Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

Nintendo DS Top Screen color is faint.

I recently replaced the top a screen on my Nintendo DS that was cracked. I replaced the screen with a screen I purchased online. I was told the screen was new, and other then a few marks no the front it appeared to be fine. I replaced the screen without too much difficulty. The only trouble I had was reattaching the small ribbon, that took a few tries but I was able to get the screen installed and the unit back together. The Unit seemed to function find; the only thing is the colors are very faint and light. I do have a second DS for comparing. Any help with this problem would be appreciated. Thank You Sglake

It's very possible that you didn't remove the protective film that the top screens almost always come packaged with. If that's not the case it might just be a loose connection, but that's doubtful, or a lesser quality screen.

Lower screen of Nintendo DS Lite unusable due to colored lines


Hi,
The lower Screen usually takes all the force from the stylus, which eventually damages the actual screen itself.
Your best option, is to obtain a new lower screen. easier to replace than tthe top-screen.

Nintendo ds lighing probs


Mommyturtle, i suggest that you send it in. This will ensure that you get your DS back without loss on your part. But, if you would like instructions on how to fix your unit (This will void any warranties on your unit), please email me at charlyoak@msn.com and I will step you through it.

Top screen, it may be in wiring


The ribbon cable which connects the top screen to the base of your ds is probably cracked or has a split in it. With an original ds you can just replace the cable but on a ds lite you have to replace the whole of the top screen if the cable is broken. If you are feeling adventurous and don't mind voiding your warranty then you can buy a screwdriver from http://www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/nintendo-wing-screwdriver/p-1169.html and then you can buy a top screen from http://www.consoleparts4u.co.uk/nintendo-ds-lite-top-lcd-64-p.asp. All I can suggest is that you're carefull. Hope this helps.

Top screen cracked


Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

And after opening it you can do your work replacing the top screen. Just be careful with the flexible cables, the new screen and other sensitive electronic parts on your device and you will be on your way.

Good Luck...

DONT ATTEMPT TO REPLACE THE TOP SCREEN ON THE DS LITE. It is easy to replace it on the original ds, But the ds lite requires you to re-soilder the 4 speaker cables into the top screen's video ribbon cable.
