FS: Nintendo DS Lite, Faulty...

... in good condition, and very easy to get working if someone who knows what they're doing has a look at it.

In an attempt to install the stealth version of flashme onto my DS, I managed to brick it, no problem I thought, and booted to safe mode, until I realised that the G6 adapter doesn't actually support recovery mode. Thus I'm left with a DS that I cannot use. When you turn it on you just get a black screen, although anyone with a flash cart that isn't a G6 should be able to boot into recovery mode without any problems. More information on recovery mode can be http://www.dspassme.com/FlashMe.shtml#RECOVER found here . There's a screenshot below showing that it's crashed in the G6 menu, so again, anyone with an alternative flash card shouldn't have any problems recovering it.

It also has a cracked hinge, as can be seen clearly in the picture below, although I've been told personally by Nintendo support that this will in no way effect any sort of functionality and is just there for show when I rang them. The other problem is that you have to press the left shoulder button quite firmly for it to register, I took the unit apart briefly and re-fitted it so it's fine now, but it's worth noting that it might only be a temporary thing, worst case scenario you can just buy a spring and shoulder button very cheaply from Ebay.

Plus points:
+ Boxed, and in good condition, everything is present and packaged nicely.
+ Despite what the above may imply, it's been very well looked after, and has always been kept safe in a Hori case, it's a very clean unit too.
+ It's a DS Lite!
+ The touch screen is in great condition, no scratches and works perfectly.

Negative points:
- It's bricked, but anyone with a flash cart should be able to very easily fix it.
- It has a cracked hinge, which is purely an aesthetics thing, and will not effect functionality.
- It has a potentially dodgy left shoulder button, which I think I've managed to fix, but if not should be easily fixed anyway, as you can pickup cheap replacement buttons.

I'm not sure what I'd like for it, but needless to say it really isn't a lot. Faulty units tend to go for around £50 including P&P on average it seems but I'm not looking for that, maybe £39 including postage wouldn't be a bad figure considering, it has problems, even if they should be easily fixed.

Please take a look at the pictures below, I'd like to iterate the fact I do take very good care of the stuff I own, so feel it's a bit unfortunate it's ended up like this, needless to say it's been well looked after, and again, a bit of time with someone who knows what they're doing and it'll be great again. :)

£25 inc postage and fee's.
Let me know,

Mike..

Another reason to go for a slot-1 solution like CycloDS - no risk of bricking your DS.
#3
Dunno which version is which, I just havent pulled a DS Lite apart and would like to have a poke about and see what makes it tick, I have had my PSP apart many times now, fitted some Blue LED's in the back of it, wouldnt mind doing the same to a DS Lite, this would make a nice test subject :

Can't go as low as £25 I'm afraid Mike, there's a perfect possibility someone with a flash cart could fix this in just a couple of minutes then go trade it in for £67 at Cex, so I think it's worth more for that reason alone :P Plus like I said it's a good unit anyway.

Poppy, I've just ordered a CycloDS for my new console actually, seems quite good and like you said, no chance of messing up the flashing process, but it doesn't support GBA games and lacks a few features so it's not for everybody.

So what would you go to?
I am interested as I said I would like to get it apart and have a look inside for the lulz.If I were to repair it, what kind of flash cart would do it? A friend of mine has the M3 Simply, is that any good?
Am willing to negotiate if you are mate.

Mike..
#7
I'm willing to negotiate, but I'd like to leave it just a little longer in case anyone does offer the full asking price, because in all honesty I believe it's worth more than I'm asking :)

The M3 Simply would do the job just great. The process would be the same as described in what I linked to above; it's basically a case of putting the appropiate file onto the M3 Simply, entering recovery mode, running the file then temporarily shorting one of the circuits, very quick/simple process and then like I said, you'd have something you could trade into Cex for £67 for a tidy profit, plus the chance to play around with the insides a little.
#8
Well, I will think about full price, I would obviously like to haggle, it's in my nature :)
keep me in the loop please as I am now off out to watch some Naruto, be back later.

Mike..
#9
Naruto! \o/

Let me know what you think it's worth, I know £39 may seem a lot for a broken DS (they go for more than this on eBay btw) but you seem like a person who's more than happy to play around with things until they're working, and the great thing about this is it should be so easy to fix with the right tools (M3 Simply!)
#10
What would you be willing to let it go for ?
Dont really wanna pay £39 for something that I might never get working, but will come up on the (slightly:P) low price I offered earlier.

Mike..
#11
Are you including the charger? If so howzabout a nice round £35?
#12
i sold my one with 2 cracked screens for £32 on flea bay 3 weeks ago ...
#13
Cheers welshd1k, I'd like to think mine wouldn't cost anywhere near the cost of two screens to fix, nor anywhere near as much time either, so I think £39 is a good price.

robgoldt, yes it includes the charger, basically every thing that came with it originally. I'll consider the £35 price, but I'll just hold out until tomorrow in case someone offers the full £39 just to help cover P&P, and also I'd like to give Mike a chance to match that since he did mention it first. But yes, I would consider £35 if no one else matches the full price :)
#14
reading the info for "Recovery Mode" on the link provided, the M3 Simply won't work as it's a DS-slot adaptor not a GBA-slot one. Shame coz I have a M3 too...
You need something like the M3 Lite or NeoFlash (I think)
#15
Ah, you're right regarding that version, but I've just asked on GBATemp (great GBA community) and they've said that the M3 Simply and similar slot one devices work fine with FlashMe version 8 - http://wiki.gbatemp.net/index.php?title=FlashMe
#16
I will match the £35 mate, as I am quite keen to get it apart and mess about with it, wanna see if I can (a) get it working and (b) give it bit of a custom light job and generally tart it up a bit, see what I can get it to look llike :P
Let me know please mate, am still out but have been checking back on here every now and again (inbetween naruto :P )

Yes it does! :?
#18
I will offer £35 but arrange courier collection so therefore you wont need to pay postage for it, so technically you will have a few quid more.

Can do bank transfer too to save on PP fees
#19
£35 plus postage costs sounds good thanks, however, getting it collected by courier would be awesome in most circumstances, but I'm at work most days until at least 4 o'clock so it wouldn't be ideal, sorry.

Probably sending it out via royal mail first class (or recorded, I don't mind) would be the best for me.

Well, I am quite up for you using royal mail or what ever, they guarante their standard delievery stuff up to £34 anyway, as long as you get proof of postage from them at the time of shipping.
Just need to say who you would like to sell it to now :)

Mike..

Mike..
#21
Well count me out... I've spent the money that was lying dormant in my paypal account on a pda now :)
#22
What's your preferred method of payment Mike? :)

I'm not sure of the technicalities of BT, but I presume it's 100% safe and doesn't cost anything? If not, PayPal would be fine.
#23

Lol, I am just gonna add it to the CC (if my offer is accepted ) and then when my new Barclays one turns up I can balance transfer it all over for interest free credit : yay!!

Mike..

*EDIT*
blizeh: would have to be paypal, affords me the comfort of added insurance via the CC company as well as via paypal.
I accepted a paypal fee for £50 last week and they took £1.90 out of it, so it's not a huge chunk.
