Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Refurbishing I was wondering if I should refurbish My DS. I know what refurbishing is, but I was wondering where I could get my DS refurbished. If I decided to not get my DS refurbished, I was wondering if there where some simple, cheap fixes for it's problems. It has a large scratch on the center of the touch screen, and there is a lot of dirt and scratches on the outside. By the way, even though it says that I have a problem with a DS Lite, my problem is with the original DS. If it matters. Thanks in advance~

If its just cosmetic issues then you can go on ebay and buy one that dont work and just use the parts to replace on yours.

Here are a few price option for the DS:

DS Lite Cobolt:NEW120.99 /used 79.99 from Amazon

Gamestop has a DS for 69.99 refurbished or a DSI new for 149.99

Ebay has plenty of options but you dont always get a warranty. You have to be sure and read the auction close and/or send a message.

If you are looking for a specific model let me know and I will get you the best price.

Help me please!!!! how many different types of xbox 360s are there in gamestop tell me there names and prices. and is it okay to get the xbox 360 pro refurbished at gamestop are the refurbished xbox 360...

personally never buy a refurbished xbox,unless u want to be swaping parts in and out all the time, people dont usually return xboxs, simply becasue of the multimedia se unless it has gone bad, so spend that extra money and you should be set there is the xbox elite, in black and xbox pro in plain white but there is different versions like 60 gb 8 gb or 40 gb harddrives. there is also special edition xboxs but gamestop might not carry them

Can i mod a refurbished psp slim

You should be able to mod a refurbished PSP just the same as if it was not refurbished.

As far as I know, they don't replace any of the internal parts with upgraded/incompatible versions of them.

Good Luck.

I took my ds aprt put it back together and no power on?

Oh... Taking your DS apart is a huge no no! Only professionals should take apart your DS. That goes for other items as well.

I suggest that you take it to a professional and have your DS refurbished. Refurbishing makes your DS like new, and can cost anywhere from $70 - $90, depending on where you take your DS to be refurbished.

Hope it helps~

Nintendo DS Lite screen is not working properly

I leave my DS on the charger all the time with no problems. You are going to get a lot of people telling you this, so be ready.

Anyway, way the DS dropped, stepped on, or had something spilled on it? That could very well be the cause.

Another problem could be the charger. Look and see if the charger is torn, has something on it ( Juice, sticky stuff, or something that really shouldn't be there), and by something on the charger, I mean something on the head of the charger that you plug into the DS. The wire could be torn up and frayed too.

You could also get the DS refurbished. This should correct the problem. Refurbishing is cheaper than buying a new one, refurbishing a DS costs anywhere from $70 to around $90.

Hope it helps~

Ps3 60gb wont read disc

Hi by them saying refurbished they mean their going to give you one that they have recieved back with a problem like either disk read error or over heating problem.
The up side to having a refurbished one is that they replace most of the parts that was in it originally say the problem was not reading disks if they just change the laser then send it out then it might overheat and then they would lose customers and get bad press as they dont want either of this the replace most if not all of the main repalcable parts like lases unit heatsink,fan,controll ports,output ports like to tv and internet.
But the bonus to having a refurbished one is the parts they replace the old ones with are newer and made better as they find out what caused the problem in the first place and then improve on the way they make the parts.
So if it was me i would take one of the refurbished ones knowing its got a load of new and better parts inside and it should last you alot longer as they deffinately dont want you to send it back to them again do they if this kept happening they would lose all their customers so go for it your going to get a better ps3 than the one you had originally let me know if you need further assistance ok
