    Hello, I was playing smash bros online when it suddenly froze when I was online, I pressed the power button to just return to the home menu (so i didnt turn it off completely) I went to the friends list and then it froze there as well. Now when I turn on the 3ds its just a black screen and the wifi doesnt turn on (the yellow light doesnt turn on). I tried restoring my nand backup with one that I made back in the end of july but that didn't help it's still boots up on a black screen. The luma menu and godmode9 menu still boot up just fine it's just trying to boot up to the regular home menu that boots up with just a black screen. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like possible SD data corruption. Try booting without your profile data on it.

    This is a common issue, it happens with my old R4i Gold card too which I have permanently inserted, and sometimes after cleaning the 3ds it gets shifted a little and the contacts aren't good anymore, usually a removal and firm reinsertion fixes the problem, but completely removing the card is also a solution if I don't need any old DS games.

    Also sometimes when a card (or a flashcart) has it's ROM corrupted, inserting it while the console is in the home menu will cause it to freeze, and powering on the console with the card inserted will cause a black screen
