My Zaurus dilemma - screen scratches
« on: February 08, 2004, 08:21:27 pm »
A few days ago i pulled my z out of my pocket and discovered an unsightly scratch zone in the upper middle section of the screen.  I have no idea where it came from.  I cant stand dragging my stylus over it.

Is there any way to polish out the scratches, or make them disappear? also, what would you suggest i look for in a screen protector?

Thanks.

Check on the old zaurus devnet site for answers.  Here\'s a thread that I quickly dug up:

http://www.zaurus.com/dev/board/index.php?...49&hl=scratches

If you haven\'t added www.zaurus.com to your hosts file, use this link:

http://66.180.235.229/dev/board/index.php?...49&hl=scratches

To search around on the site, you\'ll have to put the following entry in your hosts file:
66.180.235.229   www.zaurus.com

Hope that helps-
