Thread: How Does DS Lite detect that screen is closed?

    How Does DS Lite detect that screen is closed?

    I've just had a look at my wife's DS Lite, and it shuts the screens off when you close the case. How does the DS detect this?
    I'm thinking I might have damaged/wrongly installed whatever this bit is, which might explain the problem in my other post?

    Every ds,dslite and dsi shuts the screens off when closed. This is made for less power consuming

    there's a magnet (i think) in the lower right corner around the the start and select buttons and yes its for power saving. if you put a low power magnet around said area the screen will shut of but i don't know how good that is for the ds

    I'm sure using magnets around the DS is fine.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    The speakers of the DS lite (DSi) are in the lid, when you close it it comes above a magnetic sensor and it switches off.
    The same trick is used in mobiles. My blackberry also has a magnetic sensor. When I put it in his holster it also switches off.
    It is a neat trick and with the DS lite it is cleverly done in combination with the strong magnets of the speakers
