    Figured any of you that are considering returning it for repairs (either paid or under warranty) might like to see it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Tape or rubber band the envelope to the system? I guess that keeps them together...

    Now I gotta' find a correctly-sized box.

    I should have a box about that size somewhere... maybe in the attic.

    I happened to it. ^^; Tried to fix the L/R buttons myself and now even less works than before. >>; I'm just going to hope they repair/replace it anyways. ^^;

    Return kit?
    I didn't receive a return kit when I sent my 3DS DSi in for my repairs. Just an email with details.
    Lazy Nintendo of Canada. :/
    Edit: Mistake. Wrote 3DS instead of DSi. [​IMG]

    So you opted to print your own shipping label?

    I opted for them to mail me the stuff. X3

    How much are they charging you? Last time I tried they charged me 60. (20 dollars off) I can't seem to get them to do a free repair anymore. I got them to do it once for my DS Lite.

    It's free, with a DSi/XL you enter the serial number on the back and they can check and tell you if it's under warranty or not (since it's "activated" in-store when you buy it they have a record of the purchase date). I'm still within the warranty period and buttons not working is one issue they will fix for free.

    At least, I hope. There's other problems (I suck). ^^;

    How long does a warranty last? I am getting a DSi XL this weekend. Midnight Blue to be exact. I can't wait. I have wanted it since it's release.

    If you registered online (club Nintendo) you can get an additional 90 days warranty.

    Well, just checked and it's listed as fixed and shipped, the UPS tracking says it should be here tomorrow.

    I'll see if they even fixed anything, or if they fixed all the issues. X3
    Or sent me a replacement...

    you also get a letter due to flash card use on your dsi console here's a brand new one with extra protection to stop you using flash card and update won't overcome this ainti protection.

    They don't do that. I used an AK2i often on my DSi and got no such letter.
    BTW, they sent me a new one. They didn't bother repairing the 'R' button.

    Serial numbers, they also send you back a letter detailing what was replaced (for example I've seen them send back saying video cable / hinge blah blah was replaced).

    • Good News
      • The L/R buttons are fully responsive, even on Bangai-O Spirits! And the other stuff is fixed, too.
      • It was repaired instead of replaced, I forgot I had a small little protector in place for the outside camera, that's how I recognized it.
      • The paper they included said they found physical damage and would normally charge, but made an exception this time (and they'll charge next time). >>;
    • Bad News
      • It came back with sticky fingerprints all over the outside shell (not the inside/screen).
