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.

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