Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

Bottom Screen I dropped my Ds and now there is a ripple in the screen that puts pressure on the left side I can pry it up with my finger nail by the frame and it works for a while but then pops back. Therefore I think I should replce the bottom screen but can't seem to find detailed instructions on the alone. ThanksMuriel

Re: Bottom Screen

Try to get hold of a tri pronged screwdriver to open up the back of your ds (you can get them from "". Once you have opened it it should be easy to sort out as you can take the whole screen apart. It's quite easy once you've got the screwdriver :-)

My DSI opens up but does not responds on the touch screen, left and right button and x / y button. but the camera can take pictures

One time when my dinosoar of a ds was not a dino, I left it plugged in to the wall for a few days. When I went to unplug it and play a game that required the touch screen, it seemed to not know i was touching it. That night I went and bought mario bros. partners in time and played that game (which used buttons and not the screen) until my ds died and I recharged it only for a day and the touch screen worked again.

Another time I went to someones house with 2 little kids and let them play my game. They lost my pen ( and it was a hassel finding a pen small enough to fit in the slot) and started using their fingers. We ate some super buttery popcorn and kept touching the screen with our fingers. The next day the touch screen did not work and my step dad had to use windex 3 times daily for 2 days before it would work.

Make sure you try what I tried a few times. Pretty much any problem you have with the touch screen not responding can be fixed by letting your batteries run out of juice and recharging in a maximum time of 1 day. If this fails you, make sure you are using the bottom screen. You dont know how many people I have met that kept replacing their ds and ended up finding out they were using the wrong screen. Finally, replace the screen, and buttons or just replce the ds or dsi.

Hoth battle complete saga ds

finally done it!!!. When the cable attaches to the AT-AT it should drop the screen down to the bottom screen then take your stilus or use your finger and draw circles in the direction the ship is going around the AT-AT. good luck

Nintendo ds damaged ribbon cable

You can't buy a ribbon for the bottom screen. (You can buy the ribbon that connects the motherboard to the daughter board which connects the top screen.). A new screen is the answer but be very careful when taking off the touch screen. Gently pry the two screens apart or else you will need a new touch screen. Also make a note of how the touch screen is attached to the LCD screen, as the touch screen is not the same size as the LCD screen. How have you damaged the ribbon? Could it be that it may not be pushed tight and straight into the connector? BTW the top and bottom LCD screens are the same. Some unscrupulous dealers have been charging differing amounts for 'Top' or 'Bottom' screens!

Bottom screen

Sounds like the screen is broken. It may be fixable, but you're likely better off buying a new DS.
