    Well i had a broken cable (top) and when i opened it multiple times, i ripped a part of it which was the DS to switch off. Now, i tried the soldering over the fuses stuff and i think i overdid it as i covered more than the fuse F2... at first the orange light switched on and off but then after soldering F2 it remained on even without the battery

    I tried soldering over the F1 fuse and now... no lights come on. Dead?
    any solution for this as i just want it for gba games only... thanks

    EDIT: After some research it seems l may have done a mistake by not removing the fuse first... is it too late to do it now?

    Not even the screens flicker? I'd say it's dead, but I'm no expert.

    Once you start messing around and soldering shit, if you make a mistake, chances are that it is very permanent. You really need to know what you're doing, as one mistake can ruin everything. Chances are that you need a new system now.
