    Repairing a Nintendo DS

    My daughter is coming over from Portugal today and has just told me that my granddaughter's DS is playing up. Half the screen is missing. Sounds like a dodgy connection. Has anyone any experience of taking them apart?

    Hello

    Ive done quite a few they arent incredibly hard. You will need the special screwdriver to do it. Either get one of ebay or i use the jackly tool kits (6 quid, all screwdirvers will ever need in (so far anyway).

    Taking it to bits is obvious enough. Screws are under rubber feet. My top three tips :

    If seperating the top from the bottom the wireless antennae lead that runs under card slot is practically impossible to get back through afterwards. I just run along top when putting back together.

    The springs for the top left and right buttons will fall out almost guarnteed. I just dont put them back in and never had a problem. Its more wear and tear on the springs of the actual micro switches but so far so good.

    The ribbon cables to me dont go into the ports in the normal way (in my opinion) watch closely when you take them out. You push the tiny lip down to open.


    Good Luck

    There's quite a good youtube tut. I've got the thing now and the problem is the top screen looks like a barcode. Any idea where the problem might be?
