Top Screen on DS only shows lines

I take it the item is a ds Phat??

Problem is the same if its a Lite just a different part.

DS Phat - you need the screen cable that runs between the bottom board and the top connsctor board.

DS Lite, the screen and cable are all in one, so you need a new top screen

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.

Replacing bottom screen on a nintendo DS

The bottom screen is not difficult but it does take some care. As noted in another post, the bottom screen is 3 pieces. The actual screen, the touch screen on top, and then a clear plastic cover.

There is a ton of videos and manuals out here that can get you started.
Two things though!! Wear examination gloves when working with the touchscreen. Any fingerprints on the screen and it will not function correctly. I have had a limited amount of success cleaning the screen after my pudgy fingers hit it.

Also, It can be difficult to get all of the screens lined up correctly. Make darn sure you look at the spacing all the way around BEFORE you pull the stack apart. If you do not get it all lined up correctly the case will not fit! (Even then it may take of couple of tries to get it right)

Good luck with it.

Non-working top screen

If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.

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?
