Either going to have to find a place that you can buy the ribbon and replace it to connect to the lcd at top, or perhaps even replace the lcd at top and the ribbon, otherwise just send it in to NIntendo I am sure they would fix it for a price, call them.

Nintendo ds lite one of the hinges is broken and cracked just along a bit. It happened yesterday thought it would be fine but every time I close it it turns off. It was never dropped so I don't know how it...


Hi,

It could be shutting off for a number of reasons...

The most likely is that when it received the damage to the hinge it has also damaged the top screens ribbon and so when it is closed the ribbon loses its connection and this shuts it down.

If you wnted to check the ribbon you can dismantle the DS (unless you have a warranty in which case just send it off for repair) and check the ribbon for any damage.

Here is a dismantling guide i have written to help you take it apart... When you free up te top screens ribbon inspect it carefully, ideally with a magnifying glass to be thorough... if there is any damage to the ribbon then your best bet is to replace the screen (a new one can be bought from ebay for a very reasonable price). and fit it to resolve the issue.

The top screen of our DS is frozen white and blotcy.


Well that can mean only one thing and that is that the screen is damaged either from being dropped or water damage or from being thrown or chewed on which dogs are famous for chewing on things. So what you need to do is either get the screen replaced through the manufacturer or you can go the cheaper route and buy a new DS.

My sons ds lite will not turn on the green light comes on and a white light flickers on bottom screen and thats all, I changed the battery and still no luck. Help! thanks


it's likely that the top screen ribbon cable has either become damaged or loose, the entire top screen will probably need replacing (along with the casing if the hinge is broken).. if you are not confident with technical or fiddley things I wouldnt recommend attempting it yourself.

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.

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.

Dropped laptop, color on screen not natural


The problem could be that you jolted a heat sync or fan loose that cools the video adapter. If you power off the machine and let it sit for several minutes and then reboot and the same thing happens, its a heat issue. Laptops have the graphics card in a chip form soldered to the motherboard, thats not the issue. Undoubtedly you have jostled something loose. If in fact it is a heat issue, you can have someone take the laptop apart and reseat the heat sync or maybe check on the fan that cools the video adapter.

DS 2 Peices


Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Nintendo DS Lite bottem screen is white.


hi their is only i thing you can try yourself as if it is anything else it probably requires soldering and new parts.
on the bottom screen their will be a ribbon its really thin and will clip onto the board from the screen the same with the top one the only thing you can do yourself is check that the ribbon hasnt come out of the housing and is causing a bad conection it might have a sticky bit of thin tape over the conector this holds the ribbon in and prevents it from moving out of the connector you will need to check both ends of this.
try pushing the ribbon back into the conector without removing the tape and see if this solves the problem.
If you can see the clips holding the ribbon into the connector you can undo these should just clip open the remove the ribbon and put it back in again the push clips back to lock position.
If this dont solve your problem then the chances are you need the screen replacing but your problem is the same with mobile phoned and removing the ribbon and putting it back in again usually solves this problem let me know how you get on ok
