    Okay, I was just playing Heartgold and went into a building when the screen turned black!! I don't think it was AP though. Because when I checked the power light of the DSi, it was gone, telling me the DSi is off.No, I didn't turn it off by accident.... Okay, the charger indicator is still on. So this happened to me a bunch of times before, but it turned on again. So I was like who gives a shit, and then..... [​IMG] OH SHIT IT'S NOT TURNING ON!!!!



    Yeah, I wake up in the morning and play DS....

    Check your battery. Maybe it doesn't connect too well.

    You internal fuse may have blown. It's known to happen with select flashcarts.

    How do I know if that happened or not?
    I can't fix that can I?
    Sorry, is the internal fuse in the Acekard/flashcart or in the DSi?



    Wait, let me test it out with my...GENUINE RETAIL MARIO 64 DS cart!

    The Yellow one in the middle. Or is it green? The one in the middle with the plug... that one. AKA charger indicator.

    Update:(not really) it's not turning on still.

    The fuse is in your DSi. If this is the case, you have to buy a new fuse.....then somehow stuff it back in the DSi.
    I suggest buying another DSi altogether.

    It happens with N5, but that won't even work in a DSi, and as far as I know, there aren't any DSi flashcarts yet that will blow a fuse.

    Lol, but how does the Flash cart make the fuse blow? Is it just the DSi's problem or the Acekard's?

    You know, s/he could just lie and say s/he doesn't know what happened. S/He just attempted to turn it on and it didn't turn on.

    Actually, they are. I did that with a DS screen problem, and I didn't send it cause the problem went away.

    You should send your DSi before it happens again. It'll be better in the end

    Just say that it has been doing this for a while.
