Charge indicator blinking orange, will not power up
Cracked open my sons DSi to look into the right shoulder button not functioning. Put it back together and button still not functional. Opened it up again to clean button better, now the DSi will not power up and the orange charge light only blinks when plugged into wall charger. When I hit the power button, the blue light comes on for a second or two then goes out. Left it charging overnight with no success. Is it more likely that the battery now needs to be replaced or did I damage some internal component the second time I cleaned it?
Discovered cause of blinking orange light! Opened the DSi to make sure the battery contacts were all in housing as they should be and noticed that the red and black wires going between battery terminals and circuit board looked odd. The black wire was completely seated in the slot but the red wire was pulled out just enough for me to see exposed copper. Pushed red wire all the way into slot and replaced battery. DSi now charges and powers up just fine.

by the way blowing into the trigger button that doesn't work is a good way to start with a faulty trigger button. alot of times dust gets in there but since you have torn it apart already did you check the rubber thing that sits on top of the button it's white/light grey if the circle isn't broken it's just dust. since it's a dsi look on the left/right of the side that's not working and take a deep breathe and blow into the machine really hard.
