Introdução

My 2DS XL was disassembled at the time of writing this guide, because there was no guide here yet. However, everything pertinent to removing the top screen and replacing it are listed here.

  1. Before starting the disassembly, remove

    • There are many clips along the hinge of the case, so it is recommended to work your way along one short side and the two long sides before finishing the last short side.

    • Slide out the cylinder that holds the other side of the hinge together.

    • On my 2DS XL, I wiggled the top half of the case and the cylinder wiggled out enough to grab it with the tweezers.

  10. Finish sliding the ribbon cable through the hinge and free the red wifi wire, as well. The top part of the case is now free, and you are okay to set the rest of the 2DS XL aside for reassembly.

    • I apologize for the quality of the picture, but as you can see, the cable slides through a slot on the top case's hinge body. carefully slide the cable out of the slot and free the cable from the two pins holding it down to the case frame.

  11. Insert a spudger along the edge of the plastic plate on the top shell. Pry up gently until the glue releases. There is a large glue pad under this plate, but there is nothing else holding it on. After prying off the plate, there are four screws marked in the rings to release the back plate from the screen plate. Once the screws are removed, lift off the back plate to reveal the screen and plastic trim.

  12. Gently pry around the top edge of the case. As you can see, my case is cracked, but not as a result of this repair. This plastic is very thin, so do be careful working your way around the case. The front lens is plastic, but it is held to the frame with glue pads. Using multiple soft tools, work your way around the lens to free the lens and the screen from the frame bezel. You can now set aside the bezel for reassembly.

    • Be very mindful of the ribbon cable as it goes back through the hinge during reassembly, as it can be damaged very easily.

I think there is a missing step between step 5 and 6. I followed the instructions until step 5, but couldn’t figure out how to separate the top case from the bottom case. In step 6, you can see the top case has been separated from the bottom case. But no instruction is given on how to do that.

The hinge only has one component holding it together from coming apart. It is on the left hi he as you look at it like you're playing. The hinge component is a small barrel that resides inside the hinge. You have to open and close it while it is on its right side and try to grab with a pair of tweezers onto the edge of the barrel.

I can't be the only one who's having a lot of trouble trying to remove the first four tri screws…

Some gentle heat on the back plate may be useful to separate the glue on the top screen backing plate, but I did not use any. I just pried it up and gently pulled it away.

Are you referring to the screws on the bottom of the unit? Apparently another user stated that a Y00 screwdriver removed the back four tri screws easier for them.

Chris Julian -

Didn’t follow exactly how to disconnect the top section fully.
