Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I just ordered a Nintendo DS Lite from ebay. It listed that the ds lite had a broken right hinge and that it will power on, but that it will turn off after a short time. I don't know how long it will stay on for before it powers off, or if pluged in and charging if the charging light is a solid green or a blinking/flashing green. I'm just wondering if there is an instruction manuel somewhere that can tell me how to replace the broken hinge. And if the issue with the ds lite powering off is a bad battery, fuse that needs to be replaced or some other kind of issue. Any other ideas/suggestions would also be very helpful!
The nintendo DS IS A *******!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PIECE OF **** YOU ******* ****

SOURCE: Nintendo ds hinge fix
My sons ds hinge broke and i taped the console, he removed the tape and eventually he broke the cable and the black wire. we bought another case and a new cable and replaced them both and now the ds only flicks on then goes off. we assume its the wire,as its a small coaxial one,we soldered it together. it charges fine but wont power up any more,we have tinkered with it so many times and cant get a result. I am currently trying to find a repairer to look at it. I dont recommend repairing it yourself to save money, put the money towards a repairer.

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
