Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Basically, it looks like the red subpixels are being turned on whether or not the color is supposed to contain red. This happens over most/all of the display, but it's frequently patchy at the bottom. It used to be that fiddling with the hinge could restore the display, but that no longer works.
To my inexpert eye, it looks like a damaged or loose ribbon cable, but I don't know how hard that would be to fix. The DS looks fairly difficult to disassemble and if I'm more likely to make things worse than better, I'd rather just keep this one as a "backup" and get a new one. OTOH, I'd hate to spend the money to replace it just because I was afraid to get my hands dirty.
I am having a similar problem with my DS, and it started happening not too long after I got it. Usually, messing with the hinge would fix it... but now it seems like the backlight on the topscreen may not even be coming on, although I can still see outlines of some things and a redish tinge.
