Removing LCD scuffs/scratches

    I've just recently put about a 1" wide and 2" long scuff/scratch on my Dell
    Inspiron 8500 LCD screen. I've tried removing it with a mixture of alcohol
    and water, but to no avail.

    I searched around on the Internet and found some information about possibly
    using Novus #2 plastic polish or some similar products, but I wanted to get
    some opinions before I attempt this myself. The thing I'm worried about is
    that there appears to be a thin film/cover over the LCD. I think this is
    what is actually scratched, so I'm not sure if some type of plastic polish
    might actually make it worse.

    Does anyone have any experience or opinions on this? I appreciate your time
    and input.

    Hi Mike,
    I asked this same question last month and received the alcohol reco and a
    suggestion to try the product listed here
    As yet, I tried neither. Let us know if you do and if it works acceptably.

    Plus, novus would require way more elbow grease than you would want to apply
    to an LCD screen. I use it to polish vintage fountain pens because it's so
    gentle, put you would need to press and rub hard.

    It appears by your suggestions that I should probably just deal with it.
    Anyway, thanks for the info.
