Dropped ds Broken hinge not working

My son dropped his ds Lite and the right hand hige came off.  Now when you turn on the ds the power on light comes on the touch screen flickers and then it dies . there si no other sign of life in it except when you plug in the charger it appears to be charging.

any idea what the problem might be and how costly it would be to repair ?

It's the ribbon cable for the top screen it's came loose.  They are very sensitive.  I wouldn't suggest playing it with a broken hinge, because the cable will get damaged in a few days and you will have to pay for a new screen(as the cable is part of the screen.)  There are people that can fix it for relatively cheaply.

My sons ds lite will not turn on the green light comes on and a white light flickers on bottom screen and thats all, I changed the battery and still no luck. Help! thanks


it's likely that the top screen ribbon cable has either become damaged or loose, the entire top screen will probably need replacing (along with the casing if the hinge is broken).. if you are not confident with technical or fiddley things I wouldnt recommend attempting it yourself.

Green screen


There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.
