My 3DS turns off when I press Start

Everytime I don't press start exactly in the middle it shuts off! It's very frustrating! Does anyone have any ways to fix it? Tips?

There is probably something wrong with the wiring. The only option you have is to set up a repair with Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.

 

Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, TYLER645 is right. If your 3DS shuts off a split second after you turn it on, and the battery is not extremely low on power, then your 3DS will definitely need to be repaired.

 

Call Nintendo (at 1-800-255-3700, open 6am to 7pm, 7 days a week), or contact them via their webform, and they will be able to set up a repair for you.

As TYLER645 and NINTEN94 said, The only was to repair it is to send it in. There really is no DIY solution for it and even if there was, I would'nt try it while the console is under warranty. Send it in and you will thank yourself later (~2 weeks) when you get a hopefully 100% working 3ds back.

Keep your 3DS accessories with you!.pngA repair may be necessary. If you plan on doing so, I recommend removing any game cartridge, stylus, and SD card you may have inserted in the 3DS to avoid accidentaly losing them.
