My nintendo lite wont turn on-the green lite and top screen flash, but thats all

I looked this up on the internet before and found a soloution-it was to hold 2 x buttons on together (i think but maybe 3?) this worked but i cant remember which buttons? i think the ds came from china? it was a present. can you help? Best Regards Col The nintendo ds Lite does't star, while a turning on the screens appears like 1 second and after it is gone. Top screen cracked, so we installed a replacement. However, now when you hit the power switch, the green light goes on for ~1 sec and then the top screen flashes and everything turns off. According to what we read here, a top screen flash indicates a problem with the bottom screen. During installation, the touch screen connection pulled out and had to be reconnected. Could "problem with the bottom screen" include the touch screen?

Do you mean that funny little zif connection that's near the wireless card? If you connected that by forcing the cable back in you may have ruined it :-( or you may simply have a bad connection. Open it back up and CAREFULLY using a small tool lift the BACK of the plastic top of the connector - it's a ZIF that's hinged at the FRONT so the BACK lifts be very very careful it's delicate as anything. Once it's lifetd slide the cable in up to the notches (in the cable) then push the plastic zif latch back down. If you're lucky you don't need a new botton lcd, which isn't that hard though...

Ds lite- green light comes on then screen flickers for one second then turns its self off whats wrong ?


Hi there, this is usually a sign that one of the screens has become faulty.

When you switch the DS console on, make a note as to which screen is the one that flashes. If the top screen flashes just before it turns off then the bottom screen is faulty.

If the bottom screen flashes then it is the top screen that is faulty.

Whichever screen it is that is faulty they can be bought quite cheaply online from places like amazon and ebay.

To actually replace the screen does require some good technical knowledge but usually there are some very good guides available just by doing an internet search.

I hope this information helps you and thank you for using FixYa

When I turn on my DS lite, the green light and bottom screen flash briefly and it turns itself off. This is even with the charger plugged in (which indicates that it is charging).


Hi there, this is unfortunately because the top screen has become faulty. Whichever screen flashes it is the opposite screen that is faulty.

You can buy the screens quite cheaply from such places as amazon and ebay.

To replace the screen itself is a little tricky, especially as it is the top screen that is faulty.

If you do an internet search on how to replace the top screen of a ds lite you will find that there are plenty of guides out there but please read through them first to make sure that you are comfortable carrying out the repair.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

NDS lite has the power(green lite flashes), but screens wont lit


Hi,

When you switch the DS lite on you should notice that one of the screens flashes... if thats correct then the screen that doesn't flash is the one that will need replacing which, I would assume is the upper screen as judging by what you say has a damaged ribbon.

Nintendo DS Lite, Dim Green Light, Brigher Green Light then off


Hi,

If the green light reacts as you state then the chances are the fuses are fine.

Again, with the reaction of the green light being as you stated i'm going to assume you have a problem with one of your screens, tell me... when the green light comes on does one of the screens flash? If it does then we have found the answer...

The screen that doesnt flash is the one with the problem, you can try taking the DS lite apart and re-connecting the screens ribon to see if that sorts it, if it doesnt then im afraid you will have to buy a new screen. These can befound on ebay for a reasonable price.

I have written some guides on how to change your screens and how to disassemble the DS lite, these will guide youthrough the processes you need to take. These can be found by clicking on my name and then scrolling down to "tips and tricks", press the "view all" to see all of them and find what you need.

I hope this helps.

The green light flashes on my Ds Lite, but it simply wont turn on. It always shows a black screen. Please help.


One of your screens have either come loose at their connection or the screen is faulty which means a new screen.
Just hope its the bottom one as the top screen requires some patience to replace.

My nintendo lite wont turn on-the green lite is on but thats all-


Which LCD is blinking?

If your top screen is blinking before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the bottom screen.

If the bottom screen blinks before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the top screen.


Can you confirm?

That's an odd way to fix a Wireless WIFI board problem. That's what happens when the green light comes on, but you have no video.
