I bought myself a 3DS XL a couple of days ago, but have noticed the bottom screen has some light leaking/bleeding on the left hand side.
It's most obvious when there's a light/white image on the screen.
I took a photo, although it's not as noticeable in the photo as when you see it in person: http://imgur.com/i4NT4
So, here's a CSI-style 'enhance' image that shows it a bit more clearly: http://imgur.com/CNjUW
Is this something that is 'normal' for a 3DS XL? Just a side-effect of the backlighting technology used?
I'm tempted to swap it for another one, but there's not much point if the replacement won't be any better. Plus, I don't want to risk getting one with dead pixels, etc.

I'd contact Nintendo for this. You may get told to replace it at the store

So it's not 'normal'?

I don't own a XL, but I can tell you that the lighting isn't normal.
You had better call Nintendo like @LzBirdboi said.

Thanks all, I'll try returning it to the store I bought it from.
