    Hello, I played approximately an hour Dragon Ball Fusions (a US eshop cia file) on my 2DS this afternoon then slept, forgetting to turn it off. I usually play with the console plugged on the house current but didn't this time.
    I slept around five hours and the console had run out of electricity when I woke up. So I plugged it on and the charging LED went on. After an hour, it refused to turn ON when I pressed the ON/OFF switch. Now, it has beeen two hours since I put the charger on it but it still won't work. (the charging LED is still okay)
    It doesn't help to remove the SD card.

    The console was on a desk in a stable position, the room wasn't neither hot nor very cold. And the wireless signal was active with ctr-httpwn (the alternative one) in background.

    Any idea of what happened?
    I'm pretty disappointed to lose another 2DS: I took especially care of this 2DS after my first one broke because of its SLEEP. I never used it outside, the console stayed mostly inside a plastic protection (except for a few occasions where I needed the touch screen), and it totalized less than a few weeks of play in terms of hours.

    Console informations:
    - 2DS
    - System 9.2
    - emulated NAND system: 11.2 (started through home menu hax)
    - one year old.

    Have you tried turning it on without the SD? Also, what is the "interruptor"?

    Have you tried turning the 2ds on without the SD Card in? Had an uncle who had a 3ds not booting to menuhax and his SD card was actually loose.

    @VinLark @Bmsortiz Sorry I had forgotten to write it. And interruptor was a bad attempt at translating "interrupteur" ^^". I meant switch.

    @wormdood Being on a few hours with a paused game just melt a composant? :wtf: (I am starting to hate this model)
    I checked some sites, and the price goes from 2euros the fuse to 40€ the reparation ( shipments fees excluded). What is a reasonable price? (I have no knowledge and no material to perform electronical interventions)

    im not sure what is reasonable but before you consider a repair like this try replacing the battery with a new one

    If the battery was dead, I could at least use the console plugged on the house. It's currently impossible zlthough the electricity comes through.
    But I'll ask to check then. ^^ (in any case, I have to find a repairman, since I have no mean to change the battery + my broken 2SD battery is probably dead after almost one year noy being used)

    @ItsKipz What?! Is this hopeless? :wtf: That was my piracy console . -_-'

    @LightShell That's not what I was asking. At all.
    I have a New 3DS, I never play around with its opening system and it was already becomng loose after 6months. If I liked this form of console, I would have bought a DS, and wouldn't have wait the 2DS release to change from my original GBA.

    Well, can't hurt to unplug the battery, hold the power button for a few, then plop the battery back in.

    I've repaired quite a few 2ds with the same problem. usually it's a loose connector or some gunk on the board. I'm not sure what's up with yours, but they're super simple to take apart. wouldn't hurt to take a look and compare it to what healthy boards look like. Once you get to that point and software is ruled out, I mean.

    After having a DSLite, DSI, and 2ds all break from regular use, i think im staying away from the *DS line for now, they seem to be very unreliable from my experience. I'm thinking of getting a psp/vita tho, sad to see my ds go but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    N3DS XL is really durable. It's not made of cheap shit like 2ds and DS DSL and DSi's

    @ItsKipz I don't even use it regularly nor did I gve it a bad treatment (it stays in box for extended times if I don't use it). It has been months since the last time I played before I tested Fusions today. ^^"

    Same for me, i think the 2ds is just poorly built and can just randomly die.

    well they were designed for sale at a lower pricepoint . . . one can only expect lower quality

    The GameBoy was designed to be sold at a low price. Mine had hard times and is still usable after 18 years (only the mic is dead).
