I wondered if anyone could recommend a good site that they've used for repairing a ds. I've contacted Nintendo and they've quoted a ridiculous amount - £55 for fixing a broken hinge on a ds phat!!! Thanks in advance for any help.

Ebay have a few sites / shops which repair broken ds's. I haven't used one yet but I will be sending one to a shop/site in wales. Hope this helps.

ive got a broken ds as well

Thanks for your help!! Its for my 6 year old - he's decided he wants another ds phat but looking on ebay they're about £40 - £50 second hand which seems ridiculous!!
I've got another broken one which needs the bottom screen fixing - Nintendo were going to charge me £65 for that one!!!

What'sthepoint - I did see you could buy replacement cases but I don't know whether I trust myself not to bodge it up!!!

Mumoftwo - thanks I'll check out ebay - never thought of looking on there for repair services!!!

Magicbeans - there must be hundreds of broken ds up and down the country just sat in drawers.

Thanks for the info - I asked him if he wanted a ds lite instead but he was adamant that he wanted another ds phat!!

My daughter's was also broken but instead of getting it fixed she sold it on ebay (as broken) and got £27 for it (with broken hinge and top screen) - which went towards a new one !

Yep... sell it as broken on fleabay, then stick the money towards getting a second hand Lite off here for the going rate of around £50 ;-)

Far better option id go for if it were me.
