DS (Original 2005) - Corrupt Software

When I turn on the DS the top screen shows Nintendo and chimes like normal then goes blank white while the bottom screen stays blank white the whole time. The interesting part is if I mash the buttons in just the right way as its starting up it will load and be able to play DS games without going through the DS menu. The games play without issue and no corrupt data. Before this happened I tried taking the battery out as a test run to get a replacement. My feeling is corrupt software as all the hardware seems to work. Advice and a possible solution would be appreciated

SOURCE: My Nintendo DS top screen is blank white and is not working

It's a poor connection to your top screen that's your problem, the issue is either that the conection is loose that holds the top screen ribbon cable to the board or that the ribbon cable to the top screen is damaged and will require replacing

SOURCE: Nintendo ds N5 card stuck on loading screen

For the N5 you need to fully format the 2gb card, don't be tempted to do a quick format because it won't work.
You are right to use version 1.28 but copy each file across individually in the order they are listed when you have downloaded them. Then you can create your 3 folders assuming you want them
Films
MP3
Games
I have spend a few months on and off arguing with these cards but doing as above should solve your problem.

SOURCE: nintendo dsi error everywhere

Contact Nintendo for this problem,
it looks like the firmware went corrupted,
maybe some one has used a bad flash
adapter to play backuped games.

Don't tell them the part of maybe some one
used a bad flash adapter, becouse they then won't help you anymore or will cost you alot
of mony to get it fixed.

Also try to reset the dsi to the standard settings, this can wipe everything on the dsi,
making backups is recomended.
A factory reset on the DSi can be performed by holding down every button minus those of the d-pad and turning the system on.

My Nintendo DS top screen is completely blank


you need a new case and top LCD as the cable running through the hinge is fragile and has obviously been broken. Ebay should provide you with spares required and youtube for video's on how to do the job

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps
