Scratched DS screen-advice

Hi, my little boy has scratched the bottom screen on our ds, quite deep scratches.

Now I know you can buy replacements but how easy are they to fit? Or is there anywhere that I could get it fitted? & for roughly how much?

Thanks x

Have you tried dealextreme an american site. I have used them before on my daughters ds you can get the security driver from there as well ok to fit but you have to search the net for instructions. I think it all worked out to be less than a fiver??[URL="www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3245"]www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3245[/URL]

Try rubbing a little Vasaline onto the screen. Only a very small bit... might help?!

Thanks, have looked on there. In one review it says you need double sided foam?Is that right or just this screen and the tri screwdriver thingy? :thinking:

Tbh I'm not sure it would. The scratches take up the top right quarter of the screen. It looks like he's used something sharp as a stylus!! :x

if its the touch part its this one

there's loads of videos on youtube to talk you through it, my husband fixes them for his mates kids now, just remember to be careful with the power switch and shoulder buttons when you take it apart


So would it be easy for a complete novice do you think? I don't want to mess it up & have a ds on my hands I can do nothing with.....

Thanks to you all for your replies x

im afraid DS screen even with official stylus scratch quite easy, when you get a new screen buy some hori screen protectors as well theyre a perfect fit and stop the scratching of the screen, then when they get scratched they only cost pennies to replace, and take a minute!

Are they the ones on DX- for DS, do they also fit the lite?

no you need ds lite one and when fitting back together becareful of the on an off switch very easy to snap

Buy one cheap: [url]www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3245[/url] (great website might I add)

Instillation is easy; I did it with little knowledge of this kinda stuff

if it isnt affecting game playing i wouldnt bother, the lite ones are really fiddly to replace and could end up knackering it altogether
