I've had my Nintendo DS lite for about two years now. Recently (last month or so), it's begun to stay white when I open it up. (This is after it's turned on and I'm playing a game, but I set it aside for some reason.) If I wiggle the hinge a bit, the image kicks in, so I think it's a connection problem, especially since it doesn't happen every time. Has anyone else had this problem? How likely is this to result in the connection being permanently lost? I don't have the $75 to get Nintendo to service it, so if the connection fails totally, I'll just have to set it aside and use my old SP and GameboyColor for games. (Yes I still have them, and the games to play on them.)

Turns out I have a hair-line crack in the hinge, so I think that's probably the problem. I'll have to send it back to Nintendo to get it fixed eventually, although for now I'm still using it. The left button has quit working, and I have to fiddle with the angle between the two sections to get the top screen to work sometimes, but mostly it fulfills my gaming needs. Thank you to all who have made suggestions as to how the thing might be messed up!
