Last week I ran over my laptop and had to order an LCD for that, now this morning I was hurrying to get my stuff in the car to goto school and accidently dropped my DS onto my gravel driveway. Ive dropped it out there before, but this time it landed flat upside down. I'm at school now and turned it on on my break, and at the bottom of the top screen theres a black circle, and cracks coming out of it. Its still playable but i'd like to know where I can buy a new LCD from?

I used to have a fat DS and it lasted forever, never broke until I took it apart. I guess I blew up the board on it bc the fuses were good, but that was a whole nother thread.

THanks

Wow...it just best to get another DSLite; before you do that ask Nintendo how much does it cost to fix it. If the repairs are over 40 bucks plus shipping then just get another one.

you can pick up replacement LCD displays for the DS lite from dealextreme.com for about 10-11usd apiece (or a set for 19usd)

upper display:
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.26585

lower display:
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.26582

upper and lower display set:
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.27184


when you replace the upper display, you'll need soldering skills to desolder the speakers from your original display and move them to the new one. if you feel uncomfortable performing this repair, shoot me a pm and we can work something out.

Why should he just buy a new one? Repairs are definitely going to be the cheaper option. I don't understand your logic.

Thanks for the info! I work at a repair center so if Im not capable of doing it, there are people there that do soldering and repairing boards all day, so they can probably do it.

Yeah,repair is way cheaper then a new one. But newer is always the better option.

What do you mean by ran over your laptop?

Anyway I have a laptop and a backpack for it (it's padded all around except the sides) I dropped my bag on the floor one day and when i took out my laptop my hinge was cracked (heheh funny it's like my ds lite) So i had to pay $53 to get back and front part of my laptop screen case and replace it myself
