Well if you are able to open the system up there are ribbons that connect into the motherboard a little tricky but easy enough to do once you get the hang of it. if you open the bottom casing of the ds and then look at the ribbons there will be grooves in them showing how far they should go into the connector.

Then just take a small screw drive and pop the connector open be careful the tabs are easy to break/bend then its no fun. but it will connect back into the system just fine.

Then snap the tab back down once you have the ribbons back into the system properly. It does help if you have 2 people to do this just to make sure it dosent slip out before you get the ribbon snaped into place.

But be warned that this can also reck the ribbon if not done right. and loose its connection completely. then you would have to replace the whole screen again.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Why screen has now black horizontal lightings on white images each side?

load the pics.

for example check the Vertical lines on Samsung LED TV
it's not a permanent fix, and if you want to fix it completely then disconnect all the cables to the main board(AV board), clean the contacts then put them back as they were. Secondly, look around all the connectors in that area where you loosened the screws

How to fix problem with screen clicking on BlackBerry Storm

If you're having problems with clicking, like the edges are hard to click, or the screen in general is hard to click, the following is how to remedy it.
  • Torx T6 screw driver
  • Small needle
Steps to follow:
  • Take off back cover
  • Locate red sticker (water detection sticker)
  • There is a t6 screw under the sticker and directly across from it
  • The problem is that sometimes these screws are too tight
  • Start by loosening the exposed screw a tiny bit, then check the clicking on the screen - if this doesn't work, loosen a little more. If the clicking still doesn't work correctly, move on to next step
  • Remove the sticker with the small needle (this will not void your warranty) - loosen the screw as you did with the first screw -
  • Check the clicking to see if it works better - if not loosen screws more
  • Replace the sticker
  • Replace back cover
Your screen should now be clicking better. Thanks

5300 nokia display light not working

Usual cause of this phone is losing the flex connector on the upper board,this may happen when the phone drop off the ground or a force of sliding up/down.

To fix this problem,please follow this method.

1. turn off the phone
2. remove the battery
3. slide up the phone
4. at the back of the upper panel,pill the metal shield with a cutter blade.(it's a little bit sticky because of adhesive.)
5. upon seeing a flex connector,check if it's detach or loosen,gently push that connector until it locks or fit (be careful with the lcd in front panel when pushing that connector,might broke it if pushing over)

Now test if gonna work now.

Otherwise,it can be flex connector or LCD screen need to replace,it is more safe if you bring the phone to a mobile service shop for parts replacement.

Good Luck...

The monitor is not working right it has been just sitting 4 about 2 yrs and the color is all wrong

Hello Lorilkelley, Hi, check first your VGA cable, see if the cable is snug and tight, as you adjust or loosen the cable at the back of your PC look at the monitor and see if the colors go back to normal. if it does, its probably a loose or defective vga cable. BTW, is your VGA cable fixed on the monitor back or there is a connector, if there is a connector like the one on the back of the PC, try to loosen or tighten the connector, see if the colors go back. if the cable is fixed, try to wiggle the end and see if the colors change, if it does you have to live with it.

I bumped my screen now it has ligns running through it almost looks like shatered glass. Is there any way to fix it

Does it look like shattered glass or is it actually shattered? The problem you have mentioned can be possibly caused by loosened connectors between the main AV board and the t-con. It can also be due to loosened LVDS connectors(ribbon cables) that go from the t-con to the screen. My suggestion would be to unplug these connectors from the board and re-plug them. If you want to do it yourself then let me know and I will give you more detailed instructions.

Nikon Coolpix S210 lcd broken - need step by step instructions

Most cameras are not that hard, if you are careful and willing to make notes of where each screw came from.
Be sure to get the correct screwdriver to fit the screws correctly and use enough pressure directly to loosen each screw...this is quite important, because if you strip the screw's head, it can be messy.
Most LCD screens are directly under the back cover, and can be replaced usually, once the back is off, remove three or four screw which will hold the LCD frame on. Once that is loosened, then you can carefully remove the screen and see if you need to remove anything else before loosening the cable plug. Take care here, because there are a few different ways these cables may be connected. Some are simply pushed into a connector. Some have a socket which has locks which must be loosened to remove the cable. These little sliding plug connectors are delicate, so you must take it slow and not rush the job. Some of these fold up to loosen, some simply slide away a bit to loosen the plug lock.
Most anyone who has done any delicate work on anything electronic will understand what I am talking about here.
A repair manual may be able to be downloaded for free, but you may have to be a member (usually free) in order to download manuals. Some may charge a small fee for the pdf file.
Hope it all works okay.

LG Glimmer Touch Screen Working Selectively

Buying an electronic is some time testing your luck, It's could best, good, bad or even worst. As I look at your problem, I remember mine year back. This is the first symptom of LCD going to worn out. Hurry up go to your LG Service center and tell them your problem. If lucky, you don't need to replace your LCD because maybe just the connector loosen. The worst case is, you need to replace your LCD screen which is quite expensive.

Error code

I found the answer on another site and was able to fix my camera myself. E24 means your LCD display has come unplugged. What happens if you rotate the screen too much you tighten up the wire and it pulls the connection out of its socket. There ar 4 screws on hedispla, unscrew ad take th back off the screen. Unwind the screen until the wires loosen up. Replug in the loose connector. Resecure the back
