Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken

Hi my son's ds (not lite) hinge was broken so I tried to change case - first the main connector on the circuit board where the brown flat connector to main screen has now broken (it does not hold the cable properly) so unless you hold this down powers up then switches off. But even with this held down it works but main screen is blank. Also the connector (small one of two beneath another connector nearest top of ds) is bent and keeps coming out so now the touch screen does not work either. Help? My left hinge was also broke.My brother bought a new case and tryed to replace it, and when he got done my ds was flickering on both screens, but only on the menu screen. It does not flicker on the main screen when you first turn on the ds, or on any game or, pictochat. PLEACE HELP!!!

If you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.
Thanks

I changed ds case all the screens work and buttons but when you touch screen with pen nothing happens


unfortunatly the ds was designed to kept in the case it came in so you'll always have problems changing the case as there are so many little things that can go wrong, in my experience your problem is either the little ribbon cable near the wireless connector is not quite in properly or the cable itself has a broken track if thats not hte problem invest in a new touch screen panel

My sons ds lite will not turn on the green light comes on and a white light flickers on bottom screen and thats all, I changed the battery and still no luck. Help! thanks


it's likely that the top screen ribbon cable has either become damaged or loose, the entire top screen will probably need replacing (along with the casing if the hinge is broken).. if you are not confident with technical or fiddley things I wouldnt recommend attempting it yourself.

Ds lite top screen


Yes its fixable but it depends on what has broken.
There are two possibilities the small barrel hinge has broken, this is just a case of fitting a new one by opening the case, unscrew the light and gently pulling the top of the case away till you can change the barrel hinge.
The other one is the case has broken and is not holding the barrel hinge, can bodge it with some glue sometimes but most often you need a new case.

Ds lite


sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

Touch screen not working


Well, did you call nintendo to see if you were under warranty?
why did you try? do you have a degree in engineering? Regardless, now you have voided your warranty. Call them and see.

Reseating Touch Screen Ribbon Cables


The cable for the touchscreen is one with 4 conductors that connect directly to the overlay on the face of the LCD. The flat ribbon connector on the main board is quite delicate. The three connectors for the bottom screen are on the right side of the component side of the DS phat board. The touchscreen is labeled P6. On the DS Lite, the connector is closer to the R button.

Good Luck
