    Ok, so this is what happened. A year ago, my right hinge broke off but everything worked fine. Now, a year later, my ds' top screen's colour started going purplish-greenish. But if you held it in a certain position it worked fine, colour normal. Yesterday, it stopped working and was completely green no matter where I held it. There are parts of the touchscreen showing up on the top screen as well. This all started when I put in Dragon Quest: Chapters of the Chosen, if that helps. Is there any way I could fix this?

    It is either the cable or the top screen itself, both available from dealextreme.com at reasonable prices. As the hinge was broken probably the ribbon cable. Strip down and replace.

    Man, that sucks. I'm not very handy and was hoping to fix it without stripping it.
