Just checking but did you make sure to reinsert the tiny ribbon cable from step 13? might be something tiny you overlooked?

Is there any way to replace the socket for the touch screen? I bought a used DS lite with a non working screen and when I opened it I found out that the flap was broken

Hi, I was trying this and everything works, but my left trigger button on the motherboard came off. I tried resoldering it and test it and it works… too well. As in it's constantly being pressed on, or it's registering constant button presses, even though it's not being pressed on. When I resoldered it, it only had 2 metal contact pins at the bottom. If I can get help for this as soon as possible, the repair will be complete.

The “microphone connector" is actually the digitizer ribbon, the microphone runs through the same cable as the top screen. Just a minor thing I wanted to point out.
