Guys you don't have to send it in. It's not actually still charging. Nintendo is obviously ignorant to the problem. If it was charging the 3DS would be really hot.

Ive notice this as well. Out of the maybe 20 or so charges ive only seen the charging light go off maybe one or two times. None since our last update though.

Funny if they have an recall because too many systems have been reported to have the same problem?....I have noticed mine with a similar problem but turning it on while its on charge after a few hours seems to do good in reminding it.

I've had experience myself with the Nintendo reps being full of crap. They once told me the Wii's internal fan only comes on when it starts getting hot. I tested it myself and they were wrong. it starts blowing as soon as you hit the power button.
I was looking right at it as I hit power just to see. I knew more about how the Wii fan works than they did.
Don't listen when they try telling you to send your 3DS in for repairs. Unless you like sitting around waiting for month to get your system back.

I have encountered this problem since yesterday. Today I plugged it 5am, but is still charging at 11am or almost 12PM. What I did is I replugged the AC adapter just now (same as yesterday) and the Power LED (orange) just went off. Huh?! You guys tried this?

Yeah, the 3DS seems to have forgotten how to turn the charging light off when it's done. Re-plugging works for me, or rather, lifting it up and putting it back in the cradle. (provided it was actually done charging.)

Another minor bug that will hopefully be fixed in the next update.

I just got my 3DS today and it seems to be having this problem as well, is it going to harm anything if it's charging too long?

Oh wait, I forgot to ask.
You guys know when the next update is and what version?

If your 3DS isn't hot when you take it off the charger it's fine.
It's not actually recieving power anymore. If it was after so long on the charger it would be burning up.

I turn it on instead, because every time you plug in/set it on the cradle its suppose to be fully charged....Not fully charged before you plug it.

Mine was doing it both on the cradle, and just plugged in through the cable. I decided to pull the battery and see if that helped, and it seems to have worked. Yesterday I popped out the batter for a few seconds and then put it back together. Looking at it now sitting on the cradle the light has gone out. Maybe it's helped?

Worth a try.

I only updated yesterday, haven't seen any problems with the battery charging before or after update.

I seem to be charging differently to all of you - I'm doing the same as I did with my DS lites.
I play mainly at home, so I play with the charger lead plugged directly into the console, ie I'm playing off the mains power.
I'm playing every day, so 3DS is always fully charged (or almost so, on first play of the day, the orange light may go on, but is for a minute or less). I've never used the cradle.

If I take the 3DS out on sleep mode, I've never gone down to the red light, and I have played AR games while out.

Am I doing my battery in by playing this way?
What is the worst that can happen? I'm going to need a new battery in a year or two's time?
My DS lites' batteries are still going strong after 5 years use.
I'm so ingrained in playing this way, I doubt I'll be able to change unless I was really damaging the 3DS (as opposed to just the battery).
Edit: the 3ds does not get warm while I play, & I have played for 90mins at a time, tho that is max.

I got the same problem. It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one.
