    Top screen repair on a cfw monster hunter with Luma 3ds.

    Won't be sending it in with an SD card just had a crack in the LCD. called Nintendo, CS Rep was super polite and discounted the repair cost to a fraction of what it is making it very affordable.

    I wanted to know if people have done this in the past and how their experience was...of.its possible for them to still put in an IPS replacement screen (the current one with the crack is an IPS LCD)

    And I still have CFW in mime, done a system nand backup will backup game saves as well and CIAs...but can I just leave luma 3ds on the system? Remember its an LCD replacement I'll be paying for it...nothing to do with warranty

    Nintendo has sent back hacked 3DS systems without doing repairs and on top of that, banning them even if the custom firmware is uninstalled.
    There's also the chance you get a lazy technician who will outright swap yours for an already fixed, off the shelve same color/edition model.

    Nintendo has no obligation to repair your n3DSXL with an upper IPS LCD. You're better off buying the part yourself and outsource the screen repair to a 3rd party specialist.

    thanks for responding once again turdpoo, your the man

    shit I didn't know it was that crazy.... mine is a monster hunter 4 U edition, they told me they only have red and black to replace... so its likely that they won't have IPS panels in 2019...

    yikes.... what inconstancy... i'm better off buying the part and getting it done third party, I'm from Canada- not from the states though :(

    I talk to all my local cell phone dealers... some have said they have done it... most do not want to touch it, they know how tough of a repair it is
