Broken Touch Screen

Someone knocked my son's DS out of his hands and it hit the floor. Now the touch screen is completely blank. Is this fixable or is he out of luck? Thanks!

If the warranty is out then you could buy a new touch screen from eBay and fit it yourself if you're technically compitent, just be careful with the touchscreen ribbon cable and when refitting the plastic for the power switch as if fitted incorrectly will break the power switch.

What is wrong with my display, and can it be fixed?

Hi Sheila, it sounds like a bad connection, affected by the system heating up. Take it to someone who can open it up and check all connections, it should be fixable. Good luck.

Bottom 'touch' screen not working since son dropped console on pavement from car. If I randomly press the screen, it does start up the console, but only the top screen shows anything, so is useless...

Sounds like both your touch screen and bottom LCD screen are broken, but your back light still works. That is good news, because you can simply buy a kit to replace the LCD screen, the touch screen (two separate kits), and repair the console easily.

Slight damage by impact

If you have a warranty send it to Nintendo to fix it.They'll might replace the screen.If there unable to fix it or don't have a warranty just buy a new one.(PS.The games he'd play on the old ds dosen't save the games on it.It saves on the DS game card.)Hope I could help.

My sons ds lite won't turn on - the screen flashes

hey there Mike to me it sounds like one of the ribbons inside became loose or there is a blown fuse in your unit both are fixable you can check the ribbons and also the fuse can be bridged as well if your unit is under warrenty please contact nintendo about this and get a RMA for the unit if it is not under warrenty then there is two solutions to this either get a repair tech to look at it "can be found in the fixya repair directory" or we can work it out together if you need to know the steps required to fix the unit.

Nintendo DS lite - dropped

Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.

Dark screens

No.. most likely the ribbon cable that connects the lcd screen to the rest of the ds has been damaged or knocked loose. Or the circuit board somewhere has been cracked or damaged, affecting the circuitry that sends a signal to the lcd screen.

Is it under warranty? You can maybe send it back to Ninendo for repair. Or open it and attempt to repair it yourself. Otherewise I'm afraid the DS is just broken...

Bottom screen

Sounds like the screen is broken. It may be fixable, but you're likely better off buying a new DS.
