    Hi, As you may have read in my previous posts i enjoy fixing up 3DS systems and giving them a new lease of life. I have just acquired a new project this time a flame red version, its in very good condition aside from the system not starting up just a solid orange light.

    From what i can gather so far.

    *Solid orange light charged a spare battery i had spare.
    *Checked the f1 and f2 fuse for continuity and they seem to work.
    *reflowed the solder joints on the battery connection and tested continuity.
    *no visible liquid or cable damage.

    I am still having the same issue where there is no activity just a solid orange light when charging, if i press the power button i can see the orange light slightly flicker its almost like the 3ds is loosing a slight amount of energy but not enough to start.


    I am running out of ideas on this, so does anyone have any ideas ? ( please don't say send back to nintendo haha this is a project thanks :)
