    First of all: I hope this is the correct forum for me to post this in.

    Well, this is the case. Yesterday, I bought Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney from the Nintendo EShop (great game, very funny, I recommend it to all of you!)
    A part of my 3ds's touchscreen has been broken for a long time now. Unfortunately, I ran into a certain puzzle in my new game pretty early, which is touchscreen-based. Apparently, I need to solve it before I can continue. But I need that part of my touchscreen that's broken as well... The result? I think I wasted €45,- :'(
    Well, one of my friends told me "you know, they can fix that". That got me thinking. That's why I want to ask you a few questions:

    1. Does anyone on this website know a company (preferably Dutch) that fixes 3ds touchscreens?
    2. Do more people have this problem? It's an original blue 3ds, btw.
    3. Or do you guys think it's just time for me to buy a new 3ds?​

    This is a pic of the area that's broken:

    As you can see, it's the center >_<

    Oh, and one more question. If I decide to buy a new 3ds, if I log in to Nintendo Network with my account, I can download the game for free to my new 3ds, since I already bought it before?

    I don't know. I think you should probably should send it to Nintendo for repairs, but when I looked into that for my 3DS, it cost $125 USD. So maybe you should just get a new one.
    I have never downloaded a full game, so I really don't know.

    I think it's better for you to buy a New 3DS. That way, you wouldn't have to worry about your touch screen, and at the same time, you get to have a more powerful gadget to use. Don't worry, your money won't be wasted. Once you get a New 3DS, you can perform a System Transfer so that all the data on your old 3DS will be transferred to your New 3DS. For more information, check this out.

    Nintendo themselves can repair it if is send in to them, is really the only ones I know that repairs 3DS and N3DS consoles. But like @[member="LadySmugleaf"] have already said, it seems to cost a lot of money to just do that.


    Some data is lost doing the transfer though, mainly save data from titles downloaded from the eShop, that happened when I transferred data from my old to my new so certain data will be lost doing the transfer.

    The save data is actually saved in the SD card. So if you insert your old SD card into your new 3DS, there shouldn't be a problem (Nintendo has a guide on how to do this). For New 3DS models though, you'll have to transfer the data from your SD card to a MicroSD card since that's what the New 3DS uses.

    Which I have, so I'm screwed on that point since I have no ports I can use for SD cards.

    Hmm, that's unfortunate. I don't know what went wrong there though. I was able to do it with my 3DS to my 3DS XL with no problems.

    N3DS and the regular 3DS use totally different cards and since I got no port on my PC I can use to manually transfer the data I'm screwed. Doing it from 3DS to 3DSXL is different.

    This is also something @[member="Megarai111"] needs to take into account if she buys a new console.

    Ohh so your problem was that you couldn't transfer the data to your MicroSD, I get it now :/ Yeah that might be a problem. Card readers do come in handy for those situations. There are cheap ones worth $3-$5 too so it's worth taking a look at.

    Yes exactly, is something that should be kept in mind. From 3DSXL to N3DS should not be a problem from what I've read in the manual that comes with the N3DS, from 3DS/3DSLite to 3DSXL ain't a problem either. Is just something Mag should keep in mind if she got a regular 3DS or 3DSLite which I assume she got since she only stated is a 3DS.

    Thanks, @[member="LadySmugleaf"], @[member="Rafael"] and @[member="Karzarill"]! Your advice has been very helpful :)
    I might decide to buy a new 3ds later, though. Another friend of mine has sent me a link to a company's website that's able to fix everything, from a broken L/R-button to the camera, or... a touchscreen! It'll only cost me €22,50 :)
    Buying a new 3ds is a little bit too expensive for me, right now ^_^`
    The 3ds I have is an original 3ds, I think. Let's see what the box says... Yup, it just says "Nintendo 3DS". The liney design is very fancy, even though it appears to be a bit vurnerable.
    I didn't even know there was a System Transfer function...
    Looks like I don't have wasted away €45,- after all :)

    @[member="Megarai111"] Be sure to check how legit that company is before sending them anything.
