    Hi,
    I don't know how my screen got scratched because I always treated it well.
    It really annoys me when I watch videos (like Simpsons, Family Guy etc.) because the color at the scratch is like rainbowy. It's not when it's like a dark video.
    Anyways, Does anybody have an idea how to get rid of it?
    I tried toothpaste and that car cleaning stuff.
    I'm sure it's a scratch and nothing else.
    Please don't tell me to buy a case. I already ordered one but this happened before there was a decent case available here.
    I would appreciate a quick answer.
    Thanks in advance.

    I don't exactly have a digital camera but the scratch is kind of deep and watching videos really sucks.
    Any suggestions to make it invisible or to get rid of it?

    1. I'm pretty sure Apple has come out and said their screen was "scratch-proof" sometime ago. Maybe someone can get a cite?

    2. Did you try Rubbing Alcohol on it? Tired it on my old 4th Gen. iPod and my scratched PSP and it worked pretty well

    note that this is glass you want to repair. Im pretty sure that methods for older ipods wont work.

    I'm pretty certain that it works on all different items and not just glass....

    Besides....When did a Touch Screen become glass?

    The top layer is glass, there are other layers.
