Replacement of all covers.

I have bought a cover set to replace a broken section of my son's DS Lite. I have stripped it all down but can not see how the top screen comes away so that the cables can pass thro the left hinge.

Re: Replacement of all covers.

Be very careful when removing the flexible cable, if it becomes damaged then the upper LCD will not work. Also if you manage to get it completely apart and back together correctly be make sure you line up the cable to the silk screen lines next to the cable connector. If you push it in too far then you rish damaging the gold fingers on the connector. Again the upper LCD will not work.

Re: Replacement of all covers.

To remove the top screen the back cover actually slides off after removing all the screws from the front, once thats off you can see the ribbon cable coming through the hinge, what you need to do is coil the ribbon cable up into a tight little roll and push it through the hinge it's easier if you pull the two little cables out first. hope this helps

My son lost the dust cover for the gameboy port on his ds lite. Where can I find another? I already looked on eBay with no luck.

It seems there is no part for that.
The only way you could get that part is to buy a new set of case housing that comes with that part and use that cover part only, and make the whole casing as standby for future replacement of the whole housing.

Hope that helps!

My son's DS Lite won't come on either. It is

well repairing is not ez and the issue maybe worse then you can handle. so i say check ur warranty as that will cover it, ur warranty is usually threw the store you bought it from.

Second call nintendo as they will be able to actually repair the product, im sure they will charge you, but they will also put a guarantee the repair. good luck

My ds lite wont read my ds games

Check the game slot, under a light have a look inside to see if there are any bent or broken pins, if there are any the game slot will need to be replaced, you can take it back to where you bought and ask them about getting it repaired or contact nintendo direct for repairs.

If everything looks ok give the socket a blow inside and hold the ds with cover facing away from you and press down slightly at the top of the game socket, i know this is not a technical repair but i have done it a number of times and it has'nt failed.

Reboot nds

to reset the ds to factory settings, you will need a screwdriver. on the back of the ds is a little panel, just unscrew that, take the cover off and that that should reveal the battery pack. then all you need to do is take out the battery for a few seconds and stick it back in. put the cover back in and the next time you turn on the ds you will need to input all the data again as if you bought it for the first time.
