    I have the same problem. The two little black things that hold the ribbons tight are broken and I was wondering if you could tell me how to fix this.

    Thanks

Well, looking at the diagnosis there are two possible problems. Youcould have both, or just one. Here they are and the solution.

1. Blown F2 fuse. The F1 and 2 fuses get blown most often. Between the two, it is the F2 if the system charges. Here is a websitethat will teach you how to solder it back together. This site has oldand new DS systems on it. Before you solder make sure to check that itis broken with a multimeter.

2.Misconnected Ribbons. The easier, and more common problem is that acable isn't in all the way, or it is crooked. You should just check allyour ribbons, and double check them. Take them out, put them in again,make sure all the fixings (little black things that hold the littleribbons) are in, and the snaps are snapped. If you have lost a fixing,just post and say that and I will tell you how to MAKE a new one.

If the system was working fine before with the corrosion, I don't believe it would affect it after.

This works for me, so good luck. Remember to post if you have any more questions.

I turn on my ds green light comes on bottom screen flashes then turns off


    • 1 Turn off the Nintendo DS, and place it on the charger. Leave the device for 45 minutes to allow it to gain a full charge, and then power it back on. Weak Nintendo ds lite batteries may cause screen flicker.
    • 2 Turn off the DS, and remove all game cartridges. Turn the system back on to launch the main menu.
    • 3 Click the small sun icon to open the brightness menu. Adjust the brightness level using your stylus. Turn it up to max to improve back lighting.
    • 4 Check that the Nintendo DS is open and in the locked position. It must be open to its default position to operate properly.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok


One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off


Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

You need to check the top screen ribbon is fully inserted into to place on the board. A green light and flash of the screen within a second means ribbon not connecting right
