Replace the top screen on a Nintendo DS Lite

So, your Nintendo DS Lite's warranty just expired, and yet you've managed to break one of your LCD screens. Now what? You replace it yourself!

If you have time to play video games, you have time to repair your own DS Lite. Just get a replacement LCD screen and watch the full instructions on taking the DS Lite apart and switching out screens. It's cheaper than sending it in to get fixed, plus it gets you some hands-on experience on the inside of your gaming device—not just the outside!
