Digital cameras are popular and most are equipped with an LCD screen. These types of screens are not as strong or as durable as glass screens and are much more easily scratched and damaged. Some damage can be irreversible, but a scratch can usually be treated with petroleum jelly, which more closely matches the optical density of the LCD face, compared with air.

  1. 1

    Check to make sure that the LCD screen on your digital camera is scratched and not cracked. If it is cracked, you will most likely have to send it in to the manufacturer to have it repaired.

  2. 2

    Clean the surface of the screen with a clean cloth to make sure it is not dirty or dusty before you treat it.

  3. 3

    Fill the scratch by wiping some petroleum jelly into it. Gently wipe away any excess petroleum jelly with your cloth, careful not to wipe the petroleum jelly out of the scratch completely.
