SOURCE: ds lite hinge is broken is there an easy fix

beeabe,

I'm sorry to tell you but there is no *easy* fix. If you've had no experience taking apart and assembling a Nintendo DS, I advise you NOT to start with your one and only. It's so easy to rip the LCD cables because they're so thin and you'll have to go buy another.


There are two ways to fix this... Super glue / tape it as much as you can , or send it in for repair or find a local Game repair place.



To fix a broken hinge on a DS, it requires you to disassemble the WHOLE thing. Which sucks when just starting out.

My Nintendo DS top screen is completely blank


you need a new case and top LCD as the cable running through the hinge is fragile and has obviously been broken. Ebay should provide you with spares required and youtube for video's on how to do the job

Lid support broke


Not much info but if you mean the lid on your DS falls backward when opened then one of two things has happened either the small barrel lock in the hinge has broken, this is rare. Or you have broken the hinge allowing the barrel lock to rotate in the case.
The barrel is cheap and a very easy fix by opening the case removing the led lens holder then change the lock. If you have broken the hinge you will need to replace the case, tricky job requiring patience especially when transfering the top screen to the new case. Watch a few you tube instruction videos to get a better idea of whats involved.

My Nintendo ds goes on them off


well, both of you have a broken fuse, and kgould3 has a broken hinge and screen.

1. well, the it is fairly easy to fix a broken hinge, and the screen is a bit tricky, but www.powergamingparts.com has awesome (free) repair guides that are easy to follow and with a little time and patience you can fix that in a jiffy (they even sell everything you need)

2. the fuses, on the other hand are really difficult.
a. you might just want to sell it on ebay and people make a living off fixing and reselling the product
b. if you really want to fix it, then you are going to need to resolder the F1 or F2 or both fuses

if you guys want info on it, just notify me and i will give you the details

Broken nintendo ds lite hinge. Do I send it away for repairs or get a new console?


Nintendo will fix the hinges depending on a few things, first thing would be to determine how the hinges were broken. The hinges are tested before they leave the factory, the only way that they actually break would be because of physical damage/impact. Physical damage is not covered under the manufact warranty so you would get a discounted price depending on if your under warranty or not. Regardless giving them a call and having their techs fix them will be the best bet, not only because you know it will be fixed right and your warranty will start over the day it gets repaired.

Green screen


There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.

It tuns on then turn off the top is half broken


The right-hand hinge has a flex cable going through it from the top LCD screen to the lower portion of the case. The broken top will have allowed movement which tears the thin flex cable. Only solution is a new top LCD screen (eBay).
