Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

DS Lite Turns off when moving top screen.

Help! My DS Lite turns off when I move the top screen too close to the touch screen. If the top screen is all the way back, it is not a problem. But even the tiniest twitch on the top screen turns the DS off. And if I turn on the Ds when it is close to the Touch Screen, it screen falshes, then turns off again. So I can't go to sleep mode at all with the Ds without it turning off.

    I am also having this problem and it acts as if there is a short in the screens causing the system to shut down to avoid any significant damage.  The Nintendo tech support does not address this issue and there are no good links out there to sites that specifically deal with this problem.  I would hate to sacrifice what is an otherwise good system simply because I can't get this issue resolved.  I have had the system for 2 years, both screens are free of scratches and the system has been well cared for.  It's just frustrating that after all of the care I have given it that it would still fail me like this and ultimately cost me another $100 minimum to get back into the game!

ITS AN INTERMITTENT CONTACT with the ribbon belt that connects from the main unit to the upper screen , I believe you need to take the DS for an authorized repair shop, but before doing anything , give a call to a tech support at NINTENDO , THEY would gladly help you out and inform you whats the next step , hope this helps , AJ , in case you dont have the LINK, let me give it to you : http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/ ,
hope this helps AJ

When i turn my ds lite on the touch screen blinks and shuts off


either a fuse has gone or the screen is sorting out on the motherboard. check youtube for instructions on how to fix fuses, or if you have had a new screen put some insulation tape on the back of it.
Other possible causes can be a fault with the top screen so investigate tat too. the ribbon cables can tear

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.

NINTENDO DS LITE WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON


Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.

sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

Onceturned on, the green light goes on, the touch screen flashes white, then it all turns off.


You might only have a loosen screen ribbon cable.

If not careful while taking out the top screen ribbon you can damage it causing blank screens and finally the DS wont work.

The solution to a broken top screen ribbon is to replace the whole screen in DS lite or buy the ribbon cable in the DS fat and replace.

If the broken top screen ribbon is caused by broken hinge then you should replace the shell also to avoid other broken screen.
