    Ive been playing a few NES games with the nesDS emulator, and EVERY time i played it for more then 5minutes the upper DS screen gets somekinda burn mark. Like on the old TVs you know? It dosnt go away for about 30minutes of normal playing, but i can't shake the feeling that it will destroy my screen eventually.

    Have you experienced this? What did you do? Cheers.

    Can you describe the mark a bit more?

    I must honestly say that I've never experienced something like this.
    I've used NesDS for quite a while on my ds phat with R4.
    Are you sure it's only NesDS? What ds and flashcart are you using?
    Did you spill any liquids on your screen in the past?

    It's a brand new DSi XL, this is my second week having it.
    I use it with an AKi, AKAIO 6.2.

    It's always the high up side of the screen too, so it must be something with the NES that's always showing. Regardless of what game i play, it's the same kinda BURN in it. It's somekinda text which i cannot see what it says. You could say a flickery image with somekinda logo.

    I'll try to take a picture next time. Thanks for all the answers.

    There's your problem. The flux capacitor in your DS must be malfunctioning.

    Haha Flux Capacitor, Nice one,

    If you ever seen BTTF the flux capacitor is the unit that makes it possible for Mary and Doc to travel back in time, newer versions of the DSi XL has been released with this unit. *joke*

    Maybe you should check your DSi cause i don't get this problem from NESds

    But a picture might help us diagnose the problem a bit more.

    Its a component that directly feeds your DSiXL with 1.21 jigowatts of pure electrical force.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The whole Back to the Future thing was because you said AKAIO 6.2, when presumably you mean AKAIO 1.6 RC2.

    It happened to my DS Lite before (I replaced it a while ago, though), it was covered with transparent-grayish spots after a while, and they wouldn't go away.
    I just noticed after playing HeartGold that it's also happening on my DSi now.

    It's cool, I needed an excuse to get a free replacement, I scratched the screen while trying to clean it.


    EDIT: Oh, and it wasn't caused by nesDS. I noticed that problem after playing GBA games for a while. On my DSi all I do is play games that use both screens, i.e. DSiWare and (legit) DS games.
    I would take a picture, but it really isn't visible enough on my DSi for me to do it. It kind of looks like a rectangle with a margin of one half centimeter from the edge of the screen is dirty/greasy, I guess.

    I'm not sure if it's the same thing, though.

    It's probably your DS Screen that got damaged. You should get it replaced and place a screen protector on it.

    Not necessarily. A lot of people have not examined their consoles properly and spent wasted money on replacements that could have been fixed simply.

    send it out to nintendo, that's all you can do. It never happened to my ds, but it happened to my tv. The problem back then was that the screen got to much power, but I don't think that's the case here.
