umm...black screen of death?

#1DeltaProjPosted 7/6/2011 7:20:29 PM
I've used my 3DS every day since launch, and this is the first time this has happened. I opened it from sleep mode, and the screen is just blank. No 3D light or anything. the system is still on, however. um...help please...

Try closing again and reopening. If unsuccessful, hold down the power button until it turns off.

It's happened to me when I closed out of a DS game. It just sometimes takes awhile to load.
