    Hello!
    I've bought an used O3DS(Classic),some housing scratches here and there,don't really care about those.

    But,holy crap,the right side of the top-screen is really marked by the bottom one(weirdly,the left side is almost unnoticeable).
    I knew this were a problem,but,damn,looks like someone drew a f*cking white line in there.
    Couldn't the previous owner use a screen protector or something?Sigh.

    Any workarounds?
    I mean,would applying an Screen protector make it less noticeable or something?(Even if it is stupid as hell applying a protector TO COVER scratches lol)

    Already tried cleaning with normal methods and it still ass.

    Thanks!

    (First thread here BTW,hope I don't mess up the sections and stuff).

    Sadly,I think retrning it is out of question...
    But I'll see about the frontplate if it keeps annoying me(the thing is,importing stuff to Brazil lately is kinda expensive).

    Sorry I'm on mobile so I couldn't see where you are from. You could try buying a broken 3ds and swapping the lenses. I believe they are made out plastic so maybe a compound for getting rid of plastic scratches would work too.

    It is not too hard swapping the lens with a new one. The issue would be to do it in as close to a clean room as possible as dust will get on the lcd while swapping it.

    Good to know that changing the front isn't that hard.
    I'll try looking for one.

    (Thanks much both of you!)
