    I'm thinking about putting together a DS since I don't have one. I have some spare parts from other DS's that I have except for a new housing. But I have a problem which I'm not sure.

    I have 2 DS motherboards and some screens. I'm not sure if they work as I know that once I turn on the DS, the bottom screen would be messed up (black spots in the corner) and then the DS would turn off. I know that probably means that the bottom screen is broken and I may need a new one but if the DS turns off, does that mean the motherboard is broken beyond repair? Or maybe it is just the screens?

    That's true. Any possible way I can find out what exactly is wrong with it that it turns off?

    If it turns on then turns off, it's normally still ok. Make sure both screens are plugged in all the way.

    your ds will power-off automatically if one of the ribbon cables is broken.it's either the top or the bottom lcd.
    check which lcd doesn't light up.then check the led backlights.
