Re: blank screen when booting up

Has anyone tried to instal a modchip? This is the most common cause of a black screen problem, If not then its possibly a blown fuse on the motherboard, Will require a reliable repairer to inspect and assess, Its not a job for an amatuer unfortunately as there could be more than one cause.

When i turn on my DS the top screen is blank then it turns white and stays like that, i don;t know what's wrong

If your booting to a GBA game, there us a setting in the machine BIOS to tells it to use the top or bottom screen. You can access it by taking out the games and booting the unit.

If your booting a DS game, it should display on both. If not, it is possible a wire has come loose on the display (or the screen went bad).

You can try and check for the wire yourself or take it to a repair shop. If you bought it recently call Nintendo.

Two red quadrants light up on the left and screen goes blank.

there are two posibilitys to your problem it could be either there is something unpluged in your 360 or your could have a virus you should take your 360 apart and check it if it is still under warrenty through microsoft you should send it in to them and let them fix it but if it is out of warrenty then you should get the tools at your nerest radio shack and take it apart and check it out and let me know what happens

Is my Nintendo DS Dead?

You are going to have to send it so that they can reset your system. Also, it could be that it is working but there is a short to your LCD screen. look around at some companies that fix gameing equipment. I went to and they fixed my sons DS. he had dropped it and the top screen would not come out. they had to change out the LCD screen.
