Re: Dim bottom screen on DS Lite

There should be either a button or a setting to adjust the lighting, try doing that.

Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

My DS screen has gone very dim, difficult to play games on as its not very bright. Any ideas how to fix it?

Remove gamecard.
Turn it on and tap the screen.
On the main screen, in the left down corner you will see a sun icon. Taop on it with your stylus to make your screen brighter

Screen brightness

When you power up, make sure you don't have a game in to the unit. When the Menu screen comes up, there should be an icon in the bottom left corner that looks like a sun. Pressing this icon should allow you to change the brightness setting.
Hope it works!
