SOURCE: top screen of ds lite has lines

Get a tri winged screwdriver (can be bought from www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/nintendo-wing-screwdriver/p-1169.html) take the rubber pads off and undo your DS. Check the screen connections attatched to the speaker circuit board and the connections on the main circuit board. If the cable looks to have a slight crack in it or looks to be excessively bent the buy a new connector. (you can buy them from www.consoleparts4u.co.uk/nintendo-ds-screen-connecting-ribbon-cable-107-p.asp. Hope this helps :-)

SOURCE: red ds lite screen

When the screen has a red hue there are two possibilities:
The screen is broken or the connector has moved.
The "water" is in fact the liquid crystal diplay that is broken.
Replacing the screen will cost about € 20

Ds lite top screen showing colours and lines but thats all can u help?


If you Feel confident enough to open up the ds check the top screen ribbon cable is as tight as possible, its at the top end of the board near the hinge.

The ribbon cable could be faulty do to rubbing on the inside of the hinge, check if the image on the screen changes when you flip the lid towards you and back, if it does chances are the screen will need to be reworked or changed. hope this helps.

My nintendo ds top screen's color is off. It is


Unfortunately this is coming to be known as the "Green Screen of Death"... It is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This usually occurs if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS's screens. Your Nintendo DS system will need to be repaired.

You can give Nintendo a call at 1-800-255-3700 or contact them via their website:

Hope this helps!

My ds lite images on the top screen flickering.


Open up the DS and then unseat and reseat the ribbon cable that goes to the screen.

Once you do that, turn on the DS and if the screen is still flickering then the screen will need to be replaced.

Here is a tutorial on how to open up the DS and what the ribbon cable looks like:

DS Lite Top screen Froze image


Sounds like your screen may have come loose, OR its time for a new one. Either: A) Send it in for repair. (Big N may charge up to 80$ if its not within warranty)
B) Buy parts from a place like DealExtreme (http://snipurl.com/hf0li) or some place similar, but that means opening it and you'd need a Trigram/Tri-wing screwdriver to open it as well. Not good for the inexperienced, though as there's a good chance of bending the paper thin screen wires. (but I guess the experience of knowing you can do it yourself(~25$), as well as for less is better than having to shell out ~80$ for Big N to fix it.)
C) New DSL?

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

White top screen


The same thing happened to me, If you bust the part where the light for the power and the light for the charging indicator, slide the top screen to the right and you should see a bundle of cords, one of these must be disconnected.

DS lite console- after fitting new top screen?


Hmmm,sound like you may have not connected the screen properly OR more seriously you could have blown a fuse on the Motherboard.I recently bought a DS from E-bay with this problem.Its a matter of soldering across the fuse to bridge the gap.Its a VERY VERY small fuse so it will take a steady hand.Have a look on Google for DS lite blown fuse and you should get a few images showing you wich fuse to BRIDGE.Its usually the F2 fuse,but after I had done this the DS would work but it would not charge.After a bit of fiddling I found that the F1 fuse had also gone and apparently this is for the Charging procedure.You may be able to get replacement fuse for it but I couldnt find them anywhere.

You mean the actual physical screen has come loose and is moving to the left, or the image on the screen?

Non-working top screen


If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.
