Question about Nintendo DS Console

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side

I dropped my DS Lite and one side of the hinge broke loose. A small cylindrical piece fell out and I can't get it back together again. I don't want to force it and create a bigger problem. Fortunately, it still works but I'm afraid the other side will break if I don't get it back together again. Thanks Y'all!

The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!

DS 2 Peices


Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.

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.
