This was most likely to be caused if the DS was knocked or bashed about during the delievery or shipping. If you had taken more concern over the problem when you first noticed it, you may have been able to get this fixed within a year or under of your perchase. NOTE: only be able to do the above if you still had the paperwork and warranty. Im not a hundred percent sure if you can still get it fixed anywhere now but just take extra care with it.

Tip

DS Lite Top Screen Replacement


Hi,

Has your top screen devlouped a fault or stopped working altogether? Here is my guide to re-connecting a new top screen and fitting a new one.

Take the DS lite apart (a tri wing screwdriver is needed and can be found cheap on ebay), disconnect the top screen by lifiting the motherboards connector flap (located near the hindge) and then re-insert it, try switching it on again and see if thats sorted it. If not then you will need to replace the screen. (If you need help taking the DS lite apart then check out my other tips and tricks posted on here).

A new screen can be brought on ebay for a reasonable price, there will be a little soldering required as the speakers will need to be de-soldered from the old screen and re-soldered onto the new one (please take note of which wire goes where).

Remove the screws from the lid of the DS lite (4x screws hidden under little coloured squares above and below both speaker outlets) slide the top/outer part away from the hindges, it will move about 5mm and then you can lift it off... Gently pull the ribbon through the hindge so that it is free from the bottom part of the DS lite, pry the screen away from the shell (a small amount of force may be required to remove it) remove the front plastic part of the screen (with the respective DS lite coloured frame, de-solder the speakers, re-attatch them to the new screen, place the new screen into the housing along with the speakers and put back the wifi and mic to their original position if they got moved, you will notice a slot in the hindge where the ribbon goes in, this is for the ribbon to easily slide back into the bottom part of the DS lite... pop the ribbon through and then re-attatch it to the motherboard with the connector, pressing down the connectors flap.

Screw the DS lite back together, after this you will need to place the plastic sheet with the respective DS lite coloured frame back onto the top screen... The reason you don't put it on any time before that is if you put it on prior to putting the new screen in place you will have great difficulty trying to get it correctly aligned.

If you find that your DS lite now doesn't want to stay powered on please refer to my other tips and tricks I have issued on here.

I hope this helps and have to say that I accept no responsability for any damage that may occur to your DS lite when following these tips.

When I turn on my DS lite, the green light and bottom screen flash briefly and it turns itself off. This is even with the charger plugged in (which indicates that it is charging).


Hi there, this is unfortunately because the top screen has become faulty. Whichever screen flashes it is the opposite screen that is faulty.

You can buy the screens quite cheaply from such places as amazon and ebay.

To replace the screen itself is a little tricky, especially as it is the top screen that is faulty.

If you do an internet search on how to replace the top screen of a ds lite you will find that there are plenty of guides out there but please read through them first to make sure that you are comfortable carrying out the repair.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I have just changed the top screen and now when i turn it on the screen flashes and turns off


Depending on which screen flashes tells you which screen is faulty. If the screen you have just changed flashes then it is the bottom screen that is faulty. However I have known the DS to be rather sensitive when it comes to connections. Take the DS apart again and reinsert the ribbon cables that connect the screens to the motherboard. This will hopefully correct the problem.

Hope this helps.

The top screen on my DS Lite lights up but there is no picture, the touch screen works fine and so dose every thing ellse.


Hi,

Chances are the screens ribbon connectior has become loose or the screen has develouped a fault.

If its under warranty then send it in, otherwise you can take it to a local repair shop or do a bit of DIY.

Take the DS lite apart (a tri wing screwdriver is needed and can be found cheap on ebay), disconnect the top screen by lifiting the motherboards connector flap (located near the hindge) and then re-insert it, try switching it on again and see if thats sorted it.

Screw the DS lite back together and hope fully this has resolved the issue.

Top screen flickers


Have you dropped the console? has it been knocked? either the game card is faulty, or the screen is damaged in some way. Do not try to fix the screen by yourself, however, get someone who knows exactly what they're doing.
