Inleiding

This is a guide that teaches how to replace a Nintendo DS motherboard also known as a circuit board.

The Nintendo DS is a video game console released by Nintendo proposing two screens working in tandem with wireless connectivity, and an integrated microphone.

The main circuit board holds and makes all communication between components of the device possible. Therefore, whenever the communication between the functioning components takes longer than expected or there is no communication, replacing the motherboard is a necessity.

The removal of the main motherboard of the DS is essential to access the screens and to replace other imperatives.

The replacement could be done in 10 simple steps.

    • Remove the cartridge from the console.

    • Use a Phillips #00 Screwdriver to remove the screw securing the battery door to the rear case.

    • Remove the battery door.

    • In the images, it shows that the fixer is using a flathead screwdriver. This flathead screwdriver will work just like the Phillips #00 Screwdriver.

    • Use a plastic opening tool or spudger to pry out the battery from the bottom. If a plastic opening tool or spudger isn't available, your fingernails may work.

    • Remove the battery from the Nintendo DS.

    • Remove the seven Y00 screws located on the back.

    • With your hands, pry the back panel off the main case.

    • Separate the back from the front, and set it aside.

    If some of your screws spin free but can’t be removed, it maybe that the screw posts have separated from the shell.

    This makes separating the back panel more difficult, but it will still work.

    The plastic used for the original silver nds may be the most prone to the UV damage that causes the plastic to become brittle.

    • Unlock the two large ribbon cables by moving the black clip up.

    • Carefully pull the ribbon cables down and out with your fingers.

    • Do not use pliers to pull the cables, as they can be damaged easily.

    Benutze für die nächsten Schritte besser einen Spudger und keine Pinzette,

    sonst läufst du Gefahr eines der Kabel oder die Platine selbst zu beschädigen.

    Better use a Spudger, not a Tweezer for the next Steps.

    That minimize the risk to demolish one of the wires or the mainboard himself.
