Nintendo DS lite - dropped

My son dropped his DS lite on our tile floor and now the bottom screen is white with vertical colored lines. The top screen is fine and games still work, but you can't really play without the bottom screen. Is it fixable or is it garbage?

    By the way, he got it in December of 2006 so it is not under warranty any longer.

Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.

White Bottom Screen


The bottom screen is fiddly to replace, but easier than the top one lol. Get a cheap screen off Ebay/DealExtreme and DIY - DIY guides are on YouTube. Specialist tool needed is a tri-wing driver.

Bottom touch screen has vertical lines all over it


This is a common problem amongst DS lites. It won't go away but it doesn't affect anything so just ignore it.

Nintendo DS lite bottom screen is white.


Sounds like the screen is broke. Before you change the screen you may want to have a look at where the LCD ribbon connects to the motherboard it may be loose. It would be worth while opening the DS and disconnecting and then reconnecting this ribbon to see if it solves the problem before ordering a new ds screen.

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
