    System: New 3ds xl
    Version: 11.5 sysnand
    CFW: Luma+Boot9strap

    I was using my 3ds the other day (07/22/2017) to play a few matches of smash run, then I decided to see if there was an update for luma, sure enough, there was. I download the latest stable update, the updater I'm using prompts me to turn off the system, my system turn off, and now I can't turn it on. When I press power, the light pulses on then off. Is there a fix for this? I also have a NAND backup, if that helps.

    EDIT 1: While I tried finding a way to turn it on, I started hearing popping sounds.

    I had the same problem yesterday, but I hadn't done an update. I tried turning on the 3DS this morning, but this time I ejected the SD card, and it booted up fine.
    I put the card back in and tried again and it turned on. No problems yet.

    That is something i forgot to mention. I tried turning it on with and without the sd card.

    The contacts on mine were busted. That´s why it had to be replaced.
