Yes, this is a fairly easy problem to fix.

There are a few things that could have happened, the most likely thatone of you cable clips is loose, and when you open it fully, it pullsit out just enough so that the connection is lost.

Your going toneed to open your DS, (the forms at www.powergamingparts.com are thebest forms to find these instructions) then just disable your clip, andreinsert it, and then close the clip, and put you DS back together.Just ask if you need any additional help.

My DS screens don't work right


Hi, if you have 2ds's have you tried the other board, sound like the ribbon cables are definitely not pushed in all the way, wiggle in until the little lugs at the sides touch the white clip, could have faulty clips on the board and you definitely don't want to be changing them.
Enjoy

Hello.

There is a problem with the connection of your top screen. Try bending it A BIT backward or forward until you get a display. BUT that is just a "temporary solution". You will eventually need to bring it to a service center and if it is badly damaged, they will replace the top screen.

Please rate my answer.

My ds lite won't turn on both fuses are good the top screen was broke so I tried another screen I had that dident work. So I put the old one back on and now the ds wont turn on .The green lite flashes then...


Hi,

It's all to do with the top screen... What happens is that when you turn the DS lite on it performs a quick check on the screens to make sure they are connected properly, if one or both are not connected properly then the unit will shut down.
The flashing of the screen shows you that that particular screen is fine whereas the one that does nothing is not connected properly, either through a loose connection or faulty screen/ ribbon.

Your best bet is to buy a new top screen (I usually get mine from ebay for around £10-£12) and fit it. That should sort out your issue.

Any further problems or questions feel free to message me via my profile page.

Regards,

My nintendo ds lite won't turn on


This is usually the top screen at fault as the ribbon cable gets damaged when opening/closing especially if it gets sticky, from sticky fingers. Sometimes it's the bottom screen and sometimes it's a corroded motherboard(this needs my expert attention!). But 9/10 it's the topscreen.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps
