    Guise, halp. Sometimes, my 3DS's top screen has a weird vertical line show up for like a half-second. I just started noticing it yesterday, and the only game I've been playing is Fire Emblem Awakening, only in 3D, if that's of any significance. Is this artifacting? Loose connection?

    I've never heard of that problem and I've been grinding on Fire Emblem for hours since I got it a few weeks ago. If you suspect the screen is damaged I would call Nintendo and get it sent in, especially if you're still under warranty.

    No warranty, and I checked on their site and they wanna charge me $85. Think I'll just buy a new 3DS. Maybe an XL.

    Unfortunate, I would check if there is a local electronic shop where you live to the repairs cheaper. Or just live it the damaged screen until you get a XL version.

    If the screen isn't that noticeable, I would try to trade it in at Gamestop toward the cost of a new/used XL

    Is it due to the bugs in Fire Emblem? I had the same problem with a gray line occasionally appearing, sliding down the screen, and then appearing on the other side sometimes.
