Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I have a nintendo ds lite and bought after market parts to fix it but in the process of putting it back together broke the wifi antenna would this cause the system not to come on if the wifi antenna or wifi board is left out if so can I soldier the antenna to the wifi board?
Doubtful, though I've not had one with a gimped antenna so I can't say for sure...
Probability is very high that failure to start is related to the ribbon cable(s) not being seated properly into the connector(s). This is a common issue during re-assembly. Often, these cables LOOK like they are re-seated properly - but they are not.
First suspect is the ribbon cable that passes through the hinge. Where it connects into the top board is where I encounter problems often. If this cable is not seated deeply enough into the connector - and perfectly perpendicular - your reassembled DS will NOT boot.
I always temporarily snap everything together and test boot prior to screwing everything back together. Even with care and experience I have to go back to this connector and re-seat the cable about 1 out of every 2 times.
