If your still looking for good instructions for replacing a DS Lite case give this one a go . I found it very helpful , when my nieces hinge broke and the top screen ribbon cable got damaged and all it did was go green at power up for a quick moment and the bottom screen flashed and it died.
When you come to replacing the back of the bottom case sellotape is very helpful .Not big bits but enough to hold the volume and power switch covers from the outside after fitting them inside the case . They are easier to line up with the switches on the board inside if they don't move .Be good if they clipped into place .
The Left and Right rear buttons also need a bit of tape to hold them in place cos if they move the little spring will come unclipped .Several times I had nearly got the case back on and I heard a ping noise button still works just not too springy. It seems the small contact switch the button connects with only needs only a small amount of pressure to connect and it pops back knocking the button back .
One more thing don't forget to gently ease the casing over the powerswitch and volume switch .The case won't go over them without help , quite a few people end up snapping the switch of the board.

That it Good Luck

Take your back case off and check your Digitizer connection if its connected as it has happen a bunch of time when repairing DS, its located next to your right bumper.

Ds lite top screen

Yes its fixable but it depends on what has broken.
There are two possibilities the small barrel hinge has broken, this is just a case of fitting a new one by opening the case, unscrew the light and gently pulling the top of the case away till you can change the barrel hinge.
The other one is the case has broken and is not holding the barrel hinge, can bodge it with some glue sometimes but most often you need a new case.

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one

you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Hi Mance, I can Repair this, but if you want to fix it yourself, you can get the parts you need from ebay. The Playstation Clinic repairs DS lites as well as other videop game systems. The replacement shell case is quite expensive, like near $40. LCD Screens are not so bad, at under $20 each. if you would like for me to repair you DS lite, contact me at
