Clean the contacts with rubbing alcohol.
Hi
thanks for the reply have tried your suggestion but the screen remains the same.if i move the 3d slider up it will brighten the screen slightly
i was wondering is the backlight supplied through the main ribbon cable that connects top lcd to motherboard or is through the two smaller ribbon cables
at the side that connect to speaker/3d ribbon cable or could there be a component failure or short to ground ?

You will need to disassemble the 3DS XL to find out. If the ribbon cables are loose, just reseat them.
They said they tested a replacement screen. The system's already been disassembled enough to verify it's not the screen itself.

Unfortunately, I'm not any help with this either.
