    My 3ds sound slider is broken, and the volume is constantly at max. I'm too lazy and too cheap to have it repaired, so I'm wondering if theres something i can do that will disable sound all together.

    There's an outside slider and a inside one. Sliding the inside one will change it.

    Cover the speakers with something? That way, the sound should be muffled... I think.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    You could get a pair of broken headphones and leave the jack inside.

    A Philips #00 screwdriver should work.

    This is a much better solution, so when you want to play with sound take the broken headphones off...

    To anyone who's wondering, I have everything fixed now. The sound slider works perfectly. When i opened it up the outside slider moved the inside slider just fine, and when I turned on the the 3ds(the the back open, and the guts still showing) everything worked fine. When i put everything back together though it stopped working again. I opened it multiple times and it kept doing the same thing. Eventually i went to open up the back again but kept the 3ds on the whole time as a test. When unscrewing the screw closest to the sound slider it just worked. For whatever reason, having that one screw to tight broke the sound slider, not sure why, but i just left that a little more lose and everything is fixed.
