DS No Longer Working After Disassembly

I decided to open up my original DS so I could clean some dust. After cleaning the dust from inside my DS, I tried to power it on but the green light momentarily powered on for a split second along with the bottom display. I then took it apart again to make sure I plugged in every ribbon cable but when I put it all together and plugged it in, there was absolutely nothing except the speaker pop when you press the power button. I plugged my DS into the wall and tried powering it on but still experienced the same issue but with the orange charging light on. Can anyone help?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You can’t remove the WiFi module on the original DS so I just unplugged and plugged the antenna to the WiFi module and it didn’t help.
