To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
See the image for this part with the notes we wrote. We received a part that actually looked older than the several years old original hinge from Nintendo. The original had crazy glue on it and would not work. We got this part and sent the seller a note. While the response was prompt - same day - the message was unacceptable. We were told we had a new part, and the only advise given to date is to call one of their folks to get help installing the part. If the part is indeed new, their manufacturing process is terrible. The plastic they use is clearly soft compared to the original, and witnessed by how the top is blown out. The part is rusty, and it does not move as necessary. Plus, it is the wrong part! Go elsewhere for DS replacement parts; other choices are available.
When I purchased my First Nintendo DS Controller for over $100+ I thought it would be sturdy, Just like their NES systems, Boy, was I Wrong. Now stop right here, The Games & Controller Work Great, I spend Hours playing on them, But it's the Little things that Cause the Problems I'm having. The Weakest parts, Are the Hinges/Axles, on the units. After mere Hours of play, The New hinges broke off the axles, So I had to order replacements. No problem, Right?, Wrong, These Parts DO Not contain Ant Instructions on how to replace them. And the charge of fifty to a hundred dollars to send the DS in for repairs was out. But I did it myself anyway. The replacement Hinges are working now, for the last few months, so I'm happy.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002S16YTA/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_img
I ordered this because I thought my old axle had broken, but upon taking apart my DS I found that the case had worn away around the axle, and my old axle was fine. As a result I haven't installed or tested this product, so I can't really comment on its usefulness.
