    Hello. I've been looking pretty much everywhere for a replacement upper screen for the New 3DS XL, but the ones I've found are either crazy expensive or screens made for the old 3DS XL, but advertised as "New".

    Would anyone be able to help me out here? I'd send it to nintendo for $85, but something tells me they'd refuse to do anything with it since I opened it up myself.

    Are you looking for a screen or a service which will replace it for you?

    I'm looking for a screen for right now since the service would probably cost some ridiculous amount of money, but if it's less than $85, I might consider it. It'd just make more sense for me to do it since I've done this a lot.

    ...UNLESS someone here does hard mods for the New 3DS XL, and would do the mod and replace the screen for me.

    I don't know if there are any manufactures making screens yet... But..
    You could always get one that was taken from a used/broken/defective N3DS xl... people often sell parts from broken consoles on ebay

    This one says it was removed from an N3DS XL...

    That does not look like an original part it's a stock photo, when buying stuff like that you want actual pictures.

    I was looking at this one earlier, but it seems ridiculous to sell it for over $50. Old 3DS XL screens are selling for around $20, and from what I know, they're almost the exact same thing, except for the ribbon connectors. I'm sure there's something else going on there, but it shouldn't drive the price up that much, regardless.

    Looks like I might not have any other choice, though.
