I've had my nintendo ds for 1 year a all of a sudden my hinge broke i ignored it and then 2 weeks later a wire sticking out broke as well since then when i switch on my ds lite it goes off in 3 seconds
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.
Not a solution, i'm carrying on to another questions
Wait, i dunno if this worth tryin n may take it somewhere that deals with these but my ds hinge broke 2day but not fully its cracked n now my ds is flimsy n not tough 2 open anymore sadly i was wondering if a new hinge would do the trick n make it as good as new, it works perfectly fine, its just the hinge being well flimsy n it looks like the thing is gonna snap any second
or shall i just save up n buy a new 1 n a case 2 protect it
My sons ds hinge broke and i taped the console, he removed the tape and eventually he broke the cable and the black wire. we bought another case and a new cable and replaced them both and now the ds only flicks on then goes off. we assume its the wire,as its a small coaxial one,we soldered it together. it charges fine but wont power up any more,we have tinkered with it so many times and cant get a result. I am currently trying to find a repairer to look at it. I dont recommend repairing it yourself to save money, put the money towards a repairer.

This means you've got a WPA/2 security connection on your router/access point, whereas the Nintendo DS only supports WEP or open encryption.
1) change your security from WPA to WEP on your router
2) Purchase a used nintendo wifi stick
3) Set up a second router or access point with WEP security specifically for your DS
There are 2 thin wires that run along the inside of the spine that clip onto two connectors on the mother board - one is the microphone. It sounds like this has become dislodged. Unscrew the back and check if one of the two wires is loose. On YouTube there is a great tutorial for "how to repair Nintendo DS Lite touch screen by supermodchips that explains very clearly where this wire should be. Good luck
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.
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.
