|lol'ing at DS repair

So I got my trigram and very small philps screwdriver in the mail today, to open up and hopefully fix the nintendo DS given to me from my 13 yearold neighbor...as he shattered the LCD screen on the top. So I proceed to opening the DS when I took apart everything, I noticed something that would likely save me money...alot.
Both the DS Touch screen and the top screen are identical. Same size, same wire layout. The touch screen is only touch sensitive because on top of the screen is the sensor plate (Made of glass)
So I tried doing a swap...well, I learned something...the hard way, I managed to break one of the plastic holders for the wiring, opps!
So after fiddling with it for a bit, I got it to stay in. So I put it back together, and well shocking it worked, but the color was all nasty. My guess was that the wiring for the color output was messed up or it wasn't in all the way.
Anywho, I kinda killed the DS, I took the only good screen out though. My friend EP (Travis) is giving me his old DS which it too, has a damaged top screen.
So I will now try using...caution this time and do this job slowly. I know this'll work as both screens are the same.
Anywho...I was bored thus why I posted this thrilling LJ XD.
): And I've noticed some things going with my circle of friends, emotional problems it seems. I know the feeling, but I'm a rather unemotional person. Anywho, *hugs* to you guys, and I'll pray for ya ;)
I'm here for ya, thats what friends are for, to support ya know :D
