This guide will allow you to locate, test and replace the filter.
You will find replacement EM10 Filter's on the internet for a few dollars each.
Removing the EM10 and bypassing it may leave the motherboard unprotected against power supply noise. Remove and bypass at own risk!

Insert the edge of a spudger in between the lower and upper case near the top right corner of the DS Lite.
Carefully run the spudger along the right edge of the DS Lite, creating an opening in the process.
Continue running the spudger along the backside of the DS Lite until the majority of the lower case has been separated from the upper case.
