My sons DSi was dropped and the left hinge broke. i have been able to repair the hinge (as in put it back in but cover still cracked) and it opens and closes ok but when you switch it on the Nintendo white...

I had this same problem after my son dropped and broke his DS lite. The hinge broke and it was constantly freezing up. I did some research and decided that repair wold be the better and cheaper option to buying a new one. I found this repair place site online . I filled out the online order form and shipped it off. They had great customer communication through their website and kept me updated every step of the way.We had our system back within a few days as good as new which made my son very happy and at a very reasonable price which made me very happy. If you are looking into repair for your game system I strongly recommend them.

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.

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side

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!

Nintendo ds hinge fix

Well, you can buy a hinge from a lot of places, but the wire that broke, you are going to have to try and fix the wire, get it connected again so that it will work. The only other solution is that you will have to send it in to get fixed.
