    Hey everybody,

    I recently bought a Nintendo 3DS unit for €10,- with a defective upper screen. My question to you guys: where is the best place to buy myself a cheap replacement screen?(I'd like it be somewhere in Europe for my own comfort.)

    Here are some [urlhttp://imgur.com/MBuzoXm,TbsRqpd]pictures[/url] of the unit itself. I believe my neighbour dropped it or so and the screen got into this state. I quite aware that replacing the upper screen is not an easy task since you need to tear down the complete unit to get to every ribboncable involved. :)

    Thanks!
