Question about Nintendo DS Lite

Potentially dead Nintendo DS lite LCD screen. (bottom)

I have a black Nintendo DS lite and the bottom screen has been acting funny for months. It started with red or green line grids appearing on the bottom screen and now it doesn't work at all. When i turn on my DS, the bottom screen is blank white but you can still activate items (blindly) with the touch screen. At first i figured the battery was dying but the top screen works fine. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume the LCD behind the touch screen pad is dead? Am i right? And if so, can anyone refer me to a guide (pictures or video prefered) on how to swap out the LCD? Same Problem. Blank white bottom screen with one vertical line located about 2/3 across on the right. Line goes from top to bottom. Sometimes the screen flashes, not on and off, but it just slightly changes brightness, like it's TRYING to do something. Bottom screen DOES accep input from the stylus. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hey, I can help you.


Yes, the Bottom LCD is dead. You will have to exchange it.

Below I have two links you should follow through. One to purchase a bottom LCD for a very cheap price and the other will show you how to replace the bottom LCD.


REMEMBER.. To place a plastic pad under the bottom lcd so it doesn't ground out the board. Forgetting to do this could potentially blow a fuse and you will have to replace those!!

Maybe the ribbon cable was damaged. the ribbon cable is a flat wire thing used to connect the top screen and bottom screen. you can buy a ribbon cable on ebay for a cheap price.

if that wasn't the problem, maybe the bottom lcd screen is dead. you'll need to replace that.

Single verticle black line on top screen of ds lite:(


Sounds like you have something wrong with the LCD screen, and there isn't much you can do about it except buy another top/bottom piece from NINTENDO.

Ds not lite


Replace the connector cord between two screens. You can buy new ones from DX Deal extreme! Carefully remove through hinge and attach securely.

Be careful not to break the fine wires connecting. Have to twist the connector cord in the correct way to make it go through hinge without damaging.

Good luck cos it is a fiddly job.
