The blow to the ds has broken the top screen, it will need to be replaced, you can buy these on ebay, for about ?12, ensure you buy the correct screen, if your console is a normal ds, ds-lite or dsi they all have different screens connections. There are good videos on youtube on how to do this, it maybe worth having a go at changing it yourself.

White Bottom Screen

The bottom screen is fiddly to replace, but easier than the top one lol. Get a cheap screen off Ebay/DealExtreme and DIY - DIY guides are on YouTube. Specialist tool needed is a tri-wing driver.

White screen

Which screen is white? I'm assuming it's your top screen. Has there been any drops lately? Any excessive bending of the hinges? If so, your cable has gone bad and its time to have your top lcd replaced.

Look around online to find out how to replace this yourself, or I would recommend a shop.. Since you will have to solder the speakers from the old one to the new one.

Screen goes white

If it is the top screen that is going white, then it may have been dropped? You can try sending back to the supplier, but if the realise it has been dropped, they may charge you for the repair.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white

if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie
