Dropped and broke !

My son dropped his DS lte and the shoulder on the right broke off. The system still works but the screen now flops around. If I were to buy a replacement shell, how difficult for a novice is it to change over ?

Green light is on my sons Ds but I haven picture r sound he dropped it

It sounds like something broke on the inside when your son dropped the DS. If you have a warranty, see if it will cover the damage, otherwise you will need to purchase a new one.

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.

My son's ds won't turn on

Was the DS dropped? Sounds like the top screen ribbon has become disconnected from the motherboard, or is broke. You may have to replace the top lcd screen.

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.

Screen-angle adjuster missing

lots of times for small parts like that the easiest thing to do is to go to ebay and search for broken or non working ds's.

for example:

Good luck!

Is my Nintendo DS Dead?

You are going to have to send it so that they can reset your system. Also, it could be that it is working but there is a short to your LCD screen. look around at some companies that fix gameing equipment. I went to and they fixed my sons DS. he had dropped it and the top screen would not come out. they had to change out the LCD screen.
