Nintendo DS Lite Repairs

Nintendo-DS-LiteNintendo released the redesigned DS Lite console in 2006 following the initial release of DS in 2005. Changing the design increased interest in the DS Lite immensely and has become the fastest selling handheld video gaming console in many countries. It is a more affordable handheld video gaming console option than Sony’s Playstation Portable (PSP), though the two do target different audiences.

It has two LCD screens, the lower screen with a touch function to be used with a stylus.

The DS Lite features Download Play, PictoChat, backwards compatibility with Game Boy Advance (GBA) game cartridges and is region free.

Being a handheld video gaming console and highly mobile and portable as well as being able to provide a fun experience for people from a very young age, the DS Lite is prone to many accidents and misuse and consequently damage requiring repair. These include dropping the console, sitting on the console, biting the console (yes!), inserting the game in the wrong way, sneezing on the console and of course playing a little too passionately.

We provide all repair solutions for Nintendo DS Lite. All repair services include assessment of the problem/s, repair or replacement of parts using genuine parts, and post-repair console testing.
