Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Screen stays red

When I turn on the ds lite it fades from white to a red screen. the touch screen works, because I can hear it manipulating things but the screen is always red. tried numerous things: take out battery, tried resetting, inserting games in and out.

    I should have included that it's both screens that fade to red and they do it simultaniously. The problem started when my son pulled out a game cartridge while the game was still going. And he pulled it out, he didn't push in the cartridge and then take it out. So needless to say I wasn't very happy with him and he learned the hard way the way to change games on a ds.

    The problem reminds me a bit of the 'hack' thats on youtube of people getting the same red screen when they are in picto chat with a game in and taking the game out. Thats why I don't think it is a screen problem.

    But I can't get the ds boot without the fade to red. I can hear it booting up, but both screens do the fade to red.

If you mean the bottom screen, replace it. If you mean the top screen, replace it.

    Did anyone ever come up with a solution for the white screen fading to red on BOTH screens during boot-up? I have the same exact issue with a used unit, and just wondering if there's a fix. It doesn't seem like it would be a screen issue, but not sure. Thanks!

My ds lite will turn on and you can see the screen above but the bottom screen stays white. You can touch the bottom screen and it appears to respond to some interaction. What can I do to get things...


if you feel confident enough to open up the ds check ribbon cable is tightly in the connector, the clasp that hold the cable has a littke brown flip hinge on it and is quite fragile so take care.

You will have to gentley push the screen up towards you to find the riibon cable connecter. If the cable seems fine then the screen probably needs changing, but the screen is made up 2 parts, the screen and the touch screen membrane which lies on top and held in place by a bit of adhesive.

You have to seperate them by gently prizzing them apart, if you dont feel confident doing this you can buy replacement bottem screens fully made up, but it would be a shame to do this as the touch mambrane part of the screen seems like it is working. hope this helps a bit and good luck

Faulty game console


Maybe the ribbon cable was damaged. the ribbon cable is a flat wire thing used to connect the top screen and bottom screen. you can buy a ribbon cable on ebay for a cheap price.

if that wasn't the problem, maybe the bottom lcd screen is dead. you'll need to replace that.

Nintendo ds NEED HELP


My DS touch screen is very light. If you turn look at a particular angle you can still see what is shown on the screen, but other than that, the screen looks white. I have already changed the touch pad and that was not the problem. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks

Nintendo DS Lite Touch Screen Fades


You're going to have to send it in for repair. It sounds like it's out of warranty, which is unfortunate.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white


if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie
