    I have a DSL that won't turn on. The top screen flashes and then it shuts off immediately. The bottom screen gives nothing at all.

    I replaced the bottom screen but it still won't work. I've even tested the original bottom screen in another dsl and it works fine, so what could be wrong? Can it be fixed? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Most likely your bottom screen's ribbon wasn't properly inserted

    Well from how your DS is acting it indicates that your bottom screen isn't getting the nessecary contact or one of your fuses is blown.

    Ok, the F1 and F2 fuses are fine. The 3 bottoms screens I've tried are all fine. The original bottom screen is fine. It seems like it's a problem with the mainboard. Is there a fuse associated with the bottom screen that I haven't checked?

    Well I don't know what to tell you, but try cleaning the connector a bit maybe it's not receiving the necessary contact.

    Then your pretty much out of luck, sounds like your board is damaged.
