    Hi people, just doing my usual stuff with my 3ds until i realise something........
    I usually never set my brightness level higher then 3, but when i did try...level 4 & 5 while charging, the 3ds both screen flickers!!!!!
    The 3ds is about 95-100% full, when it is fully charged, i unplug and plug back in the charger into the 3ds and werid things happens~
    here the video of it

    Turn the 3D off.

    Hmmm... you're from Singapore.

    Where did you get your 3DS from?

    I got mine from qisahn and did not have any of such issue.

    Try returning it. [​IMG]

    EDIT: OMG 500!!!!!!!

    IT'S THE 3D!

    The slider is slightly raised. That's what's causing it.

    Yikes [​IMG] That system looks like Poltergeist!

    Stay away from it!

    Edit: I'm going against my own advice -- going to try to reproduce this ghostly effect on my system.

    Mine at 3D no such issue (but raised to full)... [​IMG]

    Hmmm! Try turning the 3D to full or turn it off and see what happens... [​IMG]

    It's because it's a video and the camera isn't pointed head-on like you would normally look at the screen with the 3D on.

    It looks more like a voltage regulation problem than 3D.
    Try someone else's charger.

    I doubt it's 3D since the bottom screen is flickering too.

    This is a local set console... apparently (i think) you forced the 2 pined europlug into the socket. An export with a US 2 prong would never fit into our socket. [​IMG]

    So this charger will work fine in our region... 220 - 240V, 50 Hz...

    Tsk tsk... maxsoft, why must provide a faulty charger?

    Darn it! Come to think of it I have not bought a 3DS US charger!!!!

    Mine does the exact same thing. I think when it is set on max brightness it pulls more amps than what the charger can push.
