Nintendo ds top screen dull

I just got my ds yesterday for xmas. I was playing it this morning and the lights for both top and bottom screen worked fine. I quit playing for a little bit and when i turned it back on to play, the tops screen is dull but not the bottom. I don't know why. I tried to change the brightness using the (sun) icon but it didn't help. What is wrong with the screen?

Not meaning to sound patronising, but have you powered it up again?? My daughter loses battery power quickly and needs to charge it often!

SOURCE: Nintendo ds card

Obviously make sure that you are using the card properly but if you have had it for a while that's probably not even a question.

It sounds like the issue may be software related.Your DS probably needs to be repaired. If your DS is less than a year old, Nintendo will cover the cost of the repair. If the DS is older than one year, then you will probably have to pay $75 plus shipping and handling. Nintendo's number is 1800 255 3700.

SOURCE: HOW DO I ADJUST THE BRIGHTNESS ON THE NINTENDO DS?

When you start your Nintendo DS, before you choose to load the game with your touch screen, there is a little sun icon in the lower left of that screen, Touching that will adjust your brightness.

SOURCE: my original nintendo DS has little white lines in the top screen!

Well, if the lines stay on the screen even when the DS is turned off, it means the LCD screen is broken, thus the crystals are flowing and blotching. This means the screen must be repaired, however you don't have to buy a new one.

Nintendo has a page about original DS repairs Here. They also offer certain warranties, I'd see if one applies to your situation. (They also have a more broad repair page Here.)

If you feel like doing the repair yourself, it is apparently very easy and costs about $40 to replace the screen. There are many different repair tutorials online. (I just did a Google search for "DS top screen repairs") Here is one of those sites.

I hope this was of assistance.

Top half dont work


Solution:

1. IF you have R4 card in your DS, take it out.

2. Go to Settings (Little icon on the bottom of the touch screen)

3. Select Pink button

4. Select "GBA Mode" (pink button on the right)

5. Select "Touch screen"


NOTE:

This is mainly affective for GBA games, not DS games unfortunately.
If you are really that desperate to play DS games properly, then either hope you can still claim it on warranty and/or buy a brand new DS (maybe even the new DSi).



Hope I helped

Memory loss


Quick, check every menu on the game. This is what happened to a friend who had Mario Kart. "Deleat data" was accadently selected when that person was trying to edit something. The data was lost. Check all menus. The wrong thing could have been selected. If you cannot find a way to deleat data, then make sure you never turned off the DS, DS light, DSi, or whatever when saving. If it was turned off when saving, then the following can happen: Nothing, Data Erase, or data destruction. Data destruction means the cartridge is ruined. That didn't happen to you, though. I am sorry, but you must start over.

Screens flickering then switches off


Sounds like a hardware problem. If you got it for xmas then it's still under warranty.

Nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?


When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu.
One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.

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
