Topic: 3DS XL back panel. Heeeelp!

Posts 1 to 6 of 6


Hey Guys,
I've had my 3DS XL for a while now but even out of the box the back panel was coming loose where the volume control is. Are they all like this or should I consider getting a new one?

I find with mine it's easy to unclip the 2 rear bottom corners where the volume and wifi switches are. I have never unclipped them by accident though. On Youtube I have seen videos of units that are far looser than mine. If your unit's bottom panel keeps popping out by itself, I will consider sending it to Nintendo for a repair. Your 3DS XL should still be under warranty. Or switch in store if you are still within the return time frame.

Yah, mine is loose on the same side as yours... Just don't toy with it too much and it'll be fine.

Meowph, that's right!

I don't think this calls for a repair like @GTWarrior77 said. I'm pretty sure they sell that back panel for $5 + tax + shipping on their online store. Call Nintendo to either buy a new cover or to help you figure out how to fix it without sending it in.
