Tried to get on the eshop but there was a system update

#1ApplepiemanPosted 3/25/2013 9:26:01 PM
Upon downloading it, I plugged it up, set it aside and then for reason at all "Error, please turn of the 3DS and try again"

Now the system REFUSES to go onto the Nintendo Eshop... what the hell?

Online functionality of the system works, tried playing Multiplayer on Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, that works, I still receive Swap Note messages, as well as Nintendo Videos on the little video app they have.

Yet it refuses to go on the eshop, unless the eshop is currently down?

I keep getting this message

"An error has occured.
Please save your data in any software currently in use then restart the system."

Upon powering down and powering back up, it does nothing.

What do?

This update interrupted my FE:A skirmish so I figured it was important. I did the update and it was pretty quick. I tried the eShop to see if I get any error like you are and it works fine on my launch 3DS. Try rebooting your 3DS again.

Is there another way to reboot the system?

I powered down and powered it back on, each time getting the same exact message...

Don't tell me I'm one of the lucky few that got a system locked out of Nintendo eshop because of an update error out of my control?

SO I tried System SEttings and guess what?

"An error has occured.

This is just great.

Let me guess, Nintendo is going to ask me to ship in my system (my system is 28 days old today) which is still under warranty but I do have a few download games to it (Pushmo, Electroplankton Beatness, and Super Mario 3D Land thanks to the free game promotion) and I better not have to resort to this... this is just ridiculous.

Temporary. i had the same problem doing this on mine and my niece's 3DS's. this was around 3+ hours ago though. progress bar for the system update only reached about 10%-15% multiple times on both 3DS's, failed multiple times on both and both 3DS's had to automatically reset multiple times.

After awhile both finally updated just fine. took i think less than 5 minutes for each after all of that. not on the eShop but i'm still "downloading later" SM3DL.. currently at 88% finished.. and i started the download almost 3 hours ago :/. dunno..
