    Hello
    I have a scratched touch screen and was wondering if it was possible to get a new one r use a screen protector as a smooth surface over the screen? And while we're at it where can i find a new stylus pen(nice and soft holding would be nice [​IMG] ) And now to the little picky problem, if theres any websites the sell this i want to pay with a bill, not with a bank card(a bill follows the stuff i buy)

    Plz reply if you can help [​IMG]

    I'm about 99.9% sure that no-where on the internet will let you Post-pay (pay after) for your items. This is the internet! The risk of fraud and all that would be too high to be practical. Also using credit is faster [​IMG]

    About your screen, buying a screen protector will not help, as the screen protector is completely clear so you will see the scratches straight through it.

    You can purchase a replacement touch screen from DX who are really reliable, and many people will vouch for them.

    You can get it from http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3245 and the price is quite reasonable.

    Be warned though that the touch screen will require DS surgery to replace, and you will need a tri-wing screwdriver.

    If your order from DX, might as well get the Tri wing screwdriver there

    If that scratches aren't gouges, you can get a scratch remover kit for the DS. You can find more information on it in the link I posted above. Its a bit safer than replacing the current touch screen. You can practically make the screen look brand new using the scratch remover kit and a good screen protector over it. Though results may vary.

    Well then if you don't care how the screen looks, then a screen protector would probably smooth it out, so long as the surface is reasonably smooth.
