Nintendo 3DS Charge but won't turn on.

Alex D.


Recently I got a 3ds - The small first version.

When I plugged it into the charger, I noticed the light turn on, but when I try to turn the device on - nothing!

The lights turn off when I press the power buttom and after a few secounds - turn on again without the decive coming to life.

theres no crack on the screen.

Could be a bad battery.. You can get them from Ebay
Check the F2 fuse next to the battery contacts (for the 3ds it located underneath, other side of the logic/mother board). If the fuse is blown, then then system will charge for 10 sec and then stop.
You need to charge it longer. If no response continues, try replacing the battery.
