Smile Nintendo 3DS will not Charge/Turn on

Hello all, My name is Steve. My daughters Nintendo 3DS is not turning on. We plugged it up all night and it shows the red/orange light as it is charging however when unplugged and the power button is pressed it does not turn on.

Does anyone have any ideas? I think it is the battery but not sure.

Thank you for any advise. I appreciate it.
Steve

Did you drop/spill anything on the 3DS? If you spilt anything on the 3DS it could be the battery. Does anyone you know have a other battery, so you can switch the batterys over to check it?

vinny44484 - will they just exchange it like that without any questions asked?

Fish - no my daughter was sure that she did not spill anything on it. She said that she was waiting for a friend to join a game with her and while she was joining her 3DS just turned off. She assumed it was the battery so she charged it all day then nothing. I can ask her friend to see if she would allow us to exchange each others battery to test the battery. That's a great idea before I buy one.

Thanks
