Screen Appears Dark

  • Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems, and may not work correctly.
  • Try adjusting the screen's brightness to make sure it isn't turned down too low. If the light still doesn't work properly, the unit will need to be repaired. See repair/replacement options for the system only.
  • If you are playing in sunshine, try adjusting the screen's brightness down. Having the light turned up can give it a "washed out" look when played in sunlight.

If the steps above do not solve the problem you are experiencing, your system will need to be repaired. Please click here to find out what options are available for repair or replacement of your product.
