    When I turn on my DSi it comes up with the error message: "An error has occurred Press and hold the POWER Button to turn the system off Please refer to the nintendo DSi Operations Manual for details."

    I don't have a game in when this error comes up.

    Did you try a update or did you try to download the dsiware transfer program?

    I can't update as I can't get to the DSi menu. What is the dsiware transfer program?

    Your little brother probably turned off the DSi when he was updating.

    Anything I can do to fix it? Or do I just have to send it back to Nintendo

    Send it to Nintendo if you don't have the knowledge to fix it yourself. Not that anyone other than Nintendo can fix a bricked Nintendo handheld/console.
