Hi. I'm completely new here - so if anything isn't as it should be, please correct me and bear with me Anyway, about a week ago a friend of mine bought a used N3DSLL, so the JAP version, in near perfect visual state but not being able to boot (if power button pressed there's no reaction, including LEDs). The defect was described in the selling, so no problem regarding the seller. My friend then gave me the N3DSLL in hopes that I could maybe able fix it - it would be a shame to throw away or sell for parts a near new device. Yeah, I know it sounds odd that she bought it but don't even want to try to fix it... But here I am. :-/ And I sincerely would love to see the beauty work again! So, I opened the console and noticed that a transistor on the motherboard (side B) is burned away as well as the golden "pins" for DAT0, CMD and the alternative CLK on side A. Also a connection "string" between the NAND chip (which apparently isn't neither Toshiba nor Samsung) and a two-point "pin" is floating freely around but doesn't seem really damaged from a first look. As I have some theoretical knowledge of hard modding the N3DSXL, it seems to me very much like someone soldered an HM (in an ugly way) and then pulled it away by brute force (in an even worse way). Pictures Side A: Side B: NAND closeup 1: NAND closeup 2 (red are missing parts, blue are start and end of the damaged connection, green is a suspected solder leftover): Has anyone got an idea how to fix the console? Is it fixable at all - or should my friend sell it for parts? Is a bridge required and if, where (I guess so if it is fixable)? Please instruct me (in detail) as I'm a complete noob of modding in practice. I have a solder station, a hot glue gun and minimal experience with soldering. Thanks for any help and the awesome community!
