Help! When i tap my 2ds on the back or shake it a bit it shuts off. this might sound like its not a big deal but this thing is almost unusable. i can only play it if i lay it on a table or another flat surface like that. ITS SO ANNOYING. im pretty sure this is a hardware issue since this doesn't happen to my friends 2ds and i dropped it just before this started. so what now?

So i've removed and reconnected all ribbon cables. BUT the metal plate that was supposed to sit on top of the cpu was loose on all ends, it was just moving around everytime i shook the 2ds. so i just removed it. but it works fine now. Thanks!
