    today i was checking a stock of nintendo slot 1 cards.
    i tested them random because i got all system kernel on two micro tf card.
    after testing halfhour
    my first nintendo pink die. don't know reason, i think maybe it happens, i am unlucky.
    later i go to my friend and borrow another nintendo ds black.
    i continue my tests , supercards ok , acekard ok, edge ok, oh here come again m3 real,
    put a card inside, later try to power on with another m3 real card inside. but second dsl dead too!
    now it's too much! 2 withint 4 hours dead. and i used one m3 real for some month too and never happened.

    defect: don't power on, even with ac adapter, red light sometime with ac adapter blink once.
    after google 2 hours finally i found this site

    http://www.m3wiki.com/index.php/Nintendo_D...le_(blown_fuse)



    now i ask. If i connect directly the 2 terminal of fuse, it will works? So what is the mean of that fuse? nothing?
    hope someone can answer me before i decide to open it or go to warranty but it will take weeks.

    and the probabilty of blowing the fuse with m3 real is 100% or what ??????

    thanks

    Bridging a fuse brings about the risk of blowing other components in the future. The whole point of a fuse is to be a sort of cheap breaker. I would say warranty it.

    More like .0000000001%, I don't think I've ever heard anyone ever having this happen with or without a flashcard.

    I've heard of a few guys that've bricked DS's exactly like you're describing


    yes, you can just bridge the 2 points and it'll work again

    but no guarantee how long it'll last

    You haven't heard very many cases, then. This is actually a relatively common occurence with Slot-2s, and happens with slot-1s on occasion too.

    Man get that m3 real and smash the crap out of it with a sledge hammer. Mend the fuses, use the other carts.

    The same happened to me when I was testing an M3 miniSD some months ago. It blew my GBA's fuses up.

    Now I'm going to check for the fuses, maybe I can get it to work again [​IMG]
