    Hi,

    Did someone have the similar issue with the bottom screen?

    Right side has some gap with something like bleeding effect:

    click for larger size

    Left side is ok:
    IMG_0746.jpg
    click for larger size

    I know that I crazy perfectionist :) but is it possible to get rid of this? No problem with teardown but not sure that I can fix something myself or do I need to replace the whole screen?

    Also my top screen is IPS and bottom is TN, any chance to buy IPS bottom screen somewhere? :)

    M8 thats the right side.
    My friends top screen is like that plus a bit green and its ips. I dont think theres anything you can do expect get a new screen.

    Most likely you'll at least need to take apart that 3DS. Fates Limited Edition units have IPS bottom screens.

    So no chances to find bottom IPS screen separately?

    The only way to get an ips display would be to salvage it from another 3ds. (Maybe someone could sell it seperately, but you would need to be on the look out constantly)

    There's absolutely no problem. It's completely normal. The backlight bleeds, which is why it looks like what it does.

    It's not common to have a perfectly backlit screen, actually.
