    I recently added new housing to my NDS Lite. When I try to turn it on, however, the green light goes on, and it tries to power up, but the top screen blinks white and the whole thing just shuts off. The ribbon cable isn't damaged, and it's in as far as it can go. The mic and wi-fi wires are in correctly. I've disassembled and re-assembled everything, and this still happens. I can't figure out what's making my DS do this. Does anyone have an idea as to what's wrong? Thanks! [​IMG]

    There is a problem with the bottom screen (or connection) if the top one flickers it is working, if the bottom one doesnt that is where the problem lies. Put in the connector again, if nothing replace the screen

    It's more than likely you ribbon cables aren't connected properly. Check them again, take them out and put them in. If it still doesn't work then your ribbon cable's damaged. Need to get a new screen. [​IMG]
