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.

MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS JUST SCRATCHED MY SONY BRAVIA TV WITH A MAGNA DOODLE PEN. HOW CAN I GET RID OF THE SCRATCHES?

Clean the surface of the LCD screen with a barely damp cloth.
  • Step 2 Dry the screen with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Step 3 Rub a generous amount of petroleum jelly into the scratch using a cotton swab. The petroleum jelly should fill in the scratch and remain there.
  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • This scratch repair method is effective because of optical density. The optical density of petroleum jelly matches the plastic, LCD screen coating more closely than that of air.
  • To avoid future scratches or gouges, you might consider purchasing a LCD screen protector. These screen protectors are generally made of a thin, plastic film and affix to the screen without adhesives. Not only can they protect against scratches, but they also keep the screen free of dirt, oil and dust while simultaneously reducing glare.
  • When wiping the screen as described Step 4, avoid pressing too hard or you will inadvertently remove the petroleum jelly from inside the scratch.
  • Using petroleum jelly to fill a scratch on your LCD screen could void your screen's warranty. If you are concerned about warranty issues, consult your user's manual for more information.

    Removal of protection screen mitsubishi ws55819 rear projection

    you will need to pull the bottom of the unit off, this is just a snap on speaker grille across the bottom... then you will remove the screws across the bottom of the grey frame holding the screen... un plug the 2 plugs going to the control panel buttons, lift UP then OUT and it will come off.. once off, lay face down on a blanket and you can remove the frame screws INSIDE to pull out the protective screen. I took mine off to stop all of the glare problems. Also, while you have the screen off, clean your mirror and lenses since they will be easily accessible.. windex will do the job well, just make sure not to leave a bunch of lint from paper towels!

    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.

    Screen is scratched on Nintendo DS lite.

    if it's the top screen, check out a product called "displex" - its very good at polishing out deep scratches on mobile phone / console screens.

    If its the bottom screen then I'm afraid you need to replace this:

    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.

    Scratched bottom

    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 =)

    Bottom screen scratches

    I think you can buy a polish kind of stuff at best buy or a store like it that fixes the scratchs. Ask a person for help though, I'm not 100 percent sure of it.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Tv screen scratches

    If this is the clear smooth screen, yes you can go to your local glass & paint store & have a new protective screen cut for that size. If this is the screen with thin lines etched in it from top to bottom..vertically is the Lenticular lens & no there is no way to repair, you must replace, with new or used. Go to ebay under projection tv parts see if you can locate someone having your size for sale & bid on it or email them to outright purchase it.

    Nec plasmasync 4200w 3 vertical lines one yellow two purple

    Sorry to tell you, it is not a scratch, but a bad cable connection from the driver IC's, connecting up the plasma screen to the drive board, or the drive IC for that section of the screen is defective. It is not a repair a user can do as there are no user replaceable parts inside this set. Your going to have to call NEC or an experienced Plasma repair shop.
