SOURCE: Display screen on DS Lite

I had this same problem on my Lite earlier this year.  It was still under warranty, so I sent it in to Nintendo repair, who replaced the hinge assembly.  Based on the symptom and the repair, I suspect it's caused by a loose/damaged ribbon cable between the upper screen and the rest of the Lite.

I'd be leery of trying to fix it yourself (I've worked on similar problems in laptops), but if your Lite is out of warranty, you might try one of the third-party repair services.  Depending on whether the ribbon cable is damaged or just loose, they may not even need any replacement parts.

SOURCE: my ds lite won't turn on both fuses are good

Hi,

It's all to do with the top screen... What happens is that when you turn the DS lite on it performs a quick check on the screens to make sure they are connected properly, if one or both are not connected properly then the unit will shut down.
The flashing of the screen shows you that that particular screen is fine whereas the one that does nothing is not connected properly, either through a loose connection or faulty screen/ ribbon.

Your best bet is to buy a new top screen (I usually get mine from ebay for around £10-£12) and fit it. That should sort out your issue.

Any further problems or questions feel free to message me via my profile page.

Regards,

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


Hi,

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.

My nephews ds lite has been water damaged for years and i don't know if i can fix it.


Well try taking it apart and letting it dry, and you can buy replacement DS parts, such as top/bottom screens, from Amazon. however, to take it apart, you're going to need a triwing screwdriver, also available on Amazon.com.

Majority of bottom screen DS Lite not working......


There is a guy on youtube that has great instruction on taking it apart. REMEMBER. the bottom screen has two parts. The lighted part and the pressure part. Know which you need before purchasing. I had to do it three times and then a clip inside finally broke. Also, e-bay has those screens for $2 or so with $4 in shipping. Good luck.

None responsive DS lite screen


Hi,
It sounds like you need a replacement touch screen. They are reasonably simple to replace if you're confident with taking it apart, otherwise you'll need to pay for a repair. You can buy touchscreen on ebay fairly cheaply.

Broken bottom screen


Some of the screws are hidden.
-2 under rubber feet (bottom of console) - just prise the feet off - they just stick back on when refitting.
-1 screw (when the console is upside down) is in the middle of the cartride entry point - small black tri-wing screw.

Failing that check out YouTube - there are lots of videos showing how to take the case apart and put it back together again.

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.
