Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Broken hinge Hi Guru. Please, please help me.Just wondering if you could help me.I purchased my son a Nintendo DS on the 2nd December 2006 for my son's xmas present. I rang Nintedo help line Fri the 16th Nov to be told that I had to send the console off for repair. I explained that I had misplaced the receipt but have a replica one which I have received from Woolworths Store in Farnworth near where I live. I rang Nintedo again on the 20th November, they said that they had already sent the label out to me.The thing that I am really bothered aboutall this and that I have been told that this is a comman fault with this console.Another thing as well, I am a single parent and it has cost me so far to ring the Nintendo help line £25 to get this matter sorted out.Please help me and give me some advice. ThankyouSharon

Re: broken hinge

Hi Sharon,

I have repaired a couple of the DS with a Broken hinge. It is very frustrating and extremely hard to do. Check out my service and we can work something out. If you are delicate and skilled with intricate work on electronic devices. You can get a new case in several different colors on Ebay. I am sure you can get one for under £12.

Hinge problem

There out it is nothing like a broken hinge only repair solution, the only way to get it repaired is to buy a new replacement shell and replace the broken parts or the whole shell, but some cheap shells wont last and will broke again so read reviews. And if you are not too skilled be careful when replacing or you can get your DS more damaged.

The best is to find a good case broken DS, like water damage etc. to get only the original plastic parts. I should love to have to buy only the broken parts needed but you have to buy the whole thing.

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.
