Nintendo DS Lite Broken Right Hinge & failure to stay powered on

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!

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.

SOURCE: nintendo ds lite has a broken hinge

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

Hi,
If you yourself have replace it, I think you damage the upper LCD ribbon connector. I have repaired a lot of DS, a broken hinge usually the cause of that problem( ribbon connector cut off ).
Check the upper LCD if that model have a seperate ribbon connector, luckily you could buy the ribbon only, if not, BAD LUCK, you have to buy a new upper LCD.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

It's not easy at all. My company does repairs on PSP, XBox 360, PS3, Wii, and PS2. But we don't touch DS Lites. The following company will do it for you at a reasonable cost:

They do all of our DS Lite repairs!
Also make sure you get an OFFICIAL Nintendo shell case. Some of the aftermarket ones don't fit properly. The following website sells the shells:

Green screen


There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.
