Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
My daughter dropped her Ninteno DS Lite and it will no longer turn on, but it DOES look like it's charging when she plugged it in. There does not appear to be any external damage, but - and I know this seems like a dumb thing to do- when she shakes it a bit, there's definately something loose rolling around. What do you think the chances are of us being able to get it repaired? Any ideas on what could be the problem?
This part probably broke off.

After my daughter dropped her DS-Lite and would not turn on, we could hear something was loose inside. I ordered a tri-wing screwdriver from play-asia.com so I could open up the case. I followed youtube instructions on how to get the case open, and expose the motherboard. I did not have to completely disassemble it. A tiny, loose black cube fell out. I studied the motherboard carefully to see exactly where the missing piece had broken off from. Then my husband soldered the cube back into its place. It worked. We were glad not to have to spend a lot of money on this repair.

I called the Nintendo help line 1-800-255-1700. Because we've owned the system for less than a year, they offered to fix it for $57.50, with shipping. We're going to try the screwdriver from the previously posted website, and do it ourselves, but then if that doesn't work we'll be sending it on in.

Wow, can't believe it! Bought the special tool from a Hong Kong company online for 86 cents with free shipping. Took a week to show up. Bought a soldering iron for $4.99, solder for $4.99. opened it up, soldered the little black box to the power nodes like the picture above.......FIXED! I've got one happy 9 year old and an even happier 5 year old who didn't have to pony up $145 from her savings to replace what she dropped and broke. The kids think I'm Superman!

Look at the best solution and solution #5. I followed their recommendation and it was fixed in less than 40 minutes. The black square they call it is a inductor with reference name of L2 on the circuit board next to the power-on switch. It is part of its power circuitry and when is disconnected there will be no power to turn on the DS.
Thanks for everyone help.
