    Make sure it comes with the little black or white circle that goes on the black part with the nub. If you do t have that part and yours is damaged, your circle pad will not work.

    All 3DSes use the same Circle Pad btw. The main difference is how the cable is bent to fit into the socket. The XL wraps over itself, so good luck in advance.

    Nintendo WILL update your system. And they will probably not let you watch them repairing it

    They won't let you watch them. Also, most of the time. There repair shops aren't actually carried out by Nintendo themselves. They tend to use 3rd party companies for repairs. Well they do in the u.k at least.

    If you're going to buy a new one anyway, try with contact cleaner in the sliding electrical part...
