Not charging, power adapter solder points damaged
I have a dsi xl that wouldnt charge, i installed a new power connector and it worked but a wk later it would charge only if the cable was in a certain position so i knew the points werent making full contact.
I resoldered the points but the pads lifted, i tried fixing it with no luck. Perhaps my iron was too hot and lifted the pads. Anyways i am no electronics expert but i was trying to find the via points, i found the ground easily and i think i found the power point which is connected to the resistor. I soldered 2 wires to the 2 points on the AC plug and plugged it in but no charge light. So i think i may not have found the power via. Either that or i damaged the resistor, i cant be sure.
I would hate to buy a new mobo. I know it can be fixed, but my skills are not in electronics.
