    Any fix for PDA display abrasion?

    Bought a Cassiopeia E-100 PDA.
    The (insert pet name here) previous owner
    played solitaire 24/7 without a screen protector.
    There are worn marks on the touch screen that make
    what's underneath fuzzy.

    Are there any tricks for polishing out some of this?
    Any improvement at all would be better than nothing.
    I'm assuming that the touchpanel is an integral part of
    the display...even if it were separate, probably wouldn't
    be worth the cost of fixing it.
    Yes, I did make a screen protector for it.

    Thanks, mike

    Thanks, but that site seems to be for everything EXCEPT Casio.
    Not willing to invest real $$ in this junker.

    Thought there might be some trick like smearing pork fat into the worn
    spot and putting on a screen protector. Hmmm, wonder what the index of
    refraction is for pork fat???

    If it's a case of fix it or chuck it, you can sometimes polish out
    abrasion using toothpaste on a soft cloth. Takes several hours!
     
  6. Try spraying WD40 on a soft rag and cleaning the screen with it. Sometimes
    helps hide scratches

    IF it's just a clear plastic, you can get plastic polishing materials that
    will take out scratches at
    www.micromark.com

    You can find either Novus polishing liquids or "sandpaper" in grits up to
    12,000! I've used these to repair model car windshields that were fouled
    with plastic glue.

    Armor-All does a better job on scratched plastics.
