My 2006 DS lite rumble pack has got a problem and every time I turn the console on it starts vibrating to the point of it being scary. Any idea of how to fix it?

My cousin gave me a DS lite with a broken bottom screen and my friend gave me another one with the top screen completely ripped off. As a person who has failed most of my attempted repairs I can say that the DS lite is an easy console to fix, at least the bottom screen is, I don’t think I could do a top screen.

@En_Plantatixons it's no problem! I'd totally recommend watching soldering videos on here either way though and learn about things
En_Plantatixons Vor 7 Monate
@Smallgremlin Gremlin I don't know how to do that. I'm a smol child. Thanks for replying though!

You need to solder in a new one after desoldering the old one from the board

I wanted to replace the shoulder buttons as they are broken. Accidentally also broke off the pin on the powerswitch. Now I have to resolder three switches and I can't even get one of them off because the solder just won't melt for some reason

You've answered a question I was going to ask you, about which console to start with if you're a beginner who's never taken anything apart or repaired anything before. I think a DS lite might be a bit too ambitious for me to start with but I'm definitely going to look for a Gameboy pocket on eBay! I've never owned one of those so that will be a good place to start! :)

Really digging the music vibe. Brings me back to doing ds lite mods back in the day. I've got loads of tips for works on them if anyone needs help. And if anyone didn't know you can use a bottom screen as a top screen for testing although it will throw the screen ratio off a little bit.
You got new lights, You're lighting looks great? Cool video!

Thanks to Roman for sending him those... Lord knows I've been waiting for another DS Lite video. I agree with the screws thing... The last thing you want is to plunge the power light corners long ass screws through the DS shell like me.

So elliot I've just seen a guy restore some really yellowd keys from an old computer back to their original grey colour, and he used a method of boiling them in water with a good ammount of hydrogen peroxide for about an hour and the results were impressive. May be worth having a play and seeing what you can do with a discoloured case? Anyways if it works hope it helps

Excellent job man. Turned out great. I loved the test 😂 I was wondering if you'd ever be interested in trying to make something like JoeBleeps (Instagram) makes, those neon advances. I'd love to see one of those made from scratch!

I was trying to fix my DS Lite but I ended up breaking the power button (not the plastic but the actual part on the motherboard) when putting everything back together. Best way to fix it? Buying a broken console and taking the motherboard or buying the broken part only and placing it on my motherboard?

Just a note, your kind of skipping the actual refurb process here; I at least watch because it's relaxing to watch you fix the machine, but if you just do that as a montage it lessens the impact of that. Less educational, too. Just something to keep in mind.
