The Screen could be broken, the ribbon cable is not plugged in properly or could be torn.

    You know you can repair it your self, its not that hard, the only things you will need would be a small philips head screwdriver and a replacement ribbon cable

DS lite screen


Hahahahaha that is how it works but if you go to the little DS at the bottom of the touch screen and tap it there will be a fixer manual use it and when you are done the system will shut off and just turn it on again and also the touch screen is the most important thing on your ds so keep it scratchless and clean! On some games the top screen is an important thing and somtimes it doesnt show anything

Ds wont read card


Sounds like a dirty connection or a bad chip to me.

Try simply blowing into the slot and along the chip's connections before inserting the chip. If that doesn't work, and you are feeling brave, use lint free cloth (available at staples) and some Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol/Acetone (nail polish remover) to LIGHTLY swab the connection. Let dry completely, then insert chip.

If that doesn't do the trick, I would declare either the chip or the DS bad. Does the DS work with other chips? If it doesn't, chances are the connections between the game chip and the DS circuit board have been loosened to the point where the DS is nonfunctional.

Dual screen


You shouldn't need anything other than a working DS and the game. If it isn't working, then try it on someone else's DS to make sure it's not the game, if it's not, are you having problems with your DS and the top screen?

Top Screen of DS Lite broken


Replace upper screen and the Upper front bezel.
Or replace the upper screen and the complete DS Lite Housing. You can find them on the well known auction sites. Please be aware that you must know what your are doing. If in doubt, send it to Nintendo or a local Nintendo repair service

Is this the top screen or the bottom screen? The top isn't meant to react to the stylus.
