firstly send her to bed, naughty little girl, then wait calmly till the morning and claim on the house insurance, two days later nice new ds and a old one for spare parts

nintendo repair them for £55 but they take ages i had to wait a month to get mine back but it's probably cheaper than the excess will be on your insurance

Nah dont anna claim insurance £55 a bit steep. it feels like maybe the ribbon got loose or sumfing?
Maybe ill try repair myself

our insurance excess is zero, most are nowadays

Whenever I see 'FLICK' - I can't help but see a rude word :lol:

You can buy a replacement LCD top screen from Deal Extreme for about $10 - ]http//ww…161 (that is for a DS Lite, they also do phat DS screens)

You will also need the tools to open up the DS - ]http//ww…905 - only cost $1.50

There is a guide here to replacing the screen - ]http//ww…te/

WIll cost you about £8 in all - plus a couple of hours of your time, and possibly a lot of patience. But it can be done......

Best of luck :thumbsup:
