Replacing the upper screen is by far the hardest to fix, it requires you to feed the LCD ribbon through a hole ¼” wide, you also need to be able to desolder and resolder the speakers on the new LCD ribbon, then feed the new ribbon back through the hole, it’s not that easy.

Top screen won't lock


The solution depends on whether the damage is to the case or the hinge shaft. Either way this repair should not be attempted if you are not comfortable working with very small electronic devices. If only the hinge shaft is damaged you can get a replacement from here http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15853

If your case is damaged you may want to replace both the case and the hinge. Here is an example of a replacement case. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8696

This YouTube video shows the process of replacing the case. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_sCoHGIpU0&feature=related

As I said it is a very intensive and delicate process but as long as you move slowly and have a steady hand it is doable by someone with basic electronics skills.

My DS lite is broken, what should I do?


Usually if you can hear something rattle after being dropped, then the small square capacitor located on the motherboard right beside the power switch has probably come off. It is marked on the board L2. Simply resolder this capacitor and it should work fine. If the capacitor is broken a new on can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00. Simply look for key words "DS Lite L2" they also have pictures on the auctions further showing you where it is located

Top screen has become feint and unreadable, this happened during use and not as a result of a n impact


over time this can happen your top screen has started to go. you can either fix it yourself by buying a new top screen or having someone service it for you.

if you want to tackle it by yourself then we would be more then happy to share the steps involved in doing so.

Green screen


There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.

Top screen flickers


Have you dropped the console? has it been knocked? either the game card is faulty, or the screen is damaged in some way. Do not try to fix the screen by yourself, however, get someone who knows exactly what they're doing.
