    I have a N3ds with a9lh.
    Every time I press the power button, i see the luma settings menu pop up for less than 1 second and the 3ds turns off.
    Anyone knows how to fix this??

    The same problem. I bought a console in an online store, it was already faulty. Apparently someone from the store staff hacked the console, but what they did with it after it is not known. I hate these idiots. I did not find a solution, I had to call Nintendo's technical support. Have to wait a month. Sadness.

    Did you try updating Luma (manually replace arm9loaderhax.bin on sd root) and then holding down select on boot?

    Try a new SD card - it's a bit weird, you'd think that if it was a faulty SD card it wouldn't turn on at all or it would boot from CTR NAND. But worth a try.

    Popping sound means you have a ribbon cable unplugged somewhere. But the screen turning briefly on is strange. It should just not turn on.
