The guys that make the Shock case did a great job putting together a number of slides showing how to modify the case. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157594277451148/

Top scree is flickering

If the top screen flicked once and cut out or is flickering, the cause is most likely a damaged ribbon cable that goes through the ds's hinge. A damaged hinge is the cause of the problem. You can get it repaired for free by nintendo if you still have warranty on it.

Brought a ds lite and new ds shell as the old one had broken hinge.Whilst re routing the black antenna cable broke (gold connection bit came off) i have ordered a new one from ebay.So as this is just for...

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!

Broken top screen (original DS)

Replying to the first post:
If you have broken the ribbon cable, which is highly likely if you have broken the hinge, then the DS will not work. It does not turn on unless there is a connection to both screens. You will need to buy a new ribbon cable for it:
A useful site I found is: www.consoleparts4u.co.uk

Once you replace this then it should work for you.

Repling to th second post:

I would recommend buying a new case for it at least because the ribbon cable will break if left broken due to the strain on it.

The more expensive but easier option is to buy a new one.

Hope this helps,

Mowcius

Ds shell

you are best watching a dismatling video on youtube, here is a good on but sound is foreign: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dHtv9DA94g&eurl=http://www.dsfanboy.com/2006/02/20/dismantle-your-ds-in-13-minutes

A few tips:

Take care with those speakers, the connectors are very sensitive and the wires can easily break.

Take care with the screen ribbon cables and connectors on the board, the two big ribbons have connector that lift up the little ones slide outwards.

the hinge cover has a little screw near the ribbon cable dont forgot to take that off so you can extract the ribbon through the case slot and don't forgot to replace that on your new case before putting it all back together.

on the top screen the ribbon cable may be covered by a bit of sticky foam, just peal that away carefully to access the ribbon.

Watch you dont loose any buttons by tipping the case when dismantling.

In general just take care and dont attempt to turn it on whilst in bits, you could short the screen on the board and blow a fuse.

Good luck...

Broken Hinge

There are plenty of replacement cases available from a popular auction web site, if your proficient with a screwdriver and have a lot of patience then you should be OK. Take great care when refitting the top screen ribbon cable (and taking it apart in the first place), the WIFI arial cable is awfully fiddly as it needs to be threaded under the slot 1 cartridge mechanism and finally take great care refitting the bottom case as plenty of people have reported snapping the plastic part of the power switch when reassembling. I reckon a first attempt should take 1-2 hours so clear the dining room table and don't forget to buy a tri wing driver when you get your replacement case if you haven't already got one. Best of luck.

DS 2 Peices

Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Replacing broken nintendo ds screen

there is a little black bar across copper colored connection wires leading into the tan connection box...lift it up ever so lightly by placing fingernail underneath... see http://www.instructables.com/id/SED515GFA0CVIFN/
warning... I have been replacing cover this evening for 3 hours only to find the right hinge piece that inserts into the lighted power tab doesn't rotate.... IE this was what caused the hinge to break in the first place and this torque/force problem causes the left hinge to break which is posted all over the internet and seems nintendo would have replaced all that for free anyway....I was searching this issue when I found your post SSLong hth

DS power problem

Hi Nerts,

 

These cables or ribbon cable and wire connects directly inside the upper LCD monitor. it is not feasible to replace these wires only.  I suggest you see about getting a replacement upper LCD screen which will give you the wires you need and a new screen to boot. Another porblem is the case itself is very hard to disassemble.  You will come near destroying the case to ge to the lcd.  You must disassemble the unit fully and put the correct curl in the ribbon cable to get it to fit right. In short, the price being what it is for a replacement LCD, and the trouble you have to go though to get this problem fixed, It may not be totally worth repairing. If you dont care and wish to do a repair, then my wishes for luck are with you.
