    Hi, well im new to this forum, i hope to I can join this community of well-named gamers!!
    I have one question. A friend of mine has one DS who doesnt work the upper screen. Can i change that screen to a DS lite one? there will be problems? I know that ds lite screens offers better resolution and better contrast

    are you asking to put a ds lite top screen on a ds phat's upper body? i don't know the specifics but that sounds like something only a hardcore modder could do

    btw, ds phat and lite have the same resolution, just the lite has a better display

    As Terminator02 said, hard-modding isn't easy. I recommend your friend just send the DS to nintendo or the provider and ask them for a repair. Hopefully, it will cost less than buying a new DS.

    You can just phone in and ask for a refurbished DS. It'll be cheaper than buying a brand new one.
    I think it's your only option, since they stopped repairing original DS's IIRC.
