    I have a modded O3DS that keeps turning itself off after being off for a random amount of time. Battery's fine. Maybe it's the memory card (It's an off brand)? I played both a custom GBA VC game, and a brand new legit game, and it keeps cutting off. What gives?

    Try updating arm9loaderhax.bin to latest version, maybe run lumaupdater other than that it kinda sound like a hardware issue... don't you have another SD card you can try?

    It may be more of a hardware defect

    You can give reseating all the cables and connectors a try. But if it's a break in a flex cable your will need new parts.

    OK, now everytime I try to turn the 3DS on, it turns off before the home menu boots up.... with or without a memory card.

    EDIT: Can't even run Hourglass9, or that other program.

    EDIT 2: It ran again, but for less than a minute.

    Sounds like a battery or other hardware issue. Have you tried turning on while plugged in? Make sure you have all required files for a9lh on your SD card and on latest version.

    Might be the battery. My 2DS sometimes did this because the battery would sometimes move a little and it wouldn't make contact anymore.
