    I came here to try and get a more specialized response vs the other forums I frequent. I'm a regular modder so throw any and all suggestions at me please.

    I bought two 3ds' with issues recently. One had a broken power pin, replaced it.

    This other one however is completely unresponsive upon boot up. The home screen shows, but There are no icons on the screen. The only controls that work are the power button and the wifi switch. I tried removing the battery but that didn't help. Disconnected the touch screen, circle pad, sd card reader, wifi, ir, and home buttons. But I still got nothing.

    It seems like the system is completely halted. Date is 1/1, system time stays as 0:00
    Maybe this is a failed updated? Or bricked.
    Which i doubt since this came from a lot of other things that was mostly kids stuff.

    What do you guys think it might be? It doesnt seem to be liquid damage.
