Re: Nintendo DS New CASE Fitted

Hmm, when you removed the top screen's flex cable, were you very gentle indeed? It could have been torn when pushing it through the metal barrel in the hinge and working it into place through the slot in the case. Otherwise it may just not be pushed fully home into its connector socket.

First remove the new case and see what you get - if it all works fine then the case must be pinching a cable or pressing on something it shouldn't. Check the unit with AC only or battery power only. The faint click is probably the power switch membrane clicking across - probably indicating that the switch itself is fine - but check at least visually and with a meter if you can. the most likely causes of the problem if removing the case again does not get it working are; Loose connector - probably where the screen hinge is, or where those cables connect to -check anything that you could have moved. Is it an official original case? some cheap copies may be badly fitting, although I found no info on any problem like this so far. If you have a card inserted, try with a different one or without one. check nothing got in the card slot and no pins are bent - especially if you just put a card back in after replacing the case. Especially could be problem if your DS was set in Auto start-up mode before. Possibly unconnected to the case change, the power supply or battery could have failed. Check through this link and see if it helps identify if that is the problem. Do you get any power or charging lights? nintendo do not recommend it, but it may be worth removing and reinstalling the battery in order to reset the unit. proceed with care. Here is the link to the manual if you need it; Hope this helps - please post back with more details :)

Case is broken on nintendo Ds

It depends on how much the broken part is bothering you as to whether or not you want to replace it. If it affects game play, then replace it.
You can get a new case on eBay for anywhere between £5 and £10. It's not too hard to replace but you need to be very careful and it will take an hour or two. There are great videos on YouTube which provide fantastic step by step instructions. Good luck!

The switch is broken. This is a common problem if the shell case has been removed or if someone simply pushed way too ******* the power button. A new button can be purchased on ebay for under $10. Some soldering and desoldering will be required. The DS Lite is breakable when taking it apart so be careful. You can also send it to a guy like me for a fee and have it fixed or sell the broken unit to someone like me that fixes them.

Turn in the theft to the police. They check serial numbers from pawn shops. Go luck thought, they really don't care.

Nintendo ds - broken hinges

Try gripping them with a pair of long nose pliers and pulling them out. I'd advise a layer of cloth between plier teeth and rods, to stop them being gouged.

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!
