Can this be fixed? Ds prob?

My daughters ds lite has a fault. Both screens work but the hinge is broke and depending on the angel of the screen the screen has lines going down it.. but if you move it the screen is ok and normal like it should be.

Would a replacement housing fix this? or could it be more serious?

No expert, but maybe the connecting data cable that feeds the top half of screen is breaking and causing it to only work properly sometimes when it is lined up. Don't think your doing it any favours keep using it if you intend to fix it tbh...

Thats all I got... Any DS experts...? :)

You can get a replacement case on ebay for under £10 and some come with free triwing screwdriver, The ribbon may be a bit loose so replacing the case and checking the ribbon connections may just cure the problem. I would guess the ribbon's are cheap as well so may be worth buying a replacement for that too.

Or sell it as faulty (possibly make more on ebay then here) and then use the money to buy a working second hand one :)

Thanks :) hubby is good at fiddly things so will get a case and let him 'have a go' :) suppose weve got nothing to lose.
