Changed power socket but nothing works

I have changed the power socket on my Nintendo ds xl as the pins got damaged, I stripped it down removed the socket and replaced it with a new one, I have voltage after the f1 fuse but nothing works, the battery was not flat and was working up till then.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Not sure if this applies, but if any of the ribbon cables were damaged, or if not fully seated, you will see the DS power up and shut down immediately, or power on with backlight and sound but no images. If you get power and the battery charging light comes on when you plug the unit in, then you probably have this issue.

I've seen a couple of 3DS systems with this issue. My solution was no to fix the socket, but to charge via the "contact points" on the back - rather than using the actual power socket. (look for a dock for your system)

the contact points seem to run to a different part of the system than the power socket.

if that doesn't work either - I'd try to find something similar to nyko's Charge Base for the original 3ds (it has it's own charging system - separate from the 3ds)
