    While Trying to replace my o3ds top screen, I had to open the back of the 3ds. When I was inside, the bottom 3 screws were REALLY stripped, any tips on removing them? I don't have any special tools and no money.

    Drill just enough to get the heads off so you can separate the 3ds, then a vise-grips or pliers on the stubs to get them out.

    How can you replace a ribbon cable DEEPLY ATTACHED in the actual lcd? Isn't that non removable?

    Spent like 13 dollars for my 2nd replacement screen/the one that broke. It snapped as soon as I touched it. I'll just get a new 3ds. Nintendo makes it a pain in the ass to repair their consoles. I literally shed tears when it snapped. So dramatic.
