Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
My son will play for only a minute or so and it powers off. Just started happening. Whatt could be the problem? It is two years old and has been used quite a bit. It does have the crack on the hinge that has been mentioned in other postings, but seems cosmetic. Please help.
There is a ribbon cable that runs through the hinge. If the hinge is damaged, the ribbon cable can easily be damaged. If the ribbon cable is only slightly damaged, then movement will cause it to break the connection. When it loses connection, it will power off. You can test this by moving the top screen up and down a bunch to see if it shuts off more while doing this. To fix this problem, you will need a new top LCD screen installed by a qualified technician. The cost of the part is around $15, so use that as a baseline to know if you are getting a good price. Also, do not trust anyone without either credentials or experience, or they will very likely damage the console further.
