    Updating Firmware..

    The DS doesn't HAVE updatable firmware..Unless you mean FlashMe? You didn't turn it off while it was busy or anything I hope?

    PS: Your spelling, grammar and punctuation is a disgrace to all dutch people >_>

    PS2: If your flashing procedure shut down prematurely, you've been left with a half-written FlashMe.
    If you're LUCKY, you can use the Recovery Mode to still be able to continue flashing(If it went over ~5%)
    If not, you now have a nice paperweight, congratulations.

    - Check if the battery is making contact
    - You're sure it worked before you screwed the battery cap thingy.. back in?
    - Why did you even USE FlashMe? You have no reason to do it anymore nowadays. (A year ago it'd be normal, but now its uncommon)
    - Its weird for a fuse to blow this way.
    - Did you leave a piece of metal near the SL-1 hole?

    PS:
    - The legal age for beer is 16, you don't sound like a 16 year old =P.
    - Your body is worth more than 6100 dollars, even with this absurb euro/dollar exchange.
    - The human body uses up about 100 Watts

    - Why am I using these little marks to sum up my statements?...

    Must be a blown fuse then, Look for the F1 Fuse next to the slot-1 cart input (on the right) on the main board. Test this one with a multimeter, and if required, bridge it with some solder.

    Wait..you dont have a tri wing but you can see the main board?

    Check both fuses, low resistance is good, But if its in the ten-thousands, it's bad. (Blown fuse)

    You do know how to solder I hope. (If you can't even operate a multimeter, please, do not attempt to solder for your stupidity will burn a hole in it..) (No Tape doesn't work)(No, glue doesn't either)(No a carbon pencil doesn't work either to my dismay)
