DS Help :(

I'm having trouble with my Nintendo DS. Whenever I turn it on, the top screen plays the usual animation of the two screens coming together to form the "o" in "Nintendo", but stops halfway and turns grey. Then. the whole system freezes.

Help please ;__;

Remove the game cartridge and try it again. During the boot sequence is when the DS tries to activate the port and check of it is going to load a game from there, or use the internal sequence and load the menu.

When i turn on my ds lite my top screen is solid


Yes, this is a fairly easy problem to fix.

There are a few things that could have happened, the most likely thatone of you cable clips is loose, and when you open it fully, it pullsit out just enough so that the connection is lost.

Your going toneed to open your DS, (the forms at www.powergamingparts.com are thebest forms to find these instructions) then just disable your clip, andreinsert it, and then close the clip, and put you DS back together.Just ask if you need any additional help.

My nintendo lite wont turn on-the green lite is on but thats all-


Which LCD is blinking?

If your top screen is blinking before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the bottom screen.

If the bottom screen blinks before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the top screen.


Can you confirm?

Nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?


When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu.
One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.

Action Replay Error


I suggest that you ask someone that has an action replay and ask if he had the same problem or just buy a new one.

Nintendo DS Lite Top Screen -Stopped workign completely


I have a solution! I am a mechanical engineering student at Purdue. My little brother spilled water on his DS lite and the screens had little weird warbly spots on it, but it still worked. He asked me if I could fix it.
I bought replacement screens for it and went to work tearing it apart. Once I got the screens replaced, I put it back together and tried it. It worked perfectly, but then something happened and it stopped altogether. After that, when I would slide the power switch on, the light blinked on and the bottom screen turned on. Then, the unit quickly powered-off and that was the end of it.
After a lot of research I found what the problem was. It was discovered that a lot of DSs were "Bricking," or stopped working, same problems as you guys have. You need to reroute some sections of the motherboard to bypass defunct safety mechanisms. If you would like more information, please email me at charlyoak@msn.com. As each case can vary. I have repaired a large number of DSs and DS lites. Chances are, I can help you too!

Nintendo DS Top Screen color is faint.


It's very possible that you didn't remove the protective film that the top screens almost always come packaged with. If that's not the case it might just be a loose connection, but that's doubtful, or a lesser quality screen.
