    Hi, I have a problem with my DS and I wanted a "diagnosis" before I tried to fix it myself. When I play a game, any game, my top screen has a red and sometimes blue hue over it, placing pressure over the top right side of the bottom of the DS temporarily fixes this and sometimes applying pressure to the bottom right side of the top screen fixes it.

    I have been told that my connector may be loose, but GameStop told me that my DS is close to dying and I need to get it replaced immediately...which seems rather dramatic to me. I've also been told to just replace the screen. Which seems a little inexpensive, but time isn't on my side, for I want my DS for my trip in about a week.

    I just need a little guidance in the right direction before I spend money on a screwdriver, ribbon cable and a top screen, when I may have only needed a screwdriver.

    Gamestop probably lied to you so you would buy another DS, no DS gives a Screen a hue when its dying.
    The problem is probably your screen, or the the cable which connects the bottom part of the DS and the top screen, if you have a Lite you will have to replace the Top screen, as said cable is part of the screen, if you have a Phat you only have to replace the cable.
