Left Bumper (8/8/2010 12/10/2018 10:24:00 PM)
The "Left Bumper" button on both our older DS and our DS Lite are working intermittently. Very annoying problem, but otherwise they work fine. Can we order this part from you?

Son has a DSI that will charge up but will not power-up? Is this cost effective to attempt repair?

Broken upper LCD screen (8/13/2010 12/10/2018 10:32:00 AM)
We ordered new LCD screen from you. Received it but it's a DS Lite screen instead of DSi. Are they compatible?

Response to Stephanie (8/27/2010 12/10/2018 1:19:00 AM)
Stephanie, If the left/right bumpers are working intermittently, it may be that the metal pins used to provide springiness have become bent, or you may have dirty contacts. If this is a big problem for you, we can replace them. Just search for ds lite repair service.

Response to Johnny (8/27/2010 12/10/2018 1:21:00 AM)
Johnny, When you say it will not power up, do you mean it flashes once, then shuts off, or does it show you nothing at all?

Nintendo Repair Shop - NC
Response to Lisa (8/27/2010 12/10/2018 1:22:00 AM)
Lisa, I believe this situation has already been handled with our customer service. The wrong screen was sent out by mistake, and we have since replaced it with the correct item. Sorry for the initial trouble!

Keith, You more than likely just need to replace your Top LCD screen. We have that product in stock, and we are posting a repair video in the next day. Alternatively, you could send it in to be repaired by our professional staff.

Nintendo DS NTR-001 (10/10/2010 12/10/2018 5:24:00 PM)
No sound. Either from the speakers or from the headphones. Volume is up and sound enabled.

Green light but no screens (10/12/2010 12/10/2018 9:22:00 AM)
My Son's DS Lite will charge but when you power it up the green light comes on but nothing else, no screens top or bottom. I have held the power button for 10 seconds to reset and have removed and reinstalled the battery as well. Any ideas before I decide to repair/replace it?

Re: Nintendo DS NTR-001 (10/14/2010 12/10/2018 4:02:00 PM)
Bruce, This is an odd one. Has it been dunked in water to your knowledge? You may need to replace the sound card. It doesn't sound like a speaker issue if the mic jack isn't working either. We actually have never seen a replacement sound card before, so you will have to salvage one from another system. We do offer refurbished, working DS Lite systems. Just search for DS Lite System on our site.

Re: Green light but no screens (10/14/2010 12/10/2018 4:04:00 PM)
Kevin, This is a quick fix for us. To do it yourself might be a bit tricky. You'd likely need to replace the top LCD although you can't be sure until you test several different things. I'd send it into us to repair for you. Search for DS Lite Repair Service on our site. Thanks!

Won't read new DS games (1/12/2011 12/10/2018 12:58:00 PM)
My son's DS lite can only play game boy games, the new DS games aren't read. Is it worth repairing with parts? Do you sell them?

ds won't turn on (2/12/2011 12/10/2018 12:46:00 AM)

Kelli, Its not the games. Typically when we hear folks say this, we think GBA games only show up on the bottom screen, whereas DS Lite games show up on both. Typically what is really going on is your Top LCD screen is shorted out, and needs to be replaced. We can do this repair for you. Search on our site for DS Lite Repair service.

Carolina, Hello from, well... North Carolina. We can fix this for you. You likely have an internal component that has knocked itself loose. Search for DS Lite Repair Service on our site.

DS lite Won't read games (5/29/2011 12/10/2018 10:21:00 AM)
None of the pins are bent and have cleaned the slot multiple times. It can play gameboy games though. Anything I can do without geting a new one or spending $70+?

I fixed the hinge by myself and the ds won't work (6/2/2011 12/10/2018 11:59:00 AM)
I changed the housing shell by myself to fix broken hinge. I followed all instructions, but when i turned on my ds lite the bottom screen would only turn on for less than a second and turn back off. I dont know if your shop can fix it, or what I can do.

Loose connection? (4/3/2012 12/10/2018 1:15:00 PM)
Hi folks. My son's DSi may be on its last legs, or may just need a little adjustment. Both upper and lower screens have stopped working. Intermittently. I suspect a loose connection, as there is no screen flash when the DSi is turned on (and it does turn on, green light and all). I'm trying to find a schematic, or at least a good photo of the DSi's guts, so I can see if it's anything obvious. Thanx for reading this! All
