    Soooooo, dunno if this has ever happened to anyone before on here, but my o3ds xl was booting up, when I was looking at a video. I looked back to see a solid red light on the top LED. The bottom stayed blue (charged, as normal) The 3DS wasn't being charged, and I never installed any type of program that would make it do that.
    Oh, and yes, the system booted up correctly with no fishy behavior. This is the first time it's done this. It doesn't happen when I boot the system up now.


    Is my 3ds plotting a nation-wide handheld revolution against mankind?

    Send. Help.

    MCU glitch maybe? That is pretty weird.

    One of the things it handles is the notification LED.

    That's a strange glitch but nothing to worry about

    It can only be attributable to human error.

    Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

    Maybe you just had a friend online? The LED will be orange in that case (easily confused with red).
