Hi,

This is usually caused by an internal component becoming loose. It is usually either the wifi board of the L2 component.

Firstly I must say that if your DS lite is under warranty that you should send it off for repair, secondly if you are unwilling to do "DIY" on it that you find a reputable repair service (there are plenty of good ones on ebay).

If you wish to have a go at repairing it yourself then you willneed a few tools, check out my profile page (click on my name) and see the "DS lite dismantle process" guide.

Try disconnecting the wi-fi board and then placing it back on the motherboard and if that doesnt work try resoldering the L2 component. (you may find that the DS lite rattles when shaken and if this is the case then chances are the L2 component has come away from the motherboard)

Please get back to me if you need any further help or advice.

Regards,

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,

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this 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.

Ds lite top screen problem


My ds has the same problem, except it stays white! but only because the cords on the left side of the ds (bust the part where the two light indicators are, power and charging, and slide the top screen to the right, then you should see the cords.) are not connected ore are lose from the central part of the ds. Ask nintendo or somebody who is a whire repairer to connect these wires.
