Hi guys, I guess I can fairly say I've been lurking around these forums for a while but have never posted - I usually just take the knowledge I can glean and run with it, but now that I've encountered a specific issue that I can't find any further information on, I decided to post and pick some brains. I got a used 3DS for $30 from a guy on craigslist that works great - the only issue I had with it was that the bottom touchscreen was scratched to bejeezus and back. It honestly looked like the kid used a piece of gravel instead of a stylus. It still worked, unbelievably, but I knew I wanted to replace the screen. So I did some research, saw what it would cost to get someone else to do it, and decided to go ahead and replace it myself after acquiring the parts. Yesterday I went ahead and disassembled the 3DS with help from an ifixit guide and everything went fairly smoothly other than having a rough time dealing with ribbon cables on the reassembly. Finally, when it was all back together, I switched it on and everything works fine except for the bottom LCD screen display. The thing is, it actually works - it registers when I touch different parts and opens up software and, since I know where some of those software buttons are, I can navigate it to a point but still... it's just a dark screen. So here's my question: I'm thinking maybe one of the ribbon cables is loose that attaches the bottom screen to the motherboard, but I'm not quite sure which one. I feel like it only has to be one of them since the touchscreen itself is working and it is getting power so the power and data must be fine, and probably just the display cable? Does anyone know which one is the display cable or have any light they can shed on this? Also, though the screen fits great and seems to work fine, I'm wondering if there might be any issue with me using this replacement screen and the 3DS not registering it in the same way it did the old screen that actually came with the system? I'm guessing this wouldn't be the issue, but just wanted to cover all the bases. All in all, any thoughts, comments, suggestions, or advice are appreciated.
