  • how to remove scratches on a lcd

    Anyone know if it is possible to get scratches out of a soft touch tft monitor. Been doing a install in the car and court the screen with some sand paper.

    If you switch the touchpanel with a new one, the scratches will go away.

        digitalww, ebay, or the mp3car store for a short list.

        And it is really easy to replace. Look at some threads about how to take apart the monitor. It is really easy but be careful of the ribbon cables in the ZIP sockets.

            the panel should of been out of the bezel before you started fabricating it.

              You can sometimes get a fluid on ebay which is supposed to take away light scratches. Might be worth a try, unless you have gouged out a chunk of the monitor!!

              Just search for scratch repair on ebay!

                Something like Displex might help - I've seen it used for mobile phone displays, but it is an abrasive polishing compound, so I don't know if it will cause more of a problem on the touchscreen - ie it might improve the appearance, but might cause degradation of the touchscreen facility.

                      I tried displex it made it worse. It basically discolors the that part of the touch panel so it looks like there is a haze. Any one try anything else that they had luck with?

                        You can probably use a polish to remove the haze. I'm not sure which kind, though

                          you can polish an LCD... it's just plastic... bear in mind though that you'll likely abrade away any anti-glare coating that's on there... so plan to replace it or have the high-gloss glare machine of death.

                              Forget it, to polish it like that, you have to take it apart, which means you might as well get the touchscreen part, and make it easier on yourself!
