3DS Screen of Death

Paper Magolor04726

Duh duh duh dah! Duh duh duh!
My Nintendo 3DS started doing this thing a while ago, where every once in a while, the screen would stay dark after I turned it on, and then pop up a few seconds later. The music still plays, and I can still navigate the screen, but the screen stays black. It's gotten more and more frequent. I was wondering if anyone else has a problem with something like that, and if there's a way to fix it. I hope I don't have to buy a new one...

The top screen must be comming lose from the bottom screen and the motherboard.
I had that happen to one of my multiple 3DS's. It didn't have a black screen the entire time it was powered on.
