You can try some to rub a little bit of toothpaste for about 5-10 minutes. The scratches should come off.

How do I fix a scratch on an LCD screen? Its not a small scratch. I can see a small white dot through it. Is it possible to fix? Is there a risk of radiation?

There is no risk of radiation through an LCD. Only blinding light that can give you a headache. (I tried using a CCFL as a desk lamp. Headache follows, and despite what people keep telling me, I don't think I look like was born at Chernobyl.) As for the scratch, you must first come to terms that your monitor will never again be perfect, and then decide what is the best course of action for yourself and your skills with the understanding that this will not be easy and it will take quite some time. Personally, this is what I would do. Use something to very carefully blot the bright spot, I would probably use a tiny bit of ink on the tip of a sharpened toothpick. (Apply at a bit of an angle parallel to the scratch to avoid pressure points and stray ink.) It is better to have small dark spot on the screen than a bright one. Next, turn off then unplug the monitor and lay it down as flat as possible. Then, with a very soft touch, clean the entire screen with a gentle sanitary wipe. No strong or abrasive cleaners. If t.p. is what you have than that is what you have. If the wipe is dry, put just enough water on it to make it just damp enough to clean the surface. Take a damp q-tip and dip it in some ash then brush off any rough particles. Gently rub the ashen q-tip along the scratch lengthwise using as little pressure as possible. Rubbing across the scratch may make things faster, but will make the blemish larger, trust me. Repeat with the ashen q-tip until you are satisfied that the edges of the scratch are no longer rough. Very carefully with a barely damp fresh wipe, remove the rubbing's from the screen. Here comes the hard part. What to use to help close the gap, and gloss the finish. Nothing that I have seen or tried is perfect. My fist choice would be to leave it and thank whoever you do or don't pray to that it still works. If this is not acceptable, then if possible, get or debo an anti-dust or anti-glare or privacy screen for the monitor. If this is not possible, but you have access to a water based clear acrylic pen with a satin finish, you could go with that. Do not use gloss or high gloss, shiny things attract attention. Whatever you use to cover the scratch, make sure it is water based, because the solvents in others will tarnish or melt the plastic overlay of the LCD. Another possibility is, if you know someone in the area who paints, perhaps you could get a little water based clear coat with a satin finish, and use a tiny bit of sponge to apply it to the screen. Using even a small brush will leave brush strokes, but if that is what you have, then that is what you have. Best of luck to you, I hope it works out. :)

I have screen protector on my HTC hd7 and I have small crack on the corner (vertical) right lower. Can be repair?


The screen of the hd7's is made using corning's gorilla glass. Technically but also simply put, it's made of a single sheet of glass, spreading along all the front side of the phone. Glass is being used since it's more resistant to scratches and is a good electrical insulator, a needed property in the making of capacitive type touchscreens.
If you have a crack, most probably the surface area was broken due to some mechanical shock. Like any piece of glass, once broken it can't be fixed, it doesn't work like fixing a scratch on a plastic cover by polishing it. In fact i recommend you to leave it like this and try to cover it with the screen protector. The surface on the glass layer contains a special compound of transparent conductive polymers used to register screen taps. Actually this is what you touch when using the screen. It's not recommended that you try to polish the screen because you can accidentally remove this layer.

So, again simply put and sorry to make it this way, the wisest thing would be to either try to live with it or change the digitizer layer (glass front cover) but the last option can prove to be a bit expensive. Again, sorry for not being able to provide a more nicer solution.

How do I safely clean a laptop screen

You should use a lint free cotton cloth. Lint is small bits of thread or fluff. Do not use a tissue paper as it can scratch the surface.

There is no need to use detergent, only mildly dip the cloth in water if screen has sticky substance on it. Make sure to wring excess water. Take care because water can drip and ruin the screen.

If you have accidentally put something that does not come off with water, then let me know what it is and I will direct you accordingly. Just don't use any detergent.

My flat screen is scratched how can I fix it

It is very difficult to polish the scratches out. If you apply too much pressure to the surface of the screen you will crack the glass surface and the LCD element, and you will then need to replace the LCD screen.

Which wire is my amp power wire on a kenwood kdc-x617

hey mate,

You will need to run independent power and ground wires for the amp, then run your RCA leads from your headunit to your amp, the trigger wire to turn your amp on and off with the headunit is the pink and black wire in the kenwood wiring harness...

Hope this helps
