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

Re: 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

most likely its the top screen ribbon.Because when you open the ds all the way it might push the ribbon in just enough to be read but when not open it cant read the top screen and it will shut down.I have instructions on how to change a top screen you can use them to put the ribbon back in. the only difference is you don't need to unplug the white and black wires.First you need a tri wing screwdriver and a cross screwdriver.You can
get both on ebay.Then their are seven screws four tri wing and three
cross.You will need to pry the back off be very careful.Start on the
side that doesn't have the on off switch and work your way around.Once
you have the back off unscrew the two cross screws that hold the logic
board on.Then unplug the white and black wifi
and mic wires they snap on and off.Then flip the logic board over by
pushing the bottom screen out.On the other side is where the ribbon for
the top screen is.To get the hinge apart their are two more cross
screws in the top left corner take them out that releases the
hinge.very carefully roll the ribbon so you can get it through the
metal ring and the wires pull the wires first.to get the top apart the
four cross screws are above and below the speakers
under those small squares.A needle will get them out easily .Once you
get the screws out then slid the back of the top up 1/8 of an inch then
pull the back off carefully.You need to push the screen out and
unsolder the speaker wires or use new ones.Make sure when putting it
back together you roll the new ribbon the right way look at the old one
to find out .Getting the old ribbon out and the new one in is a little
difficult so take it all apart first and get the wires out then the
ribbon and put the ribbon in first.
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.
The unit need electronic service repair to find burnt parts and might be totally dead just because the battery was inside when wet and that can produce a short circuit.
You still can sell it to use some parts as replacements or buy a known working unit with cracked screens or broken hinge and rebuild. But all of that requires time and some expertise. Look for videos at youtube and broken units in ebay.
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...
Hi, replacing the original nds upper screen is a fairly straight forward procedure, you need to remove the 4 x small plastic plugs located in the corners of upper screen, then remove the 4 x phillips screws, the top outer back part of the case will seperate and you can gain access to the screen. Firstly remove the small screw holding down the right hand pcboard to gain access to the ribbon connectors, release the larger flat connector by hinging the clip up, slide the ribbon out, underneath you will see a tiny connector, gently ease the small clip back towards the ribbon, prising a little each side at a time, remove the ribbon and then you can prise the screen from the case.
