So I'm posting this as more an investigative and maybe preventative measure, as I have a fresh B9S 5.0.1, Luma 9.1, and GM9 8.1 on my New 3DS XL

I took it out with me to play while I waited for my car, and had my first experience with black screen (from sleep mode). I rebooted it by holding down the power button, and it eventually came on after a few tries.

It spooked me good. Is there a way to identify what happened? Is this going to keep spontaneously happening until it can't be saved?

In case long use of sleep mode causes the n3DSXL to stay stuck with black screens, try resetting with the battery trick.

Also, prolong use of sleep mode might be a contributor to a specific type of black screens of death where there's sound in HOME Menu and the screens only work in Recovery Mode. The cause of failure was pinpoint to worn out camera, which might be due to cameras still working in sleep.

  • New 3DS XL Screens only display recovery mode
When it went out, it was completely out. No sound or picture. Can't say I remember how long it was in sleep mode for though -- I usually turn it off, but didn't that day.
I'll have to bookmark that battery trick, just in case it comes to that!

Is this a NAND problem? Or maybe something with the SD Card?
