    Gaming DSi XL has darker pixels on edge of screens.

    I would guess any of the following... It's just a well used console. It's had its screens replaced with 3rd party screens. (probably not as both your screens have the same issue) It's been wet at some point. To check for water, remove the battery cover, lift out the battery and there is a...

    Seems to be a thing with second hand DS Lite / Dsi / DSi XL consoles, often you can be lucky and the seller will have only used it for touch screen games, but buy one from someone who has played Fifa on it and you'll notice you can only move the player up/down/left/right naturally but to use...
