The juice has probably reached the circuts in the ds and i dont think there is a way to fix it without taking it apart.

My DS screens don't work right

Hi, if you have 2ds's have you tried the other board, sound like the ribbon cables are definitely not pushed in all the way, wiggle in until the little lugs at the sides touch the white clip, could have faulty clips on the board and you definitely don't want to be changing them.

Nintendo DS Lite screen is not working properly

I leave my DS on the charger all the time with no problems. You are going to get a lot of people telling you this, so be ready.

Anyway, way the DS dropped, stepped on, or had something spilled on it? That could very well be the cause.

Another problem could be the charger. Look and see if the charger is torn, has something on it ( Juice, sticky stuff, or something that really shouldn't be there), and by something on the charger, I mean something on the head of the charger that you plug into the DS. The wire could be torn up and frayed too.

You could also get the DS refurbished. This should correct the problem. Refurbishing is cheaper than buying a new one, refurbishing a DS costs anywhere from $70 to around $90.

Hope it helps~

Nintendo DS Lite Problem

That sounds like your DS lite have a lose circuit part rolling inside so thats why it cant turn on.

You need to open the console, recover the lose part from the inside and resolder it in its place (usually near the power switch, marked as L2). That should fix the problem, if not then you might have blown fuses, lose screens ribbon cables or broken LCD screens. All of these repairs are discussed in other questions here.

A white line cannot be the Touchscreen. It must be the LCD screen under it. Could be a defective screen.

Nintendo ds NEED HELP

My DS touch screen is very light. If you turn look at a particular angle you can still see what is shown on the screen, but other than that, the screen looks white. I have already changed the touch pad and that was not the problem. Any assistance would be appreciated.
