    I just recently purchased an AceKard 2i, been enjoying it for a little under a day. I wanted to try and connect to the internet to check something on google, and when I loaded up the Opera Browser, the DS froze. I turned it off and then back on, and all I get is the message:

    "An error has occurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for help troubleshooting."

    Now, the browser has worked for me before, so it leads me to think that it was because the Acekard was in the slot.
    I currently can't do anything with my DSi, so if anyone has any suggestions, I would be appreciative.

    Edit:

    Things that have not worked:

    Booting the DSi with the Acekard
    Booting the DSi without the Acekard
    Booting the DSi with several choices of retail games
    Removing the battery for a long period of time, then booting Will try for longer this time.

    It should work without the ak2i in the slot right? I have never heard of this happening before, and I have personally been on the opera dsi browser with my ak2i in the slot. THIS IS W31rD

    Does not boot at all. Not with an Acekard, not empty, not with a game.

    You just got PWN'd by the big N, and it probably happened because of a site you went to was harming the ds through cookies or buffer overflow and etc. lol PWN'D

    shut up. act an age older then you are mentally. this is a serious issue and you spit back crap that isn't factual. svchost is an experienced nds user, i seriously doubt with all my ability to doubt that he went to a website running a buffer overflow exploit.

    Except that I only really used it once to see if it would work, and the second time it crashed before it even finished loading.

    Edit: Would playing HullBreach cause this?

    Have you tried taking the battery out and putting it back in? Other than that I'm out of ideas besides sending it back to Nintendo.

    I actually just tried that about ten minutes ago. Took the battery out, let it sit, put it back in. Nothing.

    Took me that long to find the jewellers kit to get the damn thing out.

    this is just crazy. acekard should replace your dsi, if their kit really bricked it. i want to get to the bottom of this. you should ask acekard if they would take the ak2i back and run some tests on it. it would suck if every ak2i has the potential to kill the dsi.

    Just to point this out, it's not the AceKard that's bricked, it's his DSi which is pretty interesting. I haven't heard of anything like this and if you already tried removing the battery, then I guess the only thing left is to call up Nintendo and probably send it in.

    Just a crazy but probably useless question... Did the DSi manual happen to help?

    Do manuals ever help... seriously most times the troubleshooting section of electronics is bullshit... Is the battery charged? When charging the battery is the charger plugged into an outlet? If the screen can not be seen make sure the DS is on.

    this sounds similar to the way n5 cards would blow a fuze on the DS, which is maybe what happened to your DSi.

    If a fuse blew, I would think it wouldn't even power on. There is a possibility that the AceKard might have caused the problem because of the timing.

    Wow, I didn't expect to get so many replies. Here's where I currently stand:

    I have emailed Acekard about the brick. I told them about what happened, but i'm not going to ask them to replace the DSi if they don't want to. After all, it's brand new and I can easily take it back to EB Games or ship it to Nintendo.

    TheWingless: The manual was superbly useless. My favorite part is where it asks me to power on the DS and try to recreate what went wrong and see if the issue re-occurs.

    raing3: The DS powers on fine. It's when the OS tries to boot, the screen goes white like normal, then black, and then the error message.

    remove anything from slot1 and take your battery out of the dsi for about 20 minutes or so to let it completely run out of power then put it back in and see if it will boot.

    Sounds kinda like you have an old non DSi flashcart in, maybe it thinks there's one stuck in there?

    Have you tried putting in a normal DS game and turning it on?

    Normmatt: The battery has been sitting out of the DS for about two hours now, just tried again. Nothing. Tried without the Acekard.

    ShatteredScreens: No, as I stated earlier it does not boot using any games. I have tried Phoenix Wright: Ace Attourney, Pokemon Platinum, and Kirby Superstar Ultra.

    Thanks for all the help and suggestions, guys!
