    well i got it in rapidshare and a rar cause i didn't want to crate a photobucket account

    There are two images: http://rapidshare.com/files/177323072/Dsphotos.rar.html


    Also upper screen is always blank with no image just plain white, and sometimes there's a snap sound,

    If you want more pictures just ask

    Can you just put the photos in the post for us instead of a Rapidshare link? :|

    Nintendo will charge you $70+ for that kind of repair. If you are too lazy to actually do anything yourself and don't wanna spend any money, then just buy a new DSPhat from your local game store for cheap.

    If you just buy a new case and a new cable (the one between the two halves of the DS) you can repair it... But it's quite difficult if you haven't done something like that.

    I have recently replaced my case with one from DealExtreme. It wasn't expensive at all, and my DS Phat looks like new now. The cable that broke for you is the one that's used for the top screen. If you disassemble both the top and bottom part of the DS you can simply replace the cable. Replacing the entire case requires more work, but you probably won't mess anything up to bad.

    I really recommend trying this. If you buy a case replacement, a triwing screwdriver and a new input part for the touch screen your DS will feel like new, and it won't cost a whole lot.
