Hi.
I have a modded (bootstrap+luma) O3DS which I'm probably going to sell. It's white and approximately one year old and fully functional except for one flaw. Tilt the console more than 90° and it'll turn off. In other words, it has a broken ribbon cable. You can buy a new one for like 3$. What's a realistic selling price? And no, I won't fix it as long as I'm the owner. Which is a shame...

Thanks in advance and sorry if this is the wrong forum.

The ribbon cable probably isn't broken, it's (most likely) just come unseated. Therefore, there really isn't a whole lot wrong with it.

Why do you want to sell it? Since you dont want to fix it since you're the owner of that O3DS? Do you have a another 3DS that you can still use?

Yep I have a N3DS XL that I use. Should perhaps just repair it myself. But the XL was bought as a replacement so I have no use for the O3DS really.

I'm pretty sure it's broken. I've "re-inserted" the cable into the clip multiple times and it still doesn't work properly.
