    Any older consol I buy I always buy broken. Its cheaper and I get good at fixing them. I got a 3ds xl in rough shape. I charges and seems good besides scratches on body and the popping and not turning on. If you don't know what the popping is I don't think you can help me. I tried the easy stuff like making sure all ribbons and clips and stuff we're all secure but nothing worked. If I replace the screen will that 100% fix? Or at least 95% fix?

    Popping is usually due to loose or bad ribbon. No guarantee a new screen will fix the issue.
