Introduzione

Your New Nintendo 2DS XL may need to have its motherboard replaced at some point in its life. This guide aims to provide step by step instructions on how to safely and effectively replace the motherboard. Before working on your New Nintendo 2DS XL, make sure the AC adapter is disconnected from the New Nintendo 2DS XL and that it is completely powered off.

  1. Before starting the disassembly, remove

    • The stylus

    • Any game cartridge

    • The SD card

    This is a great repair instructional, but I would advise also looking at the below video link. (I used both.) Sometimes watching 2 repair guides can help when you think you think you’re stuck. For example, I had a really hard time getting the hinge off!

    (HINT: Works best if you rotate it 180 degrees, so that you are repairing it from the same perspective as the technician)

  2. Unscrew the four 6mm tri-point screws located at the four corners of the bottom panel.

    The Y0 was too big; I ended up using a Y00 and that worked fine

    Would not recommend using a Y000 like I tried to do

  3. Be careful when separating the bottom panel from the front casing to avoid breaking the three cables connected to the motherboard (two on each side and one in the rear). Using a spudger, separate the back panel from the front casing by gently prying around the panel.

    • There are many clips along the hinge of the case, so it is recommended to work your way along one short side and the two long sides before finishing the last short side.

    I unfortunately took off the base of one when trying to pull apart. Is there a fix or will it not be broken?

  5. Using a spudger, lift out the battery. Be aware that there is a sticky pad holding the battery into its tray. It may be necessary to use multiple tools to gently pry the battery away from the tray and motherboard.

    Some might see this as an optional step. But you probably do NOT want to skip this. I did, and now I have malfunctions on the Nintendo (touch screen functionality not working, possibly as a result of shorts from skipping this step.)

    Do not just pull up “latches”, two of these are not zif connectors and pulling the top off will break it! I now have a dead 2DS XL because I followed this guide.

    Pressing the ZL button on device turns system off.

On step 6, what is the top left circled connector for?

The screen on the device I am repairing keeping going black and this connector is damaged. (it doesn’t clamp shut)

Can anyone recommend where to buy a replacement board connector?
