what makes you think the fuses are damaged - what does the ds do/ not do?

(when you try and turn it on, when you plug the charger in etc)

sounds like one of the fuses to me...  do you have a multimeter? you can test them if you want or if you're ready to solder you'd might as well try manually bridging f2, then f1... one of them will surely bring your DS back to life..

lots of info here:

Put your meter in RX1 mode and put a probe at each end of the fuse, if the fuse is fine the meter should be showing a value less than 1. Anything greater than that would be a broken fuse.

I wouldn't bother with a fuse myself but i'm a lazy ass Wink seriously though: bridged one of my own DS's about a year ago with no problems, plus have done a couple of mates with no issues.

I'm almost positive your problem is going to be with fuse F2. The solution, as ratx said, is simply to bridge the fuse with some solder and a small bit of wire.  Make sure you don't get solder on other components.


DS short circuit + blown fuse != "Bricker"
