    Hello guys, so my GBA SP screen was so dirty of dust that I tried to clean it.
    So I opened it up and cleaned the front screen, but since the dust was behind the screen I took off the screen protector and started cleaning the screen with some alcohol. Just a little bit of alcohol in a cloth, not too much.

    After that I turned on the SP and the screen had some few black stains which im not sure what it is.
    After cleaning with a dry cloth some of them went away but there''s still one and it's pretty annoying.
    I'm guessing the cloth was dirty and since it's a frontlit screen it's reflecting like it does with dust.

    I've been trying to clean it up but with no avail, what do you guus recommend cleaning the screen with ?
    Notice that I'm talking about the actual screen not the protective lens.

    Thank you. I will provite photos if needed.

    It sounds like the alcohol has got between the layers of the screen
