    i have a new 3ds xl and im looking to get it refurbished it got tons of scratches on the bottom and i just noticed recently the L button stopped working (i have to press it hard for it to work). Also my 3ds has costum firmware so i dont dare send it to nintendo, yikes.
    im looking for somewhere it can be repaired basically.

    Depends on how much the labor would cost to fix what is needed to be fixed, if it cost too much, just get a new unit or move on to the switch.

    As for L button you can try to open it yourself and see if you can clean it and reseat the cable, if that doesn't work, might need new button. The scratches on the bottom of the screen bother you much?

    You can get parts on ebay, it is not too hard to replace the L/R Button, just needs to take back cover off and another layer of plastic to access the L/R button

    Most local hobby shops repair stuff like that in my area at least... might be worth a shot :)

    Do what I did. I bought a used one that was in better condition at a local pawn shop and swapped the shell. :)
