    So a few months back I had the idea to use a DSi battery in my AGS 101, however I accidentally bought a DSi XL battery, it would turn on and power fine but wouldn't come close to resting even if I had modified the shell. However I must have left the battery sitting and touching the connectors for a couple of days, no matter what battery I try, mainly the original GBA SP battery, it won't power on. If you plug the charger in and switch it on it'll flicker for a second and then stay turned off. You have to unplug and re-plug the charger in order to get this to happen again. I have no soldering experience but I'm wondering how on earth I can fix this. I modded the console myself with an original AGS 101 screen and although I've just bought another one recently I'd love to get this one working again properly.

    Probably blown fuses


    You need to get a multimeter and test them and then best replace blown one.
