I'm pretty sure I'll get made fun of for this and get lots of laughs, but i need serious help. I wanted to look of an Xbox 360 Elite, but didn't want to void my warranty by taking it apart and painting it. Instead, i let a streak of genius show through and bought a huge freaking industrial sharpie and colored the whole thing black. It didn't really look too bad (especially in the dark, lol), but now i'm sick of it. I want ot off, but it has had much time to dry and be worn in. I have tried tons of stuff that takes it of, but just not enough of it. I have tried pretty much everything. Toothpaste, bleach, isopropal alcohol, multiple cleaning solutions, peroxide, paint thinner, baby oil, spray deodorant, and even things such as sandpaper and scraping. While the sandpaper and scraping worked, i don't want to scratch my Xbox all up, plus it doesn't take it ALL off and smudges what it doesn't take off. I had stickers on before the sharpie episode and took those off, so i also have big spots of white. Does anyone have SOMETHING that will work for me? There are two more things i know of that i haven't had a chance to try which are a Mr. Clean magic eraser and coloring it with a dry erase marker and wiping that off. PLEASE HELP!

Did any of those cleaning solutions affect the original paint?
Anything that will dissolve permanent marker ink will probably also affect the original paint, unless it's the plastic that's a certain colour.

Try acetone, but it might mess up the plastic.

EDIT: actually a lot of paint thinners are acetone based, so if that didn't work (which is odd) you're Phucked.

sperm.

I heard that the substance above is a cure for many cleaning problems... It also works wonders for painting a wall a beautiful off-white color.
I know now what I knew then, but I didn't know then what I know now

Go over it with a whiteboard marker, then wipe it off. Repeat until your Xbox is white again. Old school teacher's trick.

You may never get it perfect again because the surface isn't smooth, but you'll get it close at least. You may need a damp cloth to get all the whiteboard marker ink off, it'll take at least 3-5 tries, maybe more by the sound of it.

Well, that would require a funnel.

If you were able to get it off, then it wouldn't be permanent would it? And if you COULD get it off, then we'd be working on a way to sue the company for lying to ya.

Also stop tryna be a wigga, if your white, deal with it, dont try be black, it always turn out quite weird and no matter how hard you try, once you go black, theres no going back.

Use fine sand paper to remove the black, then use wet and dry paper to remove the scratches.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

Go over all the areas with a Dry Erase marker(s) and wipe away the area. Rinse and Repeat.
You're welcome.

Edit: You should have tried this before sandpaper

Just leave it alone before you cause anymore damage TS.


If that isn't an option there's always this.....

Then that's false advertising, because it can be easily taken off

I thought this was going to be a "I got drunk and passed out. Then my friends drew on me." thread.

And to TS. I wish i had the time to worry about something a meaningless as the appearance of an Xbox. Now if you passed out and your friends drew on you with a magic marker i could care a tad. Only cause that would of been funny.
