    I got given a Pink NDS that has a broken hinge as one of my friends got a new one for christmas, it works fine and the screens are in imaculate condition as they have had screen protectors on them from day one. I want to change the cases for a better colour. Can you change the plastic frame's around the screens or will they have to stay pink?

    This is the damage

    Does this mean I need a new hinge aswell and is this the correct part?

    You know that the second on that list is DSi only?

    I had a similar problem, a piece of plastic near the powers lights was chipped off.
    Not only did I have a screen needed to be held up, I also had the trouble of the screen only working at the angle you would normally prop the screen when playing.
    I didn't do case replacement myself but be careful if you're going to replace the case, you don't want something out of place and find out afterward.

    I believe the shaft is not needed.

    Yeah if you get a shaft get one for the DS Lite.

    Also be VERY careful with the power slider when you are putting the case back together.
    I have already broken two and its a hassle to put a new one on.

    Ok thanks guys for pointing that out luckly I have not ordered it yet, waiting for the funds.I am still going to get a new shaft just in case and hope it does not happen again. I got a good tip to stick the switch's in place with tape before putting the botttom case back on so as not to brake the switch. Does anyone know of a case on DX that comes with the screen frames and are they easy to change I dont want any pink on it when I have finished? Will post more pictures when I have finished it.

    If I were you I would either wait for the AK2i flashcart to go back in stock, or buy it else where if you want that.

    Also, I highly recommend getting the microSD(HC) from somewhere else. I can sure you can find cheaper if you can stand to wait.

    I recently replaced my brother's case, as it was broken in the same place as yours. I ordered the screen shaft along with the case but I did not need it, as the one it had was in near perfect condition. This is the case I ordered http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8696 and it came with the screen frames.
