Top screen light is out but screen works

Thank you so frusterated bought my son 3ds and top light is out now screen works can see it when direct light is shinning in screen. Is there just a bulb that can be replaced ? Or is there someone that can fix this problem cheap enough to be worth fixing it? And finally I bought it used can the warrenty still be effective? Thank you so much for all help.

A new top screen is about £13 to buy online, depending on how experienced a game shop is, they should be able to fit it in about 20 minutes so you would be cheapest to phone a game shop and tell them you have the screen so just want it fitting and see what they say.

There is a guy on eBay that supplies and fits them for £35.



Yep it seems so as if you do a search for 3ds backlights there doesn't seem to be anyone selling it on it's own so i don't think they can be replaced.
