My NDS just shuts down randomly in the midst of playing, usually with the green light giving a few blinks. No flashing screens though, and it's definitely charged. What could be wrong?

Is it still under warranty? Call Nintendo and have them repair it for you. I had the same exact issue, Nintendo solved my problem in less than a week.

Horizontal lines and blur on touch screen!

The problem is quite simple, ur NDS is getting old. My friend's NDS has the same problenm. You cant do anything, only thing u can do is to replace ur Touchscreen. There are some chinese websites which sell hose for about 15$. May u find hope there.

My douther drop the DS and now the screen is multi color, how can i change the DS??

Most probably the multi color screen means te screen is broken. Both screens (top and bottom ) can be replaced, it takes a special tri-wing screw driver to open the DS, price of the screen to replace +/- € 20.

Broken nds ribbon cable

Yes, this can be fixed. You will need to replace the top LCD screen of the NDS, as the cable attaches directly to it. The speakers will need to be soldered to the new top LCD screen, as the top replacement screens usually do not come with speakers attached to it.

My NDS top screen's picture is on the bottom screen

You most likely put it in wrong. Take it off and try again, if it still doesn't work something has to be wrong with the screen you bought.

NDSL top LCD screen ebay quality?


There are different quality screens arround, but the described problem has nothing to do with the quality of the screen and it looks like the resolution of the screen is not ok. The problem appears sometimes if the flatcable is put in to the connector and bend to much due to pressig it in this connector. I've seen that problem here sometimes. The screen is send to the customer in good order but is become defective due to incorrect manuals, missing warnings and customers that don't know what they are doing.

Try to contact te seller and ask him to replace the screen. Hopefully he wil do that.

NDS Lite will not turn on

I hear about the ribbon cable not being inserted wel.
Lots of people had it put in place, looking ok but no action from the ds. I suggest to reinsert the ribon cables, i heard its quite tricky with the ds...

Its possible though sometimes it is expensive so dont worth the work.

-Top screen broken: you can buy a replacement and carefully do the work by yourself with the help of a guide (youtube have many) and some tools (3 winding screwdriver is the less common though not much). The foil data ribbon can be bought separatelly for the original NDS though the new NDS lite have it soldered and very difficult to work.

-Broken plastics: a broken hinge means you need to buy a replacement shell. Anyway buy a complete shell from a DS modding shop or take parts from a non broken plastics DS (water damaged one may be good) in a place like ebay. You would be lucky if you find a non broken screens and good plastics DS for parts.

At the end you may be over your repair budget and not only that, you would be very near to buy a new unit with this money. Each one make its own choice.

Good Luck...
