Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Slight damage by impact

Something was dropped on my son's nintendo ds lite. It has a thin line on the bottom screen now. It is not a complete break...not even a hairline crack...Just visible on the screen about half way over and about 1/4" down. My son says sometimes when he plays it, the screen with "shimmey" but not always. Is this fixable or is it ready to die? Is it something I can fix...with instruction? If it is fixable, but I can't, where do I take it? Also, is it feasible to have it fixed financially. It's my son's most prized possession. If we can't fix it, is there a way to transfer memory, etc. to a new one?

Thanks

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.

Slight damage by impact.


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

Nintendo DS Lite won't come on


@JoepIt, you have a defective LCD screen. Could be upper of lower (I thing for 99% the upper).


@pietras1422, on the mainboard next to the power-switch, there is a resistor. If could be loose or is missing completely. Problem will occur when the DS Lite is dropped to the ground

Single verticle black line on top screen of ds lite:(


Sounds like you have something wrong with the LCD screen, and there isn't much you can do about it except buy another top/bottom piece from NINTENDO.

Nintendo DS lite - dropped


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.

Non-working top screen


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 is normal.

Top screen of ds lite has lines


Get a tri winged screwdriver (can be bought from www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/nintendo-wing-screwdriver/p-1169.html) take the rubber pads off and undo your DS. Check the screen connections attatched to the speaker circuit board and the connections on the main circuit board. If the cable looks to have a slight crack in it or looks to be excessively bent the buy a new connector. (you can buy them from www.consoleparts4u.co.uk/nintendo-ds-screen-connecting-ribbon-cable-107-p.asp. Hope this helps :-)

Bottom screen


Sounds like the screen is broken. It may be fixable, but you're likely better off buying a new DS.
