Re: scrambled screen

Sounds like your touch screen is broken. Two choices. One: If it still has a warranty, then send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search on sites like Ebay for replacement touch screens, and buy one. Then replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new touch screen.

Bottom touch screen has coloured vertical lines all over it

the colour fault is the bottom lcd screen but you may need a touch screen aswell if its been stood on it may be damaged have you tried touching the screen when its powered up to see if it works as this would eliminate the touch screen.

Bottom touch screen has vertical lines all over it

This is a common problem amongst DS lites. It won't go away but it doesn't affect anything so just ignore it.

My douther drop the DS and now the screen is multi color, how can i change the DS??

Most probably the multi color screen means te screen is broken. Both screens (top and bottom ) can be replaced, it takes a special tri-wing screw driver to open the DS, price of the screen to replace +/- € 20.

Picto chat

If the controls aren't messed up anymore, the DS should be fine. Just don't let him use picto chat anymore. If the controls are still messed up; take the DS to Nintendo for help, Explaining EXACTLY what happened.

If you explain what happened; Nintendo will be able to fix this stuff from now on, creating firmware to prevent hackers.

Honestly, I've never heard of anything like this before, but it sickens me, knowing that people will just screw with other peoples' EXPENSIVE stuff, just because it makes them feel superior.

DS Lite's top screen has horizontal black lines

i found a REALLY easy solution! the most likley problem is that there is dust in the GBA/DS game card slot! it corrupts the connectors (i dont want 2 explain how it gets into the system) so step one: wrap a small peice of tissue around the stylus(make sure DS is turned ON)
step two: LIGHTLY go inside the GBA/DS slot with the tissue wrapped stylus.
step three: shut down DS system and turn on again
problem solved! hope this helps.

Bottom screen scrambled on nintendo ds lite

This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.

Open the device following this info:
How to dismantle an Original Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:
"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

The bottom screens have 2 wrap wires, one big and visible, that is the screen cable, the other is small and not so obvious and this one is for the touch screen and you dont want to get it broken.

The cable connectors release the cable by lifting ot pulling the brown or black lock and be sure to remember how it was connected so you can know the right position of the cable when connected right not having any problem with loosen cables before you finish.

Good Luck...
