That is a very common problem with the DS system, it will not affect the gameplay, Most DS systems if they are opened up to 180 degree (fully open) they tend to stress the hinge and they crack. Nintendo had a ton of complaints reguarding this, and they will not fix due to it not effecting the playabillity of the system.

My ds lite l and r shoulder buttons stoped working, also when i open my ds the screen is woboly


First off. The quickest way to fix the L and R butons is to blow into the sides of the buttons as hard as you can several times for both buttons. I know it sounds dumb, but dust collects in there and 90% of the time this is the problem.

Second, if the top screen is wobbly it's because either the hing has worn our or the case has cracked at the hing. Either way the DS will need to be repaired (taken apart) to fix this. Both instances will require new parts. Hope this helps.

Any liquid spills???


You've damaged the hinges and when that happens the cables are destroyed easily. Both of then need to be replaced.

Crack in DS


I have tried plenty of ways but this plastic cant be pasted easily and the hinge crack the junction again so basically you need a new hinge piece, something saddly cant be bought alone, you need to buy a whole shell.

If not under nintendo 1year warranty, the best thing you can do to kill this problem is take the DS to a videogame repair service to replace the shell before the top screen or the whole DS suffer more damage. You can also consider to buy and change the shell by yourself. The bad new is anyway you need some money to repair it.

You can use the DS carefully meanwhile the top part dont get completelly out of place.

Nintendo ds hinge fix


Well, you can buy a hinge from a lot of places, but the wire that broke, you are going to have to try and fix the wire, get it connected again so that it will work. The only other solution is that you will have to send it in to get fixed.
