was wondering if anyone else here had any ideas as my problem isnt "small" scratches
I got this thing for a steal at $200, 21" monitor with badass refresh rate. its amazing quality. I bought it knowing that the site said it had "minor blemishes or scratches" though i dont think this is minor, i cant really say much about it since i knew that this might happen.
its got these damned gouges in the screen, i think they may just be gouges in the coatings that are on the glass. I'm not looking to make it perfect, thats probobly impossible. I'm hoping jsut to soften the blemishes so they arent so... apparent.
You can't repair the anti-glare coating if that's what's damaged (not AFAIK) but you can remove the coating and repair fine scratches on the actual glass. This would leave you with naked, smooth glass but perhaps that's better than what you are seeing.
To do the job 3M manufactures special buffing disks for both jobs, removing coatings and repairing scratches (see link).
You'll have to remove the entire anti-static coating. Then, if you have a deep gouge, you might be able to repair it with a windshield repair kit, I'm not really sure though, I'd read the directions on the windshield repair kit before buying it.
Basically you can fill any deep knicks with clear epoxy and buff it out level.
