1  Screen Tablet malarky / Monitors / Screen scratch repairs - Buff out or Squeege Fill? on: March 25, 2017, 02:52:23 PM
I have a question about minor screen scratches, hairline or smaller

I know the easiest fix it is to cover with a screen protector or a sheet of acetate.

I picked up a 21UX recently with one or two very very light scratches, the advice I was given was to fill with some acrylic solvent and squeegee the surface driving the glue into the void to avoid any bumps or nib catching. Has anyone tried this technique?

I cant find reference but have seen this discussed before online with another Cintiq/screen tablet. What type of epoxy would you use/recommend? I do not want to melt or cause any chemical reaction if my screen is not suitable, pretty sure its a glass one (2nd gen). Clear drying craft PVA glue comes to mind as a test even though it drys matte and rubbery.

Theres also lots of compounds out there for buffing out small scratches like these, I don't want to create a shadow or rainbow lens effect by buffing a small concentrated area so its not something I'd try without asking. Id take time to cover the entire screen area or make a jig to hold a small rotary polisher in place evenly.

So my plan is polish lightly and if the scratch is too large fill it. I'll probably be using a screen protector at the end of the day but I'd like to know what options are the best from other forum members that have experience with their own screen problems and fixing things like this.

Eventually, I'd love to replace the front bezel with a frame that allowed easy replacement of the glass so I could keep using it without worry, mabey 3d printing is the way to go if Wacom dont refurb the old units anymore & their stock of plastic moulds will be gone/withheld soon.

Thanks man, I just picked up a 2nd Gen yesterday, no issues with the backlight, brightness is very good, I don't know if they used the same CCFLS as your 1st gen, I assume they kept the same brand in both models and have the same housing/diffuser.

I assume you red the a LED replacement strip mod posted a while back:

Is it difficult to remove the back cover & did the inner housing cause any grief? I'd probably only need to remove the back plastics in future for a clean & hoover to prevent dust buildup.

Anyone here had experience using these tablets, I think they are a rebranded Bosto or Huion, talking about their 22 inch model

I considered them a while back,  I found 1 in 10 youtubers reviewing the 22hd mentioned the pen tilt/rotation support (or lack of) in passing (deal breaker for me) and not a lot of examples with long hours or constant use & how the drivers act, should be more feedback on this product during the year. Apart from that they look ok for hobbyist.

On the plus side they do use a modern IPS screen and sell a bunch of handy accessories for screen tablet users (gloves etc). I'd love to see a teardown of one of these or see some frankenstien project testing a wacom behind one of their screens to see if it jitters :-P
