    Just got back from vacation to Bahamas and noticed a problem with my gf2 screen. It functions fine but the screen seems to be etched. Touch focus works and it is completely visible but you can see marks on the screen when it's in light. I think salt in the air did something to it... Won't clean off, any suggestions?

    Hmmm... Doesn't sound good - I would suggest getting a jeweller to lightly polish the screen, but I could guarantee it wouldn't damage it.

    That's strange, was it rubbing against something in your bag, or on your jacket while around your neck?? There are auto polishes that can remove light scratches. I'd investigate that option.

    it's not scratched but seems more like the salt in the air ate through the coating on the screen.. i've thought about using a strong chemical to remove the rest of the coating but am afraid that maybe the coating is on there for touch screen reasons.... any idea?
