Hi! I don't know if this is the correct section to write this post, if it isn't sorry in advance, and Aldo sorry forma my tooo bad English. Yesterday i've disassemble my DSi to do an Hardmod, but i've broken the flat cable of the bottom screen... So i wanted turn on the DSi and without mount the "cover" i've connected the battery. But i've connected it with inverted + and -... Now the DSi doean't turn on and the only thing that it do is a orange led that flashes when i connect the DSi to the charge... I don't know if i've broken the motherboard or just the battery, and i don't wan't to spend uselessly money. Thanks in advance for the help and sorry again for my english

Im not sure if the cable is attached to the screen, but if it is you need to buy a new screen, it is pretty easy to replace.

yes is attached, i've tested the screen because i've done a little strap on the flat of the bottom screen and i wanted test the screen. I've turned on the Dsi and the bottom screen was glichted. After i've done the error with the battery, then i must to buy the screen and the power motherboard... Thanks!

I reversed my battery and then replaced the power board, then when turning the dsi on the bottom screen would become white and it didnt turn on (better then not turning on at all like before) then I went and secured all the wires extra carefully and it turned on fine.
