View Full Version : LCD problem HElp

I have a little (big) problem and was wondering if someone had a solution...

A few days ago my brother (by accident) marked up my LCD screen with a "sharpie"...He didn't think "a couple" (4) "pin *****" sized black dots was a big deal...and I suppose it shouldn't be...BUT they are in the center of the screen and look like fighter airplane's at 2 or 3km. (These little dots are really bumming me out) I was thinking of "scraping" them off with a razor blade...(bad idea right???)

I have tried a few over the counter screen cleaners but the dots are still their...

Does anyone know of a way to remove the "little black dots"? Its really messing with my game. The pen is a "Sharpie"

Your in a tough spot there M8. I would try laying the monitor down flat screen up and level. Spray a small amount of screen cleaner onto the affected area and let it sit there for a few minutes. Then try and blot it up spraying more on a T-shirt or cloth material. Never use paper towel it's like taking a piece of wood to the screen...

And never try a razor blade! You might as well replace the monitor if you try that.

That's a shame that it is messed up like that.

Don't panic! Ink stains ranging from permanent and whiteboard markers such as Sharpie and Expo to rollerball and ballpoint can sit on fabric and surfaces for weeks and Amodex will still safely remove it!

DO NOT apply anything else to the ink stain prior to using Amodex. Avoid using alcohol, hair spray, commercial solvents and other cleaning agents which risk setting the stain.

YES, Amodex can be used on carpeting, wood furniture, delicate fabrics such as wool and cashmere, wood and laminate floors, CD's and LCD screens and even your dog's fur! Amodex's mild, cream formula is non-toxic and gentle enough to use on skin.
