Hi, so I've got my New 2ds XL around 3 weeks ago and 2 weeks ago after school (exactly 1 week after getting it) i took it out of my pocket, and I wanted to turn it on, so I did and the blue light came on but after around 4 seconds I heard a pop (like if the power was cut out, something like that) and the blue light turned off. (Also while I was in class I accidentally hit it on the table where the pikachu face is but not that hard and I think it has to do with that) Please help me because I'm ready to buy an ifixit toolkit and try to open it.

Thanks!

It's probably one of the ribbon cables but I don't know which one
You should try opening it and seeing if any cable is disconnected or damaged
If it's disconnected it's an easy fix you can just reconnect it but if the cable is damaged you will probably have to replace the part that uses that cable

OK thank you, and just in case I have to replace something, where can I buy replacement parts?

Most importantly, good reliable parts

If you live in Poland you can probably buy some parts on allegro or some other english ebay store
If the broken part is the top screen or something else in the top part it's very hard to replace and you should probably give your 2DS to some repair shop

    Why not they do the same with the BIOS replacement kits?

    I'd rather wait for a kit to become a available

    I'm happily more confident to do it myself without a kit.

    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

    Unless there are additions that need to be done.

    You're right.

    Yes, and not from some shitty Chinese store.

    They are many repetable component stores to name such as RS Components.

    But then there's added tax to the mix.

    Makes them more expensive. :(

    It has been discussed for quite a long time now.

    I'm fine with everything USB wise.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

  • Shape @ Shape:
    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer

  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age.
