    Hey everyone new here, thought I'd ask here since I've stumbled across this site a few times and found it to be helpful. I'm looking to replace the touch screen on my 3ds as it's really scratched. Has anyone here had experience with this issue? thanks

    not sure if you will of already ordered the parts, but you can just replace the digitizer if the LCD is still working correctly, its much cheaper than replacing the whole thing

    replacing the screen/digitizer is pretty easy if your used to doing stuff like that.....one word of warning would be careful removing and re-inserting the top LCD ribbon cables, its much easier if you open the 3ds out so its lying flat as they will have more "give" to get them inserted properly so less chance of tearing them
