Finally a reason to get a DS Lite! (at least for me...)

Ouch... I swear I didn't do it on purpose.... =(

P.S.: This DS had already survived intact a trip to the toilet too...

Join the Pat club.


Just so you know.

Nintendo will replace that for free if it is still under warranty.

I know they say they won't fix cracked screens but they do!

Seriously? Damn! I mean.... that's awesome!  ;D

I'm pretty sure it's still under warranty since I just bought it last christmas. So what did you do, just called them and then sent it over?

Go to www.nintendo.com and look for the repair section (It is there, look around).

Make sure you have an account and that your DS is registered. I am not sure if it will work the same for you because I had had mine registered the day I got it.

Anyway, follow their directions and if you get to the shipping stage send your DS away!

Its simple, just follow what the site says. Except, where it says to send 75 bucks, don't send anything.


The worst thing they can do is send it back and demand 75 bucks for the repair, to which you can say "I will just get a DS LITE!".

It was during a day I was at home incredibly sick... I was wearing some new pants I had just gotten for christmas. I closed my DS putting it to sleep and went to the bathroom to get some business taken care of... When I got up from the toilet all I heard was a "clunk" as my DS fell straight off my pocket. I fished it out, and opened it up just in time to see the two screens sizzle off.

A week later after fully drying it, opening it up and cleaning every single nook and cranny on it I had a like new DS with a nice lemony scent. =D

I accidently put too much screen cleaner on my DS when I was cleaning the touch screen, and the touch screen was completely damp and greyed out since the cleaner got under the screen. Luckely, after a few days of drying it out, it was like new again! Touch screen still works perfectly and everything!
