Removing Decal On Left Side Of Screen Sl-c1000
« on: July 23, 2006, 08:12:43 am »
I want to remove the decal on the frame on the left side of the screen which gives instructions for swiveling the screen.
I know how it's done, and since I don't read Japanese anyway, I just want to get rid of it.
Before I go ripping it off, and take a chance of defacing my beautiful z, I thought someone might have a suggestion for removing it without causing any damage.

Thanks, Doug

Check on a product called GOO GONE, you can find it at Lowes and many other hardware/home improvement stores. I've used this with success on PC parts I've picked up at computer shows. Its citrus based, so it hasn't damaged any plastic parts 'yet'. I would however be very careful not to get it on the touch screen... as I haven't tested that.

Fix some adhesive tape on top of the sticker and peel it off,  starting at the corners.   Use more tape to remove the glue and a bit of alcohol to clean it.  Worked fine for me.

Well, after looking over these suggestions, and getting up the courage, I finally decided to just peel that decal right off.
I started with one corner, and it peeled right off easy.
And guess what... no glue whatsoever.
The plastic was clean as a whistle.
WHEW!!!!
Thanks for all the suggestions.

yes, I have removed that on four Zauri so far (2x 3000 and 2x 3100), and no remaining glue on the surface.
