    Damn ! Got a 6600 just last week and already have a scratch. Its not massive
    but it bugs me, I wondered what sort of options I had to get a replacement
    screen. I know when my Gamenoy Advance got a scratch it was easy to get
    fixed and very cheap but somehow I doubt thatll be the case, but if anyone
    knows Id appreciate the info

    Or even toothpaste if it's only a surface scratch.

    How does that work ? Brasso will actually fill the scratch in ?

    I can second that Brasso works well on minor scratches. It's a fine abrasive
    so works by wearing away the sharp edge of a scratch. You have to rub hard
    in a circular motion for quite some time. Practice on some scratches on the
    front of a CD Jewel case first.

    Nope Brasso is a very fine abrasive, and so abrades the surrounding
    plastic down to the level of the scratch. Same with T-cut, Duraglit and as
    someone else suggested toothpaste. It works best with non-deep scratches,
    but with a deep crater a new cover would be better.

    BTW do NOT use any of the above on *optical* lenses like sun-glasses,
    spectacles, camera lenses, etc. it will ruin them.
