Hi

Does anyone have the patience to refit a new housing on a DS Lite (hinge cracked) and also an Xperia play. Please contact me with prices:)

Hi Roy

Thanks for your quick PM. I will take some pics of the units in the morning but here are the links to the housings for both:

This is a video on how to replace the housing on DS lite - there is a common problem of broken hinges - I dont know if there is a permanent fix:

It might be cheaper for me to order the replacement housings direct to your address and then send the units?

i've done a few of the ds lite in the past and they are quite fiddly with the top screen ribbon (you have to loop it through a small ring on the hinge) but if you take your time its easy enough to do. I'm sure you're in good hands with Roy :)

Done about 300 DS Lite re-casings in the past (had a little business going for a while back in the day). Can offer my services if you need them.

Scrappy - There is definately a method to the top screen ribbon, the key is not to be too "careful" believe it or not.

I dont have the patience for fiddly things like this so I prefer someone who knows what they are doing to do it for me!

Hi Simon. Thanks for your response. Roy will be doing both the phone and the DS lite however I appreciate your reply. I know the DS lites arent worth much now but this one is my original one and its a shame to leave it as it is.
