Non-serviceable screen, unfortunately.

I really hope this changes in future. I want to be able to change out the digitizer if it ends up getting badly scratched or scuffed, without having to replace the whole screen.

Oh man remember when the original Gameboy had that problem? I couldn't figure out for the life of me how the dust was getting in there. I thought the plastic cover on the screen was a tight enough seal. Drove me nuts but it was too much trouble trying to take it apart every time.

My girlfriends fire emblem 3ds has like 4-5 specs of white perma dust under the screen. Think my XL has at least one too.

Really annoying. Luckily our gamepad has yet to be affected... I think >_>
Every dang time...

I always lay the dust cover that came with my system over my Gamepad when not using it.
Works great and keeps my screen mostly dust free!
