Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
My brother carelessly dropped his DS and I'm trying to fix it, but the problem is that the bottem screen for the DS is completly white. You can still touch screen still works and everything, just you can't see anything but white. Does anyone know if maybe a wire disconnected on him when he dropped it? If so, please specify.
I have new touch screens and will install them for $24

Hi their is only i thing you can try yourself as if it is anything else it probably requires soldering and new parts.
on the bottom screen their will be a ribbon its really thin and will clip onto the board from the screen the same with the top one the only thing you can do yourself is check that the ribbon hasnt come out of the housing and is causing a bad conection it might have a sticky bit of thin tape over the conector this holds the ribbon in and prevents it from moving out of the connector you will need to check both ends of this.
try pushing the ribbon back into the conector without removing the tape and see if this solves the problem.
If you can see the clips holding the ribbon into the connector you can undo these should just clip open the remove the ribbon and put it back in again the push clips back to lock position.
If this dont solve your problem then the chances are you need the screen replacing but your problem is the same with mobile phoned and removing the ribbon and putting it back in again usually solves this problem let me know how you get on ok
