So displex made my scratches worse :/

had a bunch of mild scratches in one small area and one deeper one that caused the rainbow effect. spent twenty minutes with a soft cloth and the displex. when I turned the screen back on I had a ton of rainbows. maybe I did it wrong.

so what has someone used on scratches like this on a tp2? maybe the stuff that's supposed to fill the scratches in (rather than buff them out) will work better?

thank god for insurance.

serious? that must smell bad after some time. honestly, I got over the paranoia and insured my phones. Owned my TP2 for nearly a year, several dozen drops(dog likes to pull phone from the charger cable), paint chipping on the corners, a couple of decent slashes on the screen from the drops, and the thing still runs like a champ! All the cuts seem to dissapear when the screen lights up, so it doesnt bother me any. and if anything does go horribly wrong, Sprint will get me a new one

Re: So displex made my scratches worse :/

I've used 3M rubbing compound and a clean microfiber cloth to rub out light scratches on the touchscreen with good results. Use compound sparingly and lite even pressure during the process.

Re: So displex made my scratches worse :/

Can someone explain what displex is and how it differs from other screen protectors?

Re: So displex made my scratches worse :/

I saw the bit about displex not being for touch screens but based on this I decided to give it a whirl: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Does_displ...nes_if_not_why
that and the insurance

I also tried toothpaste, but no joy, and you gotta be careful not to leave any.

guess I'll get the protector. still curious if I can find something that fills the cracks. mostly it's just the rainbow effect that's distracting. maybe that goes away if it's filled in a bit. like he said, the smaller ones disappear once it's lit.
