    Hi folk!

    I have some trouble with two screens on one of my 3DS XL.

    Long time ago, I broke the clip for the large ribbon of bottom screen. No trouble about it, I fix it properly with some tape and it went perfect!

    Now, since few days, I have some display troubles:

    - top screen, in game when playing 2D seems to have a bad refresh. Thin moving vertical lines are visible and give me some headaches. No problem on homescreen, and nothing really noticeable in 3D.

    - bottom screen have weird colors. Not a full fuschia or yellow screen... This is more like a point raster with bad colors or when you have not enough colors in your palette for a GIF image. This is slightly noticeable on light screens (like home), and more noticeable on some games like Pokémon X PSS screen or Smash Bros damage counters.

    I unmounted/mounted again the motherboard and cables.... But the trouble is still here.
    Top screen problem persist when bottom screen display ribbon is not connected.

    Any idea where the problem come of and how to fix it?

    No idea about the origin of this issue guys?

    After some tests and some search on the Web, I do not think the problem is with the screens themselves, the ribbons or the connectors... So it must be the motherboard (a chip or a circuit).
    I have no motivation to test an other one, so I think this one is good for junk.
