    I have a DS lite with a broken hinge, and my shoulder buttons don't work (only work if I blow for 2min then works for 15min then I need to blow again) and my touch screen is very bad I touch the middle of the screen but the DS thinks its 2 centimeters to the left of were I am touching tried to calibrate for 1 hour doesn't work. Does the DSi also have these problems since I am thinking of getting a DSi. Does the DSi hinge also brake like the DS lites? What about touch screen/dead pixels, and shoulder buttons.


    (For some reason I don't understand but why does Nintendo make there systems so cheaply everything brakes. I had the PSP phat longer than my DS lite and play it more and the shoulder buttons are perfect (knock on wood))

    1. you need replace the rubber mat under the L/R buttons, if your blow takes no effect.
    2. try screen emendation (personally recommend this tool: DS Clibrate). if the clad layer on the touch screen is broken, sorry i've no idea but get a new one (perhaps you'd like to treat your DSi tender [​IMG]).

    hope a quick recovery for your DSi^^

    The clear silicone case helps relieve the DS hinges and holds it to place you should try getting that. The DSi feels way different than the DSL, its feels slightly larger and the shoulder buttons stick out more than compare to the DSL. The buttons click rather than pop out.

    all of your problems probably stemmed from the broken hinge, which was a major design flaw. Nintendo gameboys are usually pretty solidly built, but if you happened to buy one of the earlier batches of DS lites you could have gotten one with that flaw.

    The DSi is built great. Very solid with no (consistent) errors reported. I love it [​IMG]

    Well you guys thing that all of this won't happen to the DSi because I don't want my future DSi to brake like my DS lite. And I have no warranty on my DS lite. And if I get a DSi most likely I will buy it from a kid in my school because thats cheaper than the stores.

    The first run of DS Lites had hinge issues, this has not been the case with the DSi. I have dropped mine several times and it still has not broken, even the shoulder buttons are much better designed then the previous DS models and even the GBA shoulder buttons are not as sturdy, they are clicky and not soft.
