    I've had my 3ds for about 2 years now (ambassador), but the past few months, the top screen started to show some weird discoloration. If I twist the base of the 3ds the image returns for a second or two, but goes back. Also, when playing in 2d mode, all the screen shows is a black background with a white stripe. I opened it up, since no warranty, but saw no chipped ribbons or anything out of the ordinary. Is it something a screen replacement fixes, or should I just buy a new one?

    You might need to replace the screen. Try sending it to repair, Nintendo is known for being awesome at technical assistence in the USA, often repairing things for free even past the warranty. That's because they profit more with games than with the system itself.

    i think you should just buy a new 3DS and do a system transfer.

    then after everything is transferred, sell the broken 3DS on ebay "as-is for parts".

    its quite an expensive proposition, but usually taking apart a DS not worth the time and effort and risk of making it even worse.
