The motherboard should only be replaced as a last resort. Be careful removing it!

    • Ensure your device is powered off before proceeding. Failure to do so may result in electrical shock or damage to the device.

    • Using a JIS #0 screwdriver, loosen the two black screws on the back.

    • The screws are held in place by captive washers and should not be completely removed.

    • Once the screws are loosened, pry open the back cover.

  4. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 4, 1 resimden 1.
    • The battery is located on the left hand side of the 3DS - to remove, use the small gap located at the top-middle and pull up with a pointed tool.

    • Using tweezers, carefully pop out the rubber bumpers located at the top side of the 3DS. Removing them will reveal another two 6mm screws. Remove these screws using a JIS #000 as well.

    • To separate the cover, carefully lift it up and away from the hinges (in order to clear the headphone port), then pivot it towards the hinges to expose the circuit boards.

    • Don't fully remove the cover yet, or you may damage the delicate ribbon cable that still connects it to the motherboard.

  8. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 8, 1 resimden 1.
    • Use a pair of tweezers to lift away the two plugs that latch the L/R/ZL/ZR button ribbons to the motherboard. You can now remove the back cover completely and set it aside.

  9. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 9, 1 resimden 1.
    • Use tweezers to flip up the small, hinged locking flap in order to unlock the ZIF connector securing the circle pad ribbon.

    • Slide the ribbon out of the ZIF connector.

  10. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 10, 1 resimden 1.
    • Using a JIS #000 screwdriver, remove the two 8 mm screws securing the circle pad.

  11. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 11, 1 resimden 1.
    • Lift the circle pad casing upward to remove it. There will be some friction, but it should not require excessive force.

  12. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 12, 1 resimden 1.
    • Locate the gold terminal plug with a red cable at the top left of the motherboard. Using your fingers, carefully pull the plug straight upward to remove.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to disconnect the single ribbon connector.

    • Don't do what we did -- be very careful not to pull on the red cable.

  13. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 13, 3 resimden 1. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 13, 3 resimden 2. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 13, 3 resimden 3.
    • Using tweezers, gently pull the five marked ribbons out of the ZIF connectors along the sides of the motherboard.

    • These ZIF connectors are held in place by friction and do not have locks—lifting the flaps on these connectors will break them! Note that in some models the upper-most connector may have a lock.

    • Three of the ribbon connectors have plastic clamping flaps that cover the ribbon to prevent slippage. Use the tweezers to flip them up before ribbon removal.

    • When reassembling the device, be sure to flip the ZIF clamps back down.

    • While the SD card reader is shown as removed in this photo, it is optional for the removal of the motherboard.

  14. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 14, 1 resimden 1.
    • Using a JIS #000 screwdriver, remove six 4mm screws along the edges of the motherboard.

  15. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 15, 2 resimden 1. Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 Motherboard Replacement: adım 15, 2 resimden 2.
    • Carefully pivot the motherboard 90 degrees toward the hinges to reveal two more ZIF connectors on the underside of the motherboard.

    • Both have latches that must be flipped up. The left, longer latch is black; the right, shorter one is white. Flip up the flaps, slide the ribbons out and remove the motherboard.

    • Note which way the ribbons slide into their connectors carefully, as they are different.

Could someone point out where the fuses in the motherboard are hidden?

emaN - Yanıt

With some digging, I managed to find this on the GBAtemp forums , which host a community of 3DS modders:

Seems like no one's quite sure, but it could be a start. Unfortunately, the N3DS components are largely small black boxes with no labeling.

If you have a multimeter, it might help to test some of these mystery boxes.

Question: Seeing as how you pulled the red cable in the photos, how was that fixed? Asking for a friend.

Mijii - Yanıt

We...never fixed that actually, as we didn't have the tools for it and the device had been loaned to us specifically for tearing down.

I don't know if iFixit themselves ever did anything with it, but I would imagine soldering the frayed end of the cable back onto the plug would work. (Here's a guide on that: http://www.instructables.com/id/Solderin... )
