Nintendo DS - Replacement shell

Okay so I've successfully Re-Shelled two old style NDS consoles now. The only probme I seem to have is that the L and R buttons have very little spring or movement in them. They work, fine. It just doesn't feel right, like it used to - when they made that "tak" noise as they clicked snuggly down into place.

I'm thinking that I need to get my knife out and do a tiny bit of cutting (you always do have to on these new cases) but I'm not sure where to start... Anyone who's done this before will understand where I'm coming from!

- Thanks

    That sit is for the DS lite, and this is just a regular DS. I guess i'm really looking for an answer with someone who has DS-Modding experience

It's not easy at all. My company does repairs on PSP, XBox 360, PS3, Wii, and PS2. But we don't touch DS Lites. The following company will do it for you at a reasonable cost:

They do all of our DS Lite repairs!
Also make sure you get an OFFICIAL Nintendo shell case. Some of the aftermarket ones don't fit properly. The following website sells the shells:

Nintendo ds wont power up


Hey, replacing the covers to a NDS is what I do for a living. Now, tell me, does it power up, then suddenly shuts off after about 2 seconds.? Does it turn on at all? Does it charge?

These are the three questions that I need to know before I can give a proper diagnosis and solution.

Its possible though sometimes it is expensive so dont worth the work.

-Top screen broken: you can buy a replacement and carefully do the work by yourself with the help of a guide (youtube have many) and some tools (3 winding screwdriver is the less common though not much). The foil data ribbon can be bought separatelly for the original NDS though the new NDS lite have it soldered and very difficult to work.

-Broken plastics: a broken hinge means you need to buy a replacement shell. Anyway buy a complete shell from a DS modding shop or take parts from a non broken plastics DS (water damaged one may be good) in a place like ebay. You would be lucky if you find a non broken screens and good plastics DS for parts.

At the end you may be over your repair budget and not only that, you would be very near to buy a new unit with this money. Each one make its own choice.

Good Luck...

Nintendo ds to screen broken


Hi, replacing the original nds upper screen is a fairly straight forward procedure, you need to remove the 4 x small plastic plugs located in the corners of upper screen, then remove the 4 x phillips screws, the top outer back part of the case will seperate and you can gain access to the screen. Firstly remove the small screw holding down the right hand pcboard to gain access to the ribbon connectors, release the larger flat connector by hinging the clip up, slide the ribbon out, underneath you will see a tiny connector, gently ease the small clip back towards the ribbon, prising a little each side at a time, remove the ribbon and then you can prise the screen from the case.
These guys sell the replacement screens www.ps2laser.co.uk prices are very competitive and offer next day delivery!
