    I brought a new 3DS, and it came with a firmware error, i touch on Icon's and touch to open but it dosen't open.

    No one application open, no game, no settings notthing.

    What can i do ? I think to do a hard reset but i don't know how.

    You can see the error in my video: http://youtu.be/2GBpdmBDhSQ

    Thanks everybody.

    EDIT: If I remove the SD Card and open some apllication or game, the screen stay black. I don't know if this is normal.

    Someone creating an account to spread lies and make the bricking rumor look real? I'm not touching a download from a new joiner. Possible hardcore porn, a virus or worse in the download.

    No I don't. First ever post is contains a download. That sends all kinds of red flags. If he didn't want to get reported right off the bat, he should of used youtube.

    1) Take your 3DS and remove the Battery
    2) Put it in the Microwave
    3) Set to 30 Minutes on High
    Enjoy!
    Nah, just kidding! You can try to do a hard reset, but your best bet is to send it to ninty. They'll help you, they've fixed five of my DS lites...

    4shared hosts videos also, which is what he has done
    lol so its not a RED FLAG as you say
    and why would you report without investigating?


    lol you can always try step 1 then put the battery back in and test
    i wouldnt follow step 2 and 3 tho lol

    lol no. I saw the video already and the error is weird. The system boots, and it brings you to system menu. But if you click any of the icons (settings, game cart, nintendo zone, etc) it won't enter, it's stuck in there, you hear the blinking sound. The system menu is NOT freezing, but simply stuck and the "clicky" sound happens too (once you run a app from there) but that's it.

    Maybe a shortcut to system menu settings will allow this guy update (or system format) the 3DS to fix his problems

    4shared require an account to see the video :(

    Youtube, or even Filetrip.net require account only for the uploader :P

    Hmm first of all contact Nintendo about this issue, send them a mail with the video link. They can help you. This is something I've never seen before, I've had a sort of same issue, I could not press an icon(start an icon whatever) with a few presses. I'd wait a few seconds and it worked. >.>;;; But your issue is different

    (Everything sound Spanish I guess so here is a spanish Nintendo website :P)

    Portugal maybe?

    I do NOT intent to insult you by my bad Portuguese or Spanish, but yeah it was just a guess sorry ^^;;

    He was erring on the side of caution. After all, it's the moderation staff's job to investigate these things; not his.
    Were I in his shoes I would have been suspicious as well.

    If you have downloaded games, you're kinda screwed. Calling Nintendo is the best fix if you're still in warranty.
