    So, while I was fixing my cousins DS Lite (which I posted before in another thread), I noticed that the upper screen ribbon cable had been ripped, do you guys know of any place that has the DS Lite top screen for sale for cheap? I don't care if it's used or new, as long as it works... I tried googling but most stores that have them are either too expensive, or don't export them to Europe.

    I wouldn't get that one. It had yeallowish picture and MANY dead pixels. Also images had shadows when something was moving.
    After that i got this: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/genuine-nintendo-upper-tft-lcd-screen-module-for-nds-lite-26585
    It isn't genuine as it says but at least it's almost as good as genuine.

    if you have to fix the top screen, then you have tu unsolder the speaker cables and then solder them to the new top screen. Its not to bad.
