Yes, the top screen cable is going bad. Is your hinge cracked? It is a DS and not a DS Lite? If so, I would bet the hinge is cracked. I replace the screen for $50.00 Total. Parts and Labor.

Mommyturtle, i suggest that you send it in. This will ensure that you get your DS back without loss on your part. But, if you would like instructions on how to fix your unit (This will void any warranties on your unit), please email me at and I will step you through it.

The top screen of my ds is white.

FYI. the ds, gameboys, etc use INK surprisingly. try refilling cartrigas or it means your screen is going BAD!

Blank white screen

Try using some alcohol to clean the contacts of the card and leave some on and reinsert a few times - leave to evaporate and try again - sounds like dirty contacts!

Ds lite top screen problem

My ds has the same problem, except it stays white! but only because the cords on the left side of the ds (bust the part where the two light indicators are, power and charging, and slide the top screen to the right, then you should see the cords.) are not connected ore are lose from the central part of the ds. Ask nintendo or somebody who is a whire repairer to connect these wires.

Nintendo DS lite - dropped

Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white

if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie
