Nintendo DS battery installed backward - How to trouble shoot?

Hello, I was replacing the case on my Nintendo DS . I had changed over the top screen and half of the bottom screen, when I wanted to check to see if the screen had a good connection, so I took the battery and held it to the contacts... only I was talking to my daughter as I did it, not realizing that I had the battery backward! Now I have a brand new looking DS that doesn't work! Anyone have a troulbleshooting start or quick location of the blown chip?

    Well, after kicking myself in the butt for the error, it was an easy fix. Fuse F2 was blown.

    I would never buy anything from Gamestop or EB Games, they are a ripoff and killing the video game industry!

Take your back case off and check your Digitizer connection if its connected as it has happen a bunch of time when repairing DS, its located next to your right bumper.

My Nintendo ds lites screen is not working i dont know why? the coulour is white on the top screen and it has white lines all over it but the bottom screen is fine. Please i need help may you please give...


Hello.

There is a problem with the connection of your top screen. Try bending it A BIT backward or forward until you get a display. BUT that is just a "temporary solution". You will eventually need to bring it to a service center and if it is badly damaged, they will replace the top screen.

Please rate my answer.

My nintendo ds lite as no sound but it works fine with head phones in can you help me please


It works well with the headphones?
Well.. That's odd.
Check the left side of your DS volume.
there's a toggle button that says
- VOL +
======
toggle it rightly,as the volume will get higher. Maybe your headphones can adjust the volume. So either contact www.nintendo.com or call Nintendo 1-800-255-3700. Or if you like your DS with headphones,keep it that way.

My sons ds lite will not turn on the green light comes on and a white light flickers on bottom screen and thats all, I changed the battery and still no luck. Help! thanks


it's likely that the top screen ribbon cable has either become damaged or loose, the entire top screen will probably need replacing (along with the casing if the hinge is broken).. if you are not confident with technical or fiddley things I wouldnt recommend attempting it yourself.

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Top screen


This is very unusual and I've never come across it. I can only think there has been some type of software corruption as you can not put the screen in backwards or upside down.

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.

Conection?


Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo2.gif DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video2.gif in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS2.gif Lite"

And after opening it you can do your work. Make sure the flexible cables connecting the top screen part of your DS are well in place and not broken. Your problem may be only a loosen cable but in case the cable is broken you gonna need a replacement. Be careful not to damage the screen or other sensitive electronic parts on your device and you will be on your way.

Good Luck...

Nintendo ds to screen broken


Hi, replacing the original nds upper screen is a fairly straight forward procedure, you need to remove the 4 x small plastic plugs located in the corners of upper screen, then remove the 4 x phillips screws, the top outer back part of the case will seperate and you can gain access to the screen. Firstly remove the small screw holding down the right hand pcboard to gain access to the ribbon connectors, release the larger flat connector by hinging the clip up, slide the ribbon out, underneath you will see a tiny connector, gently ease the small clip back towards the ribbon, prising a little each side at a time, remove the ribbon and then you can prise the screen from the case.

Nintendo DS Top Screen color is faint.


It's very possible that you didn't remove the protective film that the top screens almost always come packaged with. If that's not the case it might just be a loose connection, but that's doubtful, or a lesser quality screen.
