    Sorry I do not know how to upload photo. Its pretty badly scratched, I have probably made it worse by trying to remove scratches. It has quite a bit of hazy areas on it, although you can still see the screen when it it on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Scratches on the screen is usually the antiglare coating, cleaning it just makes things worse. So clean off the antiglare coating completely with some kitchen roll and windolene.

    Don't spray the windolene onto teh screen, spray it onto the kitchen roll and wapie the screen, leave it for a few mins and then start cleaning it all off.

    Use PlastRX, works a treat as per craig states for the antiglare coating, done a number of screens myself.

    If you can get a nail in the scratches, then its actually damaged the plastic itself of the lcd & either live with or new screen.

    Big thanks to those that said use 'scratch x'.
    I bought some, and even though it says 'do not use on sat nav units' on the back, i used it anyway, and it took all the scratches off my screen, looks as good as new now, and before i used it the screen looked as if someone had tried to clean it with sandpaper!

    Anyway cheers, can recommend this to anyone else with scratches!
