    Hi All,

    I have a tiny scratch on my screen that popped up out of nowhere. It's not very noticeable but it bugs me knowing it's there. Does anyone know of a way to remove scratches that does not involve toothpaste or any other gritty substance (essentially removing layers of the screen)?

    It's kind of like glasses, once you scratch them, they're scratched.

    I would try some 1500 wet and dry (to remove the scratch), then once it's out, use a polishing compound - preferably at least 3000 grade. . .

    . . . Should do the trick. :)

    EDIT: cotton buds are your friend (applying polish).

    I don't think he wants to use anything abrasive.

    It really depends on what degree. Without the use of anything abrasive, you wont get the scratch out. This comes from someone who used to build/maintain/repair powerboats and luxury yachts. :)

    wipe a few drops of olive oil over your screen, and leave it there.
