    Hi Folks,

    I've accumulated some small, fine scratches on the screen of my Canon
    G5. I presume that the screen has an anti-glare coating, and the
    scratches seem to only affect that. I can't feel them with my
    fingernail. Does anybody know what I might do to correct this
    problem? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I heard metal polish may work to buff out the scratches. Check your local
    home depot.

    Any polishing maneuver sufficient to remove those fine scratches will also
    polish or remove the anti-glare coating/texture, unevenly. Your
    result may very well be FAR more objectionable than the few scratches.

    Get one of those clear vinyl ptotective layers (Hoodman or the like) and
    pretend they aren't there.

    Maybe it's the wrong stuff... plastic polish? I used it once in shop class
    years ago and it made my plastic figurine super shiny!

    There is a company on the net where you can purchase protectors for short
    money. One is:

    They make all kinds of protectors.

  8. Hi Ken,

    The easiest solution is to replace the screen if it really bothers you.
    It is not that expensive and you will be happy afterwards.
    I paid for mine less than AU$200.00 including labour.
