Black Line on my NEW Pikachu 3DS XL :(

#1FinalFantasyForeverPosted 3/28/2013 9:11:24 PM
I got it literally less than 12 hours ago, and never dropped it, banged it against something, or misused it. I was playing Mario Land 3D and then I noticed this faint line when in 3D mode. It persists in 2D mode and in all other applications and games, including the home screen as you can see below:

What causes this? I transferred my DSi XL titles over already ;_;

Take it back to where you bought it for an exchange.

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

I got it from Walmart.com, and they are out of stock, as is a 50 mile radius. The website says I have 90 days for returns/exchanges, so I'm going to see if more shipments come in by then.

X: X... you called me X... is that my name?
Dr. Light: That's right. It's a variable. It represents unlimited potential.

Well, if no more shipments come in, I guess I'll keep it, but it is distracting on white backgrounds.

Yeah, the only annoying thing is I got it literally 12 hours ago and it's defective. I shouldn't have to pay for the repairs, if it does need a repair.
