Extremely easy actually. there's a panel on the bottom, it should have a wifi looking symbol next to it, if not just remove panels until you find it, it's a small rectangular card with 2 wires on it that just snap on. take out the one screw securing the card, insert the new one, and installation is the reverse of removal.

My wifi wont turn on my iphone 4S why

common problem with iphone 4s. Means your wifi chip is disconnected from circuit board or defective. Some small iphone shops fix it by resoldering, but under some conditions it may happen again. High/low temperatures, drops and so on. If phone is still under warranty - apple will replace it free.

Iphone Wifi Doesn't Work

Check the internal antenna for connection to the circuit board, alot of times these will fracture due to being dropped or bumped around, if the antenna has become unattached to the board very carefully re-solder the connection.

Wifi error.(21)

Did you drop your device? It`s rather hard to brake the integrated wifi. Does everything else work? If yes, than wifi in your device is dead. Return to the seller (if within warranty) or find out if there is any chance to replace the main board. The latter option is very costly, circa 250 bucks. If your lucky enough to find the replacement board anyway.

When I turn the power switch on, both the screens just stay blank and nothing happens!


There are a couple of reasons you could be experiencing this problem. I will list them below along with options.

  • Liquid Damage
  • Wireless Wifi Board has gone bad
  • Wireless Wifi Board is no longer attached
  • Power Management Chip is no longer good
1.) Liquid Damage - If you're experiencing liquid damage this system would have to be repaired with possibly a board switch. But, usually when you have liquid damage you will see blinking screens before the Nintendo DS goes dead.

2.) Bad Wireless Wifi Board / Un-attached - Your wireless Wifi board is one of the pieces on the board that keeps your system functioning. If you've recently dropped your system, these small boards are famous for popping off. Good news is, they're easily re-attachable. (Seriously, a 5 year old could do it) Bad news is, you would have to open your Nintendo DS and this causes frustration. Youtube HowTo video

3.) Bad Power Management Chip - This chip controls video/sound and many more functions. If this has gone bad, you would need this replaced or have a new board.

Options 1 and 3 would be best to seek a repair shop. Option 2, you could do yourself to find out if thats the problem.

I wish you luck and Hope I helped!

I would try a software restore first. If that doesn't fix it bring it to Apple. If Apple doesn't replace it for you, you can find the logic board at iPhone 3GS Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at iPhone Repair Guide.

My ds console doesn't power up but green light is on...have tried a new battery still no good. Brand new ...son's Xmas gift


Sorry to hear that. This problem is caused by 2 things.

1.) Wifi Board is bad
2.) Motherboard is bad

HOWEVER, the Wifi board may not be bad, but the DS could have been dropped and the Wifi-Board fell off the motherboard.

SOLUTION: Open up the DS and look to the left. You will notice a small rectangular board sitting on top of the motherboard. If it's off, re-attach it and BINGO!
