Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Taking cover off nintendo ds lite


Are you talking about the back cover or front cover?
Either way, before starting you are going to need two things: A tri-wing screwdriver and a Philips screwdriver.

To remove the BOTTOM COVER, you must take off the stickers covering the screws and remove the screws. 001e10e1-317e-4bb5-97cd-230a82f77aaf.jpg
Then, carefully pry the back off, revealing the motherboard inside.

To remove the TOP COVER, you must take off the stickers covering the four screws in the corners of the INSIDE top screen. Unscrew them and gently push the inside top screen down until its about half a centimeter apart from it's backside. Then pull the backside off and you have it open.

If you wanted to open the DS completely, like have it in half, you should first open the BOTTOM COVER and remove the motherboard after disconnecting it from everything attached to it. Then follow the steps given for removing the TOP COVER and slide the ribbon and cables sticking through from the TOP to the BOTTOM back to the TOP so that they are not sticking through and won't be damaged when you take the DS apart. Then unscrew the power light and voila! The DS should be separated.

Opening an older HP Scanjet 3300C case ??


I recently picked up a SJ 3300Cse and have the same issue.

On mine, on the top of the scanner near the hinges there are two small white rubber peices that are very well camoflaged. If you remove them you'll see the two screws to open the hinge side of the case.

Good Luck.

sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

To remove the top external casing first you have to separate the top part from the bottom part of the DS by dissasembling the bottom part and unplugging the top screen ribbon and the white and black wires, then slide these cables through the hinge hole to separate the parts.

Then you must take out the 4 screws under the cover pads in the screen side, and slide the screen side from the external side so the screen side should move like 5mm from the external side and then you would be able to separate both and see the screen, mic and speakers.

Broken Hinge


There are plenty of replacement cases available from a popular auction web site, if your proficient with a screwdriver and have a lot of patience then you should be OK. Take great care when refitting the top screen ribbon cable (and taking it apart in the first place), the WIFI arial cable is awfully fiddly as it needs to be threaded under the slot 1 cartridge mechanism and finally take great care refitting the bottom case as plenty of people have reported snapping the plastic part of the power switch when reassembling. I reckon a first attempt should take 1-2 hours so clear the dining room table and don't forget to buy a tri wing driver when you get your replacement case if you haven't already got one. Best of luck.
