Nintendo DS doesn't start up, both screens white

Yesterday I wanted to calibrate the touch screen on my Nintendo DS Fat model. But I could not go to the settings. The DS would just completely freeze after I pressed the settings icon. Pictochat also wouldn't work, but I could still load my games fine.

I decided to take the battery out and put it back in. But that made it even worse. When starting the DS up, you see the Nintendo DS logo on the top screen and after that both screens turn white and you cannot do anything. This happens with the DS cartridge both in and out.

I have made a video on the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fpHGUQa...

Solution retenue

I was having the same problem. My Nintendo DS NTR 001 showed white screens after showing the Nintendo DS logo.

I found out you can boot directly into a DS cartridge by holding ABXY + R, or directly into a GBA cartridge by holding ABXY + L, while powering on.

Doing so, I was able to run a cartridge with noflashme to reinstall the stock firmware. I believe the data retention on the flash chip may have reached the end of its lifecycle being almost 20 years old and required a refresh.

EDIT: It says online using noflashme is not recommended for DS Lite. The DS I fixed was the original DS. Also, I wanted to clarify that I did not have flashme installed. I just used the tool to reinstall the stock firmware.

To be honest, I posted this question almost 6 years ago and got rid of the DS after I couldn't fix it, but your solution sounds like it could have very well fixed it. I wish I could test it. Thanks for sharing your insight. I can share with you that this issue with my DS happened after using a flash cart for a bit. At first I thought perhaps the flash cart corrupted the firmware, but had no way of testing that. So maybe instead of data loss it was corruption caused by the flash cart. But also this DS was lying unused for the better part of a decade before I started using it again, so who knows.

@wafoe Yeah, that's too bad. I just got this DS last year and it had been working fine until the same thing happened to me with the settings refusing to open. I even managed to make the same mistake you did with removing the battery which caused the white screen problem on power up.

Hopefully this can help someone else in the future.

Gonna steal @oldturkey03 answer heheh

nhan le try this one first:

Check the battery pack and ensure its charged [LED light on upper right corner should be lit GREEN].

-If AC wall power adapter is being used, ensure both the connector [into DS lite] and wall plug [to outlet] are securely connected.

-Check the battery contacts and clean if necessary using a pencil eraser or lightly scrape contacts until entire surface is shiny.

-Check the placement and orientation of battery pack to ensure its connected securely and properly.

If that does not work, you may have to disassemble your DS lite and check on the cables, connectors and logic board to make sure all connections are seated properly. Good Luck

Thanks for your answer. I'm sure it isn't the battery though. It charges fine and holds the charge for a long amount of time. I played on it yesterday without a problem. It still does charge fine after this issue happened.

I was having the same problem with the two white screens, I took it to a repair shop and I was told that the problem was the motherboard. I'm not sure how accurate that is but that was what I got before having it disassembled. I am supposed to find out exactly what's wrong tommorow after it is disassembled.

I'm experiencing the same thing! Did you ever find your answer?

@Joe Kowalczyk They said it was the motherboard so that was what they changed. It didn't look the same after the repair but I am able to use it now.
