Sorry. That is a corrupted chip. You'll either need to take it to a shop or buy a new one.

My Pikachu 3DS XL stopped working, the blue power led will not turn on and the charging orange led turns on and off once, how can I fix this?

Sounds like a defective battery or charger. Battery may be dead and isn't charging because it's either bad or the charger isn't working. Have you tried another 3DS charger? Perhaps a friends?

I have a Nintendo 3DS. I was using it and I notice it would take a while to resume from stand by so I turn it off. I turned it on and the whole screen is black but it's on. The wifi switch works fine...

Send it back to Nintendo if your warrantee is still good. If not, go to and sign up. It gives you 3 months more on your warrantee.

3 ds will not turn on

1. Make sure the battery pack is charged: Connect the 3DS to your charge cable or place it on the cradle. Make sure that the battery is charging. (Indicated by the orange light on the front. Even if the battery is fully charged, this light will come on briefly and then turn off.)

2. Press and power button and make sure the blue power light turns on. If this light turns on but you do not get any picture or sound, you may want to consider sending your system in for repair.

3. Make sure any DS or 3DS game card inserted is properly inserted into the game card slot. The game card should be inserted with the label facing out and then pushed into the slot until it clicks into place.

4. Check that the battery has been inserted properly. Unscrew the back panel of the unit, remove the battery and reinsert it, making sure that the contacts on the battery match up with the contacts on the system. The battery should be inserted so that the "positive" (+) and "negative" (-) icons on the battery are facing up. CAUTION: There was a known glitch in the system at launch that prevented players from tagging other systems that they've already tagged if the battery is removed for a certain period of time.

If none of the above works, you may need to send the system in for repair. Check Nintendo's support site for repair information.

Nintindo error code 13207 keeps popping up.

the error code 13207 for nintendo 3DS is a problem connecting to the internet. If you are trying to connect your 3DS to the internet from a router try this.
  • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Nintendo 3DS. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
    • Make sure that the Nintendo 3DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction.
    • Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off.
