DS lite screen

My bottom screen on the DSlite displays everything inverted for some reason. The top screen display is perfect and the touchscreen is responsive as usual. Is there any way to fix this?

Hahahahaha that is how it works but if you go to the little DS at the bottom of the touch screen and tap it there will be a fixer manual use it and when you are done the system will shut off and just turn it on again and also the touch screen is the most important thing on your ds so keep it scratchless and clean! On some games the top screen is an important thing and somtimes it doesnt show anything

I replaced the top lcd screen on my son's Nitendo DS lite and now when I turn it on the bottom screen flashes and shuts off. What is wrong with it?


Hello!

The bottom screen flashes because something is still wrong with the upper lcd

Make sure you didnt put a rip in the upper lcd. The smallest rip will mess it up.

Also, make sure the cable is in completely.. If its off the slightest cm , it'll cause the lower lcd to blink which causes the DSlite to not work

When a game is inserted into my DS lite it boot straight into the game... is there a reason why this is happening?


Hello!

1.) Cut your DSLite on (WITHOUT THE GAME)
2.) Go to settings at the bottom.
3.) Click on the first option, and you'll be taken to a screen where you can select whether to have it load games on startup, or go to the home screen


Hope this helps!

i think you should either get a new ds or tap the touch screen hard. if tapping the touch sreen harder does not work then that means it is time for a new ds.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

No connection


If the bottom screen was taken out then there would be a loosen or unplugged conductor, maybe only the touchscreen wire is out, you can open the system and plug it back to the jack. If the wire is broken then you need a new touchscreen (not the whole display, just the touch pad, like $9.99 + s&h).

Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS: How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

Good Luck...
