    For clarification it sounds like one of the hinges broke? My son's ds is doing the exact same thing, there are a few good tutorials on how to take apart the machine, depending on your skill level. I know how, but not well enough to tell someone else how. Note.. on a ds lite, the top screen can be found on Ebay, for about 40$, but it needs to be soldered onto the console, and a special screwdriver, a tri-wing, is needed for the screws on the console. A drop usually means the ribbon cable going from the bottom to the top screen, through the hinge which is broken, has become separated. Either way, cable or screen, you need a pretty fair amount of electrician know-how to repair it, or even open the case. I have 15 years of fighter aircraft electrical repair exp, and the planes take their fair share of shake-and-drop damage. :)

    That's some crucial damage, you need to contact Nintendo or a local repair tech for that!

You do not want to take the unit apart yourself!!! if you break the power switch off it is very complicated to replace and would need soldiering. I have cases, hinges, and top screens (in case the ribbon cable got messed up) in stock and would be happy to replace them for you. I have many colors so pick whichever you want.
I have been working on these units for a while now and have great success in fixing them.

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...

Conection?


Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo2.gif DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video2.gif in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS2.gif Lite"

And after opening it you can do your work. Make sure the flexible cables connecting the top screen part of your DS are well in place and not broken. Your problem may be only a loosen cable but in case the cable is broken you gonna need a replacement. Be careful not to damage the screen or other sensitive electronic parts on your device and you will be on your way.

Good Luck...

Nintendo ds to screen broken


Hi, replacing the original nds upper screen is a fairly straight forward procedure, you need to remove the 4 x small plastic plugs located in the corners of upper screen, then remove the 4 x phillips screws, the top outer back part of the case will seperate and you can gain access to the screen. Firstly remove the small screw holding down the right hand pcboard to gain access to the ribbon connectors, release the larger flat connector by hinging the clip up, slide the ribbon out, underneath you will see a tiny connector, gently ease the small clip back towards the ribbon, prising a little each side at a time, remove the ribbon and then you can prise the screen from the case.
These guys sell the replacement screens www.ps2laser.co.uk prices are very competitive and offer next day delivery!

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side


The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!
