    First off, you really should buy a precision screw driver set so you don't end up stripping the screws. That's kind of a must. My guess would be a possible bad solder joint on the slider? I dunno. It's just a guess. I don't really know a lot about these 3DSes. If you could get a decent screw driver set, you could take it apart and take some high res images of the area of the board where the slider is.

    You can turn the 3D effect off using parental controls.

    The speaker cable is either damaged or there's dirt or corrosion on the P7 connector preventing the cable from making proper contact. If you get the right screwdriver you might want to try cleaning and reseating the speaker cable. Usually this kind of problem means the cable is actually physically torn slightly, but if you're lucky it may just be contact problems with the connector that can be solved by cleaning.

    If the OP could take good pictures after opening it up, we might be able to give a better diagnosis. I like yours the best though. I was thinking it could be a bad solder joint or something. Maybe the OP can try wiggling the slider switch a little, just to see if it starts working. You know, hold it up, while having it turned all the way down, see if 3D turns off, etc.
