    I stopped playing my 3ds for a month ish and I just came back to it today and it powers on (the blue light stays on) but the screen is black. It was working fine before my month break. I can launch the luma3ds menu perfectly fine with select+power and also the gm9 menu that comes up with start+power. All of the tutorials I've found online is where the 3ds doesn't power on at all so all I've tried is removing my custom theme.

    Let me know if you need any more info.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Have you tried to update the boot.firm file from Luma3DS to the latest version? :)

    Does it work correctly if you remove the SD card?

    That was my next question. :)

    That's a shame! How is your CFW configuration? Are you using A9LH or B9S?

    Fixed, I removed my custom home screen music .ogg file from the SD card.

    So, the problem was a .ogg file on your SD card, but trying to remove your SD card entirely didn't help at all..?

    If you do not have Luma installed to your 3DS NAND, then you might want to consider doing that.
