    Heya!

    I have a few problems with my New Nintendo 3DS system! I have had this system for quite a while and recently it started to do weird things. It started to turn off when you shake it around and even when it is in it's case and in my backpack while travelling, it turns off.

    So I started testing around and it turns off/falls out in the following cases:

    - when I open/close the lid with a bit of force
    - when I tap on the back of the system
    - when the system is in my backpack
    - when let my system fall on something soft

    So my conclusion is, that I probably have to put a piece of paper between the back cover and the battery. Do you guys agree with my conclusion or is it another problem? it could not be related to the software I've installed eh? (Luma) If needed, I can give some more details but I thought, this should be enough for now.

    It happened to me in the past, too. I solved putting a piece of cardboard between the battery and the back cover.

    It might be a ribbon cable problem. Try other solutions first, but you might eventually have to take it apart and reseat one of the ribbon cables

    A little update: I've put a piece paper in between my battery and my battery cover and it works great. :D
