I've been trying to repair a New 2DS XL on and off for a while now. It will charge (or at least show a charging light) when it's plugged in but does nothing when I try the button. I've tried replacing the battery but the problem persists. I've also separated out the motherboard and washed it in an ultrasonic cleaner with isopropyl and gave it more than enough time to dry.

At this point my biggest guess is that one of the screens is busted and that's why it's not turning on. I've checked the ribbon cables and the parts that attach to the motherboard don't look damaged. From what I understand if one of the cables is broken that could cause this problem. Is there any guides to a step by step troubleshooting to figure out what the problem is? Or is it as much of a pain as disconnecting each part and seeing if it boots?

It would still turn on but shut off immediately if the screens or any other important part are broken/disconnected
Maybe it's some power connection issues or maybe the motherboard is just dead

    Didn't even know they had it. I thought they were a grocery store.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They got a strip club in the break room as the rumors told
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But no dedicated strippers, the staff just rotates weekly.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Nobody takes breaks when Big Bertha is in shift.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Not that nobody likes 'em large (and old), but the break room is so small, last time she spun around the pole her ass killed three people.

    "ARTOO, SHUT DOWN TRASH COMPACTORS ON LEVEL 7387!!!"

    I can still hear the crunching.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Big Bertha is the trash compactor
  • Veho @ Veho:
    She just sits on the trash can.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And it becomes a trash disk.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And gets repurposed as a sewer cover.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Trashed dick
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Trampolines used to be called jumpolines until Bertha stepped on one.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    In the first draft of Lion King, instead of the wilderbeest stampede, there was just Bertha.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    My idiot boss use to jump into compactors and I had a tough decision that day
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Oh hey that's neat.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But you can just use an SP instead so why bother.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    HDMI out, BT controller support, runs PSP (?)
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Or does it? I forgot.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Not for psp
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Shame.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    What Sony can't figure out how to do
