DS Lite Wobbley Hinge

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When my DS lite is closed, one side is sticking out and the other side is jutting in. Also, when it's open, the top part wobbles a little bit. Do any of you also have this problem?

It's exactly like in this video: (although it's not my video)

The wobble is irritating as hell, particularly with touch screen games. If you're under warranty, you can send it back to Nintendo. If you're not, prepare to shell out a pretty penny.

They have very weak hinges. Check for cracks around the area.

The warranty expired in August. It doesn't move by itself, but I can wobble it around with my hand. It really isn't that big of a deal, but I'm a neat freak and it bothers me. I want to get the 90$ replacement but my parents think otherwise. They said if it gets worse they'll allow me.

I can't find any cracks, but on the phone a Nintendo employee said it might be an internal crack.

If your a good DIYer, buy a new shell and hinge from dealextreme

Or wait for the DSi and then upgrade at the same time!
