    Soooo I haven't been on this forum since I got my Android phone and also my friend fried my DSi motherboard so I kinda lost interest.

    I just purchased a 3DS but now I'm looking at my DSi and I see how much work I put into it (it's a black and white DSi)

    It just won't turn on. Now, on a DS lite it's just taking out the old motherboard and replace it with a new one, I've done that once...

    With the DSi, it's different because there are two pieces to the motherboard and I can't really tell what fried: The main big piece that holds the screen ($74) or the small power supply board with the D-pad and battery ($12).

    The reason I ask is because it could be cheap to fix it or expensive if I know what to replace.....
