We’re really sorry we have to do this, but we cannot continue to support the Nintendo DS. Cost of parts, labor and in the infrequency make these devices no longer economical or practical to service anymore.
Gophermods was built and launched around servicing game consoles. We’re some of the OGs in this repair space. So if we tell you we can’t repair it anymore, I wouldn’t trust many other folks to service your console.
Thinking about DIY: Do it! This the only economical / practice process we would recommend to service this device. We would HIGHLY recommend tools, parts and step-by-step guides from ifixit.com
Our relentless determination to provide a quality service gifted us with the opportunity to support thousands of other devices for customers.
Maintaining the skill, equipment, and ability to service a consoles years after launch is unfortunately not possible. We still receive requests, but we cannot maintain the level of quality service and repairs for a request that is only received every few months.
I know this is disappointing; if we had a solid referral, we would give you one, but we are unaware of any significant reputable company that we can honestly recommend that would provide you with quality AND value.
We want to give a special shout-out to any customer that did have their game consoles fixed by Gophermods over the years. You helped build the business we are today, and we would not be where we are without you. Thank you so much for all your support over the past decade.
