There's a small white line on my new 3ds xl. What can I run to "show" it to the employee when I return it later. It's really hard to see.

What default program has a blackscreen with a back light?

Don't ever buy handhelds from game specialty stores, you shouldn't have to prove your dead pixel, and a dead LINE of pixels sounds awful.

I buy handhelds from Walmart or best buy, they'll refund or exchange easily. Especially Walmart, I don't like them, but they have the best return policy ever.

Pretty sure Wal-Mart makes you prove it as well.

I popped in a game and waited until I got to an area with a black screen.

3/5 of my 3DS XL's had screen imperfections, and the 4th had a broken R button >.>

I once returned a shattered frame, all my fault, in pieces in a garbage bag. They refunded me without question.

I hope you don't have any hunt-the-pixel games.

Unofficial Froakie of the Pokemon X board.
Not to be confused with the webcomic. I've already received enough kicks in the nuts.

just lie and say it won't read carts or one of the shoulder buttons only works half the time. they should exchange it no questions.
