    I can acquire a broken hinged phat ds
    But other than the hinge, the top screen is fuzzy.

    Is this fixable?

    You probably just have to replace the screen.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Does DX sell topscreens?
    I know they sell bottoms.
    And I would have to buy a fat case [​IMG]

    In the phat the top and bottom screens are the same...
    EDIT: Probably not the top screen. I think it's the long topscreen cable that goes through the hinge. I think that's all you need to replace, not the whole screen.

    I had thought of that, but not sure how to change a ribbon :/
    So Replace the hinge and probably the ribbon.
