    Hi ! I didn't play on my new 3ds since few days, i wanted to play, but when i try to start the console, the blue led flash one second and stop.
    It's the same when i want to charge my new 3ds, the led is orange for 1-2 sec and then nothing...

    I don't know what happened, my new 3ds is not so old, it was running in A9HL + Luma3DS and the last thing i did with it, it's to play mario kart 7 while streaming on my computer through NTR Video

    Thanks for reading, and i hope you will maybe help me :/

    Is the micro sd still inside the New 3ds? If it is, try removing and re-inserting the micro sd card.

    Are the right files on your micro sd card? And check if your micro sd is corrupt.

    Well, the charge light turns on for a second then off, would indicate it has a full battery.

    a9lh will react like that if there's not the right files on the microSD card/no microSD card. So we'll have to make sure it's not the files and not the microSD card before we can try and troubleshoot anything else. I would suggest getting another microsd card, and redownloading the necessary files, and plop them on the new microsd card. If you've already done that, we can try and troubleshoot what else it could be.

    Everything is alright, i didn't change anything

    But it do the orange thing even if there's no battery inside

    Hmmmm, but the screen not even be "on", i think, for a9hl it should be on (on a black screen but on), no?

    I will try other things so :/

    Thing i remembered ! When i playd on MK7 & NTR Video, in a moment i just pressed "A" and my 3DS shutted down while i was playing

    Everything may not be alright with the SD card, even if you didn't change anything. SD cards fail, and what you described is exactly what would happen if your SD card failed. Please check your SD card on a computer to see if it's still kicking.

    I had the exact same problem you described happen to me a few days ago - my SD failed. I put a new one into my 3ds with the required files and my issue was resolved.

    It could be a hardware problem :'( but hopefully not. Always try the easiest solutions first. After re-downloading the appropriate files and putting them on your different microsd card, could you take a screenshot of the root of your different microSD card so we can verify all the files are in the right place?

    This. ^---

    Dosseum, since you were actively reading/writing to your microsd card by recording video/audio, there's a chance it's this. It'd be the cheapest solution, so let's hope it's that.

    Wtf, i don't know what happened, i was recording a video to show you, so i show the different sd card i used, and without/with battery etc..
    I did the record again (because we saw my face on the first), and it boots, but with red led to say my battery is empty, and now my new 3ds can charge again.
    I'm charging it and i will wait

    Well, i don't know is my battery is dead, but when i unplug the charger, the 3DS flash orange led and shut down, but i can put on the 3DS and without the charger plug, it works well, but if i plug and unplug, hop shut down

    And now it's the same than before, i mean, it doesn't boot.

    Did someone know how to find KTR-003 battery in Europe? I only find for USA :/

    Try putting on the latest version of luma.That supposedly happens when you don't have the arm9loaderhax.bin and have luma set to autoboot.

    No battery for N3DS :/

    Thanks for the help.

    Now i think i find the problem, because now i can play & charge my 3DS normally. I think it's a problem with the "connector" between the battery & the motherboard, because when i put the battery in the N3DS, nothing work, it doesn't boot, the charge doesn't work, etc..., but if i put the battery like in this position / (in diagonal) and make it touch the three connectors, the 3DS boot and everything is alright.
    So the things i did is to put some paper below the battery to make it have the position like / and not straight like _ so for the moment it works, but it's not perfect :/

    And i don't know why there's this kind of problem, because the connector seem alright, and the battery seems alright too.

    I hope it will help for people who have the same problem

    I thought they are the same:
    https://www.amazon.fr/Batterie-rech...&sr=8-1&keywords=new+nintendo+3ds+xl+batterie

    About your problem, you can remove the back cover and see if the connectors aren't de-soldered.
    It happens frequently with the one from the charger to the console so, it might the same with the pins for the battery.
