SOURCE: Display screen on DS Lite

I had this same problem on my Lite earlier this year.  It was still under warranty, so I sent it in to Nintendo repair, who replaced the hinge assembly.  Based on the symptom and the repair, I suspect it's caused by a loose/damaged ribbon cable between the upper screen and the rest of the Lite.

I'd be leery of trying to fix it yourself (I've worked on similar problems in laptops), but if your Lite is out of warranty, you might try one of the third-party repair services.  Depending on whether the ribbon cable is damaged or just loose, they may not even need any replacement parts.

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/ ,

SOURCE: red ds lite screen

When the screen has a red hue there are two possibilities:
The screen is broken or the connector has moved.
The "water" is in fact the liquid crystal diplay that is broken.
Replacing the screen will cost about € 20

Screen flashes white then goes black


Sounds like a ribbon cable to the top screen maybe damaged. Upon startup, the ds does a systems check, any kind of failure e.g. a ribbon cable or a faulty screen would cause the console to shut down again. Presuming everything else works charging etc this is most likely to be the problem.

Screen goes white on power on and then shuts down power


This is basically due to a faulty screen. Depending on which screen flashes white when you first turn the DS on, this tells you which screen is faulty. If the bottom screen flashes then it is the top screen that is faulty. If the top screen flashes then it is the bottom screen that is faulty. Screens are fairly easy to fit although the top screen is the harder out of the two, you can buy them off of ebay for around £10 and if you google DS screen replacement there are some good guides out there showing you how to do it.

Hope this helps

My ds lite won't turn on both fuses are good the top screen was broke so I tried another screen I had that dident work. So I put the old one back on and now the ds wont turn on .The green lite flashes then...


Hi,

It's all to do with the top screen... What happens is that when you turn the DS lite on it performs a quick check on the screens to make sure they are connected properly, if one or both are not connected properly then the unit will shut down.
The flashing of the screen shows you that that particular screen is fine whereas the one that does nothing is not connected properly, either through a loose connection or faulty screen/ ribbon.

Your best bet is to buy a new top screen (I usually get mine from ebay for around £10-£12) and fit it. That should sort out your issue.

Any further problems or questions feel free to message me via my profile page.

My ds will not turn on


Hi,

It sounds like one of you're screens has broken. What you have discribed is generally what happens one either the top or bottom LCD screen has broken.

If it is the top screen the bottom screen will flash for 1/2 a second and the DS turns off.

If it is the bottom screen the DS should still turn on but with no reaction from the screens. (the Ds will shut down immediatley after turning on)

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok


One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.
