    I've recently been trying to hunt down a Game Boy Micro, the cheapest one I could find + shipping had malfunctioning L and R buttons as well as a broken speaker.
    I've already ordered a couple of new shoulder buttons from here http://www.dx.com/p/repair-parts-replacement-l-r-buttons-switches-for-sp-nds-pair-45106#.VIoCSjGsWao, and I guess that afterwards it's a matter of soldering these 2 in.
    But so far, I can't find anything regarding a replacement speaker. I've checked the unit and the speaker is completely busted, so it's not a matter of loose connection or something like that.

    I've seen this: http://www.dx.com/p/008-c-11-inner-...o-ds-lite-ndsl-black-pair-275205#.VIoDJDGsWao, those are DSLite replacement speakers, but seeing as the Micro and the DS Lite share a lot of the buttons/etc., I'd assume that it would work, but I'm not so sure.

    I've also seen this: http://www.dx.com/p/repair-parts-re...er-set-for-ndsi-dsi-2-pack-32881#.VIoDDTGsWao, those are DSi speakers, which i've heard are louder.

    Anybody have any exprience in this stuff? I really want to fix the GB Micro up. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I'd also like some help in replacing the shoulder buttons.

    The speakers listed doesn't look the same as the ones in the DSL / DSi. The only way your going to get parts for your micro is to buy broken micros and salvaging parts from those.

    Now that I think about it, They sure do look like the GBA/DS Phat speakers.

    I have two Micros, one perfect, one with a broken speaker (I should check it, because I think it's just a loose/broken wire). If it's more than a wire, I'd be interested in knowing how to replace it.

    I don't think that the GB Micro uses wires for the speakers.

    Hrm. Most of the time that micro only has sound in the headphone jack, but once in a while the speaker works, hence the wire theory..

    You won't find any wires in a GBM except for the flat flex-cable connecting the D-pad board with the "motherboard" and the wire to the battery.

    The Micro speaker is smaller than the SP one.

    Buy a broken one from ebay and scavenge it for parts. Nintendo won't sell you anything listed as EOL (End of Life) products.
