    hi. so, my 3ds has a problem where if you turn it on. it turns back off right after. i've done some research and found out that i could be the speakers or the camera ribbon cables that may have a tear in it. opened mine up and found two ribbon cables which had a tear in it. i wanted to replace them, but don't know which ribbon cable is which. does anyone know which is which? thanks (:

    This guide is for the Top LCD replacement but it's very complete for what you want:

    The difficult part is to remove the ribbons from the bottom plate, so be very careful when doing this.
