    Hi- Ive been repairing DSs for people semi-professionally for a while now but I just got one today that has me totally stumped. The top screen is very faded and looks like a standard top screen repair job. BUT I have tried my replacement LCD screen (which I have tested on a different DSL) and the problem remains but thsi time the image on the top screen is different it appears this time as very black-

    the DS is not usable liek this- any suggestions?

    Ive tried adjusting the pots by the SL1 contact but nothing- ive tried 2 different screens- nothing. Any ideas?

    The connector looks fine by the way...

    all help appreciated!

    maybe the screen isn't getting enough power, i have never heard of this problem before.

    thats what I thought- hence the pots- but no avail!
    it was strange- it was intermittent problem- the strange thing is its not the screen- and it doesnt seem to be a loose connection or a bad plug...

    Never heard of this problem before but check if the ribbon cable is still good,maybe the cable is bad.
