    Hey guys!

    I've got a broken New 3DS XL. Please don't ask me how (I was really brainless at this moment) i placed the battery at the wrong way.
    After that, the console doesn't start at all. It only loads the battery. I've tried a different battery, but I think I've fried some hardware.
    So my question is, can I somehow rescue the system or which hardware do I have to replace? The mainboard or even other hardware?

    Regards

    Can you charge it? I don't think it's fried. There's really no way of telling without testing each part, but if it WAS fried, I'd say you'd only need to replace the motherboard.

    Thanks for the answer. It looks like charging is working.

    All right, I'll check the fuses. It is probably the F2 fuse behind the battery right?

    I had this exact issue. Replace the daughter board that has the Abxy buttons. It was 20 on ebay and fixed my ds.
