The battery connectors (socket) on the mother board are extremely fragile, so care should be taken to avoid breaking them.

Other than this, the instructions given are precise and straighforward. I do agree with the other comments about step 20.

  • Remove the screws securing the motherboard to the upper case:

    • A single 2.5 mm silver Phillips screw

    • Four 3.7 mm black Phillips screws

the battery connector was (for me) extremely hard to remove. I broke the socket completely off the board hand had to hard solder it directly back.

Rohan Grant-Dawes - Antwoord

On Step 17, I only had the 3 black Philips screws on the left to remove.

  • Using the flat end of a spudger, flip up the retaining flap on the upper display data cable ZIF connector.

  • With the pointed end of the spudger, pull the upper display data cable from its connector on the underside of the motherboard.

  • The motherboard is now free from the upper case.

This step is unnecessary. The ribbon is a total pain in the butt to get back in, and if you dont get it PERFECT, the DS will not even fire back up. Unless it is absolutely necessary to remove it... DON'T !!! ( Personal experience, Everything else was SPOT ON) THANK YOU FOR THE HELP, saved me a lot of $$$

Completed, worked perfectly! I agree with the comment about step 20, completely unnecessary.

Fantastic! Fixed my daughter's irreplaceable DSi XL - you should see her smiles!! Not sure about step 20 I did this before reading the comments (guess there's a message there). Thanks so much whoever wrote this - you're a legend and you've made a child very happy (and a dad too thereby).

I put mine back together for my daughter with the new bottom screen, but it won't power on. It tries but won't I'm assuming that this ribbon is the cause.

bigdrum1998 - Antwoord

The instructions are perfect though! Great thing to have these instructions it's a tremendous help! :-)

bigdrum1998 - Antwoord

YHWH is the god of all knowledge. Put a piece of transparent tape on the ribbon cable to give more leverage to pull the cable up to slide it into the slot. Also turn the motherboard slightly so that you can get it closer to the cable.

Deanna Cortez - Antwoord

I didn't get mine completely reinserted at first. The symptom I experienced when powering it back on is the power light comes on briefly and the bottom screen light flashes, then they both shut off. No flash from the upper display. Had to try reinserting 3 times before I had it in completely. I agree, DON'T REMOVE if you don't have to.
