Hello,

I posted a thread a few months ago talking about my NDS lite that had a red top screen...well I decided to open it up see if the ribbon was broken or not

The ribbon was hanging but not by much...so anyway now its completely ripped.

Now when I start the ds it doesn't boot normally. Did I just blow the fuse?? or is it just because the ribbon is NOT connected?

Thanks for the input :)

Because the ribbon is not connected. Careful, as a minor short circuit could blow a fuse, or fry the motherboard. This mainly when one of the screens aren't properly connected

alright thanks...guess I'll buy a new screen!

edit: I have seen a video before where the guy would put eletrical tape all over his LCD screen and he was saying that it would prevent shorts and stuff...can't remember where I've seen it but do you guys suggest I do this?

I've done that and works fine..!

Put a some electrical tape right where the lower touchscreen sits (mostly the metal parts where they'd short something) and you're done. Don't put too much as the screen will push the motherboard and buttons will be loose

I would just replace the screen because they are inexpensive to replace.
Also, You won't have to worry having electrical tape in your Nintendo DS Lite. :D

I'm not saying that the electrical tape method wouldn't work or that electrical tape would harm your Nintendo DS Lite.
What I'm saying is that in my opinion the correct way to do the repair is to replace the screen & because it is inexpensive to do you might as well do it right.
