A month or more ago, I attempted to replace my DSlite shell since it had the infamous hinge crack.

Everything was going fine, until I tried removing the ribbon that connects the top screen to the "motherboard".

I didn't unlock the thing, and I think due to that, that's how I screwed up my top screen.

Now, I'm looking into a replacement screen, but I know that to have sound on the device without the need for earphones, I have to solder the ones I have to the new screen.

My question is: DO I NEED TO?

A friend of mine just reminded me that I could just use earphones to listen, but I just need to double check to be sure. I have no soldering equipment, and if I can spend as little as I can towards this repair, I'd be really happy.

I'm desperate, so please someone give me advice or good news at least...

I'm not looking for instructions on how to disassemble/reassemble, I'm looking for advice on just the soldering part. I need to know if I NEED TO solder the speakers on to a replacement screen to get the device to work, or if I can use it without the speakers.

Hey. You will get sound in the earphones without soldering the speakers and your ds Lite will work just fine without the wires. I have been doing this myself.
