The led light has burned out on the screen and needs to be replaced. Unless you can still see light around the edges and then the screen itself needs to be replaced.

You can use a service like http://www.fixmygadget.com to get your DS repaired. It can be easier than trying to do repairs yourself.

SOURCE: bottom screen

I disagree, its much cheaper to replace the screen yourself, with a steady hand, a tri-wing screwdriver and some other household tools AND A GOOD GUIDE TO FOLLOW, you can do the work yourself in under an hour

(and screen calibration can be done yourself with the built in calibration tool when you start the DS without a game in)

The only severe warning i can give for doing it yourself is this...... IF you buy a screen it probably will not have the thin foam backing that the original screen has. you MUST back the metal underside of the new screen with a non-conductive material before you fit it, so as it does not short out the mini-board (i find sellotape or masking tape does the job well)

SOURCE: touch screen doesn't light up

Your problem is with the LCD behind the touch screen. The bottom scren on your DS is actually two screens. An LCD and a touch screen on top of it. Either your cable has come loose inside the DS or the LCD is possibly bad. This can be fixed.

The other option is that the electronics feeding the LCD have gone bad in which case you might as well buy a new DS. But check the screen first.

If the DS is under a year old you can send it to Nintendo for free repair.

hi friend,i had the same problem....the small cable that you replaced is probably not placed in the connector properly .when you put it in you might have put it under the connector instead of upon it. retry it ,i'm sure it will work.. good luck

My ds can't calibrate the touch screen


Touch screen might need to be replaced OR the ribbon cable might have gotten loose/ the little black connector for the ribbon cable of the touch screen (not bottom lcd screen) might have gotten loose. I wouldn't recommend opening your DS up. I did that and I broke several things trying to replace my casing. Just try to send it in to a repair service, most of them do it for around 15~20 dollars.

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.

Have you tried just using the Normal DS buttons rather than the touch screen? I don't know how bad your touch screen is calibration is for your AR (mines pretty close to fine), but if you find that the touch-screen is frustrating you too much, just use the normal DS buttons. Sure it will be a bit slower, but it won't be as frustrating.

Nintendo touch screen


Have you dropped the DS? It could be that the ribbon cable on the bottom LCD has come adrift.
Does the top screen display the Nintendo logo when switched on?

Touch screen's going black.


Your back light for your ds and sp may have went out, unfortunately it is impossible to fix a lcd screen with the black light going out other than buying a new screen and installing it. Sorry.
