Unfortunately it's not possible really unless you wanna take apart your DS and buy a new screen and solder it in which I wouldn't know how to do any ways and I'm pretty sure it would be more cost effective to just buy a new one or if possible return it for a new one. Also try calling Nintendo they just might repair it but I don't think so.
Sorry and good luck

The Top and the bottom of the DS are disconnected. But it still works, and the top screen has gone blank.

Uh, oh. You gonna have to buy a new casing for your DS and possibly a new top screen LCD. It is not that expensive compared to the lower screen, but it is very complicated to assemble it yourself so it is very advisable to bring it to a pro.

Hi my top screen on ds is blank

Your screen may be blank due to many problems. One could be that your game itself is not working correctly. Another could be that your DS is beginning to malfunction, and you will have to take it into a shop to get it fixed. One thing that I suggest, is that you contact Nintendo with your problem, because they are usually pretty nice, and could possibly correct the problem with ease.

Nintendo Ds Lite Top Screen Problem(pls help:( )

It is probably the connectors connecting the screen to the bottom part where the CPU is. My portable Wii screen does the same thing. If you can live with it, your OK, but you might need a new DS. I recommend a DSi!

Touch screen doesn't light up

Your problem is with the LCD behind the touch screen. The bottom scren on your DS is actually two screens. An LCD and a touch screen on top of it. Either your cable has come loose inside the DS or the LCD is possibly bad. This can be fixed.

The other option is that the electronics feeding the LCD have gone bad in which case you might as well buy a new DS. But check the screen first.

If the DS is under a year old you can send it to Nintendo for free repair.
