Nintendo DS Lite Housing Shell Replacement- I need instructions! Please help!

I bought a pink DS Lite about a year ago, and recently decided that white would look nicer..... well long story short, I bought a replacement housing shell on ebay. All the parts are there and I've got the screw drivers and all. My problem is that the person that sent it shipped it out of Hong Kong so the directions are all in chinese! I've looked all over the internet and can't seem to find any directions on how to change it out- Please help me :( Ima fool!

I found instructions at the following website: http://www.flickr.com/photos/62647765@N00/sets/72157594277451148/

It is written for the Shock clear case, but it works for all of them. It isn't for the faint of heart! Just take your time, and do each step with a lot of care (and patience!) I thought I fried my NDSL when it turned on and immediately off, but it turned out the lcd ribbon wasn't properly seated when reattaching. Let me know if you have any trouble..

Top screen won't lock


Hi,

The most likely reason for the screen being unstable is that when the shell casing was damaged the top screens ribbon was damaged at the same time.

You can sort both these issues out but it is not a small job, you will need a few specialist tools, a new top screen, basic soldering skills, delicate handling and plenty of patience.

If you are willing to take on this task then everything you need for the job is readily avaliable from ebay.

The stuff you need are:
1x Replacement shell/ housing/ casing for DS lite.
1x Replacement top screen for DS lite.
1x Precision tri-wing screwdriver.
1x Soldering iron (ideally with 1mm tip, but not essential) and solder.
1x Tweezers.
1x Flat tool, i.e. craft knife, flat head screwdriver.
1x Precision cross head screwdriver.

If you click on my name it will take you to my profile page, once there have a look at my guides I have written, you will need "DS lite dismantle process" and "DS lite top screen replacement".

If you require further help or advice then please get back to me and I will do my best to assist you as best I can.

Regards,

It's not easy at all. My company does repairs on PSP, XBox 360, PS3, Wii, and PS2. But we don't touch DS Lites. The following company will do it for you at a reasonable cost:

They do all of our DS Lite repairs!
Also make sure you get an OFFICIAL Nintendo shell case. Some of the aftermarket ones don't fit properly. The following website sells the shells:
