$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.
