    Ok, so I have no idea where to put this, but my stylus got shoved down the slot when I dropped it and I can't get it out... (try to be mature about that)
    so my stylus is this one:[​IMG]

    Wow, i hope you can get it out, I would try using a blade screwdriver or some tweezers, but of course it depends on how stuck it is...

    Get a screwdriver, a flat head one. press against the stylus slowly while applying more pressure as you pry it up and out.

    It SHOULD work. If it is even a little loose tweezers are a better idea if they can fit in there.

    Hope this helps.

    Then go with the screwdriver idea. Tweezers will not fit, most likely.

    I see you have a midnight blue too. Is the console damaged in anyway by the stylus? I suggest if it is under warranty that you get it fixed for free by Nintendo.

    EDIT: NVM. It looked like midnight blue color so I thought it was a DSi XL but it is a Cobalt DS Lite. If you never did it you can register it on Club Nintendo to get a 90 day warranty.

    you can try taking the case off, it's not too hard and you should be able to access the stylus

    but do this at your own risk [​IMG]

    you can use a knife to stick it in the back side of the ds stylus and push it out.

    DO NOT use any sort of oily lubricant. You'll never get it off, one, and two, It needs to be deep in the crevasse to be able to lubricate the part you need to be... well, lubricated, and it WILL NOT if there is no space between the stylus and DS's slot... Not worth it.
