3DS Not Giving Me Coins For Steps

My pedometer is working correctly but I am not getting any coins. This week I got 10 coins when I went to Disneyland and used them all the same day. Now I have 0 coins and am not getting anymore more. It has been 5 days since I got the 10 so I should have no problem getting them.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Call Nintendo. Nintendo's phone number is 1-800-255-3700.

Did this only happen once?

Did you try reloading or refreshing your page? What internet browser were you using?

Have you tried repairing your Nintendo 3DS yourself? I think your Nintendo 3DS is having problems because this has never happened to anyone I know on the internet before.

Re: 3DS Not Giving Me Coins For Steps

Nothing I see in this thread yet suggests that you should even consider opening up your 3DS. In general, you should never do that anyway. Sending it in is always safer, and it won't void your warranty.

 

Unfortunately I don't have a 3DS so I will not be of help, but I just wanted to make sure no one is going to open their 3DS up for no reason

You do know that you have to walk 100 steps to earn 1 coin, right?

Have you updated your system since you bought it?  Maybe there was a bug before the first update.  I don't see how this could possibly be a hardware issue.

Re: 3DS Not Giving Me Coins For Steps

Is your 3DS recording the steps you take, or is that not working either?

Have you tried messing with the date and time? If you have, that's probably why, if not, then the reader may not work, or it just hasn't been a new day yet.

Ok So I Think You Have To Carry It Vertically In Your Pocket Or Hand Otherwise It Won't Count.

 

I Hope This Helps,
