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.

Answer this question I have this problem too

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

Hi,

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.

Hi!

Have you tried taking out the battery and putting it in again?

Your system probably refuses to charge because the battery may already be full.
