Hello,
as my topic says, my top screen just somehow got really messed up. There's only a the blank white with a yellow or blue (skinny) streaming down it near the middle left side. I am guessing somehow the ribbon cables somehow got damaged from reading past experience when people put new shells on the DS, but am not sure. Any suggestions or should I just auction it off on ebay? 0.o
Thanks,
Kevin

Time to buy another one... That's what I'm doing: mine's touch screen is blurring and showing lines sometimes. It almost looks like an old TV set screen.

I'm solding my retired and working PS2 system to get a brand new DS Lite system!

Ah...I was hoping not to sell it -.-
If I was to open it though, would I just need a tri screw driver?

P.S. The serial code is taken off the DS(It was hanging and I didn't like it....) So really don't think people would want to pay for something like that missing.

DS Phat, changing the cable. It is fiddly but not that hard if you research it first, have a go - you will loses no money (apart from the cost of the replacement part) as it will still fetch about the same price on eBay. Cable is $7 or so from www.dealextreme.com triwing screwdriver is also cheap

    Finally got an appointment with an ENT, but it's not for another month. It's already been 4- days of loud ringing in my left ear, substantial pain on left side of my neck and left side on the back of my head. Doctors here at the regular clinic put me on a couple different meds for a month that did absolutely nothing, then they told me there's nothing more they can do for me despite being in pain and my ear sounding like im underwater and ringing.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Then three chiropractor appointments which also didn't help at all so i didn't go to the 4th. Been trying to get ahold of this ENT clinic out of town for a week and finally got an appointment set up. But its not til the 17th of July so I have to suffer all this shit for nearly another month.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I hope relief from all of this is on the way because I've felt so defeated and severaly lacking in sleep because of the pain and ringing.
