Hi,

This is most likely caused by either a loose connection or a faulty screen.

If it's under warranty i'd suggest sendng it in otherwise you can either take it to a local repair shop or repair it yourself.

Firstly when you take the ds apart disconnect the top screen and then re-attatch it just to be sure if its the connection or not, if a re-connection works then your sorted... if not you will have to replace the screen.

The screen can be bought from ebay. You will also have to do a bit of soldering as the speakers will need to be removed from the old screen and soldered onto the new one.

If you need any more help with changing the screen then give me a message and I will do my best to help you out.

Top scree is flickering


If the top screen flicked once and cut out or is flickering, the cause is most likely a damaged ribbon cable that goes through the ds's hinge. A damaged hinge is the cause of the problem. You can get it repaired for free by nintendo if you still have warranty on it.

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:

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken


if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.
Thanks
