Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Ds top screen not working and you can't see a thing, its all just white and blank!!!

My top screen on the Nintendo ds console does not work as it is supposed to. I don't know why but as soon as I turn it on, the top screen goes blank and you can't see a thing on the top screen. It's all white and I don't know why, maybe the wires are loose or something but I just can't fix it. I've tried everything to fix the white blank top screen but it just doesn't work. I don't want to buy a new ds console, so I was hoping you guys might have an answer. PLEASE HELP!!!

    The DS battery is fully charged and the same video cartiage is being used. In the beginning we had the same problem, now both screens are blank and black. No sound, nothing. We inserted what we knew to be a good battery into the unit, thinking the battery might be bad. Still, nothing.

You can simply remove the Li-ion battery for a short while - it doesn't retain info when batteries removed.

Hi my top screen on ds is blank

Your screen may be blank due to many problems. One could be that your game itself is not working correctly. Another could be that your DS is beginning to malfunction, and you will have to take it into a shop to get it fixed. One thing that I suggest, is that you contact Nintendo with your problem, because they are usually pretty nice, and could possibly correct the problem with ease.

On my daughter's nintendo ds lite, she turns it on and the top screens stays blank; while the bottom screen flashes white. This nintendo ds lite was given to her as gift and was second hand. So there is no...

For the price you would pay to repair it yourselves you might as well buy a new ds. The one thing you could try that would not be that expensive would be to buy a new battery for it. If that doesn't work I would suggest sending it in to Nintendo for repairs. There customer service is really good and they might hook you up if you explain your situation. If not then they can repair it for a fee that would be less then buying a new DS.

Nintendo Ds Lite Top Screen Problem(pls help:( )

It is probably the connectors connecting the screen to the bottom part where the CPU is. My portable Wii screen does the same thing. If you can live with it, your OK, but you might need a new DS. I recommend a DSi!
