i've just bought an gameboy for like $ 10, it's totally functional, but the dude who had it did this with a sharpie. i tried to clean it but it doesn't come. out any experience like this?

Unscrew it

Dip the case in Oxyclean combined with Lemon Juice and Ketchup

Let it sit in the mixture for 24 hours

Proceed to scrub with the mixture

Acetone will get that stuff right off and leave the plastic as grey as the day it was opened OP.

>> No.2688936

just buy a replacement case off amazon. you may even find a cool color.

Grandma or not that shit works great

Draw over the sharpie with dry erase marker, and while the dry erase marker is still fresh on the gameboy, wipe it off. Seriously, it works.

I happened upon this method myself back in school. Works a charm.

Has OP tries White Spirit?

whoa, is that the ultra rare japanese jet black edition gameman?

Mineral oil. You can get it from a hardware store in the paint section.

>> No.2689543

This is the best answer.

I can't tell you how many names and scribbles I've removed from carts with this method.

>> No.2689719

looks like you've got no choice left but to steam-punk that GameBoy now...



>> No.2689731

The steampunk gameboy is incredibly stupid. How do you even lay that?

However, if OP can't get the sharpie off cleanly, even with a dry erase marker, this may be a time when you could justify a casemod. As long as it's something tasteful.

>> No.2690891

Spray it with AXE or LYNX

It should take it off.

Do you live in North Carolina? I did that to my brother's gameboy as a kid before we gave it to a goodwill.

>> No.2690943


God, shut the fuck up you entitled piece of shit. He obviously was stupid enough to buy a Gameboy that was sharpie'd in. You're the reason the circlejerk board is shit because none of you faggots can handle banter.

a 10$ entirely functional Game Boy that just needs a bit of care, that's not so bad.

Don't you like taking care of old gear? It's like saving a injured puppy.

>> No.2691371

Just Oxyclean should work.
Dunno why you'd want to leave it sticky with corn syrup and smelling of vinegar afterwards.

>> No.2692106

I have a gameboy advance from a yard sale that looks like colored the front using pink nail polish. It's strange but it doesn't really bother me, I only bought it because of what they bundled it with.
