How to Clean your Nintendo 3DS XL Galaxy Edition Screen

If you’re a proud owner of a Nintendo 3DS XL Galaxy Edition, you know how amazing the device looks on the outside. However, as you probably know, what’s on the inside matters more. In this blog post, we will guide you through on how to deep clean the 3DS screen, take it apart, clean it, and then reassemble it.

Robert, our resident expert, will lead through this guide. He’s passionate about polishing up and cleaning devices, so you can be sure he’ll make your 3DS XL Galaxy Edition look as new as possible.

First, Robert takes us through the tear-down process. The motherboard was in good shape, but the case and buttons were sticky, so he figured something had been spilled inside. He then removes the cables, which had accumulated some nasty stuff, and carefully cleans most of the parts.

The touch screen wasn’t too dirty, but the double-sided tape was worn out, so he replaces it. While trying to remove the top screen, he had to yank one of the pins with pliers, which unfortunately tore the ribbon cable that was attached to the screen. Robert then had to replace it.

To clean the screen, Robert uses a Q-tip with a tiny bit of laundry soap to remove the dirt and grime. He’s careful not to push too hard and cause scratches. He then removes the screen to make it easier to work with and rolls the ribbon cables into a tight ball.

He then replaces all the parts, making sure he doesn’t make any mistakes. Robert notes that mistakes happen, and it’s okay. He recommends using laundry soap to soak the parts, but it’s not necessary.

After cleaning, the device looked much better, and the grime was gone. The screen had a small white speck on the inside but still looked amazing. Robert then tests the device, and it works perfectly.

In conclusion, cleaning your Nintendo 3DS XL Galaxy Edition is easy if you have the right tools and follow the right steps. We hope this guide has been helpful and that your device looks and functions like new.
