    Broken DS Lite

    the hinge is broken and it doesnt turn on. a few places will repair it online. prices around £35. is this the best deal. or can u reccomend a good company with a fast turn around time?

    If hinge is broken it'll need a new replacement case.

    If it doesn't turn on then there's a good chance the ribbon cable is damaged going to the top screen.

    Both new case + new screen together is no more than £20.

    Job involves soldering the speakers and stripping the DS down completely.

    £35 aint a bad price, but to be honest if you take the £35 and sell the ds which you probs get £35 for, you can get a new one if you add a couple more quid, this time gets from argos and take out 3 yr replacement cover

    That would sort out the broken hinge but you need to see if the ribbon cable is damaged at the hinge going to the top screen as you may need one of those too if it doesn't power on.
