You could try getting a replacement hinge and installing it, but that's pretty hard if you have never done a repair on a 3ds yet. If it's still playable just deal with it (my dual ips 3ds wobbles like crazy!) or if you can't stand it send it to nintendo

@snookiex628,beth, You are not the only one with this loose hinge issue, if still under warranty consider using the warranty for repair/replacement/refund. If not under warranty check the links below for a pretty much low/no cost fix and other info. Other wise you may end up having to replace the upper and lower case. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
