My system won't turn on and charges for 5 seconds before disconnecting
I wanted to play my 2ds for something to do however it doesn't seem it wants to cooperate. I plug the charger in with the orange led turning on for approximately 5 seconds. I've been constantly plugging in the charger to have it gain charge but to much disbelieve it is still yet to turn on. If anyone has had this problem and knows a possible solution could you possibly leave an answer. If there isn't a solution and a new one is need please leave an answer.
Is this a good question?
Are you using the original power brick and cable? Using a too high power brick can prevent it from charging to protect itself.

Yes I'm not using anything other than the one bought with the product

I assume your 2Ds isn´t really charging. I have had the same issue, with a minor difference - during charging the led flashes only for couple of minutes.
I assumed a problem with the charging connector of the 2DS ( after 3 years of using, may a material fatigue occurs ) .
I opened the rear panel, following the guidlines from ifixit.
After opened it , I took a look at the top panel/
there is a metal spring on the power conncetor/ pressed down carefully to increase the contact pressure/ connect with charge cable/ et voila - on the screen the symbol for charging occurs.
