DS Lite Console: My nintendo ds lite top screen is black. I can mo...


If you want to buy a Nintendo screwdriver and work patiently, this is an easy fix.
One of your ribbon cables is being pulled out or is not connecting when you open your DS.
If you go to www.powergamingparts.com you can find manuals to assist you in opening the DS and where to locate the "clips" that you will need to tighten.
If you need any further assistance contact me.

Nintendo ds lite keeps shutting off


you probably have a power shortage when you move the screen. the only way to fix this is to open the ds, make sure everything is in the right place, and put it back together. i cant promise this will work, but it should.

My ds lite images on the top screen flickering.


Open up the DS and then unseat and reseat the ribbon cable that goes to the screen.

Once you do that, turn on the DS and if the screen is still flickering then the screen will need to be replaced.

Here is a tutorial on how to open up the DS and what the ribbon cable looks like:

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Top screen goes opaque white, but looks fine with pressed L button.


Puchigusu,

You have a defective flatcable of the upper screen, or the calble is not correct seated in the connector on the systemboard.
The upper screen connector is on the bottom side of the Left button-switch.

If the flatcable is defective (most likely because of the open-close actions every time the DS Lite is used) you have to replace the complete upper screen (the cable cannot be removed without replacing the whole screen).

First try to reseat the flatcable in the connector. If that is not working, replace the screen (manuals how to open the DS Lite etc etc can be found on the Internet)

DS 2 Peices


Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Conection?


Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo2.gif DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video2.gif in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS2.gif Lite"

And after opening it you can do your work. Make sure the flexible cables connecting the top screen part of your DS are well in place and not broken. Your problem may be only a loosen cable but in case the cable is broken you gonna need a replacement. Be careful not to damage the screen or other sensitive electronic parts on your device and you will be on your way.

Good Luck...

DONT ATTEMPT TO REPLACE THE TOP SCREEN ON THE DS LITE. It is easy to replace it on the original ds, But the ds lite requires you to re-soilder the 4 speaker cables into the top screen's video ribbon cable.
