    Hi Guys.

    First, I'm the kind of guy that realizes even the small details in my things. So, an hour ago I turned on my 3DS as I normally I do. I use EmuNand with Luma CFW. When it got in the CTR bootscreen, I saw the borders in the upperscreen kind of shaking. It was just a little bit. I ignored and I opened the Pokemon Sun. When the game started and I loaded my save, I saw a line next to the bottom of the screen, and the
    side edges were shaking a little bit.

    I shut down the device, and I turned on again. The same thing happened. I almost started to cry, because I found my upper screen was getting broken.

    I decide to shut down and started SysNand. Nothing happened. It seemed everything was fine.

    I went do EmuNand again and then started Pokemon and no problem. Everything normal. No line at the botton.

    When the issue happened, I think the 3D was on. I don't remember. But I remember to switch on and off when the issue was happening and nothing changed.

    I just wanna ask you guys if something similar already happened with some of you. I'm worried this could be a real issue in my screen, and those things in my country it's a big pain. Probably it's gonna be expensive and hard to find some to place to repair it. Or, this could be just a bug. I don't know.

    Thanks anyway.

    This issue has happened to others before, there's a thread about it here. Same thing happened to me a while ago, removing the battery from my N3DS XL and leaving it out for a little while solved the problem.

    The same happened to me last night as well, I removed the battery for a good 30 minutes and it looks like it solved the problem. I hope this never, ever happens again since I don't want to replace my n3dsxl

    Remove the battery seems to solve the problem. However, this happened again with me, at least 2 times more.

    And there is it again, flickering number 2

    I see a sort of pattern in this since it happened on the same way as before.

    I was in the hblauncher (gridlauncher for me) opened a title from there, got stuck on black screen. Held down the power button rebooted and bam, there was the flickering again...
