Hi this is a very common problem with all ds's and phones that flip and slide, the problem is with the ribbon that connects the top screen to the circuit board in the bottom, now every time you open and close the ds this ribbon bends so as it keeps the connection with the screen.

now inside this ribbon is several single strand copper wires and over time these become brittle and then one or two will break, now as this is such a common problem it makes the part cheap to buy and cheap to have fitted, all you need to do is take it into a computer repair shop or some phone shops offer this service as well and ask them to replace this ribbon, they should be able to do it whilst you wait and if not it should be done the next day.

this is a cheap repair to have done so it is worth getting it fixed.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Top screen won't lock


Hi,

The most likely reason for the screen being unstable is that when the shell casing was damaged the top screens ribbon was damaged at the same time.

You can sort both these issues out but it is not a small job, you will need a few specialist tools, a new top screen, basic soldering skills, delicate handling and plenty of patience.

If you are willing to take on this task then everything you need for the job is readily avaliable from ebay.

The stuff you need are:
1x Replacement shell/ housing/ casing for DS lite.
1x Replacement top screen for DS lite.
1x Precision tri-wing screwdriver.
1x Soldering iron (ideally with 1mm tip, but not essential) and solder.
1x Tweezers.
1x Flat tool, i.e. craft knife, flat head screwdriver.
1x Precision cross head screwdriver.

If you click on my name it will take you to my profile page, once there have a look at my guides I have written, you will need "DS lite dismantle process" and "DS lite top screen replacement".

If you require further help or advice then please get back to me and I will do my best to assist you as best I can.

White top screen


The same thing happened to me, If you bust the part where the light for the power and the light for the charging indicator, slide the top screen to the right and you should see a bundle of cords, one of these must be disconnected.
