    My DS is pretty much... Dead. Just today, was playing Big Bang Mini, then suddenly, the screen had lines. And it was darker than the touch screen... Bleh. I was scared it wasn't gonna work anymore. Turned it off, then turned it on again. Lines were still there. Just left it there and never played it for about 1 hour. Then played it again, and it was gone.

    So anyway, the hinge is pretty much, fully exposed. And it is getting lose... Don't wanna risk it breaking anymore (The one beside the power indicator thingy). The power light thingy... Like where it shows it is on and off, if it is charging or dying, look at the opposite side... That's where the ribbon cable is now visible... L and R button work sometimes... But most of the time, don't work. Now I am seriously, deciding to replace the case... And if I am not sure I should do it yet or not, I will ask a professional... Hopefully, it can be someone in Canada or something... If not, someone in GBAtemp.

    I was here to ask if I can use these parts to replace my DS case/housing.

    Case #1 I don't have any plans of mixing 2 cases... Just wondering if they are any good.
    Case #2 } That's all.
    Case #3

    Cross + Tri-wing screwdrivers
    Precision Knife (Looks like a hobby knife to me xDD)
    Mini Long Nose Pliers
    [Can't find a good 0.5mm or 1/16th flathead screwdriver at DX. So far, only a 1/32...]

    So yea... That's what I found... Tell me if I am missing anything important or where I can find a 1/16th flathead screwdriver. Thanks ^^,

    You have my permission son >)(jk) i personally don't like transparent ones, so i'd go for the 1st one, if not try the TWEWY one(its silva:O) and imo, Dealextreme is very slow(hoping my ak2i comes [​IMG])

    Awesome ^^. That Flat Head is optional anyway... I might as well just use the one I have... 1.4mm I think... Closest thing I could find to the 0.5mm Thieves Like Us recommended to get.

    The TWEWY one is... Nyeh. I didn't really like the silver-ness... Not much people would know where the logo came from, but it is okay... So might still decide on which one.

    I already know that DealExtreme ships slow... And also read that you should order things seperately... But, I don't think my parents would want multiple things ordered off of DealExtreme xDD

    Actually DealExtreme's policy is to ship items separately if they don't have one or more of your items in stock.

    Those transparent cases, the blue and the totally clear ones... do they include everything now? Like the bit that covers the LEDs on the hinge? I'm thinking of buying a damaged DSL on eBay that's missing the bit covering the LEDs, so I kinda wanted to know if those cases have that part [​IMG]

    I'm going to mix and match the blue and clear ones.

    Mhm... But everything I chose is in stock xDD. If all of them are in-stock, do they come in one big package or do they come in separate packages?

    And for the clear cases, as far as I know, they come with all the parts... The only thing that sucks is that the blue one's screen border thingy is white so it doesn't really match the case itself... Unlike the clear one, it has everything and the white sorta goes with the clear case.

    Clear ones are so distracting. I need a nice opaque casing. Considering you have a DSlite there's a plethora of nice cases you could get including the Zelda Triforce Gold one (if I had had a DSl I would have gotten that lovely piece)
