    Ok, I HAVE to be the stupidest man in the world.

    In attempt to get the thing out that was stuck in my stylus holder, i spilled water inside the stylus holder, thinking that the stylus holder has it's own space.
    What do you think would happen.

    And now I let it dry and even used a hair dryer for a bit.

    Now that I turned on the thing, everything works EXCEPT the display, poggers.
    Any ideas? (instead of getting a brain, im already working on that one)
    or at the very least, is there a way to get my sd card to work on my OTHER 3ds?

    (also dont worry the sd card was removed thankfully)

    Not sure how much damage you did, open it up and dry out all the way, you probably damaged some component by putting water into the unit and turning it on if you did.

    Yep. Also I deeply regret my life decisions, just sayin'.

    edit: is it at least possible to get my sd card to work on my other 3ds?

    data are encrypted unless you decrypted the save like with checkpoint and jksv.

    It is no good if you turn it on or if the unit was on when it was spoiled with water, you can try to dry it up and see what happens, if you only have legal content you can request Nintendo to do a system transfer to another unit,

    If you haven't already exported the saves you want with JKSM/Checkpoint (which you regularly should), you can use PC software to manually re-crypt your SD files, it can just be a pain depending on what you want to move. Alternatively, if you don't care about the SD data and NAND savedata (things like friendcode, friends, face raider savedata, miis) of the other 3DS, you could do something easier to mimic what a system transfer does. Also, yes, you can call Nintendo and have them transfer your NNID, but that won't transfer your saves.

    Edit: I should also add that all this (other than calling Nintendo ofc) requires at least a movable.sed from your broken system's NAND or ideally a full NAND backup, which you should already have. If you don't, there's a .firm file I can send you that will automatically make one without any user input when you boot it.

    (ok ill say it one more time: im f'ing STUPID)
    First, nintendo doesn't accept repairs anymore. And if they still did, i had many titles that were installed through .cia files, so that's out of the question.
    Also how do i re-crypt my sd files (because im really desparate and STUPID)

    Oh no!

    That wasn't a very smart idea.

    Now is a good time to overcome your antipathy towards screwdrivers.

    Open that thing up. You can't make things worse anymore. Make sure to not rip the camera cable when removing the back cover and use a fitting screwdriver – the screws can be stripped easily. Pictures on ifixit.com → https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nintendo+2DS+Motherboard+Replacement/35842

    Please remove the motherboard according to above guide and upload good photos.
    ============

    ninfs will be able to decrypt the save data if you can provide movable.sed

    There is a reason why important saves should be backed up from time to time with JKSM and/or Checkpoint.

    In any case: Good luck!
