    I was on the home menu when it happened, I was pressing R and L buttons without paying attention (whatching TV), then I noticed the led color. Now as soon as I press power to power it on, it's stuck at pink. :huh:

    possible it's trying to show red green and blue at once, (which would be white) if the red is stronger, it seems it could make it look pink.

    I didn't know it could make that color. That's really funny

    Since yesterday it has been fading from pink to white, and now it is orange. A nand backup won't help since the LED info is stored at the MCU.

    Have you tried opening CTRAging? It sets the LED to blue after it starts (only if you don't go into the menu)

    The notifications work fine, the problem is when it should be off, it's pink/yellow.

    But have you tried CTRAging anyways? It maybe resets the LED stuff on launching. It should be worth a try.

    It's an O3DS anyways, so I can't launch it.

    I"m not sure if there"s something that can chnage the info in the MCU that" software side, you may can get it off by Hardware but it will be more to do and you can brick it by that way. I think that if no the only you can do is send to Nintendo to repair, but you need to send them it unmodified and by the way the most probably is that they are going to update it, so it may be a problem to send them for you if you use CFW.:unsure:

    You just need to learn to be accepting of your 3DS's sexuality.

    Try removing the battery. This did the trick for me.

    That's kinda funny. But try the battery thing, or some electric tape (black one) to hide the light?

    What happens if you get some LED-worthy notifications?

    Eh, doesn't seem like a big problem. Ity's looks pretty neat in fact. I thought this thread was going to be something like "my 3DS doesn't work it only shows a pink LED". You should be fine
