    Hey all.
    I need an online site where I can sell/trade a defective console.
    I need it to be TRUSTED.
    I don't want to send it and not receive anything back. [​IMG]
    What I want to send in is a DS Lite that cannot be fixed because apparently one of the screws that are deep inside a hole does not have a cross-shape, but a circular-shape. This means that there is no possible way to open the console using basic house tools, so I might as well make use of it.
    Thanks.

    You can sell broken consoles at game shops for a reduced price

    You can sell broken consoles on Ebay. Just make sure you list it clearly as broken in the title, and explain what the issues are.

    The Trading Forum on here is also a good idea.

    is the screw circular (meaning it was most likely stripped)? or hexagonal?

    The screw is a triwing screw, the same they use on the wii.
    You can buy triwing screwdrivers in some local tool shops at times, but generally, just get it offline, cost about £1

    Try ebay and say that it might be fixable
