3DS XL Hinge Repair

Posted 27th Jul
Does anyone know of anywhere that will repair a broken 3DS XL hinge? I’ve seen a few places online, but they’re almost as expensive as just replacing the console.

Seen a place called consolewizard.co.uk that will do it for £50 which isn’t too bad. Just wondering if anyone knows somewhere cheaper.

I could try myself, but replacement housing costs about £25. Plus tools. Plus time. Plus massive potential of causing further damage. So if I can get it done for not much more, I’d rather do that instead.

I can also see a stress mark on another 3DS around the same area (right side hinge), so that’s going to break at some point as well. Does anyone know if there is a way to prevent this?

This is for “old” 3DS XL.
