    I have been told that it is most probably a bad motherboard if you cannot see a picture even with an external monitor hookup. Try hooking up an external monitor, if you can see anything on it, it may be something simple like you switched off the monitor with on of the function buttons, or something more complex like a bad cathode ray.

    Was using my laptop when all of a sudden the screen got really dark and was barely able to see anything. Now I cannot see anything at all unless I hook it up to my TV. What needs to be done to fix this?

    Since 2 days my screen goes black without notice. Once I hook up to an external monitor and use the screen switch function and adjust the settings (back to 1280x768) I was able to switch back to the notebook screen, but this morning it turned black after I disconnected the external monitor.

    Anybody any idea/advise. Thanks a lot.

The Nintendo DS lite powers on, but the screen is blank..

When you power the unit on, watch to see if either screen flashes. It's a very quick white flash. If that happens, the LCD that DIDN'T flash is bad and needs to be replaced. The unit will shut off immediately afterwards. If the unit stays on but there is no display on either screen, the board is bad and the unit is scrap unless you want to disassemble and reflow. This is a rare problem but it does happen.

Ds lite battery wont charge i have charged it overnight but nothing the green light goes on but that is it


If the green light is turning on and the screens are staying blank it is a problem with he L2 fuse on the motherboard (located just below the power button).

This can be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not drop it to a local repair shop it can be fixed for about €20.

Upper screen blank

That could be normal. Some games don't use both screens. If it never works with any games, or in the main menu then the screen has failed. You will need to call Nintendo customer service for a repair (probably free under Warranty) if that's the case. Hope this helps.
