    It is not new or under warranty. It does not appear to be damaged other than the battery cover missing. The screens do not appear to be scratched or damaged in any way.

Majority of bottom screen DS Lite not working......


There is a guy on youtube that has great instruction on taking it apart. REMEMBER. the bottom screen has two parts. The lighted part and the pressure part. Know which you need before purchasing. I had to do it three times and then a clip inside finally broke. Also, e-bay has those screens for $2 or so with $4 in shipping. Good luck.

Ds lite


sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

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.

RE:nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?solution


Wotterz.

This is a problem with the cpu on the systemboard. I've seen this problem many times if the DS Lite is felt to the ground. The contacts of the cpu are very fragile. The DS Lite turns on, green led available, even charche is working bot nothing else. Repair of this problem is almost impossible. The only thing you can do is send it to Nintendo.

You can test if it is the cpu by removing the bottom of the DS Lite and put the battery on te contacts.
Press firmly on slot 1 (the aluminium cover) and turn the DS Lite on. If you got a picture on the screens then you know it for sure. The cpu is located under slot 1 and by pressing on de top of the slot you are pressing possible loose contacts back on de systemboard.

If it is not working then the cpu is to musch damaged.

Let us know what you've found with this solution.

Bottom screen scrambled on nintendo ds lite


This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.

Open the device following this info:
How to dismantle an Original Nintendo DS.

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

The bottom screens have 2 wrap wires, one big and visible, that is the screen cable, the other is small and not so obvious and this one is for the touch screen and you dont want to get it broken.

The cable connectors release the cable by lifting ot pulling the brown or black lock and be sure to remember how it was connected so you can know the right position of the cable when connected right not having any problem with loosen cables before you finish.

Good Luck...
