    I am having a very similar problem. I replaced the top screen (on a regaular DS) and when we powered it up the top screen lit up but there was no video. The top screen video actually appeared on the bottom screen with the normal bottom screen video. Reseated all the ribbon cables and still nothing. Any advice.

    My top screen is white when I turn on the unit. My DS is about 14 months old and I have noticed that the top screen lid is not as tight as it was when it was new. It freely "wiggles" about a half-inch when opened to its first or second "clicking" (open) positions. The topscreen would only intermittantly turn white for a while (about five days, game is used a lot every day), then it started to STAY white.

Top LCD's flex cable that passes through right-hand hinge into bottom part of case will be damaged or not properly seated in its connector socket.

Nintendo Ds Lite Top Screen Problem(pls help:( )


It is probably the connectors connecting the screen to the bottom part where the CPU is. My portable Wii screen does the same thing. If you can live with it, your OK, but you might need a new DS. I recommend a DSi!

Ds lite top screen problem


My ds has the same problem, except it stays white! but only because the cords on the left side of the ds (bust the part where the two light indicators are, power and charging, and slide the top screen to the right, then you should see the cords.) are not connected ore are lose from the central part of the ds. Ask nintendo or somebody who is a whire repairer to connect these wires.

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

Looks like you left a loose wire or flexible ribbon cable, open the unit again and be sure the cables are well locked into the connectors, be sure the flexibles are in good conditions and over all check the screens or other metallic parts not to cause a short circuit.

Some metallic parts have electric tape isolations to avoid them to touch the circuit board and fry the DS for example when you press a button amd make pressure over the parts.

Good Luck...
