I just bought nintendo old 3ds original model in a thrift shop. It won’t turn on at all. No light, nothing happened when charge plugged, both fuses are OK.
There is slight dirty on the right side near power button (image below), but nothing really damaged on the visual after i cleaned it.
And then, i checked out there’s no connectivity between positive battery terminal with charging port because there’s a bit of corrosion on the battery terminal, so i made this jumper (image below)
Because the original battery is dead, I tested it with DSi battery, which have similar voltage.
After all, it still won’t turn on, I have no idea. So, the question is:
- What could go wrong? any other things that I should check?
- is jumper on battery terminal necessary?
