Hi, i replaced the top screen on my daughters dsi xl as she had dropped it and then half of it went black, it was working great otherwise. I followed a tutorial on ebay on how to replace the top screen. After assembly it wont power on, it just has a quick flash trying to start and then nothing.

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong here, i could take it all to bits and check all the connections but im hoping someone with some experience on this problem can give me a few pointers.

cheers

Looks like either the new top screen doesn't work, or one of the screens aren't fully plugged in.
Try reseating the screen connections.

thanks for the reply, would this kind of fault cause it to not power up, the connections are that small i need to get a magnifier to check these then.

Yeah, if the DS doens't detect a screen is plugged it, it will intentionally not boot.
