    I recently got some silicone on my screen and wanted to get it off before it dried since its REALLY difficult to do after. Without really thinking about it I used some finger nail polish remover, basically acetone, which seemed to work. The problem is, I am fairly sure that my oleophopic layer is also completely gone now. Anyone know if Nokia can fix this or if there is a way I can fix it myself?

    You cannot recoat the screen. This process is done during production and is not reproducible at home or in some shop.

    Actually, you CAN re-coat the screen. The oleophobic layer tends to wear off overtime, even if you didn't use the nail polish remover.

    Here's the instruction to do it:

    CleanSeal Liquid Screen Cleaning and Protection - 50ml

    Description

    Liquid layer nanotechnology designed by the military
    CleanSeal heralds the next development of screen protection. Liquid-based, CleanSeal creates a nanotechnology barrier on your mobile device in order to protect against fingerprints, smudges and bacteria. CleanSeal was originally developed by the military for cleaning and sealing Tiger attack helicopter windscreens
    Ideal for use with touchscreens on phones, tablets and even glasses
    CleanSeal screen protection solution is ideal for use with any kind of screen including PC monitors, laptops, tablets and smartphones. It helps to make touchscreens easier to use and clean by removing dirt and creating a protective barrier. CleanSeal solution can also be effective for use with glasses, sunglasses or goggles to reduce fingerprint smudging and increase water-resistance.
    Cleans and protects screens from fingerprints, bacteria and grease
    By applying CleanSeal to your device not only does the product remove dirt rather than dissolving it but the particles of dirt adhering to the surface are easier to remove thanks to the barrier effect. CleanSeal is anti-bacterial and hydrophobic which means that it prevents bacteria build up on your screen as well as repelling water.
    Furthermore, with CleanSeal applied your screen will pick up less fingerprints and can be wiped clear dust and grime build up.

    Thanks guys. The first one looks like a better option to try first as the second one says it only lasts a few days per application.
