Hello godom, It will depend on how bad is the scratch. For deeper scratches there isn't no fix. For smaller ones there is a specially made scrach fixing paste or something like this, that may be found in some computer stores or electronic/phone service centers. PLEASE NOTE ! Your display is a touchscreen type. The top part of your display - the one you touch, is not made of glass or plastic but a kind of polymer acrilic or similar based materials. Most scrach fixes work and are designed for plastic or glass surfaces. Please instruct or remind this to the person that will attempt the fix. Otherwise it can damage the touchscreen or reduce it's brightness or sharpness. Hope this helps.

Yes, I purchased a refurb Pixel 3a phone that had a DEEP scratch in the Gorilla Glass.

Putting a new tempered glass screen protector did not hide the scratch and actually seemed to make it worse as it shows up like a white line shaped air bubble under the protector.

However, by dipping a toothpick in vegetable oil and using it to fill the scratch with a little oil and then putting on the tempered glass screen protector, the scratch literally DISAPPEARED. When you first put the protector on top of the oil, you will see a visible a border between where the oil is being dispersed across the screen and where it is not, but if you press on it like you would to remove air bubbles and then let it settle for about 20 minutes, the scratch disappears without any indication of the oil underneath.

You may want to experiment with an old glass screen protector to get the hang of it before putting on the final one.

I have not seen this remedy anywhere else on the Internet, but it works! I took inspiration from various DIY solutions that talk about using vegetable oil to make the white edge that sometimes appear around the edge of tempered glass protectors on iPhones disappear. That remedy didn't work so well, but works great for this application.

I have scratched the lens of Tom ford Fiona sunglasses. How can it be fixed

You can fixed your scratched lenses by Simply applying a small amount of non-abrasive toothpaste to some cotton wool and slowly buff away the scratch. Toothpaste is a quick and easy hack for minor scratches so if you have a deeper scratch, you may need to repeat this process quite a few times.

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.

Scratches in my LCD Television Screen (sony bravia) How will I fix this?

Easiest solution is the stuff you buy to fix your glasses with (Lens cpr), so long as it's a small scratch. Larger scratches don't try to fix you can damage the screen further. 

Other solutions (though I recommend only at your own risk)
Vaseline Method
Clean the surface of the screen.
Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.


Pencil Eraser Method
Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor.
Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears [1].

Lcd tv scratched

One really cheap and quick fix is to gently rub a little vaseline into the scratch, then even more gently rub off the excess, in the direction of the scratch. Oftentimes, though still visible when the screen is off, the scratch will virtually disappear when the display is on. An alternative method is to use white candle wax, which has been allowed to cool on the tip of a cotton swab. If this does not work, a fine rubbing compound can remove the scratch for real, assuming it is not too deep.
