@Henry1887 In this case, I would give Nintendo support's phone line a call. For you, it's Nintendo support EU, or Germany, I think. I'm in the US. Calling Nintendo support/customer service here, it's surprisingly easy to get a nice person on the line. It's always been a positive experience because, Nintendo's support is refreshingly excellent.

Nintendo's support pages are a great resource, too, if you want to search them. But my gut says, it might be tough trying to figure out which search terms will get you to the info you need.

I though booting a 3DS without data on the SD card just generate a default 3DS profile, not prevent the console from booting.
The only reason I can think of is if it's a modded console, then the bets are off as to what it'll do in that situation.

I guess since you already wiped everything on the card, maybe it wouldn't hurt to reformat it on a PC if you can.

Hello! Did you find a way to solve this problem? This also happened to me yesterday and I didn’t find anything

Try popping the SD card out and booting up the system.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

@VoidofLight Nothing happens, the blue light turns on and then turns off after a few seconds

@GiornoBJ Using search words that describe the console screen or console status light in Nintendo support can often help explain things. If you've already done this, you can disregard.
