What to do with a Nintendo DS

Somebody gave me a nintendo DS for free because it had a broken top screen. Using the power of instructables I replaced the top screen and now have a perfect Nintendo DS. Problem is...... I never play video games, I have no use for a DS. Anybody have any good ideas of things to make with a Nintendo DS.....either using the DS as a whole or savaging it for parts?

Nintendo DS lite - bottom screen shows only top half (bottom half mirrors top half).

However, touch items on bottom half (that I can't see) still work, e.g., settings. Recalibrating touch screen does nothing. Do I need a new touch screen, LCD screen or both? Or can I fix this another way?

why is the NES better than the SNES? Answered

I just wanderd why the NES is better than the SNES although its older??? if anyone agrees with me on this then pkease could you say why you think so. in my opinion its because it saved the gaming industry (from atari) and the controller is so simple to use and it had more epic games than the SNES.

Nintendo DS / Original Game Boy Mod

Don't know if anyone ever thought about doing this. I searched the site and didn't see anything like it so I thought I would put the idea out there. Just wondering what people thought about the prospect of modding an original Game Boy to be the shell for a Nintendo DS or DS Lite. I personally think there is enough room to do. I would try to do it myself, but I just don't have the techinical know-how or a spare DS.

My Nintendo DSL upper screen is very dim/very dark compared to the bottom, so I replaced it. However, it is still dim.

So I dropped my NDSL about a month ago and it would not power on. I took it apart and figured the L2 fell out of place. So, I soldered it back on and everything seemed OK, except that my upper screen is now totally darker (perhaps one-half or less than one-half as bright) and very difficult to see. It's almost impossible to play games like Final Fantasy IV or really any game that mainly depends on the upper screen. So I figured that I should get that part replaced, which I did several weeks later. Now I think I did the replacement right, as my DS powers on (both top and bottom screens) and the sound works fine, but the darker upper screen issue persists! Oh, and furthermore, after I replaced the upper screen, there seems to be a row of lights trying to come through at the bottom of the new screen... they look like four brighter, more "normal" (as opposed to dim like the rest of my top screen) spots of light that weren't there before. Now, I'm guessing my screen is fine, and the problem might be something else... Anyone have any ideas? Please help :)
