Fortunatly you have several options still.

  1. Contact Nintendo via their website and try to locate a repair centre near you, or they may be able to get it sent off to be fixed.
  2. Look on eBay, there are lots of these being broken by small children and you could salvage a screen from one of those.
  3. You can find places that specialise in console repairs that can do the job for you also.
The good news for you is it's not the actual screen that is damaged. Threre is a touchpad that sits ontop of the screen that you are really pressing on, so you may even be able to find just the touchscreen and replace the one you have.
The only bad thing about the repair is I cannot advise you to try it yourself unless you are very electronically minded. There are bits inside that are extremely sensitive and can snap with the slightest amount of pressure.

Hope that helps you along the way =)

Is HTC HD 7 screen scratch proof or I have to use a screen protector .


Nothing is scratch proof, a screen protector is always a good idea, because if it gets scratched,it is easily replaced. An actual screen isn't.

My screen on my mobile phone is scratched quite alot. Can I replace the screen and get a suitable cover to prevent this happening again.


Hi,
Once the screen is scratched there is no easy or affordable way to replace it...the best thing to do is to install a plastic screen protector as soon as you buy a new phone... they cost a few bucks, but are well worth the price...
Many popular phones have screen protectors made in exactly the right size for the phone...but there also are generic protectors that you can easily cut to fit any phone...

Be very careful and patient when installing the screen protector so that you do not get bubbles under the plastic...have a small piece of plastic or a Popsicle stick handy to smooth out the protector as you install it.

My touchscreen on my new sony tx7 camera got scratched in my handbag, and the indent is interfering with anything i try to do...is there anything i can do? is it possible to replace the screen?


Hi,

I'm sorry to hear that the new DSC-TX7 Camera screen got scratched. You can get the screen replaced with the help of a service technician. Changing the LCD screen of the Camera is bit expensive. Contact the Service Technician to check if the screen requires a replacement or the entire LCD screen. I suggest you to use a screen protector (scratch guard) which is available with the SonyStore. This will help you in avaoiding scratches on the screen.

Scratch in sreen


By the looks of that picture, it's hard for me to believe that the scratch is not on the outside of the protective plexiglass screen. However, you can remove the protective screen w/o negative effect of the picture. In fact, it will probably reduce the glare from light on the screen. If, in fact, the scratch is still seen w/o the protective screen installed, then it is the lenticular screen that is scratched.
The lenticular screen is the one with the vertical grooves from top to bottom in it. The fresnal is the back screen that appears to have been lathed in a circular pattern.

Scratched bottom screen


If you look on the web, you can find a product that will restore the screen to its origional look by reducing and filling the scratches. Then, get another screen protector.

The bottom screen has scratches all over


It may not be what you think.
Check it closely there could be a screen protector on it that just peels away and you apply a new one to it.
When you first buy a DS it comes with a set to apply straight away.

These are easy to get anywhere they sell Nintendo's.

When you apply the screen protector, try to flatten it out with a CC as you apply it.
