Re: Top Screen

Sounds like a cord was protected by the piece that broke and has been cut or damaged you should send it in for a replacement if it is still under warranty

My top screen is separated from my bottom screen but it still works because a part from the right hinge broke off. The only problem is that my microphone doesn't work. How can I fix it?

There are 2 thin wires that run along the inside of the spine that clip onto two connectors on the mother board - one is the microphone. It sounds like this has become dislodged. Unscrew the back and check if one of the two wires is loose. On YouTube there is a great tutorial for "how to repair Nintendo DS Lite touch screen by supermodchips that explains very clearly where this wire should be. Good luck

My friend broke my top screen and know the top screen is all white

The hinge is disabled. Send it to Nintendo,look at the back of your DS and it will say their number. Call them and tell them that.

Nintendo Ds Lite Top Screen Problem(pls help:( )

It is probably the connectors connecting the screen to the bottom part where the CPU is. My portable Wii screen does the same thing. If you can live with it, your OK, but you might need a new DS. I recommend a DSi!

Green screen

There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.

DS broken in half

I recommend you to change the broken case, you can choose to change only the hinge and keep the good case parts or change the entire shell. By the way stores usually sell the entire shell so you can choose. As your screens are still working you are lucky because so often the brown flexible conductor to the top screen get broken so be careful.

You can also use a silicon or hard plastic case to put over your broken NDSL to keep it in place just as the fast non technical option.

Here are some links and you can find text and video guides googling around.

Shells in ebay
Other stores items



Good Luck...

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!
