    My New 3DS XL (USA) dims the top screen periodically. It usually seems to happen when saving or loading levels, so I think it's when reading the microSD. I'm just using the 4GB SD the console came with.

    Is this normal?

    Yeah, turn the power saving feature off on the home menu.

    I'll try that. Thanks.

    It's on by default, but I turned it off to save battery by not having the camera always on
