    Just bought PS3, and have those same purple lines. happens and games AND Blu-Ray DVD. Does NOT happen on TV alone, so I don't think it's the TV. Would love to hear any suggestions on this.
    Also is there a phone # for support where you can actually speak to a person?

I think that line is from your TV set not the console.

Potentially dead Nintendo DS lite LCD screen. (bottom)


Hey, I can help you.


Yes, the Bottom LCD is dead. You will have to exchange it.

Below I have two links you should follow through. One to purchase a bottom LCD for a very cheap price and the other will show you how to replace the bottom LCD.


REMEMBER.. To place a plastic pad under the bottom lcd so it doesn't ground out the board. Forgetting to do this could potentially blow a fuse and you will have to replace those!!

There is a line on my DS


The pixels on the screen are starting to go bad which is why you are having lines starting to show up, the screen needs to be replaced to fix the problem.

Black Lines and dots on my screen


I've never heard of something like this, but I might be able to help. You may already know this, but when a magnet or a speaker is close to a television, the screen may develop a purple or blue spot. Look around your TV for: magnets, speakers, phones and even headphones. If you find anything like this laying around your TV, remove them immediately! As they can leave permanent damage to your TV.

If possible, try hooking your Wii up to another TV and see if you get the same problem. If so, then I'm not quite sure what to do... Sorry, Guess I wasn't much help, huh...? ^-^;

Nintendo DS bottom display screen


Hi I have a problem with my bottom screen as well. I was replacing the case as the hinge was broken. When i was putting it back together i noticed a slight tear in the ribbon cable which is attached to the board and the bottom screen.
When I turned it on I found I had poor colour and contrast in the bottom screen however the top screen was fine.
Where this ribbon cable is attached to the board there is two small cables attached to the board beneath it, maybe one of these has come away and needs repositioning or your bottom screen needs replacing.Try this site for diy tipshttp://site.powergamingparts.com

DS Lite has red lines in top screen?


It could also be running fluid from the screen's gel padding. I doubt that, though... It's best to buy or order a replacement screen. It's actually not too expensive and is not too hard to DIY. The problem with that, is it's really easy to accidentally break something while opening up a DS, especially the DS lites. Another problem is, you need a triwing screwdriver to open up the DS, which can only be found online. So, if you don't want to buy anthing online, you should just ask gamestop or something to repair it for you. It'll come at a price though...
