    Have a friend who has a 3ds that is intermittently faulty. Everything powers up fine but the buttons and touchscreen stop working...but not all of the time.
    Will see if there is a pattern but I am happy to open up and reseat connectors, replace touch screen etc.
    Is there any know problem and quick fix, does a particular board or connector control the buttons and touchpad?
    Just want to fix it up enough to trade in for a 3ds XL so cheapest fix possible.
    Any ideas?

    Tell him to send it back to Nintendo. If you open it and make it worse (which im guessing you will since your asking a question like this) then your friend is royally fucked.
