Topic: 3DS is turning off without warning.

Posts 1 to 4 of 4



So, this issue with my 3DS only just started yesterday.

I was playing Animal Crossing, and about 10 minutes later, my 3DS just shuts down completely without warning. When I turn it back on, it turns back on normally and everything seems fine. So, I tried playing Animal Crossing again, and the same thing happened. The second time round, it felt like a shorter amount of time, before the system just shut off completely.

I have noticed that this is only happening when I am playing a game. When I'm just on the home screen or the camera, settings, etc it doesn't do this.

Just coming on here to see if anyone has any suggestions on what to do? Could this be fixed from home, or should I just take it in to get it fixed?

Thanks for the help.



Does the light go red first? Seems similar to my problem, except the light goes red for a minute before flashing and dies within seconds. (which wasn't normal, since you usually have plenty of time to save or something) Anyways check the battery...mine was apparently going bad.

@Joeynator3000 No, I don't get a red light. Mine just shuts off altogether with no lights or warning.



That's strange, maybe the battery is bad for whatever reason. I don't think it's that difficult to buy a new one though if it is. I'd suggest calling Nintendo to see if they could offer advice or a possible free repair. If that doesn't work, I'd replace the battery myself
