Hello,
I'm considering buying a Japanese N3DS (non-XL), which I can switch the Region, if I can't set it to English...
Apparently, the N3DS intermittently freezes and locks up after using it for a while.
I'm probably thinking it's a motherboard issue, but I'm not sure.

Should I replace the motherboard? Is the motherboard the culprit? Otherwise, what is the issue? Does anyone here repair N3DSes?

Thanks,
TechAndrew

Where would you get a non-XL n3ds motherboard? I've been looking for one, but no luck.
