Default Removal of scratches

Please Login to Remove!

Noticing small scratches starting to appear on 8700 screen. For all of you who have had experience with scratch removal techniques I am curious. Which has been the best and most effective. Removing the scratches, not leaving screen hazy, etc...

Thanks and I look forward to your replies.

Not too sure how to remove them (although I have heard of some plastic abrasive that can take them off) I would get some screen guards. I have the invisible shield and it is fantastic.

EDIT:

I just read a post where a user was talking about removing scratches.

Thanls for the reply.

Well, there is iPod polish. And at one time, Brasso was used to remove scratches from plastic watch crystals. I haven't tried it on my 8700C yet, but as I have a scratch I think I will tonight and let you know...

A long time ago someone posted a good solution for removing scratches but I just can't seem to find that post/thread. I need to remove scratches also, they are really starting to bug me.

Thanks lgreenberg for the introduction to Displex. I too had some minor scratches. I ordered Displex on the web and it arrived in 5 days. All it took was a few drops. I rubbed the screen with a cotton cloth for a few minutes and my screen now looks like new. This is a wonderful suggestion. Thank you.

Cool, glad it worked out for you.

Now my next piece of advice.........................

Invest in a screen protector.

Hey Pacman66. Care to fill us in on who you ordered the Displix from. Also, did the Displix leave your screen hazy at all after applying it to the 8700 screen.

Thanks and I look forward to your reply.

I got them at http://www.calcellular.com/uni-dp-1.html
No, it does not leave my screen hazy at all. My only complaint is that shipping is almost as costly as the product itself, but I can't find any retail outlet that carries the product. Good luck.

Default Displex rocks

I had a deep scratch that I thought was permanent.........along with other minor scratches. That stuff made it look like new. Well worth it. Search for blackberry accessories sites to find the cheapest offer. You can also find it on ebay.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I used Displex for the first time last weekend, and I have to tell everyone how impressed I am with this product. I had several shallow scratches and one fairly deep one on the display of my 7100t. After a couple of applications, the screen looks "out of box" new.

I have ordered protectors from Screen Patronus to keep it looking fresh!
