    Hello, so this is a DS lite that I got recently and the console is almost at perfect condition, except for these few scratches at the back. Probably someone opened it before and while trying to remove the rubber feet at the back hit the shell of the console leaving these white marks.
    I already changed the rubber feet as they were also damaged but these scratches remain, and to be honest it's driving me crazy.
    Is there anything I can do to make this less noticeable? Maybe polishing it a little somehow ?
    The scratches turned white so it's pretty noticeable, if they stayed red I wouldn't really mind the scratches as it wouldn't be much noticeable.

    What do you guys recommend me to do ? Please don't tell me to ignore it as my OCD is strong on this one and these sort of things drive me insane.
    Thanks.

    I'd really like to use it without any cases as I enjoy holding it without them. Yes I can't stop thinking about this crap, everytime I remember any DS game or console this comes to my mind, I really need to find a solution for it because it drives me crazy. I'll buy a case as a last resort if I don't find another method of fixing it. Hopefully someone who had the same problem before could lend me some advice on this.

    This is in the wrong section. It belongs in the Nintendo DS section.
    To answer the OP, your best bet is to get a protective case for the system.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    the previous owner definitely opened the console...

    well it's in the back you will only look at it if you want... my recommendation is suck it up...
    other than that, either a cover, or try to paint it...

    That's funny because a few days ago I actually tried very carefully painting the white things with a red painting pen that I actually had lying around, but the color doesn't stick to it.
    To explain it better, I painted it, waited for the next day and when i touched it the color disappeared again and went back to white. I guess it's because of the DS lite's plastic that doesn't let me paint it?
