Hi, OK, so I broke my DS somehow, and I was hoping you experts could help me figure out what broke/how to fix it. I have an original DS, not the DS Lite. So basically, I've had it since 2007... and the screen started getting dust between the LCD and the plastic screen cover. So I thought I'd try disassembling and re-assembling it before my new shell comes. (As it's also really scratched up, and the plastic that connects the hinge to the top screen is breaking off...) So I took it apart, carefully unscrewing everything, etc. I took care of wiping the case clean, and proceeded to put it back together. But there was a problem: It wouldn't turn on. So I took it all back apart again, where now I am sitting with just the circuit boards in front of me. The first thing I tried was only having the bottom screen (and the LCD)... as maybe it was a problem with the top screen. But nothing happened when I attached the battery and pressed Power. If I plugged it in, the orange light flickered... and if I pressed Power before the orange light shut off, the screen would flicker and shut off. I put the battery in, the orange light would stay on but it would still flicker if I pressed Power. So upon doing some research, I found a common problem was blown fuses. However, I tested each with a multimeter, and there was continuity in both F1 and F2. The common symptoms matched mine, but people said it would make weird noises. So I attached the ribbon cable and antenna that go to the upper screen (and speakers)... only this time, it wouldn't work at all. The orange light would flicker, but nothing happened upon pressing power... no sounds, no flashing green LED/backlight, nothing. So I figured it had something to do with the upper screen as well. And then I discovered something interesting. If I had the ribbon cables connected, no battery in it, and plugged it in... If I kept rapidly pressing Power, the orange light would just stay on. Nothing happens with the green light or screens, but the orange light stays on. So I'm curious if anyobody knows what's going on in my DS. It doesn't look like a fuse problem - but what would it be? Did I fry the motherboard due to static discharge or something? I think at this point I'll buy some cheap one on eBay with a broken screen and use that motherboard. Unless you guys have some suggestions.
