Hi I hope you can save my bacon...
I replaced my daughters ds case nps but the ds has lost sound I can her out of the headphones but not top speakers I tested these speakers with my sons ds lower board and they r fine, but worse than that before puting the back cover on to test the sound out I accidently put the battery on the terminals the wrong way round & now the ds wont come on,the orange charge light flashes for 1 sec then nothing.
I have a spare ds broken (dropped down loo) and Im a compatent solderer if you could point me in the right direction that would be really help full as my 6yr old daughter is looking at me like death warmed up and the wife has put a no sex ban into action till I get it fixed.
Hello Steve, Maybe this can help! For the ds, when you removed the origanal case, it probably unhooked the speaker wires, i get this theory because the ds is like a computer because just like a sound card, it has different sound channels(there's one problem down). Next, you said that you switched the battery terminals, this probably fried the battery, but not completely,thus, leading to it reading for a second but then dying. I suggest that you buy a new ds battery, you can get one of these at a local bestbuy, wal mart, or even target. Again, i hope that this helped.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It works well with the headphones?
Well.. That's odd.
Check the left side of your DS volume.
there's a toggle button that says
- VOL +
toggle it rightly,as the volume will get higher. Maybe your headphones can adjust the volume. So either contact www.nintendo.com or call Nintendo 1-800-255-3700. Or if you like your DS with headphones,keep it that way.
if i remember correctly i had two different ds's a original DS and a DSI both of these have automatic game save so your daughter can play a game and just press quit when shes done and it will automatically save it. I hope this helps Merry Christmas!
You might have a wire of some sort out of place as you suggested. I would not try to take of any part of the DS, because if you hit something wrong, or can't get it back together, them you may have to get a new DS. Did your daughter spill something on her DS, or drop it?
If you don't know what happened to the DS, then it may be the companies problem. if your daughter recently got the DS, then you can return it to the store, or send a direct complaint to the company. Even if she got it a long time ago, if it suddenly starts not working at full efficiancy, send it back to nintendo. If you still have the repicet, then send back to the store and tell them what happened.
I may have one to sell you. I have two nonfunctioning DS lite motherboards that I can remove the headphone jack from. Cost would be $8 plus $7.99 for shipping/handling. I can cut it off the motherboard and send it. Do you have the tools to open the DS up and solder a replacement on? If not, I would do that for you at $40 plus $7.99 shipping handling. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sounds like corrupt firmware but there is no way to download new firmware or install it for the DS that i know of.
The DS may not have it but computers use a small watch battery to save this information. There could possibly be a small watch battery on the motherbaord for the DS that went bad and possibly if you replaced it it maybe hold it's time,date, etc. again.
I could be way off but it may help.
I did find a website that you can buy replacement parts to fix DS's.
The only thing you can buy that makes sense towards your problem is a new logic board.
If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:
"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"
And after opening it you may need to replace or try to repair the audio plug. In case you cant, then you must take it out (desoldering it with the stuck stylus tip and the mute switch, which is embeded in the headphone jack) and you can have your audio back. As the audio switch and the jack only work to mute the speakers audio usually when you plug a headphone then you can lack of it almost all times.
