If you are sure there arent loosen cables then the screen, speakers and sound cables seem to be damaged because a broken hinge or a wrong assembly after a repair so the hinge or some other part is pressing the cables cutting or breaking them.

Check for abnormal bent cables and try to test continuity with a electric meter like a multimeter.

You can also buy a replacement top screen for your DS.

My dsi has no sound at all


It could be either internal speaker damage, internal circuit damabe or problems with the headphone jack. Try plugging in headphones if you have sound then you have no internal circuit damage. Try cleaning the headphone port with a cut off Q-tip. Also sit it in a warm dry place for a few days. If the sound still does not work the speakers may need to be replaced.

My nintendo ds lite as no sound but it works fine with head phones in can you help me please


It works well with the headphones?
Well.. That's odd.
Check the left side of your DS volume.
there's a toggle button that says
- VOL +
======
toggle it rightly,as the volume will get higher. Maybe your headphones can adjust the volume. So either contact www.nintendo.com or call Nintendo 1-800-255-3700. Or if you like your DS with headphones,keep it that way.

No sound on nintendo ds. How do I fix?


The speakers are wired from the ribbon cable that also provides the top screen illumination. That cable gets plenty of abuse by opening & closing the DS. Could be a break/tear in that ribbon cable. Does either speaker work? both are bad? If neither work, it's a rather involved process to fix yourself (soldering, etc). You can mail it away for service. Call Nintendo to get a quote.

Nintendo Ds Sound Problem


This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.

Open the device and look for loosen or unplugged cables in the main bottom board. Usually this dont happen though opening and closing the unit whe it was not assembled correctly may cause the wires and conductors to loosen or even worst to get cut by the moving parts. So as you say nothing else was done with the unit between plays that is the only explanation I can guess from it.

The headset plug is in the bottom main board so no cables are required to get the audio there, though as the speakers are in the top, these require some flexible cables and conductors running throught the hinges to the top part.

Hope to this info to be helpful: How to dismantle an Original Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:
"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

Good Luck...

Sound normal, Screen display super-dark.


I would try it on another tv. although as far as the cable goes, on the inside sound and video runs on different sets of wires, so it really could be either. Just need to test it on another tv.
