    Hi there, I've recently got a bottom half of a ds lite which has been snapped in half off my friend. He says he can't find the top part. Now I've never personally repaired a DS before, but I've repaired plenty of PSPs and know the drill. Also I've got all the necessary tools (inc. a triwing).

    Here's a photo: [​IMG] (Click to enlarge)

    My question is:
    The actual bottom part of the DS looks undamaged ie the hinges are on and nothing is cracked. Would I be able to buy just a top half of a shell or would I have to buy the whole thing?

    I realize that the other parts I'll need is the top screen, microphone and wifi board.

    Is there anywhere you can actually buy just the top?

    Yeah, you'll need a new WiFi cable, microphone cable, top screen and the casing.

    Be warned, the fuse might have blow. You'll have to solder over it if that's the case.
