Question about Nintendo DS Console
How do you undo the top screen wire... trying to replace a broken case. The hinges are broken
I have been looking at the Instructables Website for a solution. Some of it is useful in getting the power to come on after replacing the screen. I had the same problem and all the advice is useless unless you observe 2 very basic things. Its true the reason the DS doesn't power up is because of the little ribbon cable. First observe the original cable. Its crimped. I crimped mine in a similar fashion . Then VERY VERY IMPORTANT. The gold on the small ribbon is FACING UP. Therefore it is obvious the little black wedge clip GOES UNDER THE RIBBON CABLE TO PUSH IT UP INTO THE CONTACTS. I even broke my little wedge and my Nintendo DS is working flawlessly. See some people will give you a hint of good advice but no one will give you direct to the point good advice. Maybe some repairmen want to secure their jobs. HA HA HA!!! I'm a Hell of and Engineer that didn't buy a New Nintendo DS ;-)

There is a little black bar across copper colored connection wires leading into the tan connection box...lift it up ever so lightly by placing fingernail underneath... see http://www.instructables.com/id/SED515GFA0CVIFN/
warning... I have been replacing cover this evening for 3 hours only to find the right hinge piece that inserts into the lighted power tab doesn't rotate.... IE this was what caused the hinge to break in the first place and this torque/force problem causes the left hinge to break which is posted all over the internet and seems nintendo would have replaced all that for free anyway....I was searching this issue when I found your post SSLong hth
