SOURCE: Nintendo ds lite

Doubtful, though I've not had one with a gimped antenna so I can't say for sure...

Probability is very high that failure to start is related to the ribbon cable(s) not being seated properly into the connector(s). This is a common issue during re-assembly. Often, these cables LOOK like they are re-seated properly - but they are not.

First suspect is the ribbon cable that passes through the hinge. Where it connects into the top board is where I encounter problems often. If this cable is not seated deeply enough into the connector - and perfectly perpendicular - your reassembled DS will NOT boot.

I always temporarily snap everything together and test boot prior to screwing everything back together. Even with care and experience I have to go back to this connector and re-seat the cable about 1 out of every 2 times.

Good luck...

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken

if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.

Nintendo Ds lite not working needs to be repaired

sounds like you both have a lose connection on the circuit board, so easily done, even if one cable is slightly misaligned the ds will not turn on, do they charge o.k?? if so it is a faulty connection
