Aye ! Recently i have bought a used N3DS, the smaller model. It was described as working, altough the touchscreen didn't. Someone did open it up before from what i have seen, but it did boot up. Worked as described, only touchscreen wasn't. I dissasembled it myself, and saw that the touchscreen ribbon was totally worn out. No doubt that it doesn't work. I already have a replacement touchscreen shipped, do that's not the problem. The one that i struggle with is the fact, that after i put it back together, everything the way it was, it won't even boot up. Both screens are Black, only the blue led shows up, and stays that way until i reset it. Also, i've got to admit that some of the connectors, the ones that are known as the ones that arent supposed to be lifted up, were a little loose. And the questions of mine. Does the n3ds boot without the tochscreen ribbon attached? It looks to me that it is the culprit, and after i change this one, IT should boot, altough i am worried about the connectors, that i described above. I will try to attach some pics for better understanding, considering the fact that i write like, well Thanks in advice!
