    I have been trying with my triwing screwdriver, but they just wont come off... the crossheads will but the triwing ones are staying put :/ any ideas?

    P.S. don't fancy buying a machine/kit to do it.

    Maybe you need to un-screw counter-clockwise?

    Have you already dis-assembled once?

    I dis-assembled my new ds lite (bought 1 year ago) but not this one, this one is just being annoying.

    Then try Harder... Harder and harder... It will eventually unscrew if nobody tightened it...

    Thats bad... Very bad... That could mean that its broken and the only way you can unscrew it is:
    -Don't push on it, just turn it...

    As shown on example:

    Well see now we have an issue, I kept pushing and the lower casing split, then cracked and has now fallen away, some white thing has come off and it doesn't turn on anymore
