Problem Solution
Console turns off after 2-3 Seconds

with a Popping Sound

The three main causes (credit: MilaNavi on YT) for any device in the Nintendo DS/3DS family to turn off with a popping sound are faulty ribbon cables and/or connectors for:
  1. the upper-screen 3D (these are actually two cables);
  2. the lower LCD backlight;
  3. the speakers.

Reseating one or all four of these cables might fix the problem. If it doesn't, the cables themselves or the connectors will probably need to be replaced.
