Hi my ds lite wont charge it will start up fine then just turn off


When you turn it on do you see either the top or bottom screen flash for a second? This is part of a start up test the system does to make sure the screens are working properly.

My ds lite wont power on how can i fix it?


One of you're screens is broken or the F2 fuse has blown.

Check youtube for a video on "how to check my DS lite F2 fuses" there are several available that give step by step guidance on how to do this.

Having checked these (and replaced blown ones) and you're screens are still not working then it is a screen that has blown.

If the bottom screen flashes for a split second when you turn it on then it is you're TOP screen that has blown and needs to be replaced. If it doen't flash then it is you're bottom screen that is broken and needs to be replaced.

My nintendo lite wont turn on-the green lite is on but thats all-


Which LCD is blinking?

If your top screen is blinking before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the bottom screen.

If the bottom screen blinks before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the top screen.


Can you confirm?

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

RE:nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?solution


Wotterz.

This is a problem with the cpu on the systemboard. I've seen this problem many times if the DS Lite is felt to the ground. The contacts of the cpu are very fragile. The DS Lite turns on, green led available, even charche is working bot nothing else. Repair of this problem is almost impossible. The only thing you can do is send it to Nintendo.

You can test if it is the cpu by removing the bottom of the DS Lite and put the battery on te contacts.
Press firmly on slot 1 (the aluminium cover) and turn the DS Lite on. If you got a picture on the screens then you know it for sure. The cpu is located under slot 1 and by pressing on de top of the slot you are pressing possible loose contacts back on de systemboard.

If it is not working then the cpu is to musch damaged.

Let us know what you've found with this solution.

BLAnk screen


well if its under warrenty I would suggest sending it into nintendo if not and you are getting black screens either the connector inside the ds itself has become loose or both the screens are no good anymore.

its pretty tight working inside a ds lite and over time the wires get pinched more and more if the base of the shell is squeezed too much cause breaks in the only a few wires placed in the base of the shell.(under the bottom screen)

I would suggest anyone with this issue to contact nintendo or find a person who can fix them to run a few more test since I dont have the unit I am unable to be 100% sure of the issue at hand.

DS LITE ? Green light stays on but screens or sound do not come on !!


I have some motherboards of ds lite with the same problem. If you twists a lillte the motherboard near the power switch, the system powers up without a problem. When you removes torsion, the ds freezes. perhaps there are problems with some weldings. I don't know the real solution.

Bottom screen scrambled on nintendo ds lite


This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.

Open the device following this info:
How to dismantle an Original Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:
"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

The bottom screens have 2 wrap wires, one big and visible, that is the screen cable, the other is small and not so obvious and this one is for the touch screen and you dont want to get it broken.

The cable connectors release the cable by lifting ot pulling the brown or black lock and be sure to remember how it was connected so you can know the right position of the cable when connected right not having any problem with loosen cables before you finish.

Good Luck...

Nintendo DS Lite Top Screen -Stopped workign completely


I have a solution! I am a mechanical engineering student at Purdue. My little brother spilled water on his DS lite and the screens had little weird warbly spots on it, but it still worked. He asked me if I could fix it.
I bought replacement screens for it and went to work tearing it apart. Once I got the screens replaced, I put it back together and tried it. It worked perfectly, but then something happened and it stopped altogether. After that, when I would slide the power switch on, the light blinked on and the bottom screen turned on. Then, the unit quickly powered-off and that was the end of it.
After a lot of research I found what the problem was. It was discovered that a lot of DSs were "Bricking," or stopped working, same problems as you guys have. You need to reroute some sections of the motherboard to bypass defunct safety mechanisms. If you would like more information, please email me at charlyoak@msn.com. As each case can vary. I have repaired a large number of DSs and DS lites. Chances are, I can help you too!

Ds not lite


Replace the connector cord between two screens. You can buy new ones from DX Deal extreme! Carefully remove through hinge and attach securely.

Be careful not to break the fine wires connecting. Have to twist the connector cord in the correct way to make it go through hinge without damaging.

Good luck cos it is a fiddly job.
