My nintendo 2ds xl wont turn on?

It wont turn on. I have it plugged in. The orange charge light is on. But whether it is plugged in or not, when i push the power button, the blue light comes on for about five to ten seconds and then shuts off. No screen activity. And you can hear it shut off. It makes an audio click off type sound. Whats the diagnoses? I had it in my back pack. Too much pressure?

Hey, Kyle. This can be caused by a couple different things. The first place to check is the battery. Remove the battery and inspect the three gold terminals for signs of corrosion. Then inspect the corresponding terminals on the board. clean these carefully and reinstall the battery.

If that doesn’t fix the problem, you’ll need to open your device further and check the two ribbon cables on the board (or any of the other 6). Based on what you said about the popping noise and the pressure of your backpack I would say this is most likely your problem. You need to make sure the two gold colored ribbon cables aren’t loose or damaged and that the pins on the board are also not damaged. Be gentle with the cables. If the cables are properly seated your screen is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Let me know how it goes. Hope this helped and good luck!

I had the same issue, and I'm aware of how the 2ds xl works. So my instinct was that I had a bad cable or display, but then I heard you mention the battery. When I took out the battery it looked just fine, so I thought it couldn't be the battery. I reinstalled the battery and then the 2ds xl turned on just fine.

So in short, it may be possible that you have the same issue that I had. Try taking out and plugging the battery into the 2ds xl

We have an issue where it knowingly got wet, but still charges, but won’t turn on. How do we fix it?

My 2DS XL is brand new and now the screen won't turn on the origin light and red and blue lights come on but not the screen. What can I do?
