OK, when i turn my ds lite on it is all white and i hit it on the bake to fix it temporarily then it goes white agine i am scared if i hit it any more it will brake. pleas help! (p.s i do not want to buy...

sounds like your screen has a lose connection. theres a ribbon cable inside that connects the lcds to the mainboard inside your ds. if your comfortable you can get a tri wing screwdriver and open it up and push it back in. Otherwise you may want to send it to a professional.
heres a video of a guy taking a ds lite apart to replace the screen all together (it's more likely you just need to push your ribbon cable in tho not completely replace the screen)
~good luck either way!

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.

It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.

The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.

My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.

This should solve your issue.

If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.

Hope this helps,

I turn My nintendo DS lite on and after maybe 2 seconds the green light flashed and shuts off. Help!?


Do either of the screens flash just before the green led goes of?

If it does then the screen that doesn't flash is faulty... If you have a warranty then i'd suggest sending it in for repair if not and you fancy a go at a bit of DIY let me know and I will take you through the process of dismantling the DS lite, reconnecting the screen to see if its just come loose and if you need to I can tell you how to go about fitting a new screen.

Hope this helps,

I was changing the shell on my ds lite, and when I turn it on, it turns off almost immediately, but if I take off the internet part of the motherboard, the ds turns on but there is no image on the ds. It...

Firstly without the "internet part of the motherboard" the ds is unable to load.

When you turn the ds lite on do any of the screens flash? If they do then the screen that doesn't flash will either need to be reconnected or replaced (they are very easily damaged). That will solve your issue.

If none of the screens flash then its possible that you will need to change/replace some fuses on the motherboard.

Get back to me with your findings and I will talk you through what you will need to do.

If the bottom screen flashes when you turn the ds on but the top screen does nothing, then you need to replace the top screen or reseat the ribbon cable.

My ds will not turn on


It sounds like one of you're screens has broken. What you have discribed is generally what happens one either the top or bottom LCD screen has broken.

If it is the top screen the bottom screen will flash for 1/2 a second and the DS turns off.

If it is the bottom screen the DS should still turn on but with no reaction from the screens. (the Ds will shut down immediatley after turning on)

Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.
