If those scratches are on the LCD it is only cosmetic, it won't affect the picture quality. Basically there isn't anything you can do to fix that short of having the LCD itself replaced. Just live with the scratches :roll:

you can put a writeright or some type of screen protetor to avoid scratching it anymore. plus if they are small scratches you wont notice them once the writeright is on it.

Metal polish such as brasso works really well. Can be used on cds too. Very low tech but does the job. I'm thinking of selling kits with polishing instructions and make a fortune.

reminds me something
long ago , the watch repair shops used to polish scratched watches glass, and it came out like new :)

Don't use any abrasive like Brasso on any screen that has an AR (anti-reflective) coating or it will be history.

Agreed. Don't use a cutting polish on an anti-glare coating. Most screens are plain hard plastic though. Best thing is to protect from new.

Hi Dubais Girl__

Here is something else you can try presuming scratches on are the LCD.

Find an LCD protector and apply it.

It may "mask" the scratches :)

If most digital cameras are like mine it is most likely that what got scratched was just a plastic window on top of the LCD itself. The anti-glare coating is not in that window, so using polisher in the outer plastic window is ok. But before applying the polish, make sure this is the case.

I have used CD polish in one of those cheap Casio watches and it came out like new. Even deep scratches seemed to disappear.

I am a TV repair tech, and often run into scratched CRTs-haven't found anything that is useful in minimizing or eliminating them. It sounds like what you folks are discussing might do the trick for me. But I never heard of CD polish? I assume its used to clean up scratches that cause problems reading data from the CD; where could I get some of that? The brasso should work also, where might I find that... Thanks for anyones help here
