    So today when i tried to open my 3ds (which was charged by dsi adaptor whole night) none of my applications were working. When i press a or open nothing happens except the clicking sound. Same with games. It also dossnt read my SD card and when i try to open camera or the lightning settings the system freezes. The items (battery level, coins etc.) on the top screen also doesnt show up. I can hear the menu sound btw.
    Anybody know whats going on?
    The thing that disturbs me is that there arent any nintendo services in my country.

    Please excuse my english
    Thanks :)

    EDIT:

    Now nothing works. The 3ds boots up with black screen and no sound :( happaned after i went to sleep. when i woke up it was like this....

    Your English is fine. B-)

    Anyway, if taking out the battery doesn't help, have you run a system update on the 3DS lately? It almost sounds like something went wrong during an update. If so, maybe trying to run it again could help.

    I've noticed that it takes a while for my 3ds to load the eshop games...and while they show up, I can see other apps or cartridge but when I open them nothing happens (pretty much what you describe). The 3ds makes the "click" sound, but the apps won't open until all the elements are loaded.

    If your 3ds is not reading your SD card, it might be stuck trying to read stuff. Try to format your SD card or something :/ Hope it works.

    Well there's your problem. The 3DS refuses to load anything before it has finished reading data from the SD card.
    Try running ScanDisk on your SD card.

    Your WiFi-module is defective or not correctly connected probably. The same happens, if i remove my WiFi-module.

    Try without a SD card and see if you still have the same problem. If you do there might be something wrong with your SD card slot that is making the 3DS unable to read it.
