    Like the title says. N2DS XL Will not power on. Bought it new, installed Luma, and put it aside for a couple of weeks. Finally got back to it, and nothing. Turned it on to test a cart about a week ago, and it was fine, but now absolutely nothing. The battery charges, but I get no lights of any kind from the power button. I have tried 2 batteries, and 3 charges. Nothing helps. Any further ideas?

    Yes, and in the backup card I have for the unit. It acts more like a hardware issue than a Luma issue. No lights of any kind when I try to power it on. When I've had Luma issues in the past the unit will power on, but give no display. I am not getting any signs of life here.

    Did you leave it on sleep mode all this time? I've heard of that causing problems.

    I don't believe so, though I am not writing it off as impossible. I would figure opening the unit, and swapping the battery a few times like i have would override any issue caused by a sleep bug. But if there's something I can try related to this I am willing to give it a go.
