    after having my DS lite for a year+ and this happened
    sry tat i do not hav a actual pic coz of my bad camera tat shot a perfectly fine dsl instead

    from what i found on the forum there is no similar post so i'll just have to ask it myself

    it a crack right between the light bar n the middle long bar a you can see from the pic....a tiny horizontal line
    it will widens if i opened my DS to 85+ degrees (as how most ppl playing with) n closes it back....
    the gaps remains widen only if I open it to its maximum(90 degree) n closing it...the gap is back to a line

    I tried to glue it but I don't think that will fix it
    I have a protective casing on it and I think that will help to secure it better...prevent it from getting worst...
    So is this crack a start of major broken hinge???? or just a minor prob????

    Well I actually had this crack last year. Nintendo replaced it cause to them "Tightening it to much".

    if you actually did this [​IMG] then they won't replace it.

    I was in luck bcuz they weren't replacing "Hinge broken" DS's anymore so good luck to you.

    Hope this helps

    First off, a protective case over it won't help it.

    I would recommend getting a whole brand new shell.

    But any crack in the hinge is a somewhat major issue. You have to be more gentle with it over time.

    I wouldn't take it so lightly. Get a new shell asap.

    Firstly, it depends on your source; there are a number of different materials that crack can be cut with, and there's no easy way to find out what the crack you have is cut with. Assuming your batch is in OK condition, one of the common side effects of smoking crack is paranoia, which could prove risky depending on where you are. Also, your dopamine levels will rapidly plummet after use, so you could finish up feeling depressed; additional hits have diminished returns, because your dopamine levels need to be replenished before you can repeat the same high. This could lead to taking larger and larger hits, which is really never good for you, and could have effects on your respiration or even result in cardiac arrest. I recommend not smoking crack.
