It can be repaired but you need to take it apart with a triwing screwdriver and need to get a new screeen. http://store.videogamecentral.com/ds-top-lcd.html

Nintendo ds top screen not working


The top screen has failed and the card slot has died they both can be repaired but it will cost a little bit or the other alternative is that you purchase the screen and card slot and repair yourself but this is not an easy feat as they are very easily destroyed to beyond repair I know this personally as I tried to fix my own when this happened and killed it completely to the point I has to buy a new one. The cost of the repairs will be far less than a brand new one that is for sure. I hope this helps.

Hi,
The top screen will need to be replaced. Your only options are to either to send it off for repair or to fix it yourself.

(Original) Nintendo DS (Not Lite or DSi) top screen is all white


If you need the top screen replaced then i would advise sending the console to the manufactuer or to a local gamestop or eb games and see if they can fix it themself because if the top screen is damaged then it might be shorted out

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

Top Screen of DS Lite broken


Replace upper screen and the Upper front bezel.
Or replace the upper screen and the complete DS Lite Housing. You can find them on the well known auction sites. Please be aware that you must know what your are doing. If in doubt, send it to Nintendo or a local Nintendo repair service

Ds lite top screen problem


My ds has the same problem, except it stays white! but only because the cords on the left side of the ds (bust the part where the two light indicators are, power and charging, and slide the top screen to the right, then you should see the cords.) are not connected ore are lose from the central part of the ds. Ask nintendo or somebody who is a whire repairer to connect these wires.
