Simple.The wires in your hinges are frayed or disconnected.Now its hard to fix this problem(sorry)unless you know your way around a screw driver.I would take it into your nearest gamestop or gamecrazy or any game related store or radioshack.They should be able to fix it for you.

I had that issue also.
I opened the DS, and I saw that a connector was not attached to the mainboard. I connected it, and the problem was solved.

Be careful opening the DS.

Top screen won't lock


Hi,

The most likely reason for the screen being unstable is that when the shell casing was damaged the top screens ribbon was damaged at the same time.

You can sort both these issues out but it is not a small job, you will need a few specialist tools, a new top screen, basic soldering skills, delicate handling and plenty of patience.

If you are willing to take on this task then everything you need for the job is readily avaliable from ebay.

The stuff you need are:
1x Replacement shell/ housing/ casing for DS lite.
1x Replacement top screen for DS lite.
1x Precision tri-wing screwdriver.
1x Soldering iron (ideally with 1mm tip, but not essential) and solder.
1x Tweezers.
1x Flat tool, i.e. craft knife, flat head screwdriver.
1x Precision cross head screwdriver.

If you click on my name it will take you to my profile page, once there have a look at my guides I have written, you will need "DS lite dismantle process" and "DS lite top screen replacement".

If you require further help or advice then please get back to me and I will do my best to assist you as best I can.

Regards,

The top screen on my ds lite keeps flickering lines. this gets worse the longer it's on for but it does seem to help if i play while on charge or close and re-open the ds. I'm not sure what needs replacing...


It might be worth checking the ribbon cable for the top screen is tight in the socket on the main board, this could explain why the screen gets back to normal when you close the ds then reopen. The ribbon cable for the top screen is in the hinge on the left side of the ds when open, the only way to check this is to take the back of the ds, to do this you will need a small philips screw driver and a tri-wing screw driver which you can get of ebay quite cheap. The worst possible fault is the top screen is faulty and needs to be changed, if you do a search in youtube you will find videos on how to do this, they are good and quite detailed. hope this helps.

When i turn on my DS the top screen is blank then it turns white and stays like that, i don;t know what's wrong


If your booting to a GBA game, there us a setting in the machine BIOS to tells it to use the top or bottom screen. You can access it by taking out the games and booting the unit.

If your booting a DS game, it should display on both. If not, it is possible a wire has come loose on the display (or the screen went bad).

You can try and check for the wire yourself or take it to a repair shop. If you bought it recently call Nintendo.

DS Lite, the top screen goes black when opened the whole way when the game is opened to a 90 degree angle the screen is clear and works fine.


There are a few things that could have happened, the most likely that one of you cable clips is loose, and when you open it fully, it pulls it out just enough so that the connection is lost.

Your going to need to open your DS, (the forms at www.powergamingparts.com are the best forms to find these instructions) then just disable your clip, and reinsert it, and then close the clip, and put you DS back together. Just ask if you need any additional help.

ITS AN INTERMITTENT CONTACT with the ribbon belt that connects from the main unit to the upper screen , I believe you need to take the DS for an authorized repair shop, but before doing anything , give a call to a tech support at NINTENDO , THEY would gladly help you out and inform you whats the next step , hope this helps , AJ , in case you dont have the LINK, let me give it to you : http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/ ,

DS Lite's top screen has horizontal black lines


i found a REALLY easy solution! the most likley problem is that there is dust in the GBA/DS game card slot! it corrupts the connectors (i dont want 2 explain how it gets into the system) so step one: wrap a small peice of tissue around the stylus(make sure DS is turned ON)
step two: LIGHTLY go inside the GBA/DS slot with the tissue wrapped stylus.
step three: shut down DS system and turn on again
problem solved! hope this helps.
