    My friend bought me some screen protectors from Japan. I put them on my DS lite screen and now IT WON'T COME OFF!!! I've tried tape, my fingernail, and even something sharp (to the peril of my touch screen) and I SWEAR it's just not comng off!!! Please post your ideas, I need them NOW!!!

    or a pin or something sharp and solid to get under it.

    personally i use a little needle thingo with a curved tip at the end. it works a charm.

    but be realy careful not to scratch the screen if you're using something sharp and/or metal.

    Only if the post is pointless. My suggestion was serious.

    Wood is soft, and toothpicks are pointy. That makes them a good choice for prying up a screen protector.

    Yes. It's stuck firmly as anything!!! I'm freaking out [​IMG]
    Really? So should I just leave it on :S But Hori protectors aren't meant to be using adhesive so if I take it off it should be ok?

    Toothpick...I'll try. But there are no little edes sticking out that I can wedge it under. Same witht he pointy stuff [​IMG] And I don't want to kill my touch screen [​IMG]

    electronicsashimi I hope Im not screwed..I'm just so worried!!! :'( More help pleaaaaseeee, if you have any more ideas please yell out!

    Try heating it gently with a hair dryer. Then peel it off carefully with a toothpick.

    If you're using original Hori, it should leaves about 2mm gaps unprotected on your touchscreen, giving it just enough space to peel it off. I personally would use some thin plastic that is enough to slide under the protector skin and peel it off, it works.

    And, if your Hori skin has a perfect fit on the touchscreen, you've got a fake one, good luck taking it off.

    Hair dryer? won't that warp the screen? :S
    Toothpick by itself not working, no where to wedge it under and it seems that the screen protector is stuck on with super glue [​IMG]

    Yes there is a gap around the edges BUT it's stuck so firmly on that I can't even lift it!!! And I could do that with my old fake one TT_TT I have the worst luck with screen protectors [​IMG]

    saturnplanet5: THANK YOU! YOU ARE A GODSEND!!! [​IMG] You have fixed my dilemma. I used the hairdryer, it did nothing but make my ds warm (or so I thought) then I used a metal pointy thing and picked at it a bit and it came off! Thank you so much!!!
    I think I might have sporked my screen a but with the metal thing but who cares, it's in the corner anyway [​IMG]
    After I put it back a different one back on and put the other on a different DS, I couldn't get it off again. But now I know how to fix it, so it's all good! Thanks so much!
    Yay for the fellow aussie!
