This tends to be old age. If it gets too major, I recommend that you update to a DS Lite. If you don't want to do this, you may want to just deal with it. Hope this helps.

My Super Nintendo-- Black screen, white lines, buzzing sound


You just need to clean the game. Wipe the gold strip on the bottom of the game with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol.

Black lines 1/8 of an inch apart going down my screen when playin


I had this happen a few times, then after a while it stoped working all together. In the end I was getting the E74 message code appear when I turned on my xbox 360.

You'll probley get this happen with yours soon, the E74 code means theres a problem with your visual display.

Sometimes it can be as simple as changing your HD Lead or scart lead, whatever your using. If you know someone else with a xbox try theirs.

If this doesn't work you'll have to send it off to mircosoft, it will be free if your still under warrenty, if not I think it's about £100+

Or you could go on www.cd24-7.co.uk and buy one of their DIY kits.

Hope this helps.

Single verticle black line on top screen of ds lite:(


Sounds like you have something wrong with the LCD screen, and there isn't much you can do about it except buy another top/bottom piece from NINTENDO.

Black dots on screen


That's the problem with the GPU, You should sent it back if it's still under warranty.

other option is to fix it yourself by replacing the xclamps.

here's what you need. I've fixed many units for friends.

DS Lite's top screen has horizontal black lines


i found a REALLY easy solution! the most likley problem is that there is dust in the GBA/DS game card slot! it corrupts the connectors (i dont want 2 explain how it gets into the system) so step one: wrap a small peice of tissue around the stylus(make sure DS is turned ON)
step two: LIGHTLY go inside the GBA/DS slot with the tissue wrapped stylus.
step three: shut down DS system and turn on again
problem solved! hope this helps.

PSP black line on bottom of screen


This is definitely a broken LCD display screen. Since it's out of warranty you'll have to pay to have Sony repair it or just buy a new one. Bummer. Sorry to hear that you're having this trouble.

DS Lite has red lines in top screen?


It could also be running fluid from the screen's gel padding. I doubt that, though... It's best to buy or order a replacement screen. It's actually not too expensive and is not too hard to DIY. The problem with that, is it's really easy to accidentally break something while opening up a DS, especially the DS lites. Another problem is, you need a triwing screwdriver to open up the DS, which can only be found online. So, if you don't want to buy anthing online, you should just ask gamestop or something to repair it for you. It'll come at a price though...
