Cannot power up the DS Nintendo. The light will come on for a split second and than go off again.


I bet you have replaced a screen or opened the DS. The ribbon cables for the screens have to be securely located and ALL THE WAY into the holders otherwise the DS lights to show an error. the ribbon cable error looks like this when you power on--- Dim green for a second then bright pulse green then off.
If this is happening its a cable error RE-SEAT even if you think they are. If you get that error it is deffinately cable.

If you want to buy a Nintendo screwdriver and work patiently, this is an easy fix.
One of your ribbon cables is being pulled out or is not connecting when you open your DS.
If you go to www.powergamingparts.com you can find manuals to assist you in opening the DS and where to locate the "clips" that you will need to tighten.
If you need any further assistance contact me.

My nintendo ds top screen is white


it might be that the ribbon cable connecting the top screen with the bottom screen is loose. you can open it and fix it by yourself, if you want. if it doesn't fix the problem, is either the screen or the ribbon cable that needs replacement.

My ds lite images on the top screen flickering.


Open up the DS and then unseat and reseat the ribbon cable that goes to the screen.

Once you do that, turn on the DS and if the screen is still flickering then the screen will need to be replaced.

Here is a tutorial on how to open up the DS and what the ribbon cable looks like:

Faulty game console


Maybe the ribbon cable was damaged. the ribbon cable is a flat wire thing used to connect the top screen and bottom screen. you can buy a ribbon cable on ebay for a cheap price.

if that wasn't the problem, maybe the bottom lcd screen is dead. you'll need to replace that.

No sound on nintendo ds. How do I fix?


The speakers are wired from the ribbon cable that also provides the top screen illumination. That cable gets plenty of abuse by opening & closing the DS. Could be a break/tear in that ribbon cable. Does either speaker work? both are bad? If neither work, it's a rather involved process to fix yourself (soldering, etc). You can mail it away for service. Call Nintendo to get a quote.

Either the ribbon cable is bad or the LCD is bad. Either way it'll take replacing one of them and the procedure is pretty much the same. If the DS is under a year old Nintendo will replace it free.

Ds cable problem


You'll need to replace the cable with an exact replacement so that it doesn't tear or wear out on its' own in the future.

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

thanx
