I'm having an odd issue with my original 3DS. This happened a few years ago now, but i've been wanting to give it away to someone. ( I've since replaced it. ) The 3DS is in alright condition, though the charger doesn't work unless you use a charging station. This happened one day while I was just casually playing a DS game. The A button stopped working all of a sudden. Now, it's very strange, because every hour or so, if I turn the system back on, the A button works for one press, and if I wait for say, a few months, it works for longer periods of time before stopping again. It's even more strange, because the "Home" button works perfectly for the majority of the time, but if I press the power button and go to the "In sleep mode, the system can..." screen, it doesn't work at all, just like the A button. I've tried formatting it, to no avail, and right now I'm stumped besides possibly opening it up. ( I would appreciate any help, and I just joined here. ) EDIT: I just tried it again, and it seems to press the A Button if I close the system while on the Home Menu for some odd reason.
