Assuming the 3DS cannot be repaired, there's good news and not-as-good news (and maybe a little bad news) I'll start with ---
The good news:
Game Cartridges: all your save data is stored on the cartridge, with a new 3DS system you can pick back up wherever you left off in your savegames. The only thing lost may be streetpass data, and certain things like ...
Based on a few other links I've found, it appears to be the 3DS and not the account that gets banned.
Take this link for example. It contains the following screenshot:
According to that screenshot, which is from a 3DS, it states that "This device's access to online services has been restricted by Nintendo." The link also states that buying a new 3DS is ...
I decided to test it. My usual profile settings are USA with no state set. Here are my results after changing my location (called 'Region' in the profile settings, which is confusing) to Argentina - Buenos Aires.
I could not enter the ...
Error code 001-0502 is a network problem, as stated in the Nintendo website. To solve it, change your 3DS DNS to 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 or try using a VPN. Also, it appears that you may need China Unicom broadband as a prerequisite (i.e. if you're using the Great Wall Broadband, you're pretty much on your own).
Adding on, apparently the majority of people ...
Unfortunately, you can't.
As Nintendo's help page about the Nintendo Network ID states:
You can only register a single Nintendo Network ID to each Nintendo
3DS system. It is not possible to register multiple Nintendo Network
IDs on a single system.
A Nintendo Network ID registered on a Nintendo
3DS system cannot be registered to another Nintendo 3DS system. ...
You can re-download them via the Nintendo Switch eShop.
Check “Redownloads” in the Nintendo Switch eShop (in your account
information). Any games that have been purchased or redeemed on the
system will appear here, and can be re-downloaded at no additional
Follow these steps.
On that page, Click Downloading a game, then I don't see the game ...
According to Nintendo Support pages, this isn't possible. Each Nintendo Network ID must be linked to at most one 3DS and one Wii U at the same time.
Your case is somewhat different, since you will only play one Wii U at a time, but you won't be able to login on your second Wii U, and you will be unable to download Splatoon on your second Wii U.
Disassemble the device and brush the PCB with a soft toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol (90%+), wash the PCB with alcohol again and let it dry for about 12-24 hours (alcohol damps fast).
It might fix your issues. We have a ~66% success rate with this method in our repair shop.
According to this Nintendo Support article, you cannot directly use the account you set up with your 3DS. A 3DS system uses an account that is tied to a Nintendo Network ID, which functions differently than accounts tied to a Switch.
Nintendo Accounts and Nintendo Network IDs are used for different purposes.
A Nintendo Account is used for ...
I don't think so.
According to Nintendo FAQs:
Your Nintendo Network ID is tied to your software and/or additional content you have purchased and downloaded.
If you format the console setting your own NNID you won't be able to download those games because they are tied to the previous NNID.
No, you will lose the games or be forced to transfer them to another system.
Games are tied to both the system and the NNID. The 3DS only supports one NNID to be linked to it at a time, unlike the Wii U which allows 12. The only way to unlink a NNID from a 3DS outside of a system transfer is to format the system. If you link a new NNID after that, then you ...
There is no problem about it. You can use your Pokemon game in another 3DS and type your codes to obtain your Pokemons.
The game is not linked to any 3DS console or Nintendo ID. It can be linked to a Pokemon Global Link account, but it does not matter, as you don't need it to use a code (and as it is linked to your game, and not a 3DS console).
I went through a similar experience a few months ago, and have two things to say, both to the asker and to anyone else seeing this question:
First off, even if it's been a week and your 3DS won't turn on, don't lose hope. I dropped my 3DS in a sink full of water while it was turned on, and although I immediately turned it off, removed the battery/game card/...
Transferring data from Wii to Wii U should be safe, since the Wii U's Wii mode is completely separate from the rest of the Wii U. However, the transfer is one way only, and all the Wii's data will be removed upon transfer. It is recommended you do not interrupt the transfer at any time, or you might end up losing your Wii's data completely.
Games you bought ...
This was a while ago, so you might've already done stuff? but those pokemon are probably going to be deleted.
