THX for help.I thought that my english is bad but i understood what you mean^^and is a short somwhere in the cable but how can this cause?


The ribbon cable the r-trigger is on contains the SD Card slot, the left and right trigger button contacts, and also the volume control buttons. If the positive electricity from the r-trigger goes to the positive electricity for the volume or to the SD card reader there is a problem because voltages have changed. Your problem with it shutting down may even be water damage and the connector on the motherboard where this cable is connected may have corrosion on it. If you find that to be true let me know I will cover how to clean it with you.


There is not a water damage.if it is a short on the cable how can it released?the Dsi wasn´t fall down on the ground or something else.I hope that the new cable is the answer for the problem.what did you think?
