    I'm no expert on DS hardware and the such, but I don't think its repairable short of opening the DS up and fixing the loose connections.

    And how long was your warranty for, it might still be covered?

    If you are careful with it and all the cables are intact you can buy a replacement case and fit that.

    also, next time this should probably go in Hardware rather than game help.

    Why don't you guys just use a crystal shell protection...?
    It really helps protecting the DS... (I don't really think the hinge should break after only ONE year! O_O)
