    $12 for a BROKEN 3DS XL - Let's Fix It - Broken Top Screen - This 3DS XL was one I saved from the lot of handhelds I purchased a while back. In this video I'm replacing the broken top screen and also checking to make sure everything else works correctly. The replacement screen cost about $25 and took quite a bit of work to replace since it's necessary to remove most of the components in the lower half in order to remove the top screen. I got it replaced though and everything tested and cleaned up.

    About This Video: I purchased this 3DS XL in a lot for about $12 but waited to fix it because it needs the top screen replaced which is a fairly difficulty repair to do. Now it's time to get it fixed and I'm taking you through the steps of getting everything taken apart and repaired.

i've personally replaced the shell housing of a New 3DS XL and DSI XL, the hardest part isn't to take the ribbon cables out of the hinge, the hardest part is to pull them again through that metallic part on the hinge, not only that they actually have to be on a very specific order which makes it even more annoying... i originally planned on replacing housing shells of two New 3DS XL's and two DSI XL's, but after experiencing how annoying it is i've given up on changing the shells on the other two systems lol

Hey there Tronixfix I just wanted to let you know that the memory card that you said was free actually is a part of the 3ds. This is very strange but most of the functionality requires an adapter card. I personally own nearly all the Nintendo consoles that they have made so I’m very experienced. Nintendo also includes a small sd card with all their consoles when you buy a 3ds. Just wanted to let you know this. If I bought this, I would be sad to have a 3ds with most of its features disabled because there is no sd card inserted
