Please help me fix my Dsi.

One day I decided to go back and get some nostalgia by playing my DSI and nothing happens when I press the PWR button, like nothing at all. No light powers on, no screen powering on, and the only sign of life is the charging light.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I should probably note that I have a 3DS. Help would be useful tho.

Hi Eddie,

It sounds like you've got 1 of 2 problems going on.

  1. Either your F1 or F2 fuse has blown.
    1. F1 is located next to the charge port
    2. F2 is located on the opposite side of the battery terminal
  2. Something isn't seated properly.
    1. Wifi card
    2. Ribbon from the upper/lower LCD
    3. Other various ribbons or connections not seated properly

From my experience, this is probably going to be the 1 option and probably point #2. If you've checked both fuses with a multimeter on continuity mode and they're okay, start checking all your ribbons and such as indicated in point 2.

Hope these help and you get your system back up and running. Good luck!
