My DSi will not power up

  No power, even with power adapter attached, completely dead
  Charging/power/wifi lites are dark
  Top/bottom screens are dark; no flashing

  No liquid was spilled on it



   Replaced battery

   Replaced power board

   Fuses F1/F2 tested okay
   Bottom/Top screen power continuity tested okay
   No loose wires


Ever run into a problem like this before?  What am I missing in my troubleshooting?

Re: My DSi will not power up

System won't turn on

If you are not able to turn the system on, please review the following:

•The power button was designed to be somewhat difficult to press down to help prevent accidentally shutting the system off during use. Make sure you are pressing down with enough pressure.

•It's possible the rechargeable battery has been depleted. Try using the Nintendo DSi while the AC Adapter is plugged into the system and a working outlet (how to).


If you are not able to power on the system after plugging it into the AC Adapter, then it appears the system may need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

If you have tried the steps above, it sounds like your DSi will need to be repaired. To set up your repair, call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 and the best staff in the world will help you from there.
