This really hasn't been an issue with me until now. I got my 3DS at launch, and just a few days ago, I noticed what appear to be dead pixels on my screen. But, the weird thing is that I only see them when I turn the 3D on. When it's off, I don't see them at all. Is it just a smudge? Are they really dead pixels? I would upload photos, but it isn't easy to take a photo of the 3DS when the 3D is on. And like I said, you only see them when the 3D is on.
