    Hello, I recently got a DS off ebay (faulty) but I have no idea what this mark on the screen is, dead pixels or is the screen just messed? I don't see any cracks from the image, messaged here because It won't be here for a while.

    Thanks

    Dead pixels? Mate this screen got hit by a bulldozer. It's harder to find an OK pixel than a dead one

    Looks like the console has been dropped or smacked, in the picture i notice the screw covers are gone and the bottom screen has lines across it to so i'd be wary that it's not a console repair person who puts broken parts together to sell them off.

    The bottom screen could be water damage, but could be fixable by adjusting the screw inside the battery compartment.

    Looks like someone dropped it before. This is broken. No way this could be fixed unless you refurbish it with another parts.

    Yeah I also have one which has no visual damage but doesn't turn on wondered if swapping the screens could be a good idea?
