    Hi. There are some scratches on the screen of my iPod Touch.

    Can I fix them?

    I read somewhere that they can be fixed with Displex or some toothpaste. Is it true? I don't want to damage my iPod.

    On the back? The back was designed for scratches!

    He said "on the screen". I wouldn't try anything with it, unless there's scratches on the back, since the screen has cracks on the side which crap can get into.

    The scratches are on the screen (the glass). Trying to fix the scratches on the back would be useless :°D

    I wouldn't try to fix your ipod with toothpaste or any material like that. I remember at one time there was a video circulating that showed how to fix a scratched DVD with windex and then put in the microwave for 10 seconds.

    it didn't work.

    If it were bad enough, I would try to change it myself (or send it to a shop for service - probably not Apple [too much money]) or live with it

    I have very minor tiny pixel scratches.

    You can only see them at a certain angle or if you shine a flashlight on it.

    I like to protect my iPod

    .

    Even though my back has scuffs on it.

    I didn't have a cover for my iPod till a month with it.Thats why the back is scuffed up.

    Best idea is to mask the scratches with a screen protector (Any will do, but if you want something that will last, get Invisible Shield). I've had scratches, nothing can get them out...
