Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

2 Answers

Replacement of all covers.

I have bought a cover set to replace a broken section of my son's DS Lite. I have stripped it all down but can not see how the top screen comes away so that the cables can pass thro the left hinge.

    It took a while for someone to feed back and in the meantime I found a video on youttube that went through the whole process.

    Thanks anyway.

Be very careful when removing the flexible cable, if it becomes damaged then the upper LCD will not work. Also if you manage to get it completely apart and back together correctly be make sure you line up the cable to the silk screen lines next to the cable connector. If you push it in too far then you rish damaging the gold fingers on the connector. Again the upper LCD will not work.

To remove the top screen the back cover actually slides off after removing all the screws from the front, once thats off you can see the ribbon cable coming through the hinge, what you need to do is coil the ribbon cable up into a tight little roll and push it through the hinge it's easier if you pull the two little cables out first. hope this helps

My sons ds lite will not turn on the green light comes on and a white light flickers on bottom screen and thats all, I changed the battery and still no luck. Help! thanks


it's likely that the top screen ribbon cable has either become damaged or loose, the entire top screen will probably need replacing (along with the casing if the hinge is broken).. if you are not confident with technical or fiddley things I wouldnt recommend attempting it yourself.

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken


if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.
Thanks

Ndsl power problem


As Bob (HowlingMad) said, the Ds and Ds Lite will turn off immediately after being turned on if the connection to the top screen is broken.

Check the connections between the screen and Ds, if they look damaged then try replacing the ribbon cable for the top screen (or you may have to replace the whole screen - i'm not sure if it is built together on the Ds Lite). If the connections appear fine then it may be that due to the movement the connector has come out of it's socket/plug (also like Bob said), this is easily fixable if this is the case and would require you to take the casing off your Ds and plug it back in.

Hope this helps

Hi, the problems you describe are indeed related... the cable that carries the data from the lower section (mainboard) to the top screen is also responsible for the sound and the speakers are connected to this cable near the top LCD screen. It sounds like the cable has become damaged and will need replacing which unfortunatley means a new top screen due to the way the cable is connected to the screen. I come across this problem frequently and I charge customers £35 for a replacement screen and fitting.
