Re: Is the Upper screen of the Nintendo DS repairable?

I will let you figure up the pessos but it is around $40.00 for a new screen and you can get them on e-bay that is the cheapest place I have found anyway. Just be careful taking it apart the parts are fragile.

How to repair the upper screen to a nintendo ds. the screen itself is not cracked but is inside the screen

Is the top screen White or does it have little lines across when you play? If it's either one of these, then the only thing you can do is go to Nintendo Support and have them repair it, I would NOT recommend trying to fix it yourself. Link to Nintendo Support.

Lower screen is all white, upper screen is working fine.

I had this happen to myself. It's a bad LCD. You could try smacking it gently a few times(with the DS off) to see if that re-seats anything loose inside but you're probably gonna have to call Nintendo.

Crack in DS

I have tried plenty of ways but this plastic cant be pasted easily and the hinge crack the junction again so basically you need a new hinge piece, something saddly cant be bought alone, you need to buy a whole shell.

If not under nintendo 1year warranty, the best thing you can do to kill this problem is take the DS to a videogame repair service to replace the shell before the top screen or the whole DS suffer more damage. You can also consider to buy and change the shell by yourself. The bad new is anyway you need some money to repair it.

You can use the DS carefully meanwhile the top part dont get completelly out of place.
