    Hi All,

    Well, have just about completed my first mod, put batteries in to test and the screen looks jaw droppingly awesome! However, I made a schoolboy error in putting it together when I got a fingerprint on the screen :( Not really noticeable at all when playing but I know it is there so that bugs me enough. Any way of cleaning it off? Don't want to rub it with microfibre cloth in case that aint the thing to do.

    Please help!

    Scotch tape can help, if not completely eliminate the mark. Peel a few strips off of the print, and they'll take some of the oil with them. Just be careful not to touch the glass again.

    Indeed! Lesson learned. I managed to get it off by using my old original gba screen as a test. Put a big thumb print on it then rubbed it with my microfibre. Got rid of it no bother so done the same with the 101 screen and thumbprint gone, no harm done. Phew!
