I have an original 3ds xl. It suddenly stopped charging and does not turn on anymore as well. Before it stopped charging, the charging light flashed orange for like 3-5 seconds and then turned off again. I tried charging it with my Dsi charger as well as purchased a new 3ds charger but it won't just charge anymore or turn on . What could the fault be and how can I repair it ? Its really difficult to get a 3ds repaired where I leave therefore I would do it myself so can anyone guide me what the issue could be ?

If it is a purely hardware issue you can try to fix it depending on the problem. If you believe it is software related, you will have to explain in better detail what versions of CFW and what did you did if you accidently updated the system firmware, etc etc.

If it is a screen issue, you will have to buy a new screen depending on which one died on you.

If it is a fuse, you will have to open it up and replace the fuse.

Help with a teardown, you can follow one on ifixit. https://www.ifixit.com/Search?query=3ds


Nintendo no longer services the 3DS and all variants in some parts of the world. You may have to either fix it yourself or find someone that fixes electronics in your area if the Nintendo of your region no longer services the 3DS and variants.
