What's wrong with my charger?

My 3DS charger has been working for me for the past 5 or so weeks. But all of a sudden, it doesn't charge. The light doesn't turn on when I have it plugged in or on the docking station. and leaving it on either for an extended period does not affect the charge either.

The cord is not frayed (from what I can see on the outside, I don't want to pull off the covering; i think that v oids the warrenty), The same applys with anthing being bent. I have tried multiple on outlets, and tried charging with the 3DS's power on. And unfortunately, i don't have access to another charger. I was hoping that i wouldn't need to bring it in, but i guess i must.

Is the cord fraid at all? Anything bent? The power on (lol)? Have you tried a different charger? Like an old DSi one or a friends one. That way you can see if its the charger or your 3DS.
You will probably have to ring nintendo for this type of problem.

I would suggest buying a really cheap new charger and if that doesnt work it may be like mine where the connecter on the 3ds broke, i just stuck it in the charging cradle and it works fine.
