By putting the case together you've short circuit the black wire with the powerconnector. Open the bottom case and check the wire. Check Fuses F1 and F2. 99,9% change that one of them is blown out. Replacements can be found on the Internet

Ds lite comes on the top screen flashes then it switches off


It could also be a bad top screen due to a bad ribbon cable. If your hinge is cracked it could cause damage to the ribbon cable that passes through it, this shorts out the top screen and will shut the DS down

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off


Hi,

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.

It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.

The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.

My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.

This should solve your issue.

If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

My ds will not turn on


Hi,

It sounds like one of you're screens has broken. What you have discribed is generally what happens one either the top or bottom LCD screen has broken.

If it is the top screen the bottom screen will flash for 1/2 a second and the DS turns off.

If it is the bottom screen the DS should still turn on but with no reaction from the screens. (the Ds will shut down immediatley after turning on)

Is it possible for the DS to work without the top screen...


technically no as you need both screens to be plugged in but ive heard that you can get a link cable to link both screens but haven't actually tried it myself so cant be sure it will work.

Flashing bottom screen (Nintendo DS Lite)


You need to check the top screen ribbon is fully inserted into to place on the board. A green light and flash of the screen within a second means ribbon not connecting right

My Nintendo ds goes on them off


well, both of you have a broken fuse, and kgould3 has a broken hinge and screen.

1. well, the it is fairly easy to fix a broken hinge, and the screen is a bit tricky, but www.powergamingparts.com has awesome (free) repair guides that are easy to follow and with a little time and patience you can fix that in a jiffy (they even sell everything you need)

2. the fuses, on the other hand are really difficult.
a. you might just want to sell it on ebay and people make a living off fixing and reselling the product
b. if you really want to fix it, then you are going to need to resolder the F1 or F2 or both fuses

if you guys want info on it, just notify me and i will give you the details
