Most auto supply stores carry plastic scratch remover. If you do not have gouges the product works well. If it is gouged you are out of luck. You also should buy LCD Screen Protectors and your future problems will be solved permenantly.

Yes. There is a product called "Brasso" and it does a great job. Also for more solutions,check recent threads on eham.net There was a guy with the same question as you. Good luck!:p

Yeah, I picked up some generic screen protectors from Wal-Mart in the cell phone section really cheap. You can cut them to fit with an exacto knife or scissors. I usually put one on all my gadgets (scanners included).

I've used aircraft Radome repair tape, much thicker than other screen protectors. I go to work tonight I'll post the part number/product info later.

I use Brasso also to remove scratches, I also work in metalurgy lab, we use 1micron diamond compuond to polish metal weld samples, it does a wonderful job polishing out scratches on plastic screens. Screen protectors are a must.
