How do I get sperglue off the display?

Many moons ago the window on my gameboy fell out so I refitted it using superglue but I must have got some on the actual lcd display itself.

I'm now trying to remove this glue, I have tried IPA, sticky stuff remover and nail polish remover.

Is there any way to remove this glue or do I need to find a new display?

If I need a new display, where can I get one?

As mentioned in the comments listed under the video, the best bet to get a screen is find a broken unit that has a good screen.

As for removing the superglue. Was the nail polish remover you used acetone or non acetone based? Acetone is best for removing superglue as the non acetone based nail polish remover doesn't work so well.

The other sure way to remove superglue is not recommended around electronics ever. It involves water, covering with damp cloths and clingwrap for 3-4 hours, peeling it off as it softens. Definitely a no - no.
