Opening up the nintendo ds is not that difficult, there are a lot of movies on youtube showing you how to. Just open up the ds with a tri wing screwdriver (you can buy it for a dollar or 2 at or ect...) and take the button out and put it back in place.

How can i get the NEW button repaired on ds olympus dig.recorder?

If you press the new button and it doesn't start a new file it is possible that the little microswitch is broken from the circuit board. I have repaired about 10 of these on ds-4000's If you have patience and can use a soldering iron it is possible for you to repair it yourself. You have to take the back cover off first and then the front cover. Then you can take the function knob off. All of these come off with removing little screws,from each assembly. This will get you to the switch and you can look at it to see if it is broken from the circuit board. If it is broken from the board(usually 1 leg of the switch ) you can resolder it to the circuit path. All you need is a small needle point soldering iron and some thin solder. You may find these at a Radio Shack near you. Or
You can also sedt it to Smoltz business products they repair these models. I do not know what they charge but they are very good at repairing these units

My "L" in my ds lite is broken

If it is just the plastic bit that is fairly easy to fix. here is the disassembly guide and you can get parts off ebay etc.
If it is actually the button on the mainboard that is damaged that requires some fine soldering, but still repairable.

The on off switch is broken can this part be

Yes, you can buy them of ebay, they are not very expensive.

If you have good soldering skills then it is possible to desolder the switch and resolder the new one on. Take your time, it is a bit fiddly and dosent give much space to work with, a very thin tipped soldering iron would be your best bet.

There are some good videos on youtube that run you through how to take the ds apart, you will need a small philips and tri-wing screw driver.

Broken ds

If your D-Pad is broken, send it into Nintendo for a fix, for an amount of money though. Go to thier web-site at, select your country, then hit customer support, then find thier 1-800 number.
Good Luck!

Hinge problem

There out it is nothing like a broken hinge only repair solution, the only way to get it repaired is to buy a new replacement shell and replace the broken parts or the whole shell, but some cheap shells wont last and will broke again so read reviews. And if you are not too skilled be careful when replacing or you can get your DS more damaged.

The best is to find a good case broken DS, like water damage etc. to get only the original plastic parts. I should love to have to buy only the broken parts needed but you have to buy the whole thing.

Power button loosely slides

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.
