I've always been such a klutz. I put my 3DS on a slanted pile of textbooks and it plopped onto the carpet from the height of 2 foot. Now everything works fine except the top screen's pixels have a dusty appearence. They are not exactly dead pixels but they are like tons of specs dotting the corners of the screen. Should I get my 3DS replaced? It works fine, just looks bad :/ I don't have a warranty either.

i can be pretty paranoid when it comes to my electronic gadgets. i sent my DSi in to replace a loose hinge where metal was showing. nintendo would have charged me around $80 to fix it but the lady over the phone was told by her boss to let me have it get fixed for free. i don't know if you could get away with getting this little problem of yours fixed for free like what happened with my DSi but it is well worth a shot. after all you don't want a small thing to grow worse in the future kinda like a small infection turning into something bad like a virus. just saying.

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade. And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

... I think I know the problem.

Everytime I have 3D turned on, I notice some particles on the screen (It makes it look like dust on a window kinda). Just clean the screen. Otherwise, contact Nintendo.

Well first of all, make sure that it is not actually dust that is on the top screen. Then see if it goes away simply by turning it off and on again. If that doesn't work, then just continue using it anyway, since you don't have accidental damage cover (you will have a warranty, the console has a year from Nintendo, but it doesn't cover damage caused by your own negligence).
If you really have damaged, though, I don't know how you managed it. A 2ft drop onto carpet shouldn't harm it at all. Was it open at the time?

Please sign my petition to get a European (and Australian) release for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for the 3DS.
Don't let Europe be deprived of another amazing game.

Could have bought it used from a used game store. Thats the only way I can think of a person not having a warranty.

That, or dropping the device. Electronics that get dropped and are damaged/defect trough the fall are not covered by warranty, only factory faults.

could have got it in a country in which you do not live, that would mean that you would have no warranty

Well you might be able to get it fixed for free. because one time my dslite broke and i called nintendo and since nothing happened before to my dslite they fixed it for free.

True I forgot that factor as well, Also I know that if you mod it that ruins the warranty as well.
