Default Screen Scratches Question

Hello all, this is my first post so please bear with me, I'll try not to say something too blaspheming.

I have just got a hold of a Sansa 280 V2 it works great, but the scratches on the screen are really starting to bug me, so I was wondering what could I do to remove these little nuisances. One solution in particular has peaked my interest, it is the Brasso trick that I have used on my old iPod, but not on my Sansa. So I was wondering if someone has tried this and get the same desired effect? Thanks in advance.

-Oh and sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.

You can try applesauce or non-gel toothpaste. They are take them out. You might have to take it apart, but since I have not got scratches on mine, I am not sure.

Applesauce seems like it would work like a charm, price isn't to bad either. I think I might go the tooth paste way, but I think Brasso would work to because its a micro abrasive too.

Yes! The brasso worked like a charm, it didn't get the really deep scratches out, but it made them less visible and took out most of the small superficial scratches I am so happy with the results. I wish I took a before picture, but I was worried that it might come out looking worse than before, but it didn't!

Great to hear. It always worked for people. You are right. It does not get the deep ones.

How well does the white tooth paste work?

Thanks, to be honest I barely tried the tooth paste method but I didn't see much of a difference, but then again I put little effort behind it because I had my mind set on the Brasso method.

Brasso is a metal polish which can be used on plastics too. No special method, just use as directed.

If you still haven't fixed it, get a plastic 'anti-scratch' skin for your player. It hides the really small scratches, and prevents you from getting more Ain't expensive either, just get "BestSkinsEver", or "Clarivue", it's ~$8.

Any way you go, I’d recommend to test on the surface of something you don’t care about to get the hang of it and determine if that’s what you’ll use on your dap.

Would this protect the screen, then? Like a sort of plastic screen or something?

The BestSkinEver is like a screen protective film that PDA's and screens on other devices.

For the scratches I used a special polish for plastic watch glasses... It's called PolyWatch and you basically just rub it in the screen. Worked great for me. I bought it in a watchshop a few years ago. I don't know what the longterm effect is though... only just applied it.
