Where is the broken pin located? My suggestion is to buy another Mic. In my experience no matter how you fix it you'll end up getting another problem. Like a Buzz or the mic will start cutting out. Sometimes it'll effect the frequency.

Hi, If your built in microphone on your DS lite is not working then there are 5 things I can suggest for you before you go ahead and buy a new one for replacement.
1) Make sure your volume is up, you may not be hearing it picking up (sounds obvious but worth a try).
Use a wooden coctail stick or similar and CAREFULLY remove any
lint/fluff that may have collected in the mic slot (be careful not to
dig too deep as this will damage the mic).
Use a hairdryer on a low setting to dry out any spittle that may have
collected in the mic (please be careful not to let the ds get too hot
as this will cause serious damage).
Test your external mic port by either connecting a mic if you have one
and if not get a slither of metal (such as a sewing needle or
small/precision flat-head screwdriver) and give it a wiggle in the mic
port. (the mic port is the rectangled hole with two metal pins in it
net to the 3.5mm
headphone jack), if you get a reaction thats a good sign and shows
that, if it comes down to it you can use an external mic until you get
the problem sorted.
5) I must stress that this last tip requires you to have a steady and gentle hand... plus a bit of congidence :). Use
a sewing needle or pin to gently pry the two metal pins in the mic jack
upwards, the front of the pins are fixed but further back the pins
float, you need to raise these enough to sever the connection these
pins are making as when these pins are making a connection they
over-ride the internal mic.
If all these five tips fail to work for you then your only option is to replace the microphone, it can easily be done with basic/moderate D.I.Y skills. A replacement DS lite microphone is readily avaliable and cheap on ebay. If you need help with a microphone replacement please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help you out.
I hope this helps and would like to
say I accept no responsability for any damage that may occur to your ds
lite when following my tips.
Your blu ray drive is broken. You will need to replace it. You will need to find a local repair shop, the process should only take an hour or less. Don't worry, once the drive is repaired or replaced, you will be back to gaming in no time. If you are handy, purchase a drive (be sure to have the correct model number, located on the back of the unit) and install the new drive. Be sure to remove your blu ray drive's controller board and put it on the new drive once you receive it. There are many things that can go wrong so please do be careful.
I have reattached three headstocks myself as an amateur... I would take your pieces to a Luthier and see what he says about it. The ones I repaired, an acoustic bass required putting in a steel pin to stabilize the joint and some epoxy for the pin as well as the wood glue... an acoustic 6 string required only careful gluing, as did a 5 string banjo...
In all cases Titebond III glue was used for the wood and perfect mateup of the parts was required. Nitrocellulose laquer restored the finish using very fine emery sanding (4000 grit) wet sanding.
The perfect fitup and clamping is mandatory, and the gluing, if done right, will be stronger than the original wood. A key is to have clean LARGE areas of glue contact.
Please do take the unit to a professional Luthier... you should find them in your phone book...
Sounds like a software issue, possibly with webam central. There's a free player that has good codecs, and it may help you. Here it is: http://www.finalmediaplayer.com/
This will be an easy fix if it works.
Try resetting the Ds lite by taking the battery out for a few minutes then try the mic again.
If this fails the mic has blown and needs to be replaced. This involves taking the unit apart and installing the new mic and cable from it's location in the top screen to the port in the motherboard in the bottom screen.
If you are not handy at repairs i would suggest bringing it to a local repair shop as it is a relatively cheap repair to fix (€20 approx).
WE FIXED IT!!!!! Ok my fabulous husband fixed my automatic thread foot last night and now I am sewing away. Here is what he did best I can describe. when you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right of the sewing machine. I has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving part. the foot has to snap under the white plastic thing... so you have to very carefully take the white thing out of the track and then put the foot in. the bar side with the larger metal pin goes here and the foot should be facing towards the needle. Hope this helps and if I didn;t explain it well please leave me a note and I will try again :)
