    Hardware NDS Lite Repair - orange charging light flashes for a second when plugged in

    I've known fuses to blow on DS Lite's from something as simple as it being sat on or dropped, I believe the bottom screen slightly moves causing the motherboard to short which is why I would recommend testing the board out of the shell first and if you replace fuses etc again test it out of the...

    DSi restoration / repair. SMD elements values needed.

    Would it not be easier to buy a second hand motherboard from eBay? or a donor DSi? it seems pretty easy to find these in working order with a broken hinge these days.

    Gaming Dsi xl top screen riboon cable broken or not

    I would guess that the top screen originally wasn't working due to the part of the flex that I've circled in yellow. The part circled in red looks like someone has accidentality damaged it while trying to remove it.

    Gaming DS Lite - weird Touchscreen issue

    If a touch screen has had too much pressure placed on it, they become stuck down in certain positions, this stops other buttons from working, disconnect the touch screen while leaving the bottom screen connected, power it up and if the buttons work the touch screen is the issue.

    Covid-19 vaccine

    I'm undecided because I don't trust the rollout here in the UK. Personally I feel the priority for the vaccine should be hospital staff, police etc and key workers. Hospital staff = get close to Covid-19 every day. Police = go to break up parties which are attended by Covid is a hoaxers. If...

    Gaming DS Lite power button stopped working, what can be done?

    In the UK there was a guy who was selling use but working Nintendo DS Lite motherboards for £6 on eBay last year, I would suggest seeing if you can find a cheap second hand motherboard in your country, if you can't find any, my next suggestion would be buy a faulty complete console, in the UK...

    Gaming DSi XL has darker pixels on edge of screens.

    I would guess any of the following... It's just a well used console. It's had its screens replaced with 3rd party screens. (probably not as both your screens have the same issue) It's been wet at some point. To check for water, remove the battery cover, lift out the battery and there is a...
