    Hello,
    2 days ago, my DSi started not starting up. When I press the POWER button, it only shows a white screen and the blue light goes on, but after half a second it goes out again. I don't think it's the battery, because when I start it up while it's on the charger, nothing's diffrent. I have no clue what the cause is [​IMG] . If it's something inside, I can open it. But I don't know what could be wrong and it will void my warranty.

    So does any of you has any idea what the problem is?

    Sending it to the Big N would be the easiest thing to do I guess.

    If you send it to Ninty be sure not to include your flashcart! [​IMG]

    well, it works again!

    I've put an XCM eye-candy crystal shell or something on it, and now it suddenly works again! And it looks better too [​IMG]

    You still have a warranty, you could get a fixed/new one for free. They send you an postage-paid, addressed envelope and everything. [​IMG]

    Yes that's true, but all my dsi games and apps downloaded from the dsi shop will be gone... So I prefer to just repair my dsi.

    my house.
    that's no problem. my little brother's dsi died and he got a new one from nintendo with the dsiware games activated so he could redownload them for free..
