Re: Nintendo DS replaced case

The battery may have run out, use the charger that comes with the console.

SOURCE: Nintendo DS New CASE Fitted

Hmm, when you removed the top screen's flex cable, were you very gentle indeed? It could have been torn when pushing it through the metal barrel in the hinge and working it into place through the slot in the case. Otherwise it may just not be pushed fully home into its connector socket.

First remove the new case and see what you get - if it all works fine then the case must be pinching a cable or pressing on something it shouldn't. Check the unit with AC only or battery power only. The faint click is probably the power switch membrane clicking across - probably indicating that the switch itself is fine - but check at least visually and with a meter if you can. the most likely causes of the problem if removing the case again does not get it working are; Loose connector - probably where the screen hinge is, or where those cables connect to -check anything that you could have moved. Is it an official original case? some cheap copies may be badly fitting, although I found no info on any problem like this so far. If you have a card inserted, try with a different one or without one. check nothing got in the card slot and no pins are bent - especially if you just put a card back in after replacing the case. Especially could be problem if your DS was set in Auto start-up mode before. Possibly unconnected to the case change, the power supply or battery could have failed. Check through this link and see if it helps identify if that is the problem. Do you get any power or charging lights? nintendo do not recommend it, but it may be worth removing and reinstalling the battery in order to reset the unit. proceed with care. Here is the link to the manual if you need it; Hope this helps - please post back with more details :)

My nintendo ds won't charge I tired everything is

If you DS isn't charging there are two possible things that could be causing this.

The first one is that the batter inside the DS is shot, in which case you'd have to replace it.

The other one also requires replacement, and that's assuming your charger itself isn't working. Either way, you're probably going to need to replace something.

One way you could tell which is messed up is to try and charge someone else's DS. If that doesn't work then it's most likely the charger.

Hope I was able to help.

Well something more appropriate i guess would be my ongoing issue with DS's that have had screens replaced.

if you could describe something for me

as the unit will not power ,,, plug in the charger, if it is as i suspect you will get an orange light illuminate for 1 second, after it goes off the unit is unresponsive until you unplug and replug the charger.

if this describes your problem i would be most interested to hear weather you used the ORIGINAL screen or if it is a replacement screen

Nintendo ds to screen broken

Hi, replacing the original nds upper screen is a fairly straight forward procedure, you need to remove the 4 x small plastic plugs located in the corners of upper screen, then remove the 4 x phillips screws, the top outer back part of the case will seperate and you can gain access to the screen. Firstly remove the small screw holding down the right hand pcboard to gain access to the ribbon connectors, release the larger flat connector by hinging the clip up, slide the ribbon out, underneath you will see a tiny connector, gently ease the small clip back towards the ribbon, prising a little each side at a time, remove the ribbon and then you can prise the screen from the case.
These guys sell the replacement screens prices are very competitive and offer next day delivery!
