Hi,

Your only real solution is to have the screen replaced, If you are going to repair/ replace the screen yourself you can first try and reseat the connection to see if that resolves the issue but to be honest I don't think it will really help.

They are very inexpensive and don't take long to do.

If you have a warranty then I would suggest sending it off... If not you can either use a repair service (there are some good ones on ebay) or you can replace it yourself.

I have some guides written up that will help you through all the processes needed to do this, to access them simply click on my name to reach my profile, on my profile you wil find all my guides I have written.

Ebay sell all the parts and tools you will need for the replacement screen job.

If you require any assistance or further advice please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help out.

Regards,

On my daughter's nintendo ds lite, she turns it on and the top screens stays blank; while the bottom screen flashes white. This nintendo ds lite was given to her as gift and was second hand. So there is no...


For the price you would pay to repair it yourselves you might as well buy a new ds. The one thing you could try that would not be that expensive would be to buy a new battery for it. If that doesn't work I would suggest sending it in to Nintendo for repairs. There customer service is really good and they might hook you up if you explain your situation. If not then they can repair it for a fee that would be less then buying a new DS.

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


Hi,

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.

It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.

The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.

My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.

This should solve your issue.

If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.

Hope this helps,

The top screen fades to pale after the ds has been on for about 10 seconds


The DS must have got a small bang and this has damaged the LCD screens crystal structure. You will have to replace the screen as there is no other way of resolving this issue.

Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

Non-working top screen


If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white


if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie
