    I have the same problem. I have a DS Lite. Is that what you have?

    It's getting worse for me, though. It mostly happens after I open the DS, when its already on, just closed. But occasionally it just flickers every 10 minutes or so. Anyone know whats wrong?

Hello there! First of all let me tell you that your nintendo ds can be repaired and it is not trash... what you need is to get the bottom screen to be repaired ....you can do it sending it to the nintendo repair shop or by doing it yourself by following this youtube guide http://www.youtube.com/user/nintendorepair.

Hi , when i turn my Nintendo DSi on the power light comes on but not the screens, they remain blank , what can be done to repair this


I have seen this problem on a couple of DS's.

The most likely problem:

If the screens don't come on or the top screen flashes white right after the power is turned on, the wires connecting the top screen to the bottom have broken or worn down. You would have to take the case apart and splice in new wire to repair it.

Screen goes white on power on and then shuts down power


This is basically due to a faulty screen. Depending on which screen flashes white when you first turn the DS on, this tells you which screen is faulty. If the bottom screen flashes then it is the top screen that is faulty. If the top screen flashes then it is the bottom screen that is faulty. Screens are fairly easy to fit although the top screen is the harder out of the two, you can buy them off of ebay for around £10 and if you google DS screen replacement there are some good guides out there showing you how to do it.

Hope this helps

On my ds the light comes on for two seconds then a white screen appears then it goes off what should i do


Depending on which screen flashes, one of them has died. If the bottom screen flashes then the top screen needs replacing, if the top screen flashes then the bottom screen needs replacing, the easier of the 2.

Hope this helps

My nintendo ds lite won't turn on


This is usually the top screen at fault as the ribbon cable gets damaged when opening/closing especially if it gets sticky, from sticky fingers. Sometimes it's the bottom screen and sometimes it's a corroded motherboard(this needs my expert attention!). But 9/10 it's the topscreen.

My nintendo ds keeps flashing white when i turn it on then go of


The fact the bottom screen flashes and the top doesn't indicates that the top screen needs replaced! Although do not attempt this as a D.I.Y project as its more complex than some think. And the 2 speakers also need to be desoldered and then resoldered to the ribbon on the new top screen and this requires soldering skills. If you stay in the glasgow area you welcome to contact me for repairs.
