2 DS Lites wont power on.

Ok so I had 2 DS Lites, one the hinge cracked and the top screen stopped working the second the battery corroded and the bottom screen would not turn on.

So I took them both apart and tried to swap the screens and now neither will power on.

hello james,

no power: check f2 and L2 fuses on the motherboard with a multimeter,

about the green light and flash:it mean that u have a problem with a lcd ribbon cable (top or bottom lcd) push the ribbon cable in farther. make sure you push on both sides of it with your fingernails until it goes all the way in then latch it down

Thank you, the top ribbon cable was not in all the way, got that reseated and it fired right up. Thanks for the help
