Any Way To Remove Scratches From Gamepad Screen?

I have one on my screen. I dont think its a big gorge scratch, but it is noticable...I thought it was dog hair or something at first...I've heard this is possible to remove depending how deep, but I wouldnt know where to began with putting chemicals on the screen...and dont want to do more damage experimenting with something untested...does anyone have experience with this sort of thing?

You could clean the screen. This may remove the scratch.

 

How to Clean the Wii U GamePad Screen

Description:

  • Step by step instructions on cleaning the Wii U GamePad Screen

 

Important Note!

  • Do not use any solvents or cleaners of any kind.

  • Do not submerge the system in water or other liquids.

  • Do not pour water directly on the screen.

 

What to do:

     

  1. Slightly dampen a soft, cotton cloth with water ONLY and wipe off the screen.
  2.  

     

  3. Using a dry portion of the same cloth, wipe the screen dry.
  4.  

     

  5. Using a loop of transparent tape, dab at any remaining dust or smudges.

Re: Any Way To Remove Scratches From Gamepad Screen?

A long time ago I was looking for solutions to fix the scratches on my 3DS. There are a few on the market marketed to remove screen scratches for smartphones. WARNING: I personally haven't tried them as I didn't know if it'd affect the 3D capabilities of the 3DS screen so don't know if it works, but considering there's nothing special about the gamepad's screen compared to smartphones it could be worth a shot. Though the above suggestion of just cleaning the screen with water should help most of the time as what looks like scratches is just grime or whatnot.

Don't use toothpaste.  Most toothpaste is abrasive and may leave area where you rub it looking cloudy.  I'm not sure what the lemon polish would do....

 

I suggest you just clean the screen.  This will not get rid of the scratch but may make it less noticeable.  You can also get a screen protector to prevent further damage to the screen.
