Have got an HTC Touch HD and the screen is scratched to hell, any recommendations of anything that can remove the scratches without damaging the touch screen?

Sadly I was given it in this state, if I'd had it from new I would have fitted a screen protector

I've used stuff like displex before on ipods etc, just not sure if it's safe on a touch screen

the first is an outer screen.

im sure this outer screen can be removed.
the outer screen is what catches the scratches and fingerprints etc.
shouldnt cost too much i wouldnt think

+1, brasso is not only cheaper, but much better than Displex. Displex is just expensive and not worth it.

Nail polish remover (acetone) will damage it so don't use that (maybe a dluted solution will work?), T-Cut *may* work, but thats designed to take a layer of paint of a car to make it look like new.

i've used brasso and it's works - although you have to keep at it for quite some time.

Thanks, repped you all

Have got some Silvo wadding, will that work the same or is the liquid better? Just looked on ebay can get a complete screen & digitiser for £20 if all else fails...

works on watch lenses as well, will take out any scratches in plastic finishes without damage as it is a fine abrasive...

Wadding no good, the liquid is an abrasive which is how it works...:thumbsup:

Had a quick crack with some Silvo, seems to be doing the job made a good start, I think with a little elbow grease it should come up a treat... Might have a crack with the polishing disk on my Dremel :w00t:

if you polish in line with the scratches it seems to knock the edges of the scratch and they blend in quite quickly...:thumbsup:

Cheers mate, obvious advice but cant think of this at the time you are actually doing it.

I mention it because I told a guy at work about it years ago to get scatches out of his watch glass and when he told me it was taking forever I found that he was using the old circular motion as if he was french polishing!......:-D