Strictly speaking, the NNI isn't the kind of thing you putz around with. It's a dangerous thing to delete out of nowhere.
Why? Because the NNI is connected to the currency in your account. It is what allows you to buy things. And the money doesn't ...
First off, in regards to your end question: No. The HD format for external devices on the Wii U is closed and proprietary, and each drive has the hardware ID for it's home system as part of the encryption so it will not work on a second Wii U without reformatting as of the last time I checked. This would require a hack which is beyond the scope of this ...
According to Nintendo Support:
A Nintendo Network ID is required to download game demos and other
Once deleted, Nintendo eShop purchases can be redownloaded at no cost.
Downloaded items appear as a gift on the HOME Menu. Once they have
fully downloaded, you can tap them to access the software.
What to Do:
Your eshop downloads will in fact be deleted.
There is no get around for this, really if you delete your eshop account all the downloads will come with it, but I agree with @Trent, it's still a viable option to go and ask the customer service what they can do about this particular situation. They may be able to resolve this issue!
According to the official help page from Nintendo, you can't change the information that you want to change (your country information).
The Nintendo Network ID (username) and country cannot be changed once the account is created. The only way to change this information is to create a new Nintendo Network ID.
You do not need to delete the current Nintendo ...
All digital content for Nintendo (as of right now) is tied to:
Your Nintendo Network ID (NNID)
So technically Wind Waker HD was the previous owner's, and if they ever bought a Wii U again, they'd have to call Nintendo Support and hope they allow them to put that game on their new system.
If you don't remove the old NNID, you can play ...
There is no such option possible. The best thing you can do is to buy an online code and give this key to your friend.
Another option is to borrow the 3DS, put money on the account, buy the game, let it wrapped on the homescreen and give back the present.
There is however no way to transfer the funds from your account to his/her account:
Can I Transfer ...
They are not from my experience. I have bought several games on the eShop and transferred from an old 3DS to a New 3DS and all of the games came with my profile. As long as you have the same NNID you should be fine
I can confirm that they are linked to the account in question and NOT the 3DS themselves. In my line of work I often have to wipe 3DS's and sometimes I'm asked to download content from the store (that was previously purchased) on the customer's new 3DS.
You can call Nintendo at their service line (1-800-255-3700) and they can help "unlock" your account from your old DS. You will need your Nintendo Network ID, birthday, possible your email, and you will need to tell them a couple of your past transactions.
This is all to verify that it is your account and not anyone else's. Also, they might ask for your ...
Your brother got a 3DS with a preinstalled game, that means at that point when he created a Nintendo ID the game was linked to his Account which means he will loose the game and its progress if you delete his NNID.
This is the Problem of the NNID and the 3DS, you cannot switch a NNID unless you do a factory reset which again ends in deleting the NNID and ...
You can format the system to remove the Nintendo Network ID without deleting it. Nintendo Network accounts removed in this way will not be deleted from the Wii U (if linked), and can be relinked to the same Nintendo 3DS system again in the future. For more information click here
Deleting a Nintendo Network ID will also delete the following information ...
According to Nintendo's Wii U to Wii U transfer FAQ:
Will I need to redownload content on the target Wii U after the transfer has been completed?
During the system transfer process, any content that was downloaded on the source Wii U will be added to Download Manager on the target Wii U. This means it will be queued to download automatically after the ...
Save games are not saved to your NNID. The only things stored there are which games (and DLC) you have purchased. You can redownload purchased games, for example.
Saved games are stored on the SD card (for digital games) and on the cartridge itself (for physical games).
I'm not sure exactly how you'd connect your NNID to a new 3DS, but I know it's possible ...
Only one Mii and username can be associated with a Nintendo Network ID at a time. If it is changed on one device, it automatically changes on the other. You have two options:
Use the same Mii and username as your brother
Create a new NNID and associate it with the Wii U. You can find instructions for this on Nintendo's website.
Good luck! Feel free to ask ...
In the Miiverse settings or in NNID settings on your 3DS, there's an option that allows or denies the use or your NNID outside the 3DS (= on the Miiverse web site).
I can't exactly say where because I don't have mine now, but it exists.
