    Do you have a working Luma boot.firm file on the root of your SD card?

    Make sure there isn't any dust in the connectors. This can cause issues.

    Try these:
    1) Booting up without an SD card
    2) Accessing the Luma3DS chainloader by holding START when you boot (do you have any payloads in SD:/luma/payloads? If not put the GodMode9 .firm in there).

    The blue light only turns on very briefly. The screen also doesn’t turn on. I don’t think it can boot anything.
    Maybe I just have to take out the battery for a couple of seconds.

    Read my post earlier. :| If that doesn't help, try booting without the SD Card.

    I already did check for dust. But even without sd it doesn’t boot

    But I think it didn’t shut down properly.

    Fixed it
    It never showed an orange low power light, so I thought It still had some battery left.
    But I haven't used my 3ds in so long, it was almost completely drained :)

    Thanks for the help guys
