    Hi guys...
    So I ordered with my SuperCard a replacement DS Shell (from here) and after I removed all the DS Parts from the old shell, I began applying it to the new one. For some unknown reason, the ribbon cable that goes from the mainboard of the DS to the Top screen got a very very little cut. But, that cut was enough to stop my DS from working. When I now turn on my DS, both screens turn on for a few moments, the top black(not working apprently), and the bottom fades from black to white(FlashME I guess) and then turns blue, and then the DS turn off. So now I no more have a working DS. I was wondering if there was some way to fix this cut, in any way possible.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Perhaps some computer repair shop might know how to repair a ribbon cable?

    I have a website of someone that will be able to tell you if it can be fixed. I know he has parts but you'd have to email him for more details.

    I'll pm it to you EC. [​IMG]
