    I have a new 3ds xl that I bought around New Years, it worked fine and everything until I accidently bricked it while updating and turning off the device on accident. It was on 11.2. I ended up ordering a new motherboard off of eBay and it was on 10.3 same region. So as I replaced it, it turned on just fine but the only problem I have right now that is really ticking me off is that it has a sort of sleep mode issue in which if i close the system it still says on, no matter what I do. It random flickers black and shows the notification light for being in sleep mode and stays stuck sometimes or goes back to normal when I don't touch it. What could be my problem and how can I fix it? (I've used gbatemp for tutorials for years but this is my first post after so long)

    I dont think that this is software issue, looks more as a hardware one. I never heard or saw something like that.
    Closing the too doesn't put it to sleep?

    No, it just stays on like as if sleep mode wasn't a thing. It just chooses to go to sleep by itself

    Either the new motherboard, or the sleep switch, in the hinge

    I should investigate the sleep switch in the hinge, any details or images as to where it is? I was sort of having to close repeatedly. Should I do a hardmod and back up my nand? I have done 3 successful ones before so this new one isn't anything different.

    I dont see the need of the nand backup, but why not, you always need a backup. There is a good video on youtube about 3dsXL disassembly, and there is one on IfixIt. I wish you luck mate

    I couldn't find any videos or such on ifixit as to where the sleep switch is. I always thought it was a magnet. If its not trouble, can you help me? And I'm not tempted to take it apart to find it on my own cause I dont do things without knowing what I'm going into

    OK, after doing more research I found out that the power board didnt have the magnet it needs to read that it is in sleep mode. That black socket looked ripped out, so I desoldered it off of a broken board I had and attached it to the one that was on the xl. I'll update later tomorrow if it was a success or not

    So it was a success, the board booted up and worked flawlessly after I added it in. It was just that tiny module the cause of the sleep mode issue.

    Though it was mostly my mistake, you did help me open my eyes to where to look.
