I recieved my ds lite from a friend he had it for years and when i got it the top screen was dangling by the copper ribbon. I had for like 3 weeks and then my cat knocked it off a dresser and the top...


Hello there! i think your nintendo ds still can't be fixed ....you can fix it yourself if you have some soldering skills but if you don't then you can hand your nintendo ds lite in to the professionals to work on at the nintendo repair shop

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.

Damage on the back of my ds


Your cable is destroyed. It will have to be repaired. Look online for VIDEOS on how to replace the top lcd. It requires rolling of the top lcd to fit into a small hole and I've torn a number of those my first time. Good thing it wasn't my money I was spending ;)


Look on Amazon and you can get top lcds for under $20.00!

Any more questions, good luck

My original nintendo DS has little white lines in the top screen!


Well, if the lines stay on the screen even when the DS is turned off, it means the LCD screen is broken, thus the crystals are flowing and blotching. This means the screen must be repaired, however you don't have to buy a new one.

Nintendo has a page about original DS repairs Here. They also offer certain warranties, I'd see if one applies to your situation. (They also have a more broad repair page Here.)

If you feel like doing the repair yourself, it is apparently very easy and costs about $40 to replace the screen. There are many different repair tutorials online. (I just did a Google search for "DS top screen repairs") Here is one of those sites.

I hope this was of assistance.

Discoloration on Nintendo DS screen


It might be able to be repaired but the reason that happened was because of a magnet or from him pressing really hard down on the screen

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

Top Screen has turned white


It can be repaired but you need to take it apart with a triwing screwdriver and need to get a new screeen. http://store.videogamecentral.com/ds-top-lcd.html
