    Best way to learn such things is get on and disassemble it to the last screw and peace... Then build everything Back together. When it's still running do that again till you done it a hundred times.. Then you are a pro in repairing 3ds.

    yeah obviously I need to disassemble one 3ds but for obvious reasons, im not gonna disassemble my own 3ds if I know nothing about the anatomy :l

    Im gonna try to buy one really cheaper, disassemble and rebuild for knowing if I can disassemble without breaking it I think :z

    You could always buy a broken one for cheap. Cracked screen or fried motherboard. That's what I would do. Then using that you'll have a guide when messing with a working 3DS.

    Just a heads up eBay can be a bit of a mine feild in terms of buying stuff to fix, a lot of the time "faulty" items are things that someone already tried to fix and it's dead dead or they damaged it worse in the process, or the more "guaranteed" stuff (like just a cracked screen but working) end up selling for practically the full cost - cost of replacement parts meaning you don't make any profit for the actual fixing (unless you already have a stockpile of spares you have salvaged from other dead consoles

    But yeah if you buy directly from someone or get lucky on ebay, the most common faults on the o3ds/o3ds XL are just loose ribbon cables which can be fixed by just disassembling and reassembling and making sure everything is inserted properly
