    Right so well a few months ago when I was moving my DSLite around, I heard a little crack. I looked all around the DS to find out what happened, and found a crack on the right side of where the top and bottom screen meet. My brother's DS broke at around the same place. My DS is still intact because I put a transparent case on it to stop it from fully breaking.

    I might post some photos of the crack later. Anyway what should I do? [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Return it if you still can, or bring it to your local geek shop to get it repaired.

    Is it on the screen or the case? You can order and replace both. There are tutorials online.

    I'm assuming you mean the crack. It's on the hinge of my DSLite, not the case.

    Yes, that can be replaced, but it might take an hour or two.

    You can find some really nice tutorials on Youtube, or even in our reviews section on GBATemp.

    ^ Yes, and I'm sure if you ask around, you can get it fixed - maybe even for free. At least your DSLite doesn't look like this. [​IMG]

    This may be one of those inevitable problems. I've had my DS Lite since 2006 and not a hairline crack even, doesn't mean it's not going to crack (may be a matter of time). I think the best solution is to wait for the 3DS and buy one of those. As long as the material looks as good as seen on the prototypes and features the same hinge design the hinge will last for decades.

    This is the first solution I thought of before I posted this topic. Anyway I think that is about the best solution.

    One would think you'd at least've used Black Scotch tape... [​IMG]
