Top screen either has a loose connection or went out all together.
I would be happy to take a look at it for you.

ooohhh...


You have the Yellow light of death. The YLOD is the Red Rings of Death, except for the PS32_bing.gif.

I recommend Wiredextreme.com to service your system (if it's out of warranty). About half the price of a Sony2_bing.gif repair and you get YOUR system back, unlike when you send it to Sony2_bing.gif where you get some other random refurbished system. WE has a automatic 90-day warranty, the same as Sony, but WE also gives you the option to extend the warranty up to 4 years. the WE warranty covers the entire system, not just what they fixed on it.

If it is still under warranty, set up a service request with Sony using these instructions:

http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/106/session/L3NpZC9UTFFuUjNWag==

Make sure you erase all of your personal info off of your PS3 and follow the instructions on the page above.

Good luck!

Oh, and if you send your system in to Sony, you will get a different copy of the game that is stuck in your system packaged separately and later than when you will get your system back from Sony.

I'm 90% sure of this. The only thing this doesn't explain is why your console doesn't come on everytime you press the button. Unless the power button is blinking and when you press it, it stops blinking and then you have to press it again to tunr it on.

SOURCE: ds lite screen flash white tehm off

Hi,

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.

It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.

The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.

My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.

This should solve your issue.

If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.

Hope this helps,

Regards,
SOD69

Hi my ds lite wont charge it will start up fine then just turn off


When you turn it on do you see either the top or bottom screen flash for a second? This is part of a start up test the system does to make sure the screens are working properly.

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


its possibly a software issue, babe theres some corrupt data with the os, if it still has a warranty i would recommend sending it in for repair. im pretty sure they only charge 40-50usd for repair otherwise and it would give you a chance to purchase/renew your warranty through them

My ds wont turn on all i do is plug in the charger then flick the switch really fast then the light turns on for half a second then stops wat do i do I came home one day from a trip, I decided to use my DS...


Do any screens flash?

I would say its a fuse / grounding out / or battery is destroyed.


If you can, try a different battery.. Has your battery and/or DS had any previous water damage?

My top screen wont work


Your ribbon cable may be damaged or it might have come loose from the board. The LCD might also be bad. Either way the system would have to be taken apart and this is an undertaking on the DS. If it's under warrenty call Nintendo and have them replace it. If not you'll want to find a repair center. I've done these repairs many of times and unless you really know what you're doing with the DS it's easy to break it much worse than it started out. There are plenty of these on ebay where people have simply made it worse.
