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 ds lite will turn on and you can see the screen above but the bottom screen stays white. You can touch the bottom screen and it appears to respond to some interaction. What can I do to get things...


if you feel confident enough to open up the ds check ribbon cable is tightly in the connector, the clasp that hold the cable has a littke brown flip hinge on it and is quite fragile so take care.

You will have to gentley push the screen up towards you to find the riibon cable connecter. If the cable seems fine then the screen probably needs changing, but the screen is made up 2 parts, the screen and the touch screen membrane which lies on top and held in place by a bit of adhesive.

You have to seperate them by gently prizzing them apart, if you dont feel confident doing this you can buy replacement bottem screens fully made up, but it would be a shame to do this as the touch mambrane part of the screen seems like it is working. hope this helps a bit and good luck

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.

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.

DS Powering On


Hi, if the bottom screen briefly comes on with a white screen. There is a issue with the top screen, it is either the top screen itself or if there is damage to the hinge it will more than likely be the cheaper option the ribbon cable that threads though the hinge to the top screens PCB board.

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
