    Hey ,

    recently while playing Pokémon Yellow on my 3DS , I somehow broke my sound slider (yes , "somehow" , I litteraly just pushed up the slider) , so now , I can still move the slider but It has no effect.

    So now It's stuck at the same volume (which is at max. I believe)

    So now , here is my question :

    Is it possible to change my sound volume without hardmod.

    Since I have A9LH , I'm definitly not sending it to repair.

    As a reminder :

    o3DSXL Running Luma3DS (latest hourly as I'm typing this) , FW 11.0 sys.


    Any help is appreciated , just don't be rude please.

    If you just pushed it up and it stopped working, maybe you just snapped off a piece of plastic. You could open it up and try and fix it yourself, rather than trying to find a way to adjust volume without the slider.

    I remember someone with a similar case, but with the 3D slider. The solution they gave to him was to send it to one of the hardmodders. Try asking there.

    It may be that the sound slider loose and needs repairing. If you are lucky, it's only loose and you can just put it back again in the slot for it.

    If not, you can order a replacement for it, not more than a few bucks.

    I want to avoid hardmodding as much as possible , sending or made myself.

    Well , maybe if I don't have any solutions MAYBE i'll send it.

    Open it, and take a look at the slider. Maybe the slider fell off the plastic slider, so they don't move together anymore. If you are lucky, you just have to get them in place.
    If not, then your actual slider might be broken

    Repair it. It's like the easiest thing in the world.


    Though, then just download a Nintendo DSi Sound .cia. It has a software volume slider.

    I don't think it has an effect outside the title itself, especially because it's a DSiWare.

    It did on the DSi. I'm curious though because somehow out of all my installed DSiWare, Sound is the one that got deleted a while ago.

    I could have Photo Clock (DSiWare) set my 3DS volume to max with the slider down which lasted until a full reboot.

    I'd consider yourself lucky. You now have a valid excuse to blast the volume in public! Who wouldn't like that?
