New Lease On Life 4

Once upon a time, a young man bought a limited edition golden triforce Nintendo DS. He loved the way it looked, the way it played, the way it felt in his hands. He took that thing everywhere in his pocket and played tons of great games on it. It suffered a few drops, some selectively unresponsive shoulder buttons, a busted green power LED, but it was still in fine working order.

However, the years eventually took their toll. One day the hinge that held its top screen to its bottom cracked, and that young man was left with a DS with a floppy top screen. Such a terrible fate indeed. He did manage to move on, bought a 3DS for some reason, and kept playing. But when he returned to his DS games, something wasn't quite right. It just wasn't as comfortable as his DS of old. So he took it upon himself to return his shining DS to its former glory. A few tutorials and orders from China later, and his DS was back and better than ever.


The moral of this story, kids, is that even if an electronic device seems broken, it could still be a very easy fix if you're willing to investigate the problem.
