Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

I have replaced the hinge on my daughters DS Lite and put it all back together (didn't realise it would be quite so in depth!). I've tried charging it from the car (as have lost the indoor charger) and tried turning it on and the lights come on but the screen just flashes and goes off again. Any ideas - do I have a loose connection inside or have I done some major damage? I was extremely careful! Thanks

It sounds like the connections at the hinge either are damaged or are not reconnected properly. You might try taking it apart again to make sure you didn't miss a connection, and if that doesn't work I'd contact Nintendo or a third-party repair center to see about getting it repaired professionally.

Hi,
If you yourself have replace it, I think you damage the upper LCD ribbon connector. I have repaired a lot of DS, a broken hinge usually the cause of that problem( ribbon connector cut off ).
Check the upper LCD if that model have a seperate ribbon connector, luckily you could buy the ribbon only, if not, BAD LUCK, you have to buy a new upper LCD.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

DS Lite Completely crashed


Some R4 cards were known to "brick" DS's. Not sure if they were defective or made that way. So it looks like your DS is dead. Unfortunately, this is the risk you take when you use 3rd party hardware.

Bluesbelle,

Are we talking here about a DS or a DS Lite?

Ndsl power problem


As Bob (HowlingMad) said, the Ds and Ds Lite will turn off immediately after being turned on if the connection to the top screen is broken.

Check the connections between the screen and Ds, if they look damaged then try replacing the ribbon cable for the top screen (or you may have to replace the whole screen - i'm not sure if it is built together on the Ds Lite). If the connections appear fine then it may be that due to the movement the connector has come out of it's socket/plug (also like Bob said), this is easily fixable if this is the case and would require you to take the casing off your Ds and plug it back in.

Hope this helps

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side


The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!
