    well it happened... left hinge had a crack after a month, but a year later... the right hinge just snapped off. now the top screen is separated from the bottom (on the right side)

    warranty is over by 1-2 months.

    i know there are shock cases, but for $30usd + shipping just isn't worth it. is there a cheaper alternative? on Dealextreme they sell DS fat housings for 7$. but none for ds lites.

    i also checked ebay, cheapest i could find is 19.99+9.99shipping from HK.. which could take up to a month.

    maybe someone out there knows a place selling ds lite shells for ~$10? [​IMG]

    whoever designed the dslite is an idiot.

    happened to 3 of my ds lites

    you should do something about it because soon the wire connecting the top and bottom would get weaker and then your screen would get fuzzy. soon it would just turn black and you ds lite would be useless.


    i freaken hate the right henge there soo weak! its one of the ds lite's biggest flaw imo.
