    I think i broke my 3DS XL...
    I turned it on and wanted to play some games so i was going to the icon of the game but the 3DS screen freeze and i could hear the sound.
    I thought it was harmless so i pressed the Turn off button and that it turns off but after that i tried to turn it on but i got a black screen.
    The 3DS light goes on and its blue but the screen is just black.
    Someone please help!

    I fixed the problem with the dudes from chatbox ^^
    Ill just type what i did so if someone has a problem like that then do this:

    1.Take the game card out of the 3DS
    2.Turn the 3DS OFF and then again ON but hold the Power button for around 10 seconds while booting the system.
