Is the eshop down??

#1KakkorotcKyPosted 4/1/2013 10:21:42 AM
So I bought a $35 eshop card and put it in my 3DS just fine. I went to buy Luigi's Mansion and add the last funds, but I kept getting an error 005-5698 which tells me to try again and shut off my system. I tried adding funds and nothing would work. I even tried changing my region and that didn't work. I can download updates for my ambassador games just fine though.

So my question is this: is the eshop down for maintenance? This says it is. Does anyone else have this issue?

Just got another error code: 005-5688

If it were a April fool's joke, I'd be really really angry

Reset to factory settings and reformat the Sd card.

Go into your data settings and delete "Eshop Extra Data"

I'm getting the same 2 errors right now.

This morning when I got off work (~10 hours ago) when I tried to add funds, it constantly told me I had an invalid expiration date across every debit card I tried, as well.

So yes, I believe the eShop is down.

I'm getting that message now too!!! Absolutely infuriating. Also, to the other commenters, I really don't want to format my SD card. I have all my ambassador stuff on their and what is the extra eshop data?
