Hi, I have a problem on the screen of the Game Boy Advance SP, the model is AGS-001, The problem is that there are some small specks of dust inside the screen.

I would like to know if there is a way to move / clean those specks of dust without having to disassemble the screen, once in a Spanish-speaking forum I read that it could be done with the static of a balloon, but I don't know if it will be a good idea, and I can't think of another solution

Hope you can help me: C

Do you know whether the dust is inside the actual AGS-001 screen itself or just under the plastic screen cover? (i.e. the black "Game Boy Advance SP" part)
If it's just under the screen cover, all you'd have to do is remove the five screws around the screen and pull it off to clean the dust out

Since you have to take the plastic lense off to clean it anyway, you can add a glass lense instead of the original plastic one. Looks nice and is harder to scratch.

It really does look like the dust is under the lense and not in the actual screen, itself.

    only 22lbs total tho - how much can you really exercise with that?

    I'm a pretty weak guy and even I use 50lb on each side for dumbbell bench and 30lb for each arm with dumbbell curl

  • x65943 @ x65943:
    imo without at least a 30lbs dumbbell you won't get a lot of use out of em - and these max out at like 10lbs for each arm

    oh I see you actually get to pick which set you want - so you could buy the 88 lb one

    I'd rather just have my own equipment instead of not knowing whose sweaty balls were on it

    kenny I'm very concerned now that you may not be working out properly

    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym

    You aren't going to the right gym if you need to wear clothes

    Ball sweat drops down like normal sweat if your balls are always dry I'd recommend a doctor
