Safe way to remove scratches from LCD screen?

    I have a fujitsu lifebook that has a clear plastic panel that protects
    the LCD.
    It seems to easily scratch. I used the wet/dry LCD cleaner packets.
    However they don't do much to help the problem.
    Is there a solution to effectively and safely remove marks/scratches
    on the plastic panels that covers LCD screens on today's laptops?
    thanks

    For plastic I would be tempted to try Brasso or Silvo liquid metal
    polish..! Use a very soft cloth and rub in a circular motion over the
    entire screen it can be done with Duraglit or Sivaglit this is a metal
    wadding but the liquid form is best - I can not comment on other brands,
    if in doubt try on some spare plastic.

    There are no doubt many rebuffing kit's specially for this purpose -
    this be may is your best option.

    For glass, I got deep marks out of glass TV xcreens with Chemico... a
    grinding paste that you use on car pistons, you just gotta rub and rub,
    glass is harder and takes longer.

    ... no genie come out but your knackered afterwards I can tell ya'. The
    secret no matter glass or plastic is to use a small circular motion,
    obviously you need to conentrate on the scratched area as well as the
    entire screen... don't want it concaved do we like Hubbles lens.

    I do believe there is some special stuff that you can fill the
    scratches with up but I can not comment nor tried any of these.

    Why not take it to an optician.... WHAT...!!!!
    Well, you see glasses are always getting scratched and specticles can
    be glass or plastic..

    ...you'll find some giving naughty gestures, some may appear friendly
    and yet one of them just might be friendly... not too friendly mind.

    *You do need to be careful*... it may be coated with an antiglare
    coating or even a scratch resistant coating - just like they use on
    specticles.

    So inspite of making a specticle of myself, gotta admit.. a method in
    my madness though :)

    There's a line of plastic polish called Novus - they have two or three
    products that remove scractches and polish up the plastic afterwards. You
    might find it in some hobby shops that cater to R/C car builders and such.

    It works great on general purpose plastics, but I've never used it on
    anything critical. It did, however, do a great job on a scratch on a car's
    windshield.

    Was your car's windshield made of plastic? Or does this product work too
    on glass?
