    Just got the 3DS today and I noticed that my left speaker does not produce sound.
    I didn't notice it when playing Street Fighter IV, but when hopping over to Pokémon HeartGold for a bit it was easy to notice.
    When battling, the Pokémon on my side don't make a sound (Cry, stat drops, etc.).
    I tried Surround and Stereo, but the left side remains quiet.
    Any advice as of what to do? [​IMG]
    (I used headphones and both left and right sounds came out like normal)

    You'll probably have to return it to the store you bought it from. This is a major problem, so they'd have to let you do it (whereas the problem most people have: the loose hinge, is not enough to warrant a return).

    I sure do hope the Christ that loose hinge is not enough for a return.
