Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Random White Top Screen

I've left my DS alone for about a week and just set it down on my nightstand. However, when I picked it up to play it recently, the top screen was white. I am almost positive that it wasn't hit by water or stepped on, or dropped.

When I turn my Nintendo DS Lite on, the touch screen works fine but the top screen just goes plain white. I've tried turning it on and off but that didn't work. The screen is just white and that...


sounds like It is broken.
unless you get the startup screen beefore it goes out white i'd say something was damaged in the screen or the wiring connecting the screen to the unit.

If you see any lines on it, It was most likely over extended open and the wires inside have become frayed or damaged. If you try fully opening the top screen and push inward you may have temporary relief of this issue. could try puling out also but either way this would just be to test if thats the issue. dont pull or puch to hard as you could damage the unit further.

if it is a pure white screen the screen may have cracked or had something spilled on it which would damage the screen beyond use.

Either way, the system is damaged and needs to be replaced or repaired. Price wise it is more advisable to just buy a new unit rather then purchase parts and repair it.

Ds top screen turns white then shuts off.


Hi,
the cables need to be inserted Fully And squarely/evenly.
Also ensure The Tabs are locked Down correctly.
If none of this Works, you may have a blown On-Board Fuse.
I believe these Are Known As F1 And F2.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

Movie doesn't play on NDS top screen


Dear person,
Maybe you should get a new DS.When the screen goes blank that means it's old and wants to be left alone.

Ds lite top screen problem


My ds has the same problem, except it stays white! but only because the cords on the left side of the ds (bust the part where the two light indicators are, power and charging, and slide the top screen to the right, then you should see the cords.) are not connected ore are lose from the central part of the ds. Ask nintendo or somebody who is a whire repairer to connect these wires.

Top Screen of DS has faded to white


if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo. thanks, connie
