How to remove LCD screen protector?

Recommended Posts

I have somehow managed to get a little condensation behind the protective glass for the LCD screen. I've never applied one of these protective screens myself before, but would like to remove it as it's a little annoying. Any suggestions/best practices other than just ignore it? 😉 Thanks!

Is it a glass or plastic screen protector that is applied over the top of the glass LCD screen?

If it’s plastic and flexible you can just peel it off.

If it’s glass it is probably easily removable with a very thin smooth piece of rigid plastic gently slid underneath the corner until it comes free.

Good question. I bought the camera used. Always though it came with the camera. It feels rigid so I guess trying a piece of rigid plastic, maybe my credit card, to prop it off would be good. But once I do that how do I replace it?

In my most recent experience I found the adhesive was a very narrow strip outside the image area.

Removing it - waxed dental floss passed under an edge. First pull diagonally for convenience. The wax in the floss helps a lot. Clean up with  a  cotton swab and  isopropyl alcohol, or whiskey, whatever is handy. :)

Credit card is too thick. Try thinner.

Some of them (Larmor type) are held in place with static and easily removed and replaced after cleaning. Others with adhesive not so much. If yours has a black border it’s probably adhesive and you’ll need a new one. Google Sopi YoYo and look for the Larmor.

 If it is a rgid protector (glass or polycarbonate) with a thin strip of adhesive around the edges gentle warming with a hair dryer followed by the use oc dental floss as Pico suggests is a simple and safe method.
