I don't think a broken touchscreen is included in warranty since it's very likely you broke it yourself.

Twin retro shut the hell up if you have nothing better to say. I will inform Costello on you :angry: :angry: :angry:

Calm down newbie. All I'm asking is what your question is, or if you're just ranting. If it's just a rant, it belongs in the Blogs section. What's with the rage, broski?

Also, I'm sure Costello wouldn't appreciate you using him as a threat.

Let me ask his question:

I'd let my 3DS fall down somewhere. My Touch Screen does not work anymore, I'd send it to Nintendo for repairs. It is still under warranty and they let me pay $117,- for repairs. Is it legal to ask me this amount of money for just some repairs?

Asnwer:

It is understandable that Nintendo won't repair this thing for free since YOU let it fall somewhere, like you said I did let it fall, and if I fellow the law(international laws and warranty rules from Nintendo) then I should be correct with my statement since it was your fault.

117 DOLLARS? DOLLARS? EXCUSE ME, then buy a new one instead, since the repair costs are way too high. Buying a new 3DS would have more pro's

And narutopet112, don't be mad smile! Else I will post a song(Be Happy - SNSD) in this topic ;P

Sorry bro a little mad :(

No harm done, just be careful about the way you approach people on the forums. You don't have many posts, and you havn't left much of an impression yet. Just make sure whatever impression you do make is a good one. Once you get a bad rep on the forums, it's hard to get rid of.

Etcome has one for sale: http://www.etcome.com/product/genuine-new-bottom-lcd-screen-replacement-for-3ds.html

You need to know what you're doing tho, or you'll just mess up your 3DS even more.

You need to know what you're doing tho, or you'll just mess up your 3DS even more.

Just be aware, even though this is the bottom LCD, if your actual touch panel is broken, that's a completely separate part that you will have to buy separately.
Good point, I have no idea how extensive his damage is, it could be just the screen cracked (the bottom screen is plastic or something similar so meh, cracking isn't really the word), or it could have damaged some other parts too, like the ribbon cable and etc.
But that's something he needs to find out for himself or post pictures of.

its not a bad idea. Well i have enough money but its to much for touchscreen repair. I will maybe buy a new one
To be honest you could prob sell your broken one on ebay for a fair amount, you used to be able to get £50 for the broken ones on ebay when they were £120 to buy new, i know its less £70 but its better than nothing
