FS - 2 Faulty Nintendo DS Lites £40.00

I bought a couple of faulty DS Lites on eBay recently, hoping that I could fix them. Well I can't, so it's time for someone more competent than me to have a go, or use them for spare parts.

They both have power faults - one was sold to me as not powering up. When I plug a charger into it, the light comes on for only a second before going off, and there's no response if I press the power button. From what I've read, this is either a bad battery (which it isn't, the battery works fine in my own DS) or the screens aren't connected properly (double checked that too), or a fuse has gone (and the common 'fix' for that is to solder over the fuses to bridge them, which I've tried, and it hasn't made any difference).
The second DS was sold as having a broken power switch. So I removed the power switch (the tab had broken off) and gave it the power switch from the first DS, only to discover that it does the same thing as the first DS. Again, I've tested the battery and made sure the screens are connected, but it just won't switch on.

So I would say the motherboards on these are dead. But the rest of the parts should be fine - which leaves 2 sets of screens (2 touch screens, 2 top screens), 2 wireless modules, 2 cases (they're both white DS Lites in excellent cosmetic condition) 2 batteries, 2 dust covers and 2 sets of buttons.

If anyone wants these I'd be looking to recoup as much money as possible, so I'm looking for £40 each for the whole consoles (if you want all the parts), or £10 for a screen or case, £5 for a wireless module or battery.

Alternatively, does anyone have a broken DS (preferably with a broken screen but intact motherboard) that I could buy for more parts?
