sup temp,

since yesterday, if i turn on the w-lan switch on my 3DS i'll get the unfamous "An Error has ocurred..." screen right when my system begins to search for an accesspoint

i also noticed, that my mac address just consists of zeros :D
tried to format my beast but nothing has changed

it even never dropped to 'da floor iirc...so i don't think it's a broken hardware

should probably sending it to repair :hateit:


anyone else experienced this problem?
would be glad if i'm not the only one who encountered this so far :lol: (google doesn't find stuff)

now im really confused...
i browsed a little bit at the "Ask!" section and found out, that somebody got the exact same problem as me
he got it fixed with turning on the wi-fi, boot pkmn black, turn off wi-fi, leave the game, turn on wi-fi

well...that doesn't worked on my 3DS :D

guess i have no choice but sending it to repair, since updating is not possible (by the way, nintendo really should release executeable, manual updates like on the PSP...but i guess it would create a hackers paradise :ha: )

not editing on intention, the following win deserves it's own post:

if i shaked my 3DS, i noticed a clicking/ticking noise (i own an old wrecked PSP for years now...especially when a console is new, this usually indicates that something inside the system is not where it belongs to)
so i disassembled the battery case and backplate - and what do i see: the "R" button is not plugged into the board
so i plugged it in and - it works perfectly fine now :yaynds:
i knew i didn't have to sent it to them, also i can't find my bill for it - lucky me :creep:

now, another question running into my mind: WHY is the right shoulderbutton connected with the wi-fi :blink:
and why do i never used the "R" button for the past days? i didn't noticed that the button doesn't work :D

Just call nintendo since you probably got a dud console.

i am pretty sure that it's not
Well if there is a problem you can either go back to the shop and ask for a replacement or call nintendo, can't see much else to do apart from that.

well i fix'd it by myself already
contacted nintendo yesterday though but now there's no need to send it to them anymore :D

still curious about "R" being in a relationship the wi-fi switch o.o

anyways, while i'll redownload some ambassador stuff and rytmik-retrobits, ill enjoy my victory-cigartte :D

Thanks for your reply, but this is not due to missing updates. All online updates had been applied before this issues started...

I wasnt responding to you, someone made an earlier post about the 3DS needing manual updates. Make a thread if you want your problem solved.

why if it just takes up more room? Plus the OP asked if anyone had a similar problem.
To person who had similar problem:
He already posted his solution.

Because a forum is going to run out of room if someone posts threads... right.

Plus, he has a BETTER chance of someone solving his problem if its got its own topic.

Yes but the OP specifically asked if anyone else was encountering a similar problem.
(Did I just detect sarcasm in the last post? :mellow: )

Because that's pretty much universal forum etiquette.

Don't hijack other people's threads.

Also, don't necro a thread that's nearly a year old.
