse on the Motherboard.I recently bought a DS from E-bay with this problem.Its a matter of soldering across the fuse to bridge the gap.Its a VERY VERY small fuse so it will take a steady hand.Have a look on Google for DS lite blown fuse and you should get a few images showing you wich fuse to BRIDGE.Its usually the F2 fuse,but after I had done this the DS would work but it would not charge.After a bit of fiddling I found that the F1 fuse had also gone and apparently this is for the Charging procedure.You may be able to get replacement fuse for it but I couldnt find them anywhere.
