Question about Nintendo DS Console

DS Lite's top screen has horizontal black lines

The lines appeared when I was trying to fix a problem with my Lite's L-button. I had a look, cleared any dust off, and closed it up. When I turn it on, there are black lines allover the screen. Or at least, that''s what it looks like. It's affecting the bottom screen too, as the bottom screen's flickering a little too, but thescreen's still clear. The odd thing is, closing the Lite and opening it will cause the top screen to become clear for a split second, and then gets covered with lines. It's not a major problem (most of my games use either the bottom screen or aren't too heavily burdened but the top screen) but I want to know if it's fixable, and how much it'll cost to fix. Any help appreciated.

    My daughter's DS Lite has small vertical blue lines on the top screen. They are not consistent and as she puts it they can "heal up" or be in different positions on different days????????

I found a REALLY easy solution! the most likley problem is that there is dust in the GBA/DS game card slot! it corrupts the connectors (i dont want 2 explain how it gets into the system) so step one: wrap a small peice of tissue around the stylus(make sure DS is turned ON)
step two: LIGHTLY go inside the GBA/DS slot with the tissue wrapped stylus.
step three: shut down DS system and turn on again
problem solved! hope this helps.

You have probably just disrupted the connector for the top screen, this would explain the black lines. This would also affect the bottom screen if two connectors were wrongly aligned causing power to flow through the wrong connectors. The screen being ok for a couple of seconds after you open the lid i cannot be sure why it does that but when i acquired a broken Ds the screen did that but then I replaced the ribbon cable and it was fine. You can buy the parts you would need (screwdriver and ribbon cable) from: www.consoleparts4u.co.uk

Hope this helps

The dual flush cistern does not empty when the buttons are depressed. They have to be held down to clear the toilet bowl. How can I fix this?


cisterns never completely empty as the setting of the mechanism to close the valve is activated when it gets heavier than the water supporting it
try allowing more water into the cistern on a fill by adjusting the water level control

Was dusting monitor and computer area and now monitor won't come on. Have checked all connections.


I've experienced similar problems and the power button gets dust in it and it stops working. Try 'flicking' the power button to see if it clears it, that's what I do.
hold the power button firmly closed then suddenly release it - I use the edge of my nail to hold it closed.

The error message is due to the lens issue. the lens might have stuck due to moisture condensation or dust. It may require service to resolve the issue.
If you wish to resolve it yourself, you may use a soft cloth to clear the dust by manually pulling out the lens part..
If it doen't help, it may require opening the Camera
