I have a solution! I am a mechanical engineering student at Purdue. My little brother spilled water on his DS lite and the screens had little weird warbly spots on it, but it still worked. He asked me if I could fix it.
I bought replacement screens for it and went to work tearing it apart. Once I got the screens replaced, I put it back together and tried it. It worked perfectly, but then something happened and it stopped altogether. After that, when I would slide the power switch on, the light blinked on and the bottom screen turned on. Then, the unit quickly powered-off and that was the end of it.
After a lot of research I found what the problem was. It was discovered that a lot of DSs were "Bricking," or stopped working, same problems as you guys have. You need to reroute some sections of the motherboard to bypass defunct safety mechanisms. If you would like more information, please email me at charlyoak@msn.com. As each case can vary. I have repaired a large number of DSs and DS lites. Chances are, I can help you too!

If the green light comes on for only about 1 - 2 seconds then:

This is common occurrence when the cable to the top or bottom screen has been damaged. Usually happens with a bad repair attempt. It could be anywhere along the cable or at the point were it plugs in to the circuit board. To narrow the trouble down you need good screens and good DS's to verify working components and defective components.

    if you don't get anything it's probably just the power to the screen has got disconnected. there's nothing you can do just send it in for repair.

My daughters Ds Lites top screen has red lines going through it horizontally, that just started this morning. I wonder if it could be a pixel thing. Any ideas?


Hi,
Do you know if the Ds lite has been dropped? It sounds to me that the screens connectior has been dislodged or is receiving too much power.

My best advice is to either send it to nintendo if its under warranty, or if your brave enough take it apart, dissconnect the top screen and then reconnect it. If that doesn't work then chances are you will need to buy a new screen.

If you want more help/advice feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you.

Regards,

DS 2 Peices


Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.
