    I have a customer with a beautiful 36" Toshiba that is hardly 3 years
    old. CRT screen is scratched up in a few places. The scratches are deep
    and simple puffing did not help. Is there a procedure to remove deep
    scratches like that without causing more damage to the screen ? Thank
    you.

    Not much you can do with deep scratches in glass. Best you can do is take
    some regular toothpaste on a cotton cloth and rub the scratched area. I
    wouldn't even go this far if the CRT is tinted with glare coating since
    you'll rub through it. If the toothpaste trick doesn't work, they'll have to
    live with it and start treating their property with better care.

    Hi...

    Another way to consider might be that liquid stuff that they
    sell to fill in tiny scratches in eyeglass lenses.

    Check with a good eyeglass shop.

    Take care.

    I've had my suspicions that that stuff is something like Future
    Acrylic.

  5. They also sell something at the auto parts store for fixing cracks in car
    windshields. It seems to be some sort of epoxy that supposedly can cover up
    cracks / scratches / holes!

    Note that most CRTs have an anti glare finish. Attempting to polish out the
    scratch will make the area glossy near the scratch.

    'Not much you can do about the problem.
