This is the same kind of screw used on the Nintendo DS. I bought one via eBay last year to fix a broken screen. It worked on this phone to take it apart. I think I paid about $6 US and shipping.

Do a search on Nintendo+DS+screwdriver.

I want to open my wahl hair dryer and clean it out because it smells like something is burning in it. But it has a three prong screw that I've never seen before. How do you get the casing open?


You purchase a Tri wing screwdriver or alternatively make one by grinding a worn out thin screwdriver into a triangle shape that fits the screw heads.

Touch screen is not responding and can not play any games.


Perform a recalibration as soon as you notice a problem, to prevent performance errors.

If the calibration problems do not go away you may need to contact Nintendo for technical service or if you think you can replace the screen you self i can give the process to do so...

How to Replace a Nintendo DSi Touch Screen


Finding someone to fix a Nintendo DSi touch screen can be time-consuming and costly. However, with the right tools, you can do it yourself. Even if you've never tried fixing anything until now.

Instructions

things you'll need:

* Tri-wing screwdriver
* Precision Phillips screwdriver
* Precision flathead screwdriver
* New Nintendo DSi touch screen




Turn the Nintendo DSi over and find the five screws on the edges of the bottom. Take each one out with your tri-wing screwdriver. In the center you will find an additional screw that will need to be removed with a precision Phillips screwdriver. This keeps your battery in place.


Take the battery out. Underneath it you will find two screws that must be removed with the tri-wing screwdriver. After both have been taken out, pull up on the bottom casing to access the motherboard. In order to replace a Nintendo DSi touch screen, this will have to be removed.


Detach the right and left buttons in the top corners by pulling up. Underneath each one will be a spring---make sure you don't lose these. Then remove the four screws in the middle of the motherboard with the precision Phillips screwdriver.


Look for the ribbon attached on the bottom left corner of the motherboard. Take a precision flathead screwdriver and pull up on the black bar that connects the ribbon. You should be able to slide it out by pulling back.


Find the two small connectors that are locked in with two tiny clips on each one. Lift up on all four clips to pull out the underlying connectors. Take out the motherboard and turn it upside down. Now you are ready to replace your DSi touch screen.


Detach the Nintendo DSi touch screen with your fingernails. Pull it away from the adhesive, one side at a time. Take the new screen and peel away the protective plastic before replacing it. Line it up where the old touch screen was and reassemble the Nintendo DSi.

Hope it helped...

Unable to read disc


Hello,

If your console is unable to read disc, then there seem to be a problem with the console, and the problem most likely is as a result of a bad laser/lens inside the console.

To replace the lens of the nitendo wii console, remove the two flip up panela on the side of the wii to reveal the black face plate with the controller ports and memory card slot.

Then remove the three screws located underneath the flip up panels using the fine phillips head screwdriver, then remove the black face plate.

Then remove the two tri wing screws located underneath the face plate. There are also two phillip head screws under the face plate but you can leave them in place.

Use a scalpel to peel off the two white stickers that are covering the screws located near the two front rubber feet on the bottom of the wii. This will reveal two black tri wing screws.

Use the scalpel to remove the two back ribber feet on the bottom of the wii, this will reveal two silver tri wing screws. Remove the two black tri wing screws and the two silver tri wing screws revealed on the bottom of the wii.

Use the scalpel to remove the rubber foot that is covering a screw in the top left corner at the back of the wii. Remove the screw using the fine phillip head screwdriver. Then use the scalpel to remove the white sticker covering the screw directly below the bar code on the back of the wii. Remove the screw with the tri wings screwdriver. Then use the fine phillip head screwdriver to remove the screw that is holding the battery cover in place on the back of the wii. This will reveal another screw that you can remove with the tri wing screwdriver.

Remove the front face plate of the wii, be careful because it is still attached to the console by a black and red wire. Disconnect the wires by lightly pulling on it. Remove the wii shell casing by gently lifting the separating it from the internal electronics of the console.

Remove the DVD drive by taking out the four corner screws using the large phillip head screwdriver then lift up the DVD drive and disconnect both power cable and ribbon cabble connecting it to the console.

Turn the disassembled console upside down, remove the two screws holding the DVD citcuit board in place, disconnect the three ribbon cable that are attached to the DVD circuit board, Use the tweezers to free the wires that are still connected to the circuit board from the plastic clips, Lift up the DVD circuit board and remove it from the way, then remove the lens case that is holding the lens ribbon cable in place.

Use the tweezers to remove the lens casing by lifting up on one side hooks that are holding it in place. This will reveal the laser lens unit, Which is held in place by two metal bars. Take out one of the metal bars by first removing the screws located next to it, and then gently lifting up on the plastic tab so you can slide it out.

Remove the laser lens unit and turn it over to reveal a white plastic part held in by a screw. Take out the screw so you can remove the white plastic part. You will need the part to install the replacement lens.

Attach the white plastic part from your old lens to your new lens using the same screw from the old unit. Place the new lens in the console and reassemble The DVD circuit board.

Remove the two solder points located on the lens ribbon by using a hot soldering iron.

Then reverse the process to reassemble the console.

Take care and good luck.
