Sounds to me like you need a new bottom screen.

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.

My nintendo ds keeps flashing white when i turn it on then go of


The fact the bottom screen flashes and the top doesn't indicates that the top screen needs replaced! Although do not attempt this as a D.I.Y project as its more complex than some think. And the 2 speakers also need to be desoldered and then resoldered to the ribbon on the new top screen and this requires soldering skills. If you stay in the glasgow area you welcome to contact me for repairs.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

Try cleaning the game. If you look at it in the light you may find it has some scratches or something. You see my brother has that! Love Tamsin

DS Lite: Green light, touch screen flashes white and turns off problem.


i had the exact same problem, i just fixed it a minute ago by pushing the ribbon cable in farther. make sure you push on both sides of it with your fingernails until it goes all the way in then latch it down.
