My DSI has a crack on the top screen and my warrenty expierd what shoud i do

If the crack makes the DSi unusable then you may be able to find a replacement top screen online.

Since your warranty has expired, this might be your best option if it has become unusable. Screens will be around $20 which is much less expensive than an entirely new console.

This video offers some tips on replacing the top screen of a DSi and a place to buy a top screen:

Nintendo ds lite one of the hinges is broken and cracked just along a bit. It happened yesterday thought it would be fine but every time I close it it turns off. It was never dropped so I don't know how it...


It could be shutting off for a number of reasons...

The most likely is that when it received the damage to the hinge it has also damaged the top screens ribbon and so when it is closed the ribbon loses its connection and this shuts it down.

If you wnted to check the ribbon you can dismantle the DS (unless you have a warranty in which case just send it off for repair) and check the ribbon for any damage.

Here is a dismantling guide i have written to help you take it apart... When you free up te top screens ribbon inspect it carefully, ideally with a magnifying glass to be thorough... if there is any damage to the ribbon then your best bet is to replace the screen (a new one can be bought from ebay for a very reasonable price). and fit it to resolve the issue.

Whenever I close my DS without turning it off,it doesn't go to sleep, the screen flickers and the sound gets all choppy. when I reopen it,it's just fine. also, the part that holds the top screen up is...

The problem will stem from the cracked right hand hinge and the ribbon and wire that connects to the top screen may have some damage that will be causing the other issue's. The console will require a complete new housing or you may be able to pick up a second hand part from console repair shop, they may have a top section spare that will save on a full housing repair. That will solve the hinge, but a top screen may be also required!!

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!!

Top screen, it may be in wiring

The ribbon cable which connects the top screen to the base of your ds is probably cracked or has a split in it. With an original ds you can just replace the cable but on a ds lite you have to replace the whole of the top screen if the cable is broken. If you are feeling adventurous and don't mind voiding your warranty then you can buy a screwdriver from and then you can buy a top screen from All I can suggest is that you're carefull. Hope this helps.
