    Hi
    I was wondering if there is a video tutorial or pictures when you are removing and soldering the on/off switch of the NDS lite?
    Because i broke mine during a shell case replacement procedure [​IMG]
    Thanks for your time

    I don't know if there are any tutorials - try searching.

    Depending on the switch you may find it easier to simply remove the metal cover, (desolder the large pads either side, but not the small ones to he motherboard). Then you can replace the sliding part inside.

    Or you can simply desolder everything and replace the whole switch.

    The first method is more complicated, and you may need some help putting the spring-loaded part together. However the second method risks damaging the actual motherboard connections.
