    My brother and I got DSL about a year and a half ago- mine is immaculate but his jhas taken a bit of a knockign over that time.

    Now his DS just wont turn on- it charges all right, the light comes on but then the power switch is used nothign happens at all- no white flash nothing.

    Ive: (temporarily) soldered over L2, ive replaced the power switch, soldered over fuses, tried a different battery all to no avaqil

    any suggestions? we cant afford a new DS at the moment and im loathed to share nine!

    any help is much appreciated!

    I would say get a new one, as you could just buy every replaceable part and hope 1 fixes it or maybe you fix the real problem, but your fix had made another, in any case the best idea is a new 1.
