The problem will stem from the cracked right hand hinge and the ribbon and wire that connects to the top screen may have some damage that will be causing the other issue's. The console will require a complete new housing or you may be able to pick up a second hand part from console repair shop, they may have a top section spare that will save on a full housing repair. That will solve the hinge, but a top screen may be also required!!

Could you please tell me how my granddaughter can pause her spectrodes ds game as she keeps losing her points when she leaves the game.


Hello there.

Usually, games on DS has a pause option by pressing "START". But there are some games which doesn't have that option, but you can still pause it by "Closing the DS" so it will go to "Sleep". Don't turn it off! Just close it.

Please rate my answer.

The top screen on my ds lite keeps flickering lines. this gets worse the longer it's on for but it does seem to help if i play while on charge or close and re-open the ds. I'm not sure what needs replacing...


It might be worth checking the ribbon cable for the top screen is tight in the socket on the main board, this could explain why the screen gets back to normal when you close the ds then reopen. The ribbon cable for the top screen is in the hinge on the left side of the ds when open, the only way to check this is to take the back of the ds, to do this you will need a small philips screw driver and a tri-wing screw driver which you can get of ebay quite cheap. The worst possible fault is the top screen is faulty and needs to be changed, if you do a search in youtube you will find videos on how to do this, they are good and quite detailed. hope this helps.

My dell C610 Screen does not come back on when i reopen the lid. I turn the computer on use it then close the lid for about a min then reopen it and the screen just stays off but the computer itself is...


Known issue. The windows default settings for power saving mode tell the computer to switch it off (sleep) when the lid is closed. The sleep mode doesn't turn completely the computer, just the visualization devices (mainly screen, also some other components not required for the computer).
What I would advise you to do after restarting the computer (press on the power button for a very long time, until you cannot hear it working), is to change the power settings.
go to control panel, choose "power options", then see if you have "choose what closing the lid does". If it's not there (not all laptops show this option), choose "change when the computer sleeps", then change " put the computer to sleep" to "never".

That should do it. if you have any questions feel free to ask me.

My ds lite images on the top screen flickering.


Open up the DS and then unseat and reseat the ribbon cable that goes to the screen.

Once you do that, turn on the DS and if the screen is still flickering then the screen will need to be replaced.

Here is a tutorial on how to open up the DS and what the ribbon cable looks like:

I have a microsoft life cam vx 5000. During video call the video is extremely grainy or "boxy"....audio is choppy....constant flickering in the picture. Cannot go a few seconds without the picture...


Sounds like a network problem. Is your internet connection intermittent? Or maybe a bandwidth problem.
Try using a cabled connection in case you are using wireless.
Close all other applications that are using the internet connection.
