Doubtful, though I've not had one with a gimped antenna so I can't say for sure...

Probability is very high that failure to start is related to the ribbon cable(s) not being seated properly into the connector(s). This is a common issue during re-assembly. Often, these cables LOOK like they are re-seated properly - but they are not.

First suspect is the ribbon cable that passes through the hinge. Where it connects into the top board is where I encounter problems often. If this cable is not seated deeply enough into the connector - and perfectly perpendicular - your reassembled DS will NOT boot.

I always temporarily snap everything together and test boot prior to screwing everything back together. Even with care and experience I have to go back to this connector and re-seat the cable about 1 out of every 2 times.

Good luck...

Nintendo ds lite keeps shutting off

you probably have a power shortage when you move the screen. the only way to fix this is to open the ds, make sure everything is in the right place, and put it back together. i cant promise this will work, but it should.

My nintendo wont turn on what do i do

If you get no power at all, then you likely have a blow F1 or F2 internal fuse. This can be repaired by Nintendo. You can also do this yourself IF you are good at taking things apart and putting them back together. Don't take this undertaking lightly as the DS Lite can easily be damaged further if you don't know what you are doing. However there are many tutorials that can be found by using google to guide you through the process.

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side

The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!
