If you have the correct screw drivers, open up the bottom if you can see the ending of the ribbon on the motherboard, slide a "regular" screw driver under the clasp and gently lift up. this will free the ribbon from the mother board. i believe the clasp is black. but remember be gentle and try not to scrape the ribbon too badly.

sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

How to repair broken hinge of my Verizon LG Vx8350


I was able to take apart a VX8350 I have with a broken screen. I don't see any way to replace just the hinges with replacing the whole top part of the phone including the screen. The ribbon cable from the screen runs through the hinge part into the main assembly of the phone. It appears the cable can't be removed without cutting it.

There is but you must open the system and take it ALL apart then reconnect it!
UNLESS you pulled it from the shell.. There is the led lights which are connected to the shell if you actually tore the ribbon then get a new ribbon and shell on ebay 10$ ish!

If not tear it all apart and re-insert the ribbon to the bottom unit which holds the laser. If you need pictures of what I am talking about let me know as it is a complicated process which took me a full hr when the system first came out!

To remove the top external casing first you have to separate the top part from the bottom part of the DS by dissasembling the bottom part and unplugging the top screen ribbon and the white and black wires, then slide these cables through the hinge hole to separate the parts.

Then you must take out the 4 screws under the cover pads in the screen side, and slide the screen side from the external side so the screen side should move like 5mm from the external side and then you would be able to separate both and see the screen, mic and speakers.

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.
