Green light, black screens, no sound, needs new battery???

The alarm is just a coincidence i suspect, green light comes on and stays on probably not the battery at fault. It would be red.
If the green light goes out and screens just flash one of your screens are at fault or a loose ribbon connection.

The ds turns on but screen remains black


Either 2 things. Your Wireless Wifi Board has gone bad or it has fallen off.

Open up your nintendo DS and look for the black wire connected to a small board. You will know because there are only 2 wires running in the DS. A white one (microphone) A black one (wifi)

This WIFI board (if gone bad) causes the DS to cut on, but get no video at all.

When i turn on my ds the top screen gets frozen

Call Nintendo, or check their troubleshooting pages. But first make sure that you have never spilled or let your DS come in ANY contact with any liquids, which includes water. If you put your DS settings to "autoplay", check the game card for any dust or other things.

Nintendo ds NEED HELP

My DS touch screen is very light. If you turn look at a particular angle you can still see what is shown on the screen, but other than that, the screen looks white. I have already changed the touch pad and that was not the problem. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Nintendo ds won't start pokemon diamond game

Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to
