Yes. The switch has broken and is replaceable. However I wouldn't recommend you do it unless you've done this before. DS Lites are easy to damage further when taking them apart. It's a great system but is easily broken beyond fixing. Look at all the posts on here from people putting new shells on and now the system won't boot up, broken ribbon cable connectors, etc. If it's under a year old contact Nintendo and they will repair it for free.

    Yes, you should be fine mailing it to Nintendo. I wouldn't send it anywhere else for repair. Buy postal insurance just to be safe.

My sons ds lite has a jammed l button please help


with a special tri screw driver open up the DS from underneath theres about 6-7 screws, hidden one's are under battery in the corner, one in game card slot and two under the rubber padsRemove slot 2 cover. Carefully ease the back off the L and R buttons are spring loaded so hold them down so you don't loose track of how they are fitted. If the micro button has to be replaced then you will need to solder it in. The part is about £5. If you are in the UK and can't find anyone to fix it get back to me.

Broken power switch


Look on the well known auction sites. Some are selling the switch. Ask them if they could also replace it for you. I could do it for you but I'm in Europe, so a little to far
