Replace the volume switch on the DS Lite.

  1. Unscrew the Phillips screw securing the battery cover to the lower case.
    • Unscrew the Phillips screw securing the battery cover to the lower case.

    • The screw remains captive to the battery cover.

    • Pry the battery cover upward with a spudger or fingernail, and lift out of the lower case.

    A Phillips #000 (PH000) seems to give a more secure fit (no slipping) than the stated Phillips #00.

    This will be good for mods

    I'm having a problem getting the screw to unscrew. I have the right Phillips ( it was included with all the stuff I got this) Any tips. it doesn't look like the screw is spinning but i haven't played my Nintendo DS Lite for 3 years.

    • Remove the following screws securing the lower case to the body of the DS Lite:

      • Two 4.3 mm gold Phillips screws

      • One 3.9 mm black Tri-Wing screw

      • One 3.3 mm silver Phillips screw

      • Three 5.5 mm silver Tri-Wing screws

    Not mentioned is to remove the jumper/connector below the word "SLOT-2". Case WILL NOT separate otherwise.

    • Insert the edge of a spudger in between the lower and upper case near the top right corner of the DS Lite.

    • Carefully run the spudger along the right edge of the DS Lite, creating an opening in the process.

    • Continue running the spudger along the backside of the DS Lite until the majority of the lower case has been separated from the upper case.

    Don’t forget to remove the GBA cartridge placeholder before removing the backside

    • Lift the lower case away from the rest of the DS Lite.

    • Pull carefully. Some units are sealed with adhesive, and pulling too hard can damage the power switch.

    When you reassemble, make sure that you have the volume and power buttons in place, and make sure they are in the right position to line up with the switches on the motherboard. If they are not aligned, you risk snapping off the tiny switches on the motherboard (in which case, you are in for some soldering work).

    I should have read the comments first - broke off the power switch because I didn't know about aligning it. No way I can do soldering, guess it's for the dustbin :-(

    Whoops, remembered the power button but forgot the volume slider.

    I'll do it later.

    • Carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the volume switch.
