    Has anyone ever come across this problem where when you turn on the ds, the bottom screen works properly but the top screen is white, then fades to a blood red colour, and stays red?

    i have a feelings it a problem with the ribbon cable, because while the ds is closed, i can see the ribbon cable is damaged. i didnt attempt to fix it yet, nor open it yet, but yet i can SEE the ribbon cable damaged. im hoping that if i open it, take out the cable, adjust it a bit, clean it, by wiping the dust with my fingers, it might fix it? hopefully.

    if someone knows specfically what the white to red screen means, please fill me in:) thanks in advance. (this is what happends when you let wild kids play with a ds lite, lol)

    EDIT: i opened it up, and got a good look. the black wire is eaten out somehow, and the ribbon cable is badly damaged. it could probably be fixed if i get a new ribbon cable, or new screen (hopefully it comes with ribbon cable).
