Deep Scratch Mark On Screen?

Feb 5, 2011

About a couple of weeks ago I showed my brother my iPad as he was thinking of buying one himself. Anyway while he was looking at it my 4 year old niece had her face over the screen and her neckless was dangling on the screen. My brother gave her into trouble telling her that she could scratch the screen by doing that. Anyway I was meaning to check my iPad to see if the screen did scratch and just last night to my horror while cleaning the screen I seen a 1 cm long deep scratch mark. I don't know if it is coincidence but I'm wondering if the scratch was caused by my niece dangling her necklace two weeks before or if the scratch was caused by me carrying it all the time in a soft case in my backpack where I have wires and PSU adaptor in my backpack too. Surely the soft iPad case would protect the screen even with no screen protector.

Deep Scratch After Cleaning

Jul 13, 2010

Just cleaned my iPad screen with a microfiber cloth, to my shock and dismay I found a deep scratch. Cloth was clean. Scratch visible with the screen both on and off.

Let me tell you, I baby this thing. Always put it in a protective case. Always face up on a table. There are no diamond rings in my house! How did this happen???

I thought this glass was supposed to resist scratches. It really looks like someone took a diamond to it. So frustrating.

Does Apple Care cover this? Or are they going to claim negligence and force me to fork out some unbelievable amount of money to get the screen replaced?

Getting A Scratch On Screen

Jul 22, 2010

I was wiping the screen of my iPad with the special cloth that came with my 24" Cinema display, and I noticed that there was a scratch on my iPad screen. Since I got the device I haven't taken a look at it super close because I've just been so excited to use it. If I've been looking at it it's been in on (which is extremely difficult to see the scratch).I can't imagine in the few hours of use that I scratched the device. I mean the thing has been pampered and lightly touched. I have had an iPhone 3GS for 9 months that has the same glass and goes in and out of my pocket that is scratch free. How could I have scratched my iPad? I mean the glass is super durable and it looks like something sharp has dinged the screen (all of which I can a test to not happening). What should I do?

Scratch In The Middle Of The Screen

Jun 7, 2011

Just got my brand new iPad delivered to me by fed ex this morning, when I finally open up the box and connect my iPad to iTunes, I notice that my iPad has a scratch in the middle of the screen. I tried cleaning it with glass cleaner and soft cloth, but it would not rub off (so, it's a scratch). It's about 1/4 inch long. What should I do? Should I just live with it? This product cost me nearly 800 dollars so I would like to have something perfect in my hands...

Screen Scratch - Dropped Wifi

May 3, 2010

I've had my ipad for 16 days now and I love it. However, I was getting quite fed up with the amount of dropped wifi connections as I was trying to browse last night, a problem that has plagued my machine since I got it. This morning, I got up, cleaned my screen and discovered a scratch on the screen. I am always VERY careful with my technology and have no idea how this could have possibly got there.

Getting Long Hairline Scratch On Screen

Apr 14, 2010

Long hairline scratch. Noticeable on certain angles with the screen off. No idea how I got it. I baby the hell out of it and hasn't left the case since day one.I'm guessing the microfiber cloth I use had a sand particle on it and scratched the screen as I was wiping it. IMO, a screen protector is necessary.

Drawing Stylus - Scratch Up The Screen

Jul 22, 2010

Can anyone recommend a good, pen-sized stylus for the iPad? I am looking for something pretty precise for drawing & writing. I have seen several on Amazon and a few other places, however, none of them seem to be what I am looking for. I tried one that had a soft, felt-like tip, which I can appreciate because I don't want to scratch up the screen, but it was too wide, trying to simulate a fingertip and I really need something with a fine tip.UPDATE***I just received my Dagi today, and I absolutely love it. The point takes a little getting used to, but once you get it, its great. I highly recommend. Also seems to be a little heavier than most stylus which is also a plus. The company that sells these on eBay is located in Taiwan, so they take a little while to reach the states (mine took 2 weeks) no big deal. Thanks for the advice bjameslynch.

Scratch On My Four Day Old Screen / Unable To Remove It

Jul 4, 2010

I've somehow managed to get what I think is an inch long "U" shaped scratch on my 32GB iPad screen - 2 inches in from the back bezel; it may be a crack though - hard to tell. I've been incredibly careful with my new iPad (It's only 5 days old), I've been using a slip case and not even putting it down on tables without first putting something soft down for it to sit on.

Bit gutted really - Apple don't seem to sell screen protectors through Apple stores, and they had sold out of the official Apple case. Was told these things are basically scratch proof so pretty shocked to see such a deep scratch seemingly from no-where. I've had my current iPhone for about 18months with no case in my pocket with keys and coins and have nothing nearly as horrendous as this scratch on my iPad.

I've called Apple support and they told me that doesn't sound normal and have booked me into speak to a Genius this evening to check the device for defects.

Just wanted to ask if anyone else has had similar experience and if they had a resolution.

I've been having a pretty bad run of luck recently, so I thought I'd treat myself to a new toy - and it's been a fantastic device the past few days, but now worried that it's a little more fragile than people are being lead to expect, and that I'm going to pick up more damage before the device is even a month old.

Ipad 2 Glass Screen Scratch

Mar 23, 2011

My ipad 2 has a small scratch on the screen. you need to rotate it a bit under light to see but I used a macro camera and took a pic of it. I waited 6 hours on the Friday line at 5th avenue in NYC to get one. My 14-day return is almost up (i have to return by Friday).

how to confront them about this issue? I am almost certain I didn't scratch it and paying 700 dollars for my iPad 2 should at least come with a decent screen right?

Also, can I ask for a "raincheck" or extension on my return date in case they do not have the my model in stock anymore? I feel like it should be justified as I stood outside for 6 hours for an iPad.

I had a long non-visible scratch on my iPad. Well, now a new scratch has appeared and it's visible definitely when the screen is on, mostly on a white background.Luckily, it's at the bottom right of my iPad, when in portrait orientation right over the shift key.

I asked squaretrade and they dont cover minor scratches. It has to be completely broken.

Screen Scratch Unable To Find A Better Protector

Jul 29, 2010

So I did a quick goog search and here on this forum and didn't find one thread that gets peeps substantial feedback on different screen protectors.I don't want extra bulk. I just want to know which you think is the best film to apply to the screen to protect from scratches.

Here's what I've found:
Casemate ( $35
Invisibleshield by Zagg ( $25
Stealthguards ( $20
BodyGuardz ( $20
iLuv ( $15

If you are using one, please tell us:
1. How resistant is it to showing finger smudges?
2. How clear is it?
3. Does it stay put, or does it peel up at the edges?
4. After you remove it, does it leave any residue?
These are the four key features for a scratch protector film, I think.
