DS Lite: Green light, touch screen flashes white and turns off problem.
Replaced the top lcd screen of a friend's NDSL and got the green light, touch screen flashes white and turns off problem. I think it is a ribbon cable problem, but I've checked them 10 times now , even that pesky little one. I don't want to fiddle with the little one anymore, so need to narrow down which cable it is most likely to be.... I'm thinking the top screen one that you roll up and push through the crack...just wondered what you guys think. Or else do you think I've blown a fuse?

I had the exact same problem, i just fixed it a minute ago by pushing the ribbon cable in farther. make sure you push on both sides of it with your fingernails until it goes all the way in then latch it down.

Hello there! First of all let me tell you that your nintendo ds can be repaired and it is not trash... what you need is to get the bottom screen to be repaired ....you can do it sending it to the nintendo repair shop or by doing it yourself by following this youtube guide http://www.youtube.com/user/nintendorepair.
The bottom screen is made up of 2 parts the screen itself and the touch screen mambrane which sits on top of the screen, if the touch part is still woking then the screen is faulty and will need to be replaced. There are some good videos on youtube that will run you through the process of changing just the screen.
Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.
Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)
If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.
If the light on the lcd on the top is green and your text on the bottom is faded, get to the main ds menu (where the pictochat,ds download play, and the game.) and look on the bottom left, There you bwill find a sun shaped icon, touch this icon and it should contrast the light. (or the f4 fuse busted).
