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,

Regards,

SOURCE: ds lite screen flash white tehm off

its possibly a software issue, babe theres some corrupt data with the os, if it still has a warranty i would recommend sending it in for repair. im pretty sure they only charge 40-50usd for repair otherwise and it would give you a chance to purchase/renew your warranty through them

How to fix white screen in ds lite gei


hi, it may be that the top screen ribbon cable has come unseated from the clasp and may just need undoing the black clip, pulling out the cable and putting it back in but unless you have taken these consoles apart are tricky and delicate. Most probably needs new screen tho to be honest. screens are only about 7.50 but require soldering skills for speakers, a steady hand and patience. google or YouTube replacement top screen ds lite for videos. I have done 100's. I charge between 12-15 to replace.
thx

I have just changed the top screen and now when i turn it on the screen flashes and turns off


Depending on which screen flashes tells you which screen is faulty. If the screen you have just changed flashes then it is the bottom screen that is faulty. However I have known the DS to be rather sensitive when it comes to connections. Take the DS apart again and reinsert the ribbon cables that connect the screens to the motherboard. This will hopefully correct the problem.

Hope this helps.

Red light and screen flashes white


99% sure you have a broken flatcable that is going to the upper screen.
Only solution is to replace the screen (cable is attached to it and cannot be replaced seperate)

My top screen wont work


Your ribbon cable may be damaged or it might have come loose from the board. The LCD might also be bad. Either way the system would have to be taken apart and this is an undertaking on the DS. If it's under warrenty call Nintendo and have them replace it. If not you'll want to find a repair center. I've done these repairs many of times and unless you really know what you're doing with the DS it's easy to break it much worse than it started out. There are plenty of these on ebay where people have simply made it worse.

Broken lcd on ds


Whew, boy. Well, I've never taken one apart before, but why don't you go ask those nice people over at Nintendo for a how-to document. I would guess that you just need to take it apart and stick all the cables attached to the old screen onto the new screen, but I wouldn't want to render the DS useless, so follow my instructions at your own risk.

Hmmm...

Is the battery fully charged? if it is and the problem has just recently occured...has the unit been taken apart? when assembled there is a chance the battery is not making proper contact.

If the unit has not been taken apart....not been knocked or bumped or dropped....either the ribbon cable within the hinge has become damaged through use...OR the motherboard is damaged.

try holding the battery compartment cover and apply a little pressure....does this help? NOT TOO MUCH PRESSURE.

switch on.....move top screen slightly...any change?

Wont turn on


If your DS wont switch on....Is the battery making proper contact with its terminals? has the unit been taken apart? have you dropped it? bumped it?

make sure also the battery is well charged.


If its not the battery and both screens are blank..then probably need replacing...but before you attempt to take your DS apart take plenty more advice from DS users on here and other sites..

good luck
