    Hi guys I've just notice on top of my dsi xl dark brown Is a white mark. I don't know Is It dirt or part of the dsi shiny surface etc. I've also sorted my acekard 2i today after updating It on my friends dsi. And everything Is working fine now on my dsi xl. Thanks for your time.

    Have you tried wiping it off with a soft cloth? (Not sure if DSi XL comes with one, think my Wii did so it's possible, I mean the sort of cloth you get with glasses/spectacles)

    If it's on the screen itself and doesn't come off, it is probably a dead pixel as flatoutvincent says.

    If it's ont he housing itself and doesn't come off, feck knows what caused it. [​IMG]

    Either way if it's a manufacturing defect like a dead pixel or malformed case/paintwork you should be able to get it replaced. [​IMG]

    well that's enough of my waffling. :-P

    He already said it wasn't on the screen.

    Maybe it is just a fleck of paint or dirt or something that got stuck underneath.

    OMG A SPOT?! ON MY GAME SYSTEM?! Seriously dude don't baby your stuff like that. Put screen protector on it and other than that a scuff or spot is just that, a scuff or a spot.

    Your DS is experiencing symptoms of early onset AIDs.

    I'm.... I'm sorry.

    It could just be you smacked your system on something without knowing about it, and it left a mark. Could you remember any times that might have happened? Or possibly you have a little brother/sister who played with it and got that mark?

    The picture isn't the best of pictures, can't really see anything, and what part of the DS that is.
