    Well, i just found my old dsi in a box collecting dust, then i remembered it is bricked, so i'm looking if there is a way to fix it without sending it to nintendo support service.

    Here is the problem: It turns on normally, but every time i tap on a app or a game cartridge icon it gives me the following error (big image in spoilers)

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    "An error has ocurred. Tap and hold the POWER button to turn off the console. Check the console operations manual for more information."

    This happen when lauching the system settings app too. I have already tried to launch the screen calibration setting but it gives me that error too. I have an acekard 2i lying there if it can help...

    Any help will be appreciated :)

    I've had this problem a few times with consoles i've brought to sell, sometimes it's the camera that causes it others it has been the wifi board.

    Did you ever drop the console? sometimes the wifi board becomes unseated if dropped

    Wow. I've never really seen a bricked DSi in any way before... :huh:

    For me my DSi isn't bricked, just plays normally :)

    You can buy new WiFi boards and cameras from eBay; buy them and then just send them back if you didnt fix it that way

    Not possible considering youre trying to fix camera+WiFi.
    they arent soldered btw - you only need a triwing screwdriver and a phillips (just in case)

    i know, but that could be one of the reasons why it is bricked. It could be softbricked too... i'm just not sure.
