    Hi,

    I checked my brand new NDS lite in the white main menu screen, didn't find any dead pixels and applied the HORIs.
    Then I started Tetris DS and noticed 2 dead / stuck pixels.

    Next I dismounted the HORIs carefully with some tape and "stored" them on the Tetris DS case because I threw away
    the HORI carrier-sheets.

    My question now:

    How do I re-use the screen protectors when my new NDS arrives?
    Wash them with pure water, let 'em dry and mount them again?
    Or should I get new HORIs?

    Thanks for any opinions,

    Tek.

    IMO, just get some new ones dude. Save you some pain and hassle, but if you got them dosen't hurt to try.

    I did this, and it worked great:

    * Clean them with soap under warm water.
    * Shake of most of the water.
    * Use compressed air to blow away the rest of the water.

    That's all.

    I think the manual says not to use water. It suggests putting tape on the sticky side to get rid of dirt. I've tried this and it works very well.

    Since they're cheap, you could always buy new ones, but they can still be reused if you want. I had several failed attempts of trying to apply them and now they're on flawlessly. (Except at the top right of one of them where it was previously pressed onto the plastic)
