The only thing said to be more delicate than a girl’s heart is a LCD screen and it needs much more care than a CRT. LCD panels hold polarizing crystals between two glass sheets which produce the quality pictures. The images produced by a LCD are many times better than a CRT but even minor damage can ruin it completely. Unfortunately, the LCD panel becomes of no use if the glass panel breaks down and liquid crystals held inside get dispersed.
The only thing you can do in that case is throw it in trash. However if the degree of damage is just limited to a scratch then you can definitely do something to mend it.
There are two ways to remove scratches on your LCD screen:
1. First of all apply diluted isopropyl alcohol (50/50 with water) with a clean cotton cloth on the surface of the screen. This should make the surface clear of any dirt and then you can put Vaseline in the trough of scratch. Gently wipe the Vaseline left off the scratch. This should fill the scratch with Vaseline and you can again enjoy gaming or watching videos on your screen.
2. You can also do this trick to get you rid of the scratch if the scratch is particularly harsh. Start with cleaning the surface with diluted isopropyl alcohol (50/50 with water) as mentioned in previous way. Apply a bit of auto rubbing compound the scratched surface and polish the area. After that, use a piece of paper and make a very small hole (5mm) in its centre to spray clear lacquer on the surface. Leave the surface to dry after that.
These techniques should help and you must read the instruction manual of the LCD manufacturer before applying any cleaning agent on the screen.
