Question about Nintendo DS Console

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

System error please check nds system date

Remove all game cards from your NDS, turn it ON then touch the small NDS button and set the date. If you still get the same error message, set the YEAR about 2 years earlier (2009).

The other buttons work except fot button A do I need to clean the pads or replace something else


Check the pads from inside your NDS (be very careful opening it!) Clean it and look for signs of wear, such as cracks on the pad. If the A button has a crack, then you will need to replace the pad. I experienced that on my NDS down button. Look for videos on youtube on how to open your NDS.

Error says "NDS file version

You should format you MicroSD card completely (copy all your ROMS and Saves from it first), then drop all the files from the website back on it, replace your ROMS and games, should be good to go.
Just make sure you've got the right software for the right card.

How to open .nds file...

.nds files are Nintendo DS image (usually are from NDS games or homebrew). you need an Nintendo DS and a NDS Flashcart (i.e. M3 Adapter, Super Card, M3 Simply, R4 DS, etc.).This files can be open on an Emulator (i.e. iDeaS, ndsemu, no$gba, etc) but the games don't play successful as sometimes the emulator crash. So it's better to use the file on a Nintendo DS. Source(s):

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.

Broken L button...

If you are confident in taking it apart, just compare the L button to the R button, you should see what the problem is. And since you already have it open it will make it easy to replace what needs to be replaced, which is probably just the L button itself.
