Really Nice Product, soldering skills essential! – Repair Parts Replacement Game Cart Slot for NDS Lite Reviews

posted by GambelBarney on 06/03/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Very nice build quality, almost like the original ones. -Works very well. -Cheap solution to fix your NDSlite if it doesn't read game cards any more
Cons:
-Really nothing about the product -The installation is a bit tricky and it is essential to have some soldering skills (described in Other Thoughts)
Other:
As I said above, the installation is a bit tricky. The simplest way to remove the old slot is to pinch off the tiny pins at the back side. Then unsolder the 4 ground pins with solder wick. If you have removed the old slot, you can easy unsolder the tiny pins at the back side now. The installation of the new slot is easy. There are plastic pins, who keep it in place. Simple solder the new slot in. Now you can assemble your NDSlite again. It should work flawless.
Bottomline:
It's a great deal, if the slot1 of your NDSlite is damaged and doesn't read any game cards any more. I really recommend it. Buy! Buy! Buy!
