This is a simple screen fix. They will just swap the screen. See what you should do by contacting nintendo.


i say theres a better chance that they will just give him a a new Pikachu XL entirely, altough to be honest im not sure how Nintendo handles repairs for Limited Edition Consoles.


Well, judging from past manufacturer errors with their systems that I have had... they will probably just replace the screen instead of replacing the system itself.
Most systems that I send in with screen issues are usually fixed with a new screen.

Yeah, I'm guessing a top screen swap would be easiest, but you never know since it just came out. I even was hoping that Walmart.com would show some availability for their stores, but nothing within 50 miles of my address, and 50 miles of my parents' address lol.

Sending it via UPS in an hour or so! Hoping for a speedy turn-around--though it's all the way in CA.

If I were you, I'd mail it to Nintendo to fix it. The warranty should be applied, no? Anything less than a year old gets fixed for free.

You might want to check out this message board where this guy had dead pixels, too, and Nintendo said they couldn't exchange/fix it.

really, just send a email to nintendo and see what they have to say about it. if you're lucky, they may replace it with a new pikachu


And if you're even luckier, they might replace it with a different 3DS XL that isn't hideously ugly.

We get it, you don't like the Pikachu one. Either that or you're one of those jealous kids whose mommy wouldn't buy them one. No need to post this in every thread about the Pikachu 3DS, if you don't like it then fine but there are plenty of people out there who have a different opinion.
