    My New 3DS Touch Screen is Inacurrate on the left side.
    When I star from left edge and go to the right edge, the screen is offset. When I get to the middle and near the right edge, its getting acurrate.

    Any way to fix this.

    If I do press hard on the stylus, it is getting more accurate

    Honestly this sounds like hardware failure. I'd consider getting a replacement. If at all possible.

    Just suddenly.
    The console is in perfect condition and was never been dropped.

    This happens to me everytime I system format. What you can do is:

    1. Clean the screen real good.

    2. When calibrating, press the stylus a little to the left (not much) and press a little firm. But not to hard.
