My ds can't calibrate the touch screen

Touch screen might need to be replaced OR the ribbon cable might have gotten loose/ the little black connector for the ribbon cable of the touch screen (not bottom lcd screen) might have gotten loose. I wouldn't recommend opening your DS up. I did that and I broke several things trying to replace my casing. Just try to send it in to a repair service, most of them do it for around 15~20 dollars.

Ds shell

you are best watching a dismatling video on youtube, here is a good on but sound is foreign:

A few tips:

Take care with those speakers, the connectors are very sensitive and the wires can easily break.

Take care with the screen ribbon cables and connectors on the board, the two big ribbons have connector that lift up the little ones slide outwards.

the hinge cover has a little screw near the ribbon cable dont forgot to take that off so you can extract the ribbon through the case slot and don't forgot to replace that on your new case before putting it all back together.

on the top screen the ribbon cable may be covered by a bit of sticky foam, just peal that away carefully to access the ribbon.

Watch you dont loose any buttons by tipping the case when dismantling.

In general just take care and dont attempt to turn it on whilst in bits, you could short the screen on the board and blow a fuse.

Good luck...

NDS Lite will not turn on

I hear about the ribbon cable not being inserted wel.
Lots of people had it put in place, looking ok but no action from the ds. I suggest to reinsert the ribon cables, i heard its quite tricky with the ds...

Nintendo ds

There is a little (usually black) strip that holds the ribbon cable in the connector. This strip is hinged and needs to be "folded" open (like a book) from the front of the connector (where the ribbon is inserted) towards the back. Then the ribbon will be free. When re-assembling, you need to fold this strip back. Make sure you insert the ribbon all the way (make note of the depth before you start).
You must have something thin enough to get under the strip to fold it open. BE CAREFUL or it will break.

DS Lite: Green light, touch screen flashes white and turns off problem.

i had the exact same problem, i just fixed it a minute ago by pushing the ribbon cable in farther. make sure you push on both sides of it with your fingernails until it goes all the way in then latch it down.

Replacing broken nintendo ds screen

there is a little black bar across copper colored connection wires leading into the tan connection box...lift it up ever so lightly by placing fingernail underneath... see
warning... I have been replacing cover this evening for 3 hours only to find the right hinge piece that inserts into the lighted power tab doesn't rotate.... IE this was what caused the hinge to break in the first place and this torque/force problem causes the left hinge to break which is posted all over the internet and seems nintendo would have replaced all that for free anyway....I was searching this issue when I found your post SSLong hth

Nintendo ds damaged ribbon cable

You can't buy a ribbon for the bottom screen. (You can buy the ribbon that connects the motherboard to the daughter board which connects the top screen.). A new screen is the answer but be very careful when taking off the touch screen. Gently pry the two screens apart or else you will need a new touch screen. Also make a note of how the touch screen is attached to the LCD screen, as the touch screen is not the same size as the LCD screen. How have you damaged the ribbon? Could it be that it may not be pushed tight and straight into the connector? BTW the top and bottom LCD screens are the same. Some unscrupulous dealers have been charging differing amounts for 'Top' or 'Bottom' screens!

Replacement of all covers.

to remove the top screen the back cover actually slides off after removing all the screws from the front, once thats off you can see the ribbon cable coming through the hinge, what you need to do is coil the ribbon cable up into a tight little roll and push it through the hinge it's easier if you pull the two little cables out first. hope this helps
