    I gave my DS lite to my now 5 and a half year old son about 18 months ago. Admittedly there were some cracks in the case hinges when I gave it to him. The current repair list since stands at:

    2x complete shells - both replaced due to the right hand hinge breaking off completely.
    1x touch screen - replaced as the original would no longer calibrate.
    1x touch screen ribbon cable connector - the original broke when replacing the touch screen so I installed a modified version which is a lot stronger and easier to use. [​IMG]

    I've opened up both my DS and DS Lite and neither to much success.

    On my DS Phat:

    I opened it up to replace the shell except when i put it all back together again the screens just blink and go off. Any ideas?

    And my DS Lite

    I opened it up to replace the touch screen (forgot screen protectors in the first weeks) and when i put it back together the top screen was dull and had small blinking lines? Would replace it but i really don't want to try my hand at soldiering.

    I'm getting a DSi this weekend hopefully, so I might try to repair them at some point.

    So:
    0x repairs
    1x broken DS Phat
    1x half broken DS Lite

    I think I might be out of the running [​IMG] .

    left of the pond
    this sounds like the ribbon cable for the upper display got crushed and/or slightly torn.
