Something was dropped on my son's ds lite. Since then, there is a thin line halfway across and about 1/4" down from the top of the bottom viewing screen. The "break" is not all the way through...not even a hairline crack, just visible when playing. My son says that sometimes, not always, when playing the screen kind of "shimmeys." Is this something that can be fixed, or is it about to die? If is can be fixed, where would I take it? And would it be feasible to do so financially? Could I fix it...with instruction?
Dont worry its not about to die but................. that hairline crack could expand and to avoid this you could start by not hitting it hard or moving the pen past that line to much. You could ask any videogame seller (in stores obviously) were it can be fixed believe me they told me were this guy is that fixed my gamecube console and ds but scince i dont know were you live i dont think it would be usefull to tell you. I hope this really helps you and plkease post me a comment. By the way if you know someone near San diego that fixes ds stuff tell me because the guy i know doesnt know how to fix something. tnx

If you have a warranty send it to Nintendo to fix it.They'll might replace the screen.If there unable to fix it or don't have a warranty just buy a new one.(PS.The games he'd play on the old ds dosen't save the games on it.It saves on the DS game card.)Hope I could help.
It is a problem with the flatcable of the upper TFT screen or the TFT itself. Only solution is treplacement of the TFT screen (flatcable is not separate replaceble). Because you say it is not even one year old, you still have warranty. Send it to Nintendo for repair!
Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.
Components may have come loose on the board, or damaged solder joints. Water damage can sometimes only appear after water has had time to seep, unless knock helped throw some residual water around inside, onto things it shouldn't touch.
If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game
play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create
the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has
been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo
DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the
screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this
Hi, the problems you describe are indeed related... the cable that carries the data from the lower section (mainboard) to the top screen is also responsible for the sound and the speakers are connected to this cable near the top LCD screen. It sounds like the cable has become damaged and will need replacing which unfortunatley means a new top screen due to the way the cable is connected to the screen. I come across this problem frequently and I charge customers £35 for a replacement screen and fitting.
