Your cable is destroyed. It will have to be repaired. Look online for VIDEOS on how to replace the top lcd. It requires rolling of the top lcd to fit into a small hole and I've torn a number of those my first time. Good thing it wasn't my money I was spending ;)


Look on Amazon and you can get top lcds for under $20.00!

Any more questions, good luck

If you want to buy a Nintendo screwdriver and work patiently, this is an easy fix.
One of your ribbon cables is being pulled out or is not connecting when you open your DS.
If you go to www.powergamingparts.com you can find manuals to assist you in opening the DS and where to locate the "clips" that you will need to tighten.
If you need any further assistance contact me.

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.

DSI lite top screen keeps going black


The top screen is worked by a strap thru the hinge, it looks like you may have damaged it, if you look on the internet you can but a replacment screen with the strap, you can also get instruction on how to do it and what tools you will need, if you dont think you can do it, their are places you can get it fixed, just look on the internet.

Nintendo ds lite,green light on but not the screens


I had the Same problem on my wifes DS.  First problem was that it kept swithing itself off, so sent it to Nintendo for repair.  Within a week it was broken again.

This time the green light was coming on, but no sound and no sign of life in the screens.

Well, I'd already had to pay nintendo for the first fix (different region, no warranty, apparrently).  So I thought seeing as it's out of warranty anyway, why not open it up and have a look.

To open it you need specailist tools, I don't recommend it if you've never done anything like it before.

Anyways, the bios chip was no longer connected to the main PCB.  I simply plugged it back in and added some slips of post it note to stop it coming off again.

You can see in the picture, the chip easily plugs back onto that white clip on the board.

Once it was back on. the DS has been working fine.

DS Lite has red lines in top screen?


It could also be running fluid from the screen's gel padding. I doubt that, though... It's best to buy or order a replacement screen. It's actually not too expensive and is not too hard to DIY. The problem with that, is it's really easy to accidentally break something while opening up a DS, especially the DS lites. Another problem is, you need a triwing screwdriver to open up the DS, which can only be found online. So, if you don't want to buy anthing online, you should just ask gamestop or something to repair it for you. It'll come at a price though...
