Stuck pixel

#1GM_Posted 7/11/2011 8:24:48 PM
I just noticed that my brand new 3DS has a tiny light blue stuck pixel in the top right corner area. Should I exchange it for another system since it's under warranty or just ignore it? It's luckily not distracting at all but it is sort of sad because EVERY handheld device I've ever owned (no exaggeration) has had at least one stuck pixel. Is it really that common? I remember swapping out 4 psp systems and 5 original ds systems due to constantly getting them every time I returned them. Lol

Don't exchange it. Send it in. It should be back in a week depending on when you send it in, how many orders they have at the time, etc.
Exchanging it just loses your data, and gives you another chance for a defective unit. Sending it in gives you an almost 100% chance your system will be perfect aside from scratches, chips, etc. that you gave it.

I dunno, but you can read my review. It's like a demo [of The Sims 3]

You should definitely exchange your 3DS. Because, basically exchanging your 3DS with Nintendo might even clear up some problems you never knew were on your 3DS.

I had to swap my Wii twice. They don't repair the unit you send in and send it back to you, they just give you another unit. 3DS should be the same.

Pretty sure people have sent there's and gotten it back with all their downloads and Activity Log data saved.

Yes, that's exactly what they do with Wiis. They can transfer the data. We can't.

Look at the serial numbers.

You can try unstick it.

Just put a bunch of single-colour pictures on your 3DS and try rapidly cycle through them.

Try red, blue and yellow; the three primary colors (I think).

95% of the time, Nintendo just replaces it. That being said, they probably check it for defects before they send it to you.
