Where is the microphone located?


Hello bdbsmom. The location of the microphone for the Nintendo DS is located at the hinge between the middle of the two screens. Are you having a problem with the microphone or were you just curious?

Mic test hs no volume bars how can i fix this


Nintendo DSi & Nintendo DSi XL - Settings - Mic Test
You can use this feature to verify that the system's built-in microphone is working properly.
How to test the microphone:
  1. On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the Settings ("wrench") icon.
  2. Select the right arrow twice to go to page 3, then select "Mic Test."
  3. Speak into the microphone (the microphone is located on the center of the hinge).mictest1.png
  4. The volume bar will fill up with colored bands when it picks up sound.

    • If the volume meter does not fill up, check whether anything is connected to the headset port. If noting is connected and test still does not work, then there is likely a problem with the microphone and the Nintendo DSi will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
    • If the volume meter responds, then the microphone is working properly.

My top screen is separated from my bottom screen but it still works because a part from the right hinge broke off. The only problem is that my microphone doesn't work. How can I fix it?


There are 2 thin wires that run along the inside of the spine that clip onto two connectors on the mother board - one is the microphone. It sounds like this has become dislodged. Unscrew the back and check if one of the two wires is loose. On YouTube there is a great tutorial for "how to repair Nintendo DS Lite touch screen by supermodchips that explains very clearly where this wire should be. Good luck

Nintendo ds lite has a broken hinge


You can buy a new plastic housing for your DS lite on many different sites. Some are great quality. If the DS still works (despite the broken hinge) it makes sense to replace the housing.
You should be able to find enough videos on youtube to learn how to disassembe the DS and not do any harm. Make sure that you buy a tri-wing screwdriver (also called a nintendo screwdriver).

Hope this helps

Nintendo ds broken hinge.

Broken top screen (original DS)


Replying to the first post:
If you have broken the ribbon cable, which is highly likely if you have broken the hinge, then the DS will not work. It does not turn on unless there is a connection to both screens. You will need to buy a new ribbon cable for it:
A useful site I found is: www.consoleparts4u.co.uk

Once you replace this then it should work for you.

Repling to th second post:

I would recommend buying a new case for it at least because the ribbon cable will break if left broken due to the strain on it.

The more expensive but easier option is to buy a new one.

Hope this helps,

Mowcius

Microphone doesn't work


The mic is connected by a small white wire that runs through the hinge section. It can get caught in the slot the top screens ribbon cable goes in and get broken. This is the most common cause. However it is also possible the end connected to the board has come loose. But it's more likely that the wire has been broken.
