    Hi guyz,

    Just wondering has anyone tried this below, it only works if you have DS lite and 3DS

    1. Close your 3DS and leave it on sleep mode
    2. Then put your 3DS on your DS lite (either on or off)

    After that you can see your 3DS blue light is no longer flashing and become solid blue.
    When you flip open your 3DS you will find out it is already on.

    So weird, is it just my 3DS?...

    Pat

    It's a magnetic thing, apparently.

    Happened to mine, just tested that now. Weird. Magnets probably. No magnet jokes, please.

    Yeah, it's kind of like how if you do that with two DS Lites (Or DSis), the top one's screens turn off.

    Once again, because of the magnets. Pretty cool though, I'm going to try it out.

    This was noticed a few months back. There are a few threads around here about that.

    I have see & hear it too.
    This is why it's happening:
    The magnetic field of the ds lite disturbs the one of the 3ds.

    So don't do it much or he 'll break.

    Kind Regards,

    no. To weak magnet. It's like a magnet you have on your refrigator to hold small paper notes, probably even weaker than that.

    Lmao, they're magnets. If you put the DSi and 3DS after, move it a little and the screens will turn on [​IMG] and start to do sounds XDDDD

    Same thing happens with the DSi. They use a magnet to detect if it's closed or not and it sets off a failsafe that stops the DSi and 3DS from being fried around magnets.
