      What do you need to do that, and how?

      And is it easy to do that on a normal LCD screen?

        You need:

        T6 screwdriver
        Piece of polarizing film
        Scissors

        Pull off old film, put on new film in different direction.

          you can do without the T6... any small screwdriver will work... There are 4 black screws on the back to remove... then u unclip the silver bezel around the lcd... there are 4 tabs on the sides...

          i wouldnt recommend u do anything unless u get youself some alcohol wipes... the only way u can take all that glue off from lcd. You also need a really sharp thin xacto blade... so u can slowly slice the film free of the lcd glass... beware though, you can chip the lcd glass... its VERY thin...

                    I can't get this ******* thing to reverse!

                    I bought some of Arbys polorizing film, and I've followed the instructions and it still won't work! I've tried taking off the old film and putting in the new one by itself, no go, tried taking off the siler sticker putting in the new film behind the old one then the silver sticker, no go, even new film, old film then sticker, no go. This sucks, any help!?!

                      What do you mean by it doesn't work?

                      It's not black enough? Can't see the characters? LCD not working anymore?

                      Just fiddle around and rotate things until it works.

                            The LCD works and looks EXACTLY the same, I took the silver sticker off, along with the old film. Put the new film on and put it back together, still no reverse. I took it apart again and flipped it around, still didn't work. I took it apart again and put the silver sticker again and still didn't work. I took it apart again, took it apart put the new film, old film then sticker and still no go. Put the new film in FRONT of the lcd, no film and the clear cover can't see anything. Something doesn't seem right. I dunno I think it's just a user error.
