    hi
    i recently purchased a ds lite second hand. when i got it the lower screen had dark areas (kind of smudge like/ ink splashes) on the left hand lower portion of the screen. the appear to be on the lcd itself. it doesnt affect the game play and you can still see the full picture just slightly darker in places.

    my question is this, is this a fault that can be fixed by replacing the lcd screen? is this hard to do? and any idea how this might have happened (the seller claims it happened during posting but the ds was really well secured in a protective box inside a cardboard box with packaging etc.....)

    thanks in advance

    I think this is what you are looking for http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3175

    that could really only be mishandling of the screen or a faulty unit IMO though, it could have even been a faulty replacement part. his excuse smells fishy to me.

    its not too hard to replace DS parts if you are fairly dexterous
