    It turned out that the guy had a bad cartridge.

    I heard that somewhere... I can't remember where. [​IMG]

    I saw a post about this on nintendo3dsblog.com
    In the comments there a few people said they had experienced it too.

    I had both screens go black twice, once when I returned to the menu, once when starting lego starwars.
    The first time I switched the 3ds off an on again (long power button hold, just like dsi) the second time, I just exited to the menu and restarted the game.
    No error message though, it seemed to me more like the lights had switched off.

    I had my 3DS go suddenly black when returning to the menu - it didn't restore, and I held the power button off for a long time (20 seconds?) before it shut down.

    Something else also happened: all the icons started rotating crazily fast. You know, the "System settings", "Mii maker" etc icons on the top screen. This wasn't fixed by rebooting the system, but fixed itself in an hour or two in sleep mode.

    That sounds like a mic problem. When you blow into the mic it makes the icons spin, sounds like something crashed and you got a constant signal from the mic.

    Oh, that could be it. Thanks for telling me. It was probably some loud noise at where I was at that time, therefore not a problem really.

    Apparently, the new update that Nintendo has right now (with the new video) fixes most of these problems.

    I saw exactly the same error code when it was loading music off the SD card, I just turned it off and on again and then it was fine, nothing since. This was also before I'd done the update.

    out of nowhere....
    I have had it "hang" a number of times coming out of cartridge games. I have also had the logos on the top screen spin like crazy, usually after taking it out of sleep mode if I have had streetpass or spotpass connections made.

    I've had black screens of death with message: "An error has occured" in Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars 3 times now. Two times on mission 4 when I was simply scrolling over the world map. Then a third time on mission 5 When continuing after having rescued the police.
    Very very annoying, hopefully this is something patchable and not hardware problem. However, I did buy a warranty for 1 year, so I can trade in my 3DS if it's actually a hardware problem.

    I'll give them some time to come up with an answer why this happens.
