[FOR SALE] DS-Lite GBA cartridge reader sockets and button PCB's

Post by abrugsch » Fri Dec 02, 2016 5:14 am

**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT**
I'm not currently taking orders for cartridge ports (not that it matters much since nobody seems to be doing cartridge mods anymore) as I currently have no hot air station available to me. I'm not sure how long this situation is going to last so I'm just not taking any orders for the time being for desoldered ports. (I still have plenty of donor DS Lite motherboards so feel free to get in touch if you want to have a crack yourself and want a cheap board.)
**ANNOUNCEMENT ENDS**

Hi all
I have a bunch of DS-Lite motherboards, waaay more than I need, so if anyone is after an elusive DS/GBA cartridge port without having to sell a kidney for one, I can de-solder one for you.
I'm in the UK so although I can ship internationally, it will probably only be cost effective for UK'ers or maybe also EU'ers (seems to be around an extra £2 for most eu countries and 3-4 ish for USA)

Anyway, I can do a slot desoldered for £5 including UK postage (intl. will be extra) or if you can do the desoldering yourself, or want to have a go, the whole DS board is £3.50 including UK postage but note, all these boards are in some way dysfunctional. so if you're after one for a gameboy macro mod (ds without the top screen so it only plays GBA games) then it's pot luck if the board works enough to do that. some don't charge, some don't read carts, some don't drive the top screen etc. They were a job lot so I haven't personally tested them to find out what's not working. I can put aside any I find as I come across them if you want a specific function though...)

NEW: I also can supply just the button bits of PCB for minty pi 2.0 (when the guide comes) as I'm sure the project will use them. If you just want the button pads cut off, it will be £3 delivered (UK) or £2 if you want to cut them (whole board without the cartridge port)

Multiple deals and additional 3D printed parts available too so PM me your requirements.

also note, I can only do the desoldering when I go to my local hackspace since they have the tools that I don't at home which is around once a week, so it might be a week or so before I can get one done if I haven't done a bunch already.

hello!
I'd like to buy 2 (two) desoldered cartridge readers if you still have some available :)
How can I pay you? do you accept Paypal?
Cheers! :D

yes, paypal is fine, I'll have to see how much your shipping will be (italy right?)
I'll PM you details once I've got a price (should only be a little extra since we're still in the EU (just ;) )

Yep, I've seen lots of four and lots of five. I have two SNAFU DS Lites that I'm going to try and salvage with my friend first, but keeping your link on favorites if....when I break something haha.
