    Hi guys,
    I have a problem with an old 3ds model. The 3ds wont charge, both fuses are ok and the battery is fine. The 3ds turns on and play games. When I try to charge it, the orange light doesnt appear at all. Only if I take off the battery the light turns on for a few seconds. As I have have another motherboard I swapped it and this one charges, but doesnt turn on (only a popping sound and a blue light for a couple of seconds).
    I use an original and 100% working power supply
    Any idea how to fix one of the two motherboards?

    try these to see if it will boot with any of the payloads and follow the rest


    check if you have b9s 1.2/1.3
    download the 7z file from https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v9.1 and place the boot.firm on the root of your SD card
    if that works get the boot.3dsx from https://github.com/fincs/new-hbmenu/releases/tag/v2.0.0 and place that on the root of your SD card
    then follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup

    check for b9s 1.0
    download the 7z from https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v7.1 and place the boot.firm on the root of your SD card
    if that works get the boot.3dsx from https://github.com/fincs/new-hbmenu/releases/tag/v2.0.0 and place that on the root of your SD card
    follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/updating-b9s
    then follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup

    check for a9lh
    download the 7z from https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v7.0.5
    and place the arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of the SD card
    if that works get the boot.3dsx from https://github.com/fincs/new-hbmenu/releases/tag/v2.0.0 and place that on the root of your SD card
    follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/a9lh-to-b9s
    then follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup

    Try the dock. If the charging port is bad, sometimes a dock still works fine.

    Charging post is ok.. infact when I try to charge without battery the orange led shows up for a couple of seconds. There is continuity between pin 1 and F1 >.< it's a mistery

    I tried all those and it didn't boot. However I realized the bottom screen flash for half second when I try to turn on. But with another motherboard both screens work perfectly O.o

    So did you verify the two pairs of probe testing both have continuity?

    Yes.. there is continuity.. and fuses are fine.. I really dunno whatelse to check O.o.
    I am also thinking to follow the 4.8 voltage from the ceonnector to the battery and check where it is interrupted.. but it's not so easy >.<
