    A dude needs a DS Lite to be repaired so i took the job so i can cash a lil bit.

    I've been trying to open it but sadly i don't have a triwing screwdriver(Yet!) so i'm just trying to guess what the problem could be.
    The upper screen isn't showing anything. It just has some white/black lines.
    Here's a video of it

    What could it be? Ribbon Cable? Broken LCD?

    I guess its the Ribbon cable and maybe he'll need a new shell too.

    Yes that is what you need.
    Changing use the ribbon cable is not so simple.

    All screens are silver:)

    in the illuminati headquar—I have said too much!
    Ok so when I was about like 7 or 8 my me and my brother broke my DS lite (special mario edition with M on it) we were fighting and i was pulling on the top screen and he was pulling on the bottom screen and it ripped in half! lol ok so then i figured it would be a good time to take it apart because it didnt work anymore but I didnt have a tri-ring screwdriver so i was like yolo and hummed it at the ground and it broke more so i took the screen and buttons apart xD
