    So yesterday I decided to play my 3DS after a few weeks of not having any interaction with it. I go through spells of playing and not playing. I do keep it up today and have not put any homebrew or anything else not official on the system. I haven't had the need to yet. Anyways I turned the system and nothing black screen. So I did the hardboot holding down the power button until the system shut it self down. I ejected the game that I had in the slot which was Pokemon Pearl DS North American version. This seemed to fix the problem and the system loaded fine to the home menu. I had to scroll through my menu to get to the icon I wanted to open well, it froze again with the icon being selected not matching the picture in the top screen, this was not Pokemon as I had not put the game back in. Once again I held the power button down. This again fixed the problem. I then decided to try and play my game. I managed to get it too work and play some of the game. I got to a trainer battle and just made the trainers first pokemon faint and the do you wish to switch pokemon message appeared. I had to close the lid at this point to help my daughter. When I opened it again maybe 10 mins later it was again frozen. At this point I gave up trying to play anything. Has anyone else had this issue? I am on Ver 11.4.0-37U with a fully charged battery.

    So, you have somehow corrupted your system (even tho you have done nothing with it) or some cables might have loosened in your device. Anyway, if your device is still in warranty, just tell it to Nintendo and they will offer help

    Yeah it's probably out of warranty it's not a new Nintendo 3ds and I got it 2 years ago.
