Yes the new shell has this piece it's just not in the photo, it's in a bag not seen in most photos, you can replace this for about $25.00, or use a repair service on ebay

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.

Broken Hinge


There are plenty of replacement cases available from a popular auction web site, if your proficient with a screwdriver and have a lot of patience then you should be OK. Take great care when refitting the top screen ribbon cable (and taking it apart in the first place), the WIFI arial cable is awfully fiddly as it needs to be threaded under the slot 1 cartridge mechanism and finally take great care refitting the bottom case as plenty of people have reported snapping the plastic part of the power switch when reassembling. I reckon a first attempt should take 1-2 hours so clear the dining room table and don't forget to buy a tri wing driver when you get your replacement case if you haven't already got one. Best of luck.

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.

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side


The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!

Nintendo ds hinge fix


Well, you can buy a hinge from a lot of places, but the wire that broke, you are going to have to try and fix the wire, get it connected again so that it will work. The only other solution is that you will have to send it in to get fixed.
