    Hello Guys,

    New poster, but I have lurked here for years. On the weekend my New 3ds xl with dual IPS failed and I am looking at replacing. I found a place with a 3ds xl in my location but wanted to ask based on the pictures if these screens are ips or tn.

    Thanks in advance

    It is from a second hand store so he wouldn't have any idea about doing it.

    You could bring in a copy of oot3ds and an sd card with oothax on it + 3dsident.

    I don't have oot3ds :(
    The issue I have is there is no 3ds xl for sale in my town and this one is located the next town over. I know the guy personally so I know he would let me return it if I find they aren't ips screens.

    pretty sure the bottom screen is tn, while the upper one looks like ips
