I feel sick. I've hardly got to watch it.

My dogs were wrestling around the other day and knocked over a suitcase that my son had just brought back from a trip. The handle was up and scuffed across the lower 10 inches or so of the screen.

It looks like a plastic-on-plastic scuff, barely feelable by fingertip. The beginning of it rubbed off with slight pressure and some of the rest came off slightly, but not all the way.

Anyone know about a scratch remover for plastic big screens? I priced a new screen (Toshiba) and they want close to $250!

Novus 3 Plastic Polish

Works great on Lexan headlight lenses. A bit tedious, but can produce very good results.

Im not sure what can get that off. Someone had to go and start touching my new LCD the day I got it, so it has a mark now.

I'd try McGuires Plastic Polish. It will polish out most scraches in plastic, and is a lot cheaper than $250.00 for a new screen cover.

Do something with the dogs or it will just happen again. If you don't want to do anything with the dogs, then just leave the scratch, there will be more soon.

FWIW, I have used Brasso to remove scratches in plastic... watch crystals, the plastic windows in my Jeep, etc. Might be worth a try if as a last resort. Good luck, what a shitty development.
