This problem can be as simple as the battery died or ribbon cables inside getting loose.

And although very unlikely, there could be some issues with the motherboard as my friend's new 3ds xl had the same problem and that's why his console won't start.

Battery isn't dead, at least that is what the power LED shows, checked all ribbon cables, none are loose but one is missing the pin connector. It was probably that, thank you for answering.
