General Off-Topic Discussion / My other broken 3ds xl
« Last post by Kes_The_Dogo on September 26, 2021, 12:44:46 PM »
Hi, you might or might not have seen my other thread about my other broken 3ds xl, Either way it's different to the one I'm talking about in this thread. I was wondering what the issue is with my 3ds xl, none of the buttons except for maybe the power and the volume button work and the touchscreen doesn't respond when I touch it. It also randomly by itself tries to open an application up and gets stuck on the parental controls and trying to get past it as if it's the a button being pressed when it isn't. The a button isn't jammed either. Basically I want to know what might be the problem with it and how to fix it.

thank you anyone who tries to help, Dan :)
General Off-Topic Discussion / Broken Nintendo 3ds xl

Hi I need some advice on how to fix my nintendo 3ds xl's touchscreen. I was wondering what part of the touchscreen I would need to replace as the bit you would touch is fine, it works if I touch it but it looks like there're internal cracks in it which has made a lot of pixels go black or some other colour so it makes it hard to see what I'm doing on it. All I want to know is what part I need to fix it. Many thanks for any help,

Dan :)

Sure, if not about the Nintendo game consoles (NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Switch), post it in General Off-Topic Discussion category.

I was wondering if it's alright if I post a couple topics that are ask how I can repair my nintendo 3ds xl, new nintendo 3ds xl and my nintendo ds which all have some issues that I need some advice on fixing. But there isn't really any section for me to ask about them so can I?

Thanks for the info. Fortunately the seller trade it for a working one, but I told him what the problem might be in case he ever wants to repair it, although I seriously doubt he will.

The controller circuit board most likely has a microcrack in it. A scouring pad is not the solution and will only make matters worse. Check the board with a magnifier for any stress cracks. If all else fails, purchase a controller circuit board.

Hey nice people!

I've been the proud owner of a used SNES console for about a year, one of those with the yellowed bottom, which gives it a little more personality than the "others" ;)

It only came with one original controller, so this week I found an original second one for a very low price. The problem is, the shoulder buttons don't work, nor the X and A buttons. The seller is going to switch it for another one, but I did get a change to test out a few things with no success: tested the continuity of the 5 wires between the cable's port holes and the board solder points and they all seem ok, cleaned the board and rubber pads twice with alcohol, washed the pads with soap and a tooth brush (and the entire controller while I was at it), scrubbed the board contacts with a VERY VERY worn out scouring pad, and tested the controller in both controller ports. I'm not sure if the SELECT button is working, I only tested it with Street Fighter 2, where I only had weak punch/kick (Y/B), pause (START) and movement (directional pad). Everything works ok with my own controller on both ports.

Is this a know symptom and could there be a simple solution for it?

Most every issue like this is usually (but not always) caused by bad capacitors. I would suggest you check and/or change the capacitors if you have the knowledge to do so..
