    Good afternoon. Sorry for bothering but i have a problem with an old 3DS XL. Only black screen appears, with or without the SD card. And no, we don't have the backup of the sysnand(he bought it with the emunand preinstalled)

    This is the 3ds of a friend, they installed emunand with 9.2fw(this was 7 months ago), 2 moths ago he updated the emunand to 11. Everything fine to the moment, played his backups and tested homebrew. But last week it randomly froze and had to shutdown/turn on to play. Last time he was playing Senran Kagura and then froze, he shutdown and turned on the console and just black screen. Tried taking out the memory card and the same situation.
    Tested the SD and there's no problem, battery is good, theres no damage on the console.

    We don't have backup of sysnand.
    Buying a used motherboard is too expensive (same price as an old 3ds or old 3ds xl)

    Sorry for the long post and the bad english, is not my first language.

    When you take out the SD card and try to turn it on, does the power button flash or hang?

    Whelp, if you don't have a9lh, it's a brick. Figure out if you have a9lh, and then we'll go from there.

    Post a pic of the 3ds' SD card contents, that will be a telltale sign to see if it has A9LH

    Looks like this had mnuhax+rxtools

    Just try to remove the sdcard and don't put it back, if it persists, it could probably a brick.

    Do you hear sounds of the home menu?

    Did you try loading the recovery?
