When did it first happen? You shoud try with a friend's battery and charger to see if you get anything different. If you already tryied that and tried taking the battery out and back in then pretty much there is nothing else to do, than get in contact with Nintendo to maybe consider a warranty exchage, or for repairs if warranty is expired.

Tip

When your screens blink.. What to do!


A lot of people have had the dreadful blinking of the screens. Whether it's only 1 screen blinking (upper or lower) , or both screens blinking..

I have a tip to help you diagnose the problem so you don't have to waste time trying to find out what's wrong with it, or waste money.


1.) IF YOUR UPPER LCD BLINKS
  • There is something wrong with your lower LCD and/or the connector on the board where the lower lcd connects to.
POTENTIAL SOLUTION
  • Open up your Nintendo DS lite system and clean the board with rubbing alcohol. Be sure to dry the board from excess liquid before re-assembling it. Use a FIRM brush. An regular toothbrush would not work as the bristles are not firm enough.

2.) IF YOUR LOWER LCD BLINKS
  • There is something wrong with your upper LCD and/or the connector on the board where the upper lcd connects to.

  • Follow the Potential Solution to #1

3.) IF BOTH SCREENS BLINK
  • 99.9% of the time, if both screens blink, your light is red. Which indicates your battery is low. Change the battery. If your system isn't charing your batteries correctly and/or you're losing battery power unusually quick, replace the charger.

  • If that does not work, send your system in for repair, as the charging port needs to be cleaned.

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

Lower ds screen lights up and touch works but no picture?


Hello!

There are 2 things that may need to be done.

1.) Replace the lower LCD screen
2.) Replace the motherboard

Sometimes the motherboard causes problems with either the Upper or Lower LCD.

But, I would change the lower first.

There are websites on the internet that will show you how to do this.

Or , you could send it in for repair.

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

Green Light Flashes


Possible you have a defective LCD screen. Could be the upper or the lower. Personally i think the upper (broken LCD Flatcable)

Blank Upper and Lower Screens


Try plugging it into the charger and turning it on. If it still doesn't work, you probably broke the internatl port for the charger which is why it's turning on then back off right away because it's not able to charge anymore. If you stil have your warrenty, I would try to take it back.
