Re: it tuns on then turn off the top is half broken

The right-hand hinge has a flex cable going through it from the top LCD screen to the lower portion of the case. The broken top will have allowed movement which tears the thin flex cable. Only solution is a new top LCD screen (eBay).

My daughter has a DSi, only half of the top screen is visible.

That means she dropped it and its broken. On the bottom of the DS is a number you can call and they will email/mail you a ups voucher to mail the DS in and fix it. This usually costs $60 outside of warranty or free if its still within the warranty.

Wont turn on

Check the connectors inside, particularly the flex cable joining the bottom half of the case to the top half. Make sure they are inserted correctly, detach and reinsert to be sure.

DS broken in half

I recommend you to change the broken case, you can choose to change only the hinge and keep the good case parts or change the entire shell. By the way stores usually sell the entire shell so you can choose. As your screens are still working you are lucky because so often the brown flexible conductor to the top screen get broken so be careful.

You can also use a silicon or hard plastic case to put over your broken NDSL to keep it in place just as the fast non technical option.

Here are some links and you can find text and video guides googling around.

Shells in ebay
Other stores items



Good Luck...
