Quick-n-Bright should do the trick - the stuff is amazing. I use it
to clean my computer screen and being a smoker, the monitor builds
up a yellowish tar and this stuff cleans it up easy. It's also good
for just about anything else in the house too like water stains and
carpet stains (only if you get to it right away) . It can do more
stuff, it's an all-purpose cleaner but that's what I mainly use it
Be careful not to press too hard on the screen and let it sit for a
minute or two. Use a soft cloth like terry so it doesn't scratch it.
Repeat if needed. The only drawback is you have to mix the solution.
I would use the strongest strenght for the gum. If you can, try
putting scotch tap around the edge of the screen to keep the liquid
from leaking into the electronics. This probably will sound strange
but I would clean it upside down. Hold it at head level with the
screen facing downward. I'm not sure if that's really needed but it
might be better to error on the side of caution. It's non-toxic,
organic and biodegradable if you care about that stuff.

Actually I searched through this group, and found an advice about
using vaseline for cleanning gum. I used it, and much to my surprise,
it did wonders, so after just ten minutes of work the gameboy was like
new. I didn't believe it could be that simple :-)

That's good information. I never would have thought of vaseline.
