Just do it nice and slow

Yes I can help you, the stylus holder is screwed on to the inside of the backing case.
if you remove the case back you can remove the stylus holder and then the stylus and put it back together.
Be careful when taking it apart and putting it back together not to break the power switch off, it is extremely delicate. turn the speakers all the way down and make surethat the slides are in position before putting the case back on.

My stylus is stuck im my ds stylus holder


Is it too big for it? If so, you might want to try this: the stylus holder is screwed on to the inside of the backing case.
if you remove the case back you can remove the stylus holder and then the stylus and put it back together.
Be careful when taking it apart and putting it back together not to break the power switch off, it is extremely delicate. turn the speakers all the way down and make surethat the slides are in position before putting the case back on.

Broken in half got new shell don't know how to put together


much of it is pretty straight forward, the only hard part is putting the ribbon cable thru the hinge for the top screen, without ripping it, best thing to say is put the ribbon cable in first, then the wifi and mic cables (black and white), rest is pretty straightforward.

Switching ds game slot


I could not find anyone that sold these connectors anywhere. I ended up buying a DS or DS lite motherboard on eBay for cheap. I was able to replace the game slot connector.

Pay attention when you dissassemble your console. Especially the whay the rear buttons and the pins fit. Also, be careful when you pull the 2 housings apart. I accidentally damaged my power button switch and had to replace that as well. Other than that and the soldering it was very easy to do.

I hope this helps

Dark screens


No.. most likely the ribbon cable that connects the lcd screen to the rest of the ds has been damaged or knocked loose. Or the circuit board somewhere has been cracked or damaged, affecting the circuitry that sends a signal to the lcd screen.

Is it under warranty? You can maybe send it back to Ninendo for repair. Or open it and attempt to repair it yourself. Otherewise I'm afraid the DS is just broken...

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...

Stylus tip stuck in headphone jack(no sound!)


Yes, here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:

"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

And after opening it you may need to replace or try to repair the audio plug. In case you cant, then you must take it out (desoldering it with the stuck stylus tip and the mute switch, which is embeded in the headphone jack) and you can have your audio back.
As the audio switch and the jack only work to mute the speakers audio usually when you plug a headphone then you can lack of it almost all times.
