kathy, follow this guide to remove your logic board Nintendo DSi XL Motherboard Replacement you should find the power connector soldered onto the logic board. a new connector is available at places like this. Use a soldering iron to remove the old one and re-solder a new connector. Make sure you do not use to much heat to lift the solder pad. If you are unsure about doing it yourself, find somebody like a TV?Radio repair shop and see if they can solder it for you. Inspect the logic boards for any cracks, or other loose components. Good Luck.
