Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I've just replaced the bottom screen, and didn't notice the fault at first... the touch screen works if you tap it lightly... but if you give it a medium tap with your finger it powers off, and I can use the a button etc fine. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be?
Im guessing that your replacement screen is metal backed (the original had a poly-foam backing for a reason) ,,,, when you tap lightly it works, when you press hard your pressing the metal back of the screen onto the mini-board behind it and shorting it out
If you keep doing this you will damage the mini-board, take it back out and cover the metal back with sellotape or masking tape making sure to cover the whole metal back, (dont go up the sides or its impossible to get back into the cover).
Re-assemble as before and if it isnt too late for this you will have a working DS again.
Hope this isnt too late
