Glue remains on screen after taken out screen protector !
Hi there all Shift owners ,
I have just replaced my screen protector as the original one is a bit scratchy and got many lines on the left scrolling up / down area , when i peel off the original screen protector , it left a sillicone glue residue on my touch screen . It is messy and ugly and very very sticky and the sight gave me a shock because it is all over and very very sticky to the screen . Then i checked with my local Htc people , a new touch screen cost Usd265/- plus labour charges is Usd 22/- , and i got to back up all data or else it will be deleted away when they replace this screen , it is very very expensive . Luckily i started scratching the glue out by using only my finger nails , little by little , a line by a line , it took me about 5 to 6 hours of hard labour , also rubbing away the scratched glue with my fingers and a piece of tissue paper , no water was used , then finally it was all cleared away , then i install my new screen protector and it is done now . i tested the touch screen n it works fine , i got no choice but to put in this new screen protector because at least it will only scratch the protector and not the actual screen from now on for my daily usage , so beware when u change a new screen protector . i didn't use any liqiud cleaner , thinner or anything else as i am afraid to smear or damage the screen also . thks for reading and cheers - jimmunsw
