    My screen like exploded, one minute it was just fine, then I opened it up to play some pokemon and the screen had a huge crack in the inner part of the screen. Nothing was near the DS at the time, so I was annoyed. And that sucks.

    I wish I knew what made my screen explode, but eh, life goes on. Now I have a sleek Tri-Force DS Lite [​IMG] So life is good.

    I just wanted to replace my faulty and scratched touch screen, but now I don't see any reason not to just replace the top screen as well as it is also not in perfect condition.

    Thanks a ton mate!

    The top screen will be fine, it's the film over it that is scratched.

    The translucent cases from DX are really great, fit together nicley just like the original.

    Shipping from DX on the otherhand is the problem.

    Many thanks for your videos 'supermodchips' - I have just replaced a top screen and fitted new casing on an ndsl and if your help wasn't there I might not have even attempted the task!

    Tips for others...WATCH the relevant videos MANY times to get accustomed to all the parts involved, particularly the tricky bits! NEVER apply too much force on any step - if you feel the need to force something, step back and make sure you're doing it correctly.

    The biggest problem I had was with the L shoulder button - I presume it was a design fault in the new casing but I got there eventually.

    Thanks again 'supermodchips'!!!

    Awesome videos, I know it's too late to fix now, but for replacing the DSL top screen in the beginning with the tools mentioned, you forgot to mention the need for solder / soldering iron.

    Hopefully not a stupid question but is this for the NDS Lite? or a XL or LL or whatever they're calling them in australia.

    What's a triwing screwdriver and where can I get one? (Where did you get your scalpel?)

    What's wrong with the modchips website, URL doesn't work.. I wouldn't mind giving this a go with the dead DS.. What's the link to that other tutorial as well?

    Don't mean to be nooby or anything but what's the difference between a bottom screen and a touch screen?
