So, I think my screen got scratched.

i once heard petroleum jelly can fix scratched screens...i would do more research though before doing it on the 3DS or just send it to Nintendo and give them hell until they fix it
Really? Maybe I'll try that first. I'm sending it in, so I've got nothing to lose. XD
TC I suggest you live with the scratches until after vacation, and then send it in.

I also know that if (for the wii) the disc can't be read, you can highlight the back, and then wipe it off - thus getting it to work.

I found an article on Google that mentioned that. I don't want to risk it, though. You think a kit designed for TV's sold at places like Best Buy would work? The screens are the same, the 3DS just doesn't have a matte finish.


well i used the the petroleum jelly once(i was about to just put jelly but didn't want someone to put grape jam on any electronics) and it worked on my plasma tv (22-24 inches i think) and i can't tell the scratch is there anymore but you could talk to someone at best buy about the tv kit see what they think...the jelly is just cheaper

If it appears black when the 3D is turned on, then it is a scratch, right? I want to be sure.

THAT is in fact a scratch. I have it too. I thought it was a little hair at first. :'(

Got it, thanks.

Will it be user removable or no?
