Topic: Is this normal for a 3DS screen?

Hello,

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.

Cheers,
Sam

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

So it's not 'normal'?

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