Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Slot one where the games go somehow was damaged and the teeth in their are now bent out of shape. Is there a way to replace this slot?
I dont like to give you bad news but this is a difficult part to find and replace without some technical knowledge, and even if you get it, i.e. from a parts NDS, and with the technical knowledge, its difficult as this part is surface mounted and have many pins to desolder.
Actually I dont remember how difficult is it to put the pins of SLOT-1 in place by opening the device though you can try that as first option (find some open NDS pictures, the guides are also online everywhere).
You can also use a SLOT-2 (GBA) game cartridge for backups (ROMS) with flash memory as many options are online too but may be dificlt and you may need to do some proccedures as you cant use the SLOT-1 (NDS games).
The other option is to buy a broken NDSL somewhere like ebay making sure the main board works good, as you dont worry about broken hinges, cracked screens, etc. Or last pick, sell it for parts.
