Brought a ds lite and new ds shell as the old one had broken hinge.Whilst re routing the black antenna cable broke (gold connection bit came off) i have ordered a new one from ebay.So as this is just for...


Hi,
If you yourself have replace it, I think you damage the upper LCD ribbon connector. I have repaired a lot of DS, a broken hinge usually the cause of that problem( ribbon connector cut off ).
Check the upper LCD if that model have a seperate ribbon connector, luckily you could buy the ribbon only, if not, BAD LUCK, you have to buy a new upper LCD.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

It's not easy at all. My company does repairs on PSP, XBox 360, PS3, Wii, and PS2. But we don't touch DS Lites. The following company will do it for you at a reasonable cost:

They do all of our DS Lite repairs!
Also make sure you get an OFFICIAL Nintendo shell case. Some of the aftermarket ones don't fit properly. The following website sells the shells:

Lid support broke


Not much info but if you mean the lid on your DS falls backward when opened then one of two things has happened either the small barrel lock in the hinge has broken, this is rare. Or you have broken the hinge allowing the barrel lock to rotate in the case.
The barrel is cheap and a very easy fix by opening the case removing the led lens holder then change the lock. If you have broken the hinge you will need to replace the case, tricky job requiring patience especially when transfering the top screen to the new case. Watch a few you tube instruction videos to get a better idea of whats involved.

Ds lite hinge is broken is there an easy fix Right Hinge Broke, Screen Flaps instead of clicking and occasionally goes blank.


beeabe,

I'm sorry to tell you but there is no *easy* fix. If you've had no experience taking apart and assembling a Nintendo DS, I advise you NOT to start with your one and only. It's so easy to rip the LCD cables because they're so thin and you'll have to go buy another.


There are two ways to fix this... Super glue / tape it as much as you can , or send it in for repair or find a local Game repair place.



To fix a broken hinge on a DS, it requires you to disassemble the WHOLE thing. Which sucks when just starting out.

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

Broken nintendo ds lite hinge. Do I send it away for repairs or get a new console?


Nintendo will fix the hinges depending on a few things, first thing would be to determine how the hinges were broken. The hinges are tested before they leave the factory, the only way that they actually break would be because of physical damage/impact. Physical damage is not covered under the manufact warranty so you would get a discounted price depending on if your under warranty or not. Regardless giving them a call and having their techs fix them will be the best bet, not only because you know it will be fixed right and your warranty will start over the day it gets repaired.

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.

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!
