Any idea why a DSi XL would turn off by itself? (Not a Battery Issue)

    The thread says it. I was playing with my new R4i Gold 3DS RTS on my DSi XL, and the thing just totally shut off without warning. When I switched it back on, the battery was still fully charged, so I can't imagine it's that, and I didn't touch the power button, as that would've just reset the console. It has to be held to turn it off. Any ideas?

    Fuse blown?
    Loose connection?

    I gotta tell you, I have an original DSi, and sometimes, while it's in sleep mode it just completely turns off for no reason.

    My mario special edition dsixl has never done that.

    Just because the battery was full does not mean the voltage couldnt drop to low suddenly.

    Well, I turn it back on and the battery icon is still full, so I'm not sure if my problem is an internal issue or something along the lines of that...

    Mine would occasionally do that when the battery was loose. So just unscrew the cover, reseat it, boom.
