The bottom screen of the DS Lite is made up of 3 parts. The LCD Screen which provides the pixel images you see. The Touch Screen which basically is a piece of plastic that sits on top of the LCD portion picking up the touches from your stylus. And a protective shield layer, to protect from scratches. They are all glued together so unless you are looking, you would just think they were one screen.

If its just scratched up, you really only would need to replace the protective cover, because the Touch Screen and LCD Screen should be unscathed beneath it. However, if for some reason, you don't have that protective cover, or you just want to replace the screen anyway, you have options. You can buy the Touch Screen alone (attaching it onto the already owned LCD screen), or with a new LCD screen attached. As far as the protective layer, I haven't done enough research to know if you can buy them or not, but they do sell plenty of different kinds of screen covers that you can just stick on, which I am sure would be a fine substitute. My price estimate for the Touch and LCD Screens together would be anywhere from $5 to $20.

If you decide to replace the entire screen, I urge you to know exactly what you are getting into. Follow guides, know the parts, and have the tools you need. When opening up a device like this a lot can go wrong that you were not counting on, so take care.
When I fixed my own DS Lite, I found that it was very helpful to watch demonstration videos ahead of time, so I knew the steps, and when actually working on it, making sure I had guide available.

Here are some videos and guides you can look at to make sure you know what the project entails, as well as how to go about it:

There are probably better guides out there so do some research on your own as well.
I hope that helps.

Suddenly my screen turned red and green with vertical lines all over.


Sorry but there is no easy way to find out except by parts swapping.
It could be the Screen, the connecting cable, or the graphics card (which on most laptops is actually part of the motherboard so not separately replaceable). If you can connect it to an external monitor or TV screen then that might eliminate the motherboard.

Hi the outside screen of my Sony ericsson has been cracked because someone stepped on my bag. I have found information on the net about replacing the lcd screen, but nothing about the outside screen. Does...


Hi avisenis yes you can replace the screen the only problem with the lcd screens is that they tend to led to other problems. so if you have insurance you may want to do it thur the insurance . replacing the outside screen is a simple process.The lcd screen is working fine it the outside screen that is cracked. As long as it isn't a touch screen you can use the phone. A lot of manufactures don't just replace the screens the for free the chargea fee. So your best bet is to get the manufacture to replace it but it may take two weeks.hope this help

Sony hc-32 touch screen won't work


When touch switches become nonworking then mostly its cause of connecting flexible ribbon wires between LCD board and camcorder main board that got cracked so touch buttons signal does not go to camcorder system control. Need to replace that flexible wire by qualified camera tech.

Very rare cases I found touch buttons layer that is pasted and part of LCD becomes defective, do you see hard or deep scratch on LCD surface? if yes, then LCD screen will be replaced because touch button array is damaged.
Thanks.

Nintendo DS behaving erratically-Screen malfunction????


Normally replacing the touch screen will fix these types of problems. Please note that there are two screens on the bottom and not just one. You have the touch screen and under that you have an LCD screen just like the LCD on the top. You will have to remove the touch screen from the LCD as it has double sided foam tape holding them together. Also, the small clip that holds the ribbon cable to the board is easily broken, so be careful with it. If you break it you will not be able to get the ribbon cable to stay in and the touch screen will no longer work and your DS will likely not stay on.

Touchscreen doesnt respond


Hi Your touch screen is part of your LCD and it was connected together thru a small thin cable and it is fragile. When this cable is bad or lost contact , your touch screen is disabled. Only way is to open the case and replace. The method to replace it was tricky. If you make a mistake, you can damage your LCD or scratch it. Please visit these sites for some information: 1) http://www.pocketpcman.com/index.html 2) http://stores.ebay.com/ElecRealm (Store sell Touch Screen) 3) http://www.pdaparts.com/ I hope these information will help you to find the solution for your MDA. Actually, I am repaired all phones and PDA too. If yo need for my help, you can email me at joe_dao2003@yahoo.com. I am writing a lot instruction of how to repair or replace the housing and LCD/touchscreen or can be called digitizer. Good Luck. Regards, Joseph
