When i turn on my DS the top screen is blank then it turns white and stays like that, i don;t know what's wrong


If your booting to a GBA game, there us a setting in the machine BIOS to tells it to use the top or bottom screen. You can access it by taking out the games and booting the unit.

If your booting a DS game, it should display on both. If not, it is possible a wire has come loose on the display (or the screen went bad).

You can try and check for the wire yourself or take it to a repair shop. If you bought it recently call Nintendo.

Ds lite charge, but green lite will not come on


You have damaged the L2 fuse just below the power button. It is vary delicate and easy to knock of off its placement despite being soldered in.

Double check this fuse to make sure it is still in place and soldered to the contacts on both sides of the fuse.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen


The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from http://wiinewz.com/forums/nds-general-discussion/72805-ds-top-screen-white-blank.html this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps

My daughter's nintendo ds has a frozen screen even though we tried to recalibrate in the usual way


hi I'm Adriana,
Here is what you can do, if your screen is completely white on both top and bottom just close it and let it die when you see the the green or blue lite is red let it die then after maybe 2 days you can recharge it with the dsi or ds lite charger. I advise you that if this process does not work take it to a game store and trade it in for another ds
Thank you i hope this information is helpful

Ds Lite bottom screen flashes then shuts down


Not necessarily. When the cable to my top screen became partially torn, it prevented the DS from powering up. Instead, the green light briefly lit up and then went out and the machine stayed off. I can only presume that feedback is required from the screen. As for the bottom screen, I'm unsure of how the DS behaves when the screen or cable is damaged.

Hope this helps.

Try cleaning the game. If you look at it in the light you may find it has some scratches or something. You see my brother has that! Love Tamsin

Cant play any game


Is this the top screen or the bottom screen? The top isn't meant to react to the stylus.

Non-working top screen


If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this is normal.
