    I tore the ribbon cable for the upper screen of my DS Lite. Do I have to buy a whole new screen, or can I just buy a cable like this one!

    Thanks a lot!

    Are you adept at SMD soldering? If not then no you'd be better off buying the whole screen.

    You can get a whole screen for cheaper on eBay so it'd be worth changing the whole thing :-)
