    So I put a screenprotector on the bottom screen of my DS, because I was going to replay Zelda DS, and I knew from the last time I played that that game uses and may even damage your touchscreen.
    It's a regular screenprotector, from the brand 'GBooster'

    It works fine, but I've played Zelda for a few hours now, and the screen protector has alot of scratches on it already. I'm wondering how I could fix this, or how I could possible remove the screen protector, without damaging my touch screen.

    Tnx in adv!

    most screen protectors can be removed simply by using your thumbnail under an edge and lifting them off (however, you will probably ruin the screen protector in the process of removing it).

    in the event that a sticky residue remains on the touch screen (the glue from the screen protector), you will need to clean that off with something like a small amount of alcohol applied to a soft, lint-free cloth.

    genuine hori screen protectors can be easily lifted off with a piece of scotch tape.

    most screen protectors will just come off, you just have to get a corner up and start from there. I've never heard of 'GBooster' before, but I hope it isn't a sticker type screen protector (shouldn't be unless it is a really cheap POS) you may wish to look into www.zagg.com I use them on my DSL GBM and my PDA nothing like using your keys as a stylus [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Those are fakes, but some people say "SOME" fakes work fine/well for them. The legit ones are marked Genuine or something on the page.

    I don't want recommendations of screen protectors, I want info on how to remove them!
    Tnx to thieves and nekkutta for the info, any other info?

    And I applied it by just getting a plastic off and then applying the screen protector to the touch screen by pressing it on the touch screen.

    take some very thin paper and work the corner of the paper under the corner of the screen protector. it will separate and then you can slide in more of the paper till you can grab the protector with your fingers.

    i used origami paper. the Ad paper that comes with the newspaper works well too. i've done it lots of times because i have like 8 nephews.

    Tnx nando for that great description!
    Does it damages the original touchscreen? I don't think so, but I want to be sure.

    I'll remove the screen protector when I've scratched it so much that I can't look at the touch screen anymore [​IMG]

    Just use a piece of sticky tape near the edge somewhere and when you lift it off the screen protector comes up with it. might take a couple of goes but doesn't cause any damage and once you get the edge up the rest is easy to remove.
