Replacing the LCD screen protector

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Any idea on how to cleanly replace the 109 LCD screen protector with a new one? Can I just peel off the old one? Will I have to wipe the screen before putting the new protector? I worry whether any glue trace may be left over on the screen. Any experience? Thanks in advance.

Depends. Sorry to start with that, LOL.

It "should" just peel off, but this requires a "soft" flexible sort of protector. I have been using glass style protectors, and these I would "carefully" pry off, working very carefully.

Once you have it (either style) off, clean it with alcohol or similar, I've seen the guys in malls use aftershave/perfume, so perhaps give that a go. Be careful you don't attract dust and carefully align and attach the new one.

The ones I have bought in the past have had a cleaning wipe(s) included, still, try to get the old residue etc off first, then use the wipe(s) if supplied.

I remove the glass protector by using waxed dental floss. Pull it fairly tight, work it under a corner then slowly pull it through. (The wax helps lubricate).

Clean as Gary wrote.
