    maybe it could be the wire and not the screen?

    In my brief experience, I've found that if the top screen doesn't work, upon startup of your DS, the bottom screen will flash white and the system will turn off. If this is your problem It is one of two things.

    1. the upper screen flat cable is broken, or, if you were sure you were careful in replacing it, then more than likelythe problem is......
    2. the upper screen flatwire is not pushed all the way into the gate on the mainboard.

    I had problem number two just last night when doing a case swap.
    hope this helps. good luck
