I have a black 3DS that wobbles by about half a cm after it snaps into the open position and it bothers me when I play face raiders. My friend has a blue one and she has no problems with the hinge whatsoever. So I'm thinking about sending mine to Nintendo for repairs. However I already put screen protectors on mine a few days ago and I'm debating if I should take them off before sending it. I've never sent a console to Nintendo for repairs before, so I want to ask others who have. Does Nintendo actually repair something like a hinge issue or do they just send a replacement unit? I want to know only to help me decide whether I should take off the screen protectors and saving it for later. Oh and before you say "return it to the store", this was given as a gift and I don't feel like going through all the trouble with Amazon. Thanks.
