My new vita has acquired a fairly large scratch on the screen and it's pretty annoying, does anyone know of a good scratch remover?

as most scratch removers are fairly rubbish, simply eat off top layer of plastic(cds dvds etc.) instead of actually filling the scratches and repairing the surface.

Abrasive toothpaste apparently works well too.

I'd honestly just ignore the scratches though. Most of my devices have scratched screens and the scratches aren't noticeable once you have a small backlight on.

I don't think i'd use abrasive toothpaste on a screen...i think that it's supposed to be used to fix disc scratches because of the way the laser is reflected.

As for the Vita....get one of these. That should not only hide the scratch but offer excellent protection for the future. I cover everything i have in those kits (well my DS and PSP's!)

Oh, my bad, that's where I read about it. I had a scratched game and tried toothpaste. It didn't work but that's probably because, upon further inspection, the game looked like it got into a bar fight with a sander and lost.

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.
