Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

3 Answers

Touch screen's going black.

One morning I woke up to play my DS and when I turned it on my bottom screen had a black slash across the bottom lefthand corner. I experienced this problem once with my SP. Eventually my SP screen went entirely black. Is it because it's a LCD screen? How can I fix it?

You can replace the lcd screen and your problem will be fixed. there are many places that sell the lcd and instructions on how to replace it. Then there are very few that can fix it.

Your back light for your ds and sp may have went out, unfortunately it is impossible to fix a lcd screen with the black light going out other than buying a new screen and installing it. Sorry.

When I turn on my NDSL the touch screen is white


The bottom screen is made up of 2 parts the screen itself and the touch screen mambrane which sits on top of the screen, if the touch part is still woking then the screen is faulty and will need to be replaced.
There are some good videos on youtube that will run you through the process of changing just the screen.

My touch pad worked fine last night, but now it doesn't! Help!


well, first you should see if it needs charging. Then turn on the ds and touch the little ds on the bottom of the screen. Go to the calibrate or the thing that is on the right side of the person. Try thr test and dont stop it until its over. Try touching the screen again but if that doesnt work call nintendo which the number is in the manual or find it at www.nintendo.com. See if that works.

Top half dont work


Solution:

1. IF you have R4 card in your DS, take it out.

2. Go to Settings (Little icon on the bottom of the touch screen)

3. Select Pink button

4. Select "GBA Mode" (pink button on the right)

5. Select "Touch screen"


NOTE:

This is mainly affective for GBA games, not DS games unfortunately.
If you are really that desperate to play DS games properly, then either hope you can still claim it on warranty and/or buy a brand new DS (maybe even the new DSi).



Hope I helped

Potentially dead Nintendo DS lite LCD screen. (bottom)


Hey, I can help you.


Yes, the Bottom LCD is dead. You will have to exchange it.

Below I have two links you should follow through. One to purchase a bottom LCD for a very cheap price and the other will show you how to replace the bottom LCD.


REMEMBER.. To place a plastic pad under the bottom lcd so it doesn't ground out the board. Forgetting to do this could potentially blow a fuse and you will have to replace those!!

Touch screen doesn't light up


Your problem is with the LCD behind the touch screen. The bottom scren on your DS is actually two screens. An LCD and a touch screen on top of it. Either your cable has come loose inside the DS or the LCD is possibly bad. This can be fixed.

The other option is that the electronics feeding the LCD have gone bad in which case you might as well buy a new DS. But check the screen first.

If the DS is under a year old you can send it to Nintendo for free repair.
