    I recently discovered that my DS's right hinge is broken. I took it into game stop and asked them what I should do and I was told to "super glue it". I have checked the nintendo web site also. I just need some help! I will attach some pictures to further explain. IMG_2224.JPG

    As he said, he costs more because of the custom super-paint. One of the hinges on my Lite has a crack in it but it doesnt matter. It still flips fine without trouble.

    My Hinge still opens properly but I have to be VERY careful with it. I was also thinking of upgrading to a lite with game stop's deal of trading in you old ds paying 79.99 and getting a lite. But I don't think they will take it in the existing condiditon.

    What about something like this? Would that work? It's called a shell and can be obtained for about 10-15 dollars. dsshellrd4.jpg

    lol! I think that super glue would be better than duck tape. :lol: I want to really fix it!
    Oh it came in red because it was mario kart edition.

    As I said It does bother me. I would like to trade in for a lite. Also I don't want to damage it farther.

    It sound like quite a few people have broken hinges could it be a defect?
    Or is it the tipe of case we keep it in?
    I keep mine in one like this.____> ndsliteleathercase01.gif
