    I am having problems with my 3ds, I don't know if its a hardware failure or if I did something on PKSM, closed the software while it was still "closing the software" by turning it off and after a few hours turned it back on and all of a sudden it just blinks red when being turned on and just turns off after that.

    I have Luma 3ds installed to so, I don't know if its anything homebrew related or if the 3ds is ded.

    Could it be that something was corrupted?
    PS: It was low on battery to, so perhaps like an Apple Iphone it just gives te signal it has no more battery life?

    So I guess you can say, it was unfortunate I don't have a charger :P

    Blinking red usually means low battery

    I will charge it and go from there
    If that doesn't help it's probably the battery becoming lose or something or needs to be replaced.

    Wish me luck :P

    I was gonna ask if you had charged it yet, but then you posted at the same time I did saying you were gonna charge it.

    I had this same problem, i fixed it by removing the sdcard, placing it in a pc and re-inserting it in the 3ds.
    I even bought a new battery thinking it was that, but it was just that crap.
    Good Luck!!!

    I had this problem too. I managed to solve it by charging it with power.

    This was the problem, not enough battery lmao.

    Sorry for freaking out, I have just never had it happen to me before lol. And since I did something with the system and just shut it off, I thought that was the problem lol.
