    Its acting as though I'm pressing buttons and scrolling around when I'm not touching it. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Is it commands from the actual buttons or just touchscreen commands? If its the touchscreen, then theres probably dirt or something stuck on the side. IDR the exact issue, but my 3DS worked perfect find after cleaning the sides of the touchscreen.

    Buttons I think? I don't know. It scrolls to the bottom right and clicks on whatever icon is there without me doing anything. Its infuriating.

    @optics I called Nintendo and they helped me figure it out. Turns out it was a calibration issue. I sure do feel dumb, but at least I didn't spend 80+ for repairs.

    Thank you for your help too. Much appreciated!
