Question about Computers & Internet
Is there anything i can do to repair my scratches donne by my stupid cat. They don't look deep and i can bearly feel them with my finger tips.
Just in case it can't be fixed, can it be repaired without changing whole screen itself.
The eraser method is even better than I first thought.
I acquired my first scratch some weeks back, tried the eraser method, and was quite pleased with the results, as my scratch was approx. 80% less visible, a faint grey line visible only on very light or dark coloured backgrounds, instead of the glaring black line it was at first.
Today my monitor toppled again (I really must tether the damn thing to something next time) creating - gulp - a new and even larger scratch. Oh, no... But whodathunk I'd end up happy I got the 2nd scratch? Oddly, I am happy, 'cause I took the opportunity to lay the monitor flat, take my white eraser again , and really go to town rubbing both new & old scratches. Lo & behold, both scratches appear to be now virtually 100% invisible or gone. My 2-scratch monitor is better now than it was as a one scratch one! I'm now convinced it's partly, largely, or completely due to the heat from friction of rubbing the eraser across the scratch, plus pressure applied, that does the trick. The heat must soften the plastic surface making it malleable, and the pressure of rubbing smooths out the jagged scratch edges, making the scratches disappear.
-So, if at first your eraser doesn't completely eliminate your scratch, try, try again! Keep working on it - harder!faster! And with luck, you'll get results like mine: complete elimination of two ugly scratches!

After almost having a heart attack when I discovered a big scratch(8-9") and little dent mark, left by a pen, created by my 3 years old daughter on my 24" LCD DELL monitor. I decided to go and google a solution and to tell you the truth most solution are very scary. From chemicals to Rain x to scratch off with a blade. I decided to try on my own an eraser from a brand new pencil. Very softly and without putting hardly any pressure at all, using a back and forward motion try to work your way to erase the mark and belive it or not it made the scratch and dent disappeared then using a microfiber cloth, the type to clean eye glasses I finish cleaning the screen.Leaving no blemishes whatsoever I hope this is helpful for somebody. note: an old eraser may be hard and create abrassion.

The simple answer No.
There are those who will say just put vasoline onto the screen and fill in the scratches.
This "sort of" works, but then causes an even bigger problem, dust sticks to vasoline rather well.
If/when you get your next screen, you could either get a protective layer that sits on the original, or even better get a bit of glass that will cover the screen. A local glazier will be able to cut one exact size.
