    So today i broke a zif connector on a n3ds xl. Its happened before, as this 3ds has been taken apart many time. Is the large white one that the abxy board connects to. So its not broke broke, but the pressure bar is off. Thing is i cant remember how they go back on. I know this is not alot to go off, and its almost impossible to get a picture, but if someone does know please let me know, worse case i can get the cable to stick with some blue tac. But i would love to just get it back on.

    Honestly i dont think my camera could pick it up. But if you have ever taken one apart, to the left of the mirco sd reader is the zif, and the white pressure bar came completely off but did not break in half like they normally do. But looking at it i think im screwed with getting it back on, i think i have to press down on one set of pins while lining it up on another and that just impossible.

    Yea pretty sure its dead. It had a good life. But i guess after all the repairs its just over. I'm getting the blue light and pop now. Have tried resetting the cables like 8 times and nothing.

    I have been having issues with the C stick. So that was getting replaced and the buttons were getting cleaned. But i think with all the times it been apart, its just couldn't handle this time.
