    You could probably send it to nintend, and see if they'll fix it. It may cost you something though.

    I'd say you could but would it be worth it for the price of parts etc? You basically need the whole console except the motherboard and that's assuming it still works. Does the bottom screen power on?

    You could always just buy the screens to test its working and if it is then get the new housing
