    hello, i have my ds lite pratically abandoned on my desk.....
    and from time to time, sometimes when i come here in the morning the console is blinking (it turned itself on)

    for some time i thought i accidentaly left it ON, or accidentally pushed the switch.. but i had been all day here, and just noticed the console blinking...

    does this happens to anyone else?
    the button seems to work fine, when i shut it off, the button works fine... maybe it has some humidity or needs cleaning but i have the some of the screws plastic almost stripped and didn't want to open the thing again risking it will not close again...

    also, i tried to nudge the button, it's not sensible, normally it doesn't turn ON unless i push the button all the way up

    while i was writing this, the console turned on by itself again lol....

    And you have to be a dick by turning it off, not letting those Yokai play eh?
    I hope you at least save progress for them

    just opened the thing.. damn, i almost breaked the screen ribbons. the ds lite is a mess to open...
    spent like half an hour with the damn sholder buttons, the springs jumped, and i almost lost one
    some screws appear to be already stripped, but they still stay in place so not that bad..

    cleaned the thing inside with q tips and alcohol... and cleaned some leftover glue with the screwdriver and erased pencil marks done at factory lol
    the power button is a closed soldered spring lever thing (while in the ds phat is just a button)
    so i can't clean the power button inside, but i used acohol and q tips around. hope it stays better...

    funny how i alraedy had opened this thing twice years ago, and i still had a plenty hard time to figure it out

    hope the console doesn't turn on again..

    do you think those yokay know that the 3ds is not safe because everyone uses a 3ds to catch them, so they now hide in the old DS console????
