Question about Nintendo DSi Matte Blue Console

1 Answer

Nintendo DSi bottom screen flashes then dies

When I turn my Dsi, the bottom screen flashes (not the top) and then turns back off. I can plug it in the charger and it will charge, but it doesn't help anything. I've tried removing the battery for a bit and putting it back in, but still does the same thing. I'm hearing some stuff like my top screen might not work (because only the bottom screen flashes) or maybe it's from water damage or something. But, I really want to fix it, so... What do I do? Thanks

You almost certainly have one or more blown capacitors on the board (probably just one). You will need to open it up, find the blown capacitor (convex top, instead of flat), and replace it. If you are unsure about doing soldering work on a board, get a friend who does this kind of thing. It's not expensive.

SOURCE: my nintendo dsi will not turn on and the orange

This is a sign that the battery has had either a leak or a malfunction and needs to be replaced. If you have anyone that has a battery you can use, see if that will work, otherwise you will need to get a replacement battery. If your system is still under warranty, Nintendo will happily replace it for you.

SOURCE: when i insert my R4i for DSi card, it start to say

You're not going to find manual support for a flash card like the R4.
Your best bet is to just reformat the SD card and start over again.
There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page.


If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it.

Best of luck!

Top and bottom screens are white


Sorry for the delay. If the dsi won't turn off when you first get the white screens, hold the power button for 8 seconds. The unit should go off. Take the game cartridge out of the unit and inside that cartridge slot, is a reset button. Using a toothpick or something, press it. Turn the unit back on and it should be fine. Hope this helps :D

How to Replace a Nintendo DSi Touch Screen


Finding someone to fix a Nintendo DSi touch screen can be time-consuming and costly. However, with the right tools, you can do it yourself. Even if you've never tried fixing anything until now.

Instructions

things you'll need:

* Tri-wing screwdriver
* Precision Phillips screwdriver
* Precision flathead screwdriver
* New Nintendo DSi touch screen




Turn the Nintendo DSi over and find the five screws on the edges of the bottom. Take each one out with your tri-wing screwdriver. In the center you will find an additional screw that will need to be removed with a precision Phillips screwdriver. This keeps your battery in place.


Take the battery out. Underneath it you will find two screws that must be removed with the tri-wing screwdriver. After both have been taken out, pull up on the bottom casing to access the motherboard. In order to replace a Nintendo DSi touch screen, this will have to be removed.


Detach the right and left buttons in the top corners by pulling up. Underneath each one will be a spring---make sure you don't lose these. Then remove the four screws in the middle of the motherboard with the precision Phillips screwdriver.


Look for the ribbon attached on the bottom left corner of the motherboard. Take a precision flathead screwdriver and pull up on the black bar that connects the ribbon. You should be able to slide it out by pulling back.


Find the two small connectors that are locked in with two tiny clips on each one. Lift up on all four clips to pull out the underlying connectors. Take out the motherboard and turn it upside down. Now you are ready to replace your DSi touch screen.


Detach the Nintendo DSi touch screen with your fingernails. Pull it away from the adhesive, one side at a time. Take the new screen and peel away the protective plastic before replacing it. Line it up where the old touch screen was and reassemble the Nintendo DSi.

Hope it helped...

Hi , when i turn my Nintendo DSi on the power light comes on but not the screens, they remain blank , what can be done to repair this


I have seen this problem on a couple of DS's.

The most likely problem:

If the screens don't come on or the top screen flashes white right after the power is turned on, the wires connecting the top screen to the bottom have broken or worn down. You would have to take the case apart and splice in new wire to repair it.

Battery? console has no charge when plugged into wall outlet I push power button blue LED comes on briefly , then red flashes 3 times, and the yellow LED lights up along with the health warning on the...


What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.


    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

    If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.
    Call 1-800-255-3700 if you still need help.
