Hey guys,

Haven't used this in ages... It was my very first DS flashkit

Just asking if anyone could help me figure out what the problem is with my M3 Perfect SD phat (Slot 2) device. It's not the slim, it's this one:

When I put the SD card in, it wouldn't load, but when I don't have it in, it gives an error in the loader saying that there is no SD card inserted.

Thanks heaps.

PS: If I can't revive it/confirmed dead (I want to play GBA games again D: ), just posing this question: Is it possible to use Rein to back up HG/SS? Cause I would like to load my current save in my AK2i into the legit game cart.

Check the battery. What you can do is remove it and if the card loads then you know for sure. Funny thing about M3 cards is they don't work with dead batteries.

Hey,

Just pried it open. Still wouldn't work D: Here's what I've done:

I've taken out the battery... one of the connectors broke off, oh well gotta solder it on again...

Here's a pic of it without the battery.

Surprisingly it does load... without the SD card >_> hence, the error.

But then when I put the card back in... and turn it on:

Have you tested the battery. I'm wondering if it's not going to work unless you have a good battery in it. There's one more thing I can think of. I had a lite version that was having contact problems and I had to put a paper shim unter the board to get proper contact and be able to load games.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
