The Nintendo DS lite have a flaw in the hinge that gets broken sometimes in normal use so you must take your Nintendo DS lite to warranty return as soon as you get that little crack in the DS hinge because if you wait for it to spit in two they can say anything about missuse

Nintendo replaced some of the defective units but that flaw is still a problem so I dont know if they are still replacing units for that problem. Anyway looks like you are late to claim for your warranty and a repair anywhere else would reach the same price offered by nintendo. Unless you repair it yourself.

Hi,

The described problem you have happens normally if you dropped the DS Lite. So thats why Nintendo states that it must have been dropped. It would be difficult to proof that it not has been dropped.

Sounds to me like you have spilt a drink or somethink over it or maybe even droped it? you can get a replacment of ebay, but if its still in warrenty then you can send it back, but if its caused by water of a dropping of the item then you might be charged to fix it

My sons ds lite won't turn on - the screen flashes


hey there Mike to me it sounds like one of the ribbons inside became loose or there is a blown fuse in your unit both are fixable you can check the ribbons and also the fuse can be bridged as well if your unit is under warrenty please contact nintendo about this and get a RMA for the unit if it is not under warrenty then there is two solutions to this either get a repair tech to look at it "can be found in the fixya repair directory" or we can work it out together if you need to know the steps required to fix the unit.

You may buy the screws here:

nintendo-ds-and-ds-lite-screws-and-springs

But my opinion is to go to a hardware store with a sample (cant be too long, the original ones are aprox 3mm long X 1mm diameter), try to find screws that fit and use normal philips screws instead these tri winding screws as you would need a tri winding screwdriver to put the original screws in place. All the screws in the NDSL screw in the plastic case except for the battery one that screw in a squared nut.

Good Luck...
