-   -   scratches on my monitor is pissing me off now (

Okay, sanding it was the dumbest thing Ive ever heard of, there is no way to fix it, only make it more bearable, which you might be able to do with a BLACK polish not white (someone said toothpaste before) white polish is for things you look at, but when your looking through something you want a black polish.
Btw I have a 21'' Sony Trinitron too, (sony 520GS) and I got the same thing when my housekeeping cleaned my monitor with windex...

how about you give me your monitor for free, now that you've ****ed it up so royally.

Rofl - I feel for dude because I once shot a TV with a bb gun and chipped the glass, at which point I had to sand it down to remove the chip and then polish it with 3 different types of compounds to get it glossy again..

rofl - he would be fine w/ sandpaper as long as you know that you'll need to go through about 8 different grits to 2000 wet and then polish with different 3 grits of rouge or polishing compound.

I'm not sure why he thought he could do it with one type of sandpaper.. I'd say that's his fault for doing that.

plus - the monitor has that purple optical coating that you can't get back & it has a slighly rough surface to reduce glare so he's ****ed as in it will never look the same.. never/.

shootz it with weapons!

Just destroy the monitor. It's ****ed for life now. Blow it up or something and record it on video for the interweb to see..

btw - if you REALLY want to get the scratches out, the only solution is to jump off a cliff. That's right, jump off a cliff. You won't die. I promise.

ps - if u need to fix yer stuff here is some good info here:

Apparently i was an idiot for trying to use sandpaper but i am guessing like someone else suggested here, it can work. Just takes more then one sandpaper? and an another way to do it.

As for beliving you idiots on tw that is completely my fault i guess, which also makes me an idiot. I guess i was just hoping it would work. BTW the scratch i tried to get rid of first using the sand paper was minimal so my screen is still fine. Just a blob on the lower left side that is bothering me.

Anyways once again though, thanks tw...
