DS screen protectors

Is this place still alive?? If so, I'd be eternally grateful if anyone could help me with my slightly odd query.

The official Nintendo screen protectors were fantastic value for money. So good in fact, that they have protected my screens admirably since  2006. Now, alas, they have come to the end of their useful plasticy lives. There are loads of scratches and a couple of holes, which makes my gaming experience a bit more unpleaseant than in times past.

My question is, if I remove the protectors, will it be all sticky and gunky underneath? I don't want to buy a new console (I'm still perfectly happy with my DS Lite) but I'm afraid removing them will render it unplayable.

Can anyone help?

Just put your nail under and pull it up. You might want to wipe it off with a ever so sightly with a damp cloth and then just dry it off really well. It shouldnt leave a residue at all. Those were made to not leave one and Ive found that only leaving the device in a car in the hot hot Texas sun can seal it to the device. However, that heat usually also destroys the display too.

I never used screen protectors, but I did try some (I think they came with a case I got for my DS). If you had the same ones I did, they just stuck to the screen with static rather than actual glue of sorts, so it shouldn't leave any sort of residue.

nope, they don't leave any residue. i'm a lover of screen protectors & they basically stick with static. i just wipe the screen off with a cloth similar to the one i use for cleaning my glasses & it's all good again.

i've had a screen protector on my ds lite for several years and recently replaced them without a problem. didn't leave any residue. :)

Pretty much sums it up. :)

Even if you do find residue left on it, you can easily clean the screen with a paper towel and a tiny bit of lemon juice. Citric acid easily cleans out all of the finger smudges and dirt that people put on handheld consoles.
