    an old 3ds (not xl) with a9lh installed on the latest firmware with a weird charging issue in which u have to maneuver the cable a certain way for it to charge the system. the cable charges my new 3ds just fine, so I think it's the system. unfortunately, I no longer have my tools to figure out the problem. :( how's $50? is that too cheap or too much?

    First of all, I'm pretty sure GBAtemp has a selling forum to ask for things like this at https://gbatemp.net/forums/want-to-sell-wts.159/
    Secondly, that may even be a little low. Just the motherboard of a 3ds still goes on eBay for like $30 I think? I think I only saw a couple 3ds in an ebay search sell for less than $80, but just do a little research.
    If the only issue is that the charging port may be damaged, charging ports are cheap to fix for anyone who really wants to.

    I'd maybe throw 30$ at that, but knowing the cost to repair it is real turn off. I can buy a used one from my local store for like 70$.

    thanks, guys. I need some quick cash, so I'll probably sell it soon on ebay or something.

    Just be careful if you're advertising it as A9LH on eBay. Nintendo likes to go on the site every now and then and DMCA listings that advertise A9LH, CFW, Luma3DS, wireless streaming/stream cap, etc. I listed one, got DMCA'd. I waited until a busy time (X-Mas) and then it sold just fine. Just a fair warning.

    I saw a couple yesterday when I was looking through sold listings that advertised CFW or A9LH I think.

    First, what store is that, because I can't find one near that cheap around here, yet alone one I know will work with A9LH.
    Second, it seems to me like it really depends on what the problem is and whether you're willing to pop the 3ds open and fix it yourself. Getting other people to fix things for you is always the expensive part. Sounds to me like the problem is just the charging port, which you can buy a replacement on ebay for around $3-5.
