This $86 Zelda 3DS Was Supposed to be an Easy Fix – I bought a 3DS XL (Zelda edition) on eBay from someone selling it because it had analog stick issues. However, what started as a simple analog stick replacement turned out differently than I expected once I got the 3DS open and saw the mess inside. Things purchased on eBay don’t always turn out as expected… but that doesn’t mean I can’t fix them!!

About This Video: A Legend of Zelda 3DS XL I purchased on eBay had issues that at first seemed to be caused by a messed up analog stick. After I got it taken apart I discovered someone had tried to glue the analog stick ribbon cable on because the locking tab for it was missing. Turns out the analog stick worked just fine and once the locking tab was replaced and everything was cleaned up this 3DS was good to go.
