When you dropped it you may have moved the ribbon cable behind the left hinge causeing it o not read the top screen correctly, or you busted the screen alltogether, I will replace the screen for $24

Nintedo Ds Wont turn on! Even if Charged!

Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.

Top Screen on DS only shows lines

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

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.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white

if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie

A nintedo ds

Your machine is very likely to have been wrecked. Sorry, but if you get your mind round that now, any success at all you have recovering it will come as a bonus rather than a disappointment. At least it didn't get dropped into seawater. Your absolute first priority is to take the battery out. Look for a big door on the bottom held in place with a single crosshead screw. Open that, remover the battery, blot it dry with a tissue and then leave the door open (with all the bits kept together so you don't lose any of them). Have a look at the battery terminals (both on the battery and in the DS). The state of the positive terminals is usually quite a good indicator of the amount of damage that's happened inside. If the plating on one set of terminals is badly corroded, then the overall outlook is bleak. If the terminals are still clean, then there's a better chance it will work to some extent, though what state the displays will be in remains to be seen. My next move would probably be to rinse the DS out with three or four changes of distilled water - even if all that was in the toilet when the DS was dropped in was fresh water. After that comes the drying process. If it was me, I'd take the DS to bits, but unless you have an established track record putting things like this back together again, I'd recommend that you don't disassemble any further. Blot what you can get to dry with a tissue, then leave the DS to stand on edge in a warm (but not hot), dry, draughty place for a couple of weeks. The secret is to let it dry out naturally rather than to try to force it, and dry for longer than you expect to be necessary. Be very patient. Once you are confident all the moisture is gone, you can put the battery back in, recharge it, and see whether anything works. Best of luck. Post any follow-on questions as comments to this one, and I'll keep an eye on it for a while. A.
