I can't get them in all the way!
I'm desperate at this point. How in the ever loving !&&*, do I get the hinges back in?! I've seen a couple videos (there isn't a lot out there on this) including on this site and everyone can seem to pop them back in without too much effort.
I am reshelling a DS but the hinges won't go back in all the way flush, they stick out a tiny bit, just the silver head piece. I am breaking my thumb and tools trying to get it back in, it looks like a tiny piece of plastic on the circle end piece is what is stopping it from going all the way in, it has a very slight raised area on top and on the bottom, but it has this on both circle end pieces and on the original case, I can't get them back in the original case either!
I'm not super new to hinges, I'm aware most of them take some effort, I have reshelled and repaired gameboy hinges and newer DS hinges but these are something else, no matter which way I twist it, they won't go in.
Is this a good question?
