    Hey there,

    I have placed the battery in the wrong way after dismantling. I noticed a small spark where the battery connects to the new 3ds xl. From there, the 3ds wouldn't turn on. I see an orange charger light when connecting the charger for a couple of seconds before going off. I guess it may be a fuse issue, but not sure how to identify where the fuses are or what type of fuses I will need. Does anyone know what type of fuses are required for the new 3ds xl and where to get them from ? Could i have damaged any other components that i should look out for ? Also, could i just use a regular solder to solder such a small thing if required ?

    Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
