Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Nintendo DS snapped in half.

OK, so I got a Nintendo DS from a friend who got it from etc... and it was broken when I got it. somebody whacked it up pretty well, and the top screen has been completely severed. The black wireless antenna, the white wire (dunno what it does, and the top monitor's flex cable. The DS also has an issue powering on. It's green power light will turn on, and the touch screen will flash white very quickly, and the whole unit will shut off. Does the DS require an attached top screen to function properly? Or can it run with the top screen disconnected?

If it can run with the top screen gone, then can anyone tell me why the DS can't power on correctly?

The main board looks to be in working condition, no missing bits (as far as I can tell [and I've scoured this board for ANYTHING that could be wrong]), and I've detached all the broken wires (named above).

Top screen is non readable nintendo ds


Hi you have done one of two things to your ds.
1) you have somehow unstuck the top plastic protection screen that covers the lcd screen and re-stuck it but have got fingerprints etc on it, hence the blur.
2) The more obvious thing is you dropped the de or gave it a bang and the ribbon feeding from the top screen to the lower screen through the left hand hinge is damaged or it has become slightly unclipped where it meets the motherboard.

Either way you will need to take the DS apart to solve. It can be tricky so if you are not confident bring it to a repair shop, it is an easy fix and wont cost the earth to fix.

If it is still under warranty send it back to Nintendo to fix.

Yo!
what file are you reffering to ? where you input details like trainer name etc.?

hope this helps. let me know how you get on, ok

Nintendo DS Lite will not turn on.


Call the Target support for phones of the service workshops near you or try contacting the Nintendo support site.

The problem seems like the electronics inside the device got affected by the drop and you may have loosen wires or battery contacts, broken switches, etc. From simple things to more difficult ones.

So you may get a quote for the repair that can reach more than half the price of the unit. That is the dilema on repair returns to oficial service workshops.

DS blinks and will not turn on


Hi
As complicated a console as the DS is, it is not surprising you have a problem after changing a case. Sometime the little snap on wires do not snap on right.  You need to go back in and  make sure the ribbons and snap on connectors are sucured. The ribbon and wire that runs from top half through the hinge needs to roll up one turn before in the transition from the top to bottom half.  You may have the ribbon upside down in the connector.

    First DS (system you are transferring the ID from)

  1. Turn on any Nintendo WFC-compatible game and access the WFC Setup Utility. (Consult the game manual for the game you are playing for specific information.)
  2. Tap "Options."
  3. Tap "Transfer Nintendo WFC Configuration."
  4. Tap "Ok", then tap "Ok" again.
  5. Second DS (system you are transferring the ID to)

  6. Remove all games from the DS you wish to transfer the settings to, then turn the system on.
  7. On the DS's main menu, select "DS Download Play."
  8. Select "Nintendo WFC Configuration Transfer."
  9. Tap "Yes" when asked if you want to download the software. The word "Downloading..." will appear.
  10. First DS

  11. On the DS with Nintendo WFC configuration, tap "Ok" to confirm that you wish to transfer the configuration.
  12. Second DS (system you are transferring the ID to)

    • If there is an existing configuration on the new DS, tap "Ok" to confirm that you wish to overwrite the existing configuration.
    • Once the transfer begins, it will take about half a minute.

    Both DS Systems

  13. Once the configuration has been transferred, tap "Ok" to save the changes and shut each system off.

All of the Friend Codes you had given or received on the previous Nintendo DS will now work in the Nintendo DS system you transferred the ID to.


I just copied that from nintendo.com's customer service for you... it's better than how I could explain it.
