Question about Nintendo PDAs

1 Answer

I have a Nintendo DS Lite that needs a new housing. It works fine, just the rounded hinge on the right is bent and cracked because it was dropped. Can a local repair shop put a new housing on, or do I have to send back to Nintendo? It is out of warranty. I found some new housings on ebay and they are cheap, but the instructions on replacing the housing that I found on another site were daunting. So, I can purchase the housing and have someone else put it together, or send it back to Nintendo. What is my cheapest but best option?

Changed screen, now no power


Disassembly and assembly it again, putting close attention to how the mainboard is assembled, and all the wires and connectors are placed.

If the switch that senses when the rear cover lid is not working fine, won't power on.

If during the assembly of the PDA you had by accident something that prevents the swithc to work, you will have the problem.

You have to check also the contacts for the battery on the ain board. Check that are not damaged, bent or desoldered.

Other possible reason is that during the repair of the LCD screen, the mainboard was forced, bent or warped, then you will have a more serious problem, since tiny smt capacitors are cracked very easy, which causes an electrical short, preventing the PDA to power on.

Diagnosctics and repair of it needs a qualified technician for it.

My nintendo ds lite has a neck fracture so it doesnt hold the spots as a usal one does and also the screen turns blue most of the time are these problems fixable?


I had the same prob 2!
This is what u do...
Take ur DS console to the shop u bought it from. Then they'll probably fix it like what they did 2 mine. If they cant fix it u might have 2 take it to Nintendo Customer Support and they'll probably take it to repair. If the problem is unfixable (85% chance its going 2 be fixed) They might have 2 replace it or unless if u have warranty or inurance u'll get the replacment for free...
I Hope this has helped u!

Display problem on NEC MobilePro 900


I just bought a 900C on eBay and had the same problem. According to the seller "the video cable on the right under the hinge cover gets loose..if its reseated it will be fine..you could just press on the bottom of the hinge cover right and it will make it go away but best to reseat the cable." I haven't tried his solution yet. Mine seems to intermittent since it is working fine right now.
