Had the same problem with my sons 3DS.
Check the ribbons behind the top LCD screen. They come loose from opening and closing the DS and can cause a short. In mine, I was lucky and it was just a loose ribbon so it could be fixed.
To expose the back of the top LCD screen, follow ifixit instructions. Be careful removing the screws. The speaker magnets are quite strong and the screws are attracted to them which could tear the speaker cone.
Check to see that all the small ribbons under the speakers (volume, camera, 3D) are properly seated in the connectors. The connectors are like buckles. To reset a loose ribbon, gently lift the top of the connector latch opposite of where the ribbon is inserted. Carefully re-insert any loose ribbons and close the latch.
I then created some slack in the main ribbon at the bottom and taped it down so it wouldn't move when the DS was opened and closed.
This solution worked for me.
i'm having the same issue as andrew had, my 3ds after i turn it on, it shuts off in 3 seconds, before it made popping sounds, when i dropped it, it was fine, except that the brightness on the top screen was more like a five, i really need help on this, if anyone had the same problem and got theirs fixed without calling nintendo, please help me out here.

I have the same problem, except at random moments during gameplay it makes a popping sound, goes black, then resets the time. I think I figured out how to make it stop (by not moving the top screen while playing) but when I move it, it resets. Gets kinda annoying, especially playing games when you need to tilt it or move it around.

I have the same issue. I have taken the 3ds apart but all ribbons seemed to be seated well and there doesn't seem to be any tears in the ribbons. The only thing I noticed was the WiFi antenna is torn a bit. In all fairness I don't remember if I tried it with the WiFi off. Could the WiFi antenna cause this issue?
