    Seems like more then just that fuse is dead. Don't have much experience with the DS internals though so I can\t help you a lot. Maybe the power switch isn't good anymore (remembers the PSP days), or another fuse is blown (I seem to remember there is another one on there, but can't remember where). Hope I helped a little [​IMG].

    Theres a really good guide for this...at Maxconsole forums. I'll go find a link.


    Also, would a mod move this so this guys kids can get a little help? This is in the wrong area, the people who might know are probably all over in the NDS section, probably lurking in Hardware, Devices and Utilities.
