    I've made several images that consist of different solid colours so that you can easily tell if your 3DS has (a) dead pixel(s) or not.

    Instructions:
    1. Insert the SD card from the 3DS into your PC
    2. Open the DCIM folder from the SD card. Inside the DCIM folder you will find another folder named 100NIN03, open it as well.
    3. Extract the .rar file
    4. Drag and drop the files from the folder 'Dead Pixel Images' into the 100NIN03 folder
    4. View the images on your 3DS using the 'Nintendo 3DS Camera' application and check for dead pixels

    If you see a pixel that does not match the selected images colour, it may be a dead pixel. I suggest you contact Nintendo or the shop you purchased the 3DS from and request a replacement.

    Make sure you wipe the screen completely clean as dirt particles can easily be mistaken for dead pixels. This is obvious to most people but it needs be stated just in case. [​IMG]
