which model of camera is it? I have had plenty of success with replacing lcd screens on comact cameras and buying them from ebay, It will likely have a little ribbon cable that is easy to disconnect and replace with a new one once the back has been removed. I assume its similar but more compicated to disassemble on an SLR or bridge camera.
hope this helps
Just leave it and move on - its a scratch and will not affect your photo's
I replaced the rear lcd screen on my nikon d300 as there was moisture behind it, was as simple as heating the lcd glass with a hair dryer and lifting the lcd out and replacing with a new one + seal, took all of 10 mins and cost £25. If it was just a scratch or 3 on it I wouldn't of bothered to be honest.
Alot cheaper than what nikon wanted and has been fine for over a year now.
Is it the LCD screen? Or is it just the glass that covers the LCD as on many cameras?
hi all, the camera is the canon 600d looking at it more closely it seems to be the glass in front of lcd the reason i want it fixed and i know it dosent effect pictures i will at some point want to sell it and upgrade to a better camera will be harder to sell with screen scratched
I had a watch which got a large scratch (on the clear plastic), and just using a tiny amount of T-Cut (car polish) on a cotton bud made the scratch a lot less obvious. I don't know if it will help on the 600d (or make it worse!), but if you're planning to replace the cover anyway it might be worth trying first.
You might well be looking at silly prices to have it replaced.
Leave it alone and sell it later as is unlees you do as Gareth did.
Could this be of any help
They can be removed.
You need to get a hairdryer and warm up the screen (Its only an LCD protector) for several mins. Get one of those round sucker things that people use to stick things on glass etc and press onto screen. With a craft knife and pulling on the sucker gently prise the protector off. It will come off when it has been warmed up.
Clean up the gunk underneath. Blow any dust away from the area and replace with new cover!! Simples
