    Good day!

    I have a Nintendo DS Lite that randomly freezes while playing it and pressing buttons and you need to restart it. It can even happen right away upon starting the console and pressing some buttons, so I don’t think it’s a matter of over-heating, but rather the button press on the PCB! I opened it up and visually I don’t see anything wrong, cracked, broken or burnt on the PCB and I also tried a different battery. What could be the cause and how could I fix it?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, everything seems fine visually.

    Does this occur after you've been playing for a while or does it happen at any point in the game? How's the charge on the battery.
