My O3DS was working fine. I put a 3ds cartridge in, and suddenly both screens faded and became pixelated. It’s been that way ever since.
I checked the ribbon cabes in the back and they all seem connected fine, I don’t know which ribbon cables the LCD’s are, though.

Photo: Look at majoras mask icon. the black is fine but all colors are faded. The bottom is very faded and pixelated, easy to tell. Hard to tell on the top screen but same deal. pixelated as well.

Any reason this happens or a possible fix? I really love my O3DS and it has CFW and is beautiful.

Thanks :)

If you have another fully functional o3DS, try swapping the motherboards. If the problematic unit's mobo placed in the good donor's body also shows pixelated and washed out displays, this likely means your o3DS has a early stage GPU failure.
