My nintendo 3ds xl wont turn on or charge.
Hi all, I'm very new to the forum. I wanted to get into some console repair work as a hobby so I bought a broken nintendo 3ds xl off of eBay. When the console came in the mail it would not charge, would not power on, does not snap or pop, and there is no light that comes on whatsoever - so in other words the system is completely unresponsive.
Here's a list of the things that I have done.
• attempted to charge the console with two different chargers.
• tested the battery for charge and any obvious damage. (looked completely healthy and had 2.4 volts out of 3.7 volts at max charge.)
• taken apart the system completely in search of any obvious damage.
- I have found a lot of rusty colored corrosion within the system - but no obvious melting of components that I can see has taken place..
I will try and figure out how to add some pictures of the corrosion that I found within the system to give you a "look see" as to what might be going on.
Is this a good question?
