    Its really bothering me. Yesterday, I had some lint stuck between the side of my screen and the casing. So, I took a piece of paper and I used it to pull the lint out...

    Now I've done this many times before... but its hot out, and this time the paper got stuck. I pulled it out, and now there is just white paper stuck between my screen and the casing about a centimeter long... its really bothering me.

    I can't think of anything small/sturdy enough to get inbetween there other than paper that is strong enough to get it out... I've tried literally everything. Do you guys have any other ideas?

    I use clear packing tape. It may be stiff and tacky enough to work for your situation.

    Good idea, I'll give it a shot when I can go pick some up, don't think I have any right now. I'll let you know how it works out.

    I usually just fold a sticky note and use the folded corner to scrape anything out.

    Heh, I thought I was the only one that did this. Endless supply of sticky notes at work. <cough>

    I'll give it a shot... the tape didn't work. The paper that got stuck in there is way too tough to be scraped out with the tape... I might just be stuck like this. :(

    Yeah, the sticky note isn't strong enough to get the paper thats already stuck in there out... I'd remove the case but I'm pretty sure the case wouldn't go back together.
