    so this morning, I was playing smash bros 3ds and for whatever reason, the 3ds just shut down by itself, no warning or anything, then when I tried to turn it back on, the 3ds just won't power on. The blue led is not present at all and I am still trying to power it on but nothing happens. any idea on what I can do to fix this problem? yes I do realize that I am posting this literally on April 1st but I really need all the help I can get... thank you.

    i tested the battery right now, seems fine to me but i removed it and still nothing. i am not sure what else might be the problem. i'll go ahead and provide images for you all to understand what is going on.

    Maybe the battery died. Did u try to use the power cable and look if the orange led shows up? Try power the console with the cable on

    I think you bought a faulty one.

    No the battery is not the issue in this case and I just tried it, the orange light does pop up but it won't power on.

    it won't turn on at all, weird thing is that i didn't use any homebrew or cfw apps during this, i was just playing smash bros just as is and then it turned off.

    Hey wanted to ask if you was interested since I found a common thing in the N3DS XL SD nand readers, they all have MMC 4.1/2 support and the smallest chip is the GL827 SSOP28 which can be used to do hardmods without the reader outside.
