    Hello, so a few days ago I dropped something by accident on my N3DS XL's screen and noticed a little line like crack on it. Is this permanent/a actual crack on my screen? Or is there a way for me to fix it?
    Here's a picture of the crack in question on top of the words "the".

    Looks permanent to me, and I don't believe there's a quick fix for cracks like that. It's not bad though.. You should be fine

    It looks like an indentation to the plastic cover sheet of the top screen, as opposed to an actual crack in the LCD. The cover sheet should be replaceable, but I don't know where they can be purchased.

    Found some on ebay just search new 3ds xl top screen frame lens cover. They are really cheap and from the youtube videos ive seen are easy to replace. Also once you do get it replaced also pick up a screen protector for it!

    I actually already have a screen protector on my screen, i just have trouble telling if it's from the protector or the system itself.

    No, they are talking about a plastic sheet that covers the LCD that's physically built in to the 3DS, not your screen protector. Notice the matting on the top screen, that's the plastic protector. If you look on the bottom, you can see the same thing with a better fit.
    What does this even mean? The dude had a legitimate question and didn't ask for anything close to that impossible. He just wanted opinions on whether or not it could be fixed. Be gone.
