How to remove LCD screen protector?


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

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.

      With mirrorless cameras exposing the sensor whenever a lens is changed, dust and other particles can become attached to the sensor.  as the sensors tend to heat up with use, I wonder if particles can become 'baked on'.  The question I have is, how frequently do people clean their camera's sensor?  And how do you clean your sensor, do you just uses a blower, a brush, wet clean with swab or a sticky gel like Eyelead?
       
      I believe that my ageing 'rocket' blower, where the bulb is made of rubber, is decaying and actually deposited fine particles on the sensor when I used it.  How can I check, and what is the design life of a rubber blower brush?  Some spots on my SL2 sensor took quite some removing with an alcohol-based wet cleaning kit and gel-based Eyelead.

      regardless of RF or DSLR, there is grease mark on LCD.  I hate the smell days later if I forgot to wipe it.  For the same reason I don't like people touch my cameras... 
      I use right eye to focus which should be better than lefty.  I've tried to rotate my head clockwise to avoid touchy touchy but weird becoz I use both eyes.
      I have a diopter + prescription on the M already but my nose is still touching the LCD.  I'm thinking to add a larger eyecup that can push my face away a little which I haven't tired yet but would it work? 
      P.S. It's not an extreme case, my nose is normal to medium size.  =P

      Sometimes the dirt trapped in the lens grip can be too stubborn to be brushed off by a tooth brush.
      A bamboo chopstick can help.

      I have a couple questions for those who have owned or had experience with the T and TL bodies. I realize this has been discussed in other threads, but I’m hoping for a little more insight. Even when auto review is turned off on my T body, the captured image lingers on the screen for a second (the equivalent of "blackout" on other cameras), prohibiting me from immediately composing my next shot. I admit that's not a lot of time, but it can have an impact on my shooting workflow. So my questions are 1) do the TL and TL2 also have this issue, and 2) does using a faster memory card decrease the time it takes for the monitor to become live again? For reference, I'm using a Panasonic SDHC Class 10 UHS-3 card with a 45 MB/s write time, and I'm shooting RAW (DNG) with 1.8 MB jpeg files. The T has no option for shooting DNG only, unfortunately.

      Can anyone recommend a reputable & competent shop who performs cleaning, lubrication, adjustment (CLA) for Leica R lenses, cameras & DMR?  I've an R9+DMR & several R lenses in need of basic CLA.
       
      Last month, Leica, Allendale, NJ told me that they, "No longer service the R system; & that Leica Germany doesn't either..."  I'm greatly disappointed to hear this.  Seems that Leica ought to @ least offer basic CLA on this venerable system.
       
      Didn't seem like the Leica Technical Manager there (Allendale, NJ) even knew Leica's product history, as he stated that, "Leica discontinued the R series 15 yrs. ago," when, in fact, Leica discontinued the R in March 2010 (8 yrs. ago).  Pointless to argue w/ him though...  Just disappointed.
