    Hi, so my new 3DS just died on me. It won't charge, or power on or anything, even LED lights won't come on. I opened it up and the board is basically pristine, no water damage at all. I know it's not the battery since I just changed it, or the charger since it works on my other 3DSs, I even Goh the new charging doc and no results. I'm just really confoosed :(

    Btw I have some basic knowledge on soldering too, but the thing is I just can't locate the problem. Help!

    Since you just changed the battery, does the new one work on other systems?

    Yep it does, even fully charged it on another system.

    Basic troubleshooting. I always try to eliminate the chance of a faulty battery. Just because it's new, doesn't mean it can't be faulty. Although it sounds like you may have either blown a fuse your something it wrong with your charger port

    If you try running the system without battery and of the charger, does it start then?

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the charger port really, I used a dock to be sure too. But maybe the fuses blowing is a possibility. How do I go about checking the fuses?

    Do you have the 3DS in bits? If so, can you take photos of the motherboards front and back?
