    I have an old Nintendo DS(Crimson Black) and whenever i turn it on it plays fine for a while but then it freezes, after a while of this happening i noticed that it only happens when a little pressure is put on the bottom right part of it, is there a way to fix it, i am getting a triwing screwdriver from shoptemp in a few weeks and i want to find out if there is a way to fix it.

    EDIT:Here are Some Images taken from my phone, i think they are too dark though

    What game are you playing/with what flash card? Does it do it with every game?

    Maybe something is out of place on the inside then. When it freezes, exactly how much pressure are you applying? Like enough to feel the case smoosh?

    atually if i press on the nds a a little bit on a flat surface on the bottom right part of it it freezes, it also happens if it shakes, that's why i chose to get a screwdriver to open it up and see it, but i don't know what to do once i get it

    Post pictures, and hopefully it'll be clearer to us [​IMG]
    It sounds like there's a loose connection somewhere.

    Have you tried removing both games (DS and GBA) before switching on, and then replicating this? Because the DS does freeze if you remove the game whilst it is turned on... so it could be related?

    The cart is probably not making good contact. Try the paper trick. Link

    I don't know about fixing it but how about just giving up and buying a new one ? I don't know how can anyone even enjoy their DS when it's in a condition like that - freezing or not. 69 bucks for a refurbished DSL from gamestop doesn't seem too bad .. Or 99 for a new one.
