    acrylic scratch remover on our screen?

    Anyone ever thought of using an acrylic (or any kind) of scratch remover to remove fine scratches on the screens? Are there any special coats on the screen that will mess up by doing this?

    How does it apply to the surface? Wouldn't you have fine brush strokes to look at from then on?

    I don't have any knowledge on the chemical being applied, however, I know the touchscreen is very sensitive and I'd think there could be a possibility of stripping the sensors, I don't think I would risk that with a 600 dollar phone.

    Scratch remover is normally a very fine grid sand paper, but have special compound buffer to make the scratches disappear.

    Displex

    ages ago I had bought a (heavily) used clie with a few deep scratches.

    tried a product called displex, and was thrilled. wasn't by any means perfect...but was noticably and significantly better than it was originally.

    I use Boxwave's ClearVue screen protectors on my 6600, and don't have to worry about scratches. It takes care of the screen.

    Using a good quality screen protector will also hide many scratches on a screen - or at least minimize them so they don't look so bad.

    I'd be apprehensive about using anything abrasive on the display since you're digging into a membrane. I have, on rare occasions, used Zaino Brother's plastic polish on a touch screen. The abrasive in Zaino is very mild and it has a polish in it that fills in scratches.
