    hi all, my 3ds XL's light is blinking when i plug in the charger recently. And sometime, the light stop blinking and keep on for around 2-3mins, then switch off itself.
    I have already replaced a new ac charger, but the problem is still there.

    any one know what's the problem and how to deal with it?

    Sounds like maybe your battery is dying? Try reseating the battery, see if that helps.

    If reseating the battery doesn't fix it, your battery is definitely bad.

    Does it happen when you move the plug in the 3ds? Maybe the connector in the 3ds is loose

    no, i try to move the plug in any position, still having the same problem. It is so strange that i can charge the 3DS sometime , but only for 2-3mins until the charging light has gone...

    The blinking light is pretty much letting you know the console is getting power, but there's no battery.

    the situation is so weird that the 3ds can be charged, but only for 2-3mins each time before the orange light turns off
