NDS Lite will not turn on

Hiya
I have got a replacement top screen off ebay to replace on a friends NDS lite. When I took it apart I realised that the speakers had to be soldered back onto the new screen and did not have a solder iron. I put it back togeather but when I turned it on the power came on but no bottom screen. Again I took it apart and back again. This time it turned on for a sec, bottom screen flashed white then off. Apart again and now the NDS power light comes on for 2 secs then it goes off. The DS charges fine but same problem. I want to get it back to the way it was before proceeding with the replacement of the top screen. I have changed screens in PSPs and Mobile phones but these DS seem a bit more tricky. Any advice would be grateful

Thanks
Smiley

I hear about the ribbon cable not being inserted wel.
Lots of people had it put in place, looking ok but no action from the ds. I suggest to reinsert the ribon cables, i heard its quite tricky with the ds...

SOURCE: NDS powers on then back off

i think you have answered that question yourself but what i would do, find a game repaireshop near by, and they will repair anything to do with game consoles, it should cost too much either, so its either them or the trash or try your pot look, learn a bit more and you might probably be able to fix it yourself, dont give up just yet, believe in yourself and concentrate

Ds lite screen flash white tehm off

Hi,

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.

It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.

The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.

My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.

This should solve your issue.

If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.

Hope this helps,

NDS lite has the power(green lite flashes), but screens wont lit

Hi,

When you switch the DS lite on you should notice that one of the screens flashes... if thats correct then the screen that doesn't flash is the one that will need replacing which, I would assume is the upper screen as judging by what you say has a damaged ribbon.

Broken nds ribbon cable

Yes, this can be fixed. You will need to replace the top LCD screen of the NDS, as the cable attaches directly to it. The speakers will need to be soldered to the new top LCD screen, as the top replacement screens usually do not come with speakers attached to it.

Touch screen, and not charging

you should just replace it the screen is about75-85 $ and if you do happen to do that you would have to send it in you might as well goto gamestop eb games or game crazy and pick a used one up for about the same amount of cash

Ds not lite

Replace the connector cord between two screens. You can buy new ones from DX Deal extreme! Carefully remove through hinge and attach securely.

Be careful not to break the fine wires connecting. Have to twist the connector cord in the correct way to make it go through hinge without damaging.

Good luck cos it is a fiddly job.
