    My kid threw water to the gamepad, everthing else works fine even touch, but the screen doesn't turn on, i replaced it with a new one but the new one doesn't turn on either.


    i think it's the main board (1-2) but i can't find it online. on ebay there is any other part except the board.
    is there somewhere i can buy it?
    or could be other thing?

    If it comes on and syncs and everything works except the screen then it's probably either the screen itself or the backlight. Getting an LCD wet does *really* bad things to them.

    EDIT: I'm dumb and didn't read. Is it possible the backlight isn't integrated into the screen, maybe?

    seems dumb, but check out all the conectors AGAIN and AGAIN, check the speakers soldering points too.... my O3DS XL last week was the same way..... turn on and stuff but the screens doesnt show up, until i realize one cable of speakers are loose and break
