    Look at the flag
    I'm having some problems with my DS's bottom screen. It seems that its refresh rate got lower, I can see dark lines moving on it. The top screen seems fine. When I tap hard on the back of my DS, it seems to get worse, though, but one time it got fixed somehow. If I take it apart and fiddle with contacts, will it get any better? I'm waiting for a housing shell, so I'm gonna take it apart anyway, won't want to waste that chance.

    Sounds like the ribbon cable is loose/falling out. It's an easy fix if it's not ripped, and you're going to take it apart anyway.

    Bear in mind there are 2 ribbon cables, 1 for touch and 1 for picture.
