    Scratches aren't sufficient enough reason for repairs. If your system still operates fine, then they won't accept it.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Register the system on Club Nintendo to extend your warranty and get it in their system.

    If the scratches are on the top screen where the bottom frame lines up, its their fault and they will replace it.

    I thought Nintendo accepted 3DS's that had scratched screens caused by the bottom screen?

    Not on NoA's repair site but most of the 3ds's with the screen problem also have the loose hinge problem and they cover that.

    I assumed he was referring to general scratches. Not to the screen-scratching issue.
    although i wouldn't put that against him

    Read my PM, instead of shipping it to Nintendo, wait a few weeks, its better to do it manually. And it's cheaper :)

    You'd rather do it the hard way? Post a picture on GBAtemp, lets see how bad it is.

    Turn it on and throw it in the pond and leave it for a couple of hours.
    Then send it back to Ninty and hope that with crossed fingers they'll replace it.

    Jokes aside.
    I also got very faint scratches on the top screen.
    I hardly care much about it since it's barely visable.

    If I where you could send it in and hope for the best.
    Or just replace the shell yourself.

    You honestly expect him to trust some unofficial repair on his $150+ handheld, according to a random person on a forum, over a repair from the company that made it?

    No, this guy is my best friend in Real life, there is a mall in our area that does it for short prices. It's not illegal.

    Nowhere did he say it's illegal. Having a "best friend from REAL. LIFE!!!!!111!!!one!" doesn't warrant the fact that he should send it to him.

    Actually he already knows about that, but I was reminding him, he also went there for DS hacking needs. I rest my case, Super
