There out it is nothing like a broken hinge only repair solution, the only way to get it repaired is to buy a new replacement shell and replace the broken parts or the whole shell, but some cheap shells wont last and will broke again so read reviews. And if you are not too skilled be careful when replacing or you can get your DS more damaged.

The best is to find a good case broken DS, like water damage etc. to get only the original plastic parts. I should love to have to buy only the broken parts needed but you have to buy the whole thing.

Broken hinges on nintendo ds.


What you need to do is follow the forms on www.powergamingparts.com and buy a new case and then fix this. Unless you are really good with electronics and small parts, I would suggest sending this to someone who does this for a living.

I do this and I would be happy to do this for you if you send the DS to me and then pay me for parts, and time spent.


You can look at the prices for the parts (a new case for which ever system it is (DS, DS Lite, DSi)) then pay me that, shipping for parts and shipping the system back to you, and I usually charge $20 - 30 for a repair, depending on how complicated it is. If the only thing that it is a hinge, then I will do it for $20.

My address is 707 E. 1475 S. Kaysville UT 84037 and just tell me if you are interested in this.

Broken DS Hinge


No, there is too much pressure. But you can buy new cases. I have fixed three this way. The procedure is not for the squeemish, but here is how to dissassemble it:

Cases are available on ebay or many gamer sites. You will also need a triwing screwdriver, also available in the same manner.
www.gamersection.ca is one example, but certainly not the only.
If you want to do this and you are not handy, I strongly suggest you find someone who is.

Its possible though sometimes it is expensive so dont worth the work.

-Top screen broken: you can buy a replacement and carefully do the work by yourself with the help of a guide (youtube have many) and some tools (3 winding screwdriver is the less common though not much). The foil data ribbon can be bought separatelly for the original NDS though the new NDS lite have it soldered and very difficult to work.

-Broken plastics: a broken hinge means you need to buy a replacement shell. Anyway buy a complete shell from a DS modding shop or take parts from a non broken plastics DS (water damaged one may be good) in a place like ebay. You would be lucky if you find a non broken screens and good plastics DS for parts.

At the end you may be over your repair budget and not only that, you would be very near to buy a new unit with this money. Each one make its own choice.

Good Luck...

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.
