It won't charge or turn on

I changed motherboards and i have tried this one in 2 different consoles and it won't boot up. If you connect the charger it will give the orange light 5s and it will turn off. If you turn it on it gives blue light 5s and then it turns off and does the pop sound. I checked all zif cables/connectors and exchanged batteries. The other motherboard works on both consoles.

Check your fuses, diodes; power circuitry. The fuses (in red) should have continuity, the diode (in blue) when tested with multimeter: red lead on output and black lead on input should be OL; reversing the leads should give 0.165V (Diode test mode). Also check the resistor values, and inspect the solder joints.

The fuse for the battery power is located on the action buttons board (in red).

You could also try refering to this post on GBA for additional help/info: GBATEMP Apparently replacing the daugtherboard fixed the issue in that case.

If you have the blue light and pop sound and you've checked and double-checked the ribbon cables and connectors then it's likely that one of the ribbon cables has a tear in it at the hinge. It could also be a connection in the upper portion of the console.

Hope this helps.

Is it normal that i't wont charge ? Isn't like a fuse/energy related problem ?

by

Is the battery fully charged? If it is then there is nothing to charge. The blue light and popping would likely be a separate issue from any charging issues unless there's been liquid damage or something.

by

No liquid damage, but I connect the same motherboard on other console and it has the same problem.

by

So it shows the orange light for 5 seconds then goes out and it shows the blue light and pops when you try to turn it on?

by

It shows the orange light and turns off if it's connected. If not just the bluelight and then pops and turns off. Yes, that's what happens.
