Why won't my Nintendo 2DS power on?
After charging my device overnight,when turning the power switch to ON, the 2DS screen remains black and the power LED remains unlit.
The Nintendo 2DS is a handheld gaming device developed as an entry level version of the Nintendo 3DS with nearly identical hardware, but without the 3D upper screen function.
Had this happen to my son's 2DS today, and I was able to fix it. For clarity's sake, my issue was this: no matter if the 2DS was connected to the AC adapter or not, when the power button was pressed, the blue LED would light for a couple of seconds and then extinguish. If you listened closely, you could hear the speaker "pop" when the LED turned off.
How did I fix it? Follow along:
I had this same issue. It seemed to work again after I removed the back, reseated the battery back in, but the was a metallic rattle in the inside. When I took off the back fully there was a silver colored metal plate that had come unsoldered. Anyone know what the function of that plate was? 2ds turns on without it in there but need to know if it could cause issues if not put back on. Don't want any hazards.
I had my 2ds for 1 and a half year but the system has been charged and was working perfectly but 2 hours later it wasn't working no liquid have been spilt on the device, SD card inserted, and device is fully charged.
Please help me fix my 2ds.
My 2ds is the one thing I spent a lot of money on.
I have a 2ds Xl i got around Christmas I moved out of my moms and came back a month later to get it but it would turn on only the blue light for a second and a pop noise.
Now i read all these comments tried removing and reinserting all the ribbons inside, Took the battery out and put it back and still nothing. Any more tasks I could perform would be much appreciated Thank you!
Make sure the battery is making contact. My son dropped his and afterwards didn't work. I took the back top cover off. The two very small screws if you can find a screwdriver that size. I took up the slop in battery compartment by folding a small piece of paper towel behind and doubled up to put pressure against battery and prongs. Works fine again.
