Is my DS Lite’s hinge frozen?

Hello, I have followed the guide to repair my lower screen and figured I would repair the broken hinge while it was apart. I glued the casing back together but when I put the hinge back in and go to align it to put in the screws, it breaks the housing/glue again. I’m thinking my hinge is frozen and that’s what’s breaking the housing?

When I try to turn the silver piece of the hinge, I get no movement. I don’t want to try lubricating it without knowing if that’s what it needs? Or if it would be better to try to get a replacement piece.

This is a common issue with the DS Lite’s I’m affraid…

The hinge should be fine, it’s most of the time always the housing which breaks at that point where yours is broken.

I always replace the housing of the console and this will fix it.

That’s what my research has found, that this is common and for about 6 years (‘06-‘12 I think) Nintendo would fix it for free. I was trying to repair it without ordering new parts. The fact that I can’t get any motion out of the hinge itself is what makes me think that’s the problem.


Yes. The hinge won't do a thang when the housing is broken. You could glue it.. But as it will move over the time, the glue won't hold it.. You could use tape and see if it works, but it won't be easy to let the tape do it's job.. I'm sorry.
