If you're using a game cart in the bottom slot of the DS it is because you are running an older Game Boy Advanced game that does not support dual screens. Pull out all game cartrages and start the DS in it's splash/ setup screen. If one of the screens is black there then one screen is bad. It not worth fixing unless you have a warranty so at that point head to your local store and pick out a sweet new color.

You are going to have to send it so that they can reset your system. Also, it could be that it is working but there is a short to your LCD screen. look around at some companies that fix gameing equipment. I went to www.cherryfusion.com and they fixed my sons DS. he had dropped it and the top screen would not come out. they had to change out the LCD screen.

SOURCE: broken bottom screen

Some of the screws are hidden.
-2 under rubber feet (bottom of console) - just prise the feet off - they just stick back on when refitting.
-1 screw (when the console is upside down) is in the middle of the cartride entry point - small black tri-wing screw.

Failing that check out YouTube - there are lots of videos showing how to take the case apart and put it back together again.

I have replaced the case on my Nitendo ds lite, but now the upper screen shows everything up side down but only when a game is started.


Check the cable is securly in the the socket as far as it will go, if it is not correctly you will have this sort of problem.

I replaced the top lcd screen on my son's Nitendo DS lite and now when I turn it on the bottom screen flashes and shuts off. What is wrong with it?


Hello!

The bottom screen flashes because something is still wrong with the upper lcd

Make sure you didnt put a rip in the upper lcd. The smallest rip will mess it up.

Also, make sure the cable is in completely.. If its off the slightest cm , it'll cause the lower lcd to blink which causes the DSlite to not work

When i turn on my DS the top screen is blank then it turns white and stays like that, i don;t know what's wrong


If your booting to a GBA game, there us a setting in the machine BIOS to tells it to use the top or bottom screen. You can access it by taking out the games and booting the unit.

If your booting a DS game, it should display on both. If not, it is possible a wire has come loose on the display (or the screen went bad).

You can try and check for the wire yourself or take it to a repair shop. If you bought it recently call Nintendo.

Nitendo DS wont boot up


It probably needs a new battery. Does it worked when it's plugged into an electrical outlet?

If it does, the battery can no longer hold a charge and has to be replaced.
