My 3DS is acting weird...

The touch screen has flickering bars that look like this:

||||||||||||
||||||||||||
||||||||||||

Just the lines are together (vertically). I turn the system on and off, but it didn't help. Is this happening to anyone else? Also, I have screen protectors, so does that make a difference?

Sounds like a problem with the screen. Try removing the protector just in case. If it's still like that, you should probably just send it in to get fixed, in which case the protector would just be removed anyways.

Did you do something to the screen like hit your stylus on it SUPER hard?

I knew this day would come. Nintendo is turning us in mindless drone soldiers so they could use us to take over the world. The sony defense force was right; they were only trying to safe us. Why didn't we listen? WHY? *throws 3DS under a train*

Oh, that was weird...I didn't remove the protector, but it stopped...this has actually been happening a lot now. It will start, but then it will stop a few minutes later.

Oh so nothing is wrong, then? *scrambles to pick up the piece of the 3DS* it's still good, it's still good.
