Question about Nintendo DSi Matte Blue Console
When I turn my Dsi, the bottom screen flashes (not the top) and then turns back off. I can plug it in the charger and it will charge, but it doesn't help anything. I've tried removing the battery for a bit and putting it back in, but still does the same thing. I'm hearing some stuff like my top screen might not work (because only the bottom screen flashes) or maybe it's from water damage or something. But, I really want to fix it, so... What do I do? Thanks
You almost certainly have one or more blown capacitors on the board (probably just one). You will need to open it up, find the blown capacitor (convex top, instead of flat), and replace it. If you are unsure about doing soldering work on a board, get a friend who does this kind of thing. It's not expensive.

This is a sign that the battery has had either a leak or a malfunction and needs to be replaced. If you have anyone that has a battery you can use, see if that will work, otherwise you will need to get a replacement battery. If your system is still under warranty, Nintendo will happily replace it for you.

You're not going to find manual support for a flash card like the R4.
Your best bet is to just reformat the SD card and start over again.
There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page.
If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it.
Best of luck!
