Question about Nintendo DS Console
Nintendo flashes when power on then cuts off, I think it either got wet or was dropped at some point. Any suggestions?
Most times its from a fall, the ribbon cable gets jarred and the pin connections are so small that two of them cross and short out. they have to be perfectly aligned. I know its a hassle to ship it but if you take it apart you may break the power switch on the circuit board rendering it completely useless. they are very fragile.
I'll fix the connection for you for $10
if the ribbon cable got pinched in the left hinge it will do the same thing, but then the top screen will need to be replaced, I can do that for $24.
I won't know until I take it apart.
