    Well, after a year of having it, it happened, but it isn't that bad... I guess I have to stick it with a special glue.

    here there are some pics:

    Does somebody has any opinion in how to fix it?

    EDIT: I stickied it with strong glue, and it has no problem at all at the moment, the only bad thing is that the R button doesn't push... anyone?

    Mine did EXACTLY the same thing.

    You have three choices.

    1) Buy a new DSlite
    2) Superglue it back together. It WILL hold, but it may stick the right shoulder button which is a pain.
    3) Buy a replacement case (like I did) online. Got mine off ebay for about £20 and the store has a link to a thourough tutorial. Took about 4 hours to swap over, and the result is this....

    They sell many different colours, even a clear case. Google for it or PM me and I'll give you the link.

    Thank all of you for your responses, especially captainiff, but my brother bought some really strong glue, and he stickied it, but now the problem is that the R button doesn't want to press, I mean, it is always as if it were pushed...
    He is trying to fix it now, but anyways, I prefer the DS Lite way more than the tank DS.

    And it broke because I left it fell months ago, and it
    was been getting worst.

    no no not glue... =( You used really strong glue on it? Good luck getting rid of that. Captainff probably gave you the best choice there with that replacement kit. Good luck.

    Okay, go ahead and buy one, but dont drop it, and if you do, dont use glue. Dont worry about it.

    You should have just JB Welded it open. The pressure of my canoe and ratchet straps broke my roof rack, JB Weld fixed all my problems for months...until it broke again.

    The only problem it has is the R button, it doesn't want to press

    Once again.........EXACTLY my problem. In the end I had to change the case. using the glue created a problem though. Inside that shoulder is a small, clear plastic part that needed to be swapped into my new case. Lets just say that swearing happened.


    Anyone who is worried about doing the same to their DS should consider buying something like this from ebay. I've only heard good things about them and they add extra strength.
