Sratches in de Ipod Nanos, A chip SOLUTION

Recommended Posts

Adam:

 

I have been hearing about the problem with scrathed

nanos, I have a lot of experience in plastics and hard

materials. I am in the awards and jewerly industry,

and also I am an ipod owner.

 

I can guarantee you the solution of scratched nano

because of the experience I have in polishment.

 

Just buy No.1200 or 1500 sand paper (3m sand paper is

great)

and 3m RUBBING COMPOUND (can be the No. 5973). You can

buy this in places where sell accesories for car

paints. car shops, home depot, etc.

 

You are going to spend like $10.00 (and you will be

able to polish your screen many many times)

 

Procedure:

 

1. Sand the screen with the sand paper (number 1200 or

1500)with some drops of water so you can sand it a

little more smooth, sand it until you dont see or feel

the scratches, do not worry if at that time the screen

is completely satin or opaque.

 

2. With a soft or smooth fabric (I recommend cotton

fabric, an old t-shirt works great) start polishing

with the 3m Rubbing Compound until you see the opaque

converts into a very bright crystal like screen, Like

new. I guarantee U.

 

You can do this procedure any time you think your Ipod

nano or any ipod become ugly scratched.

 

Hope this can be usefull for maccast listeners.

 

Sincerely,

I don't know if I'd trust you with a $250 iPod Nano. Maybe a video to show the process of restoring screen transparency?

The Ipod nano is made of the same plastic of the 4th generation ipods, POLYCARBONATE, this plastic is used to make eyeglasses, and the front lights of cars, the polyshment (3m rubbing compound) is 100% safe and will give you a NEW IPOD again, the only thing is that you must be polishing it like for about 30 minutes to get a crisp and crystal look!!!

 

Believe me, Ok!

Yeah, that makes sense. Once (if) I get an iPod Nano and it's scratched badly, I'll remember that.

The one I use is 3m Rubbing Compound 5973, but I think the polishing compound can work too.

 

About the sand paper, the numbers 1200 or 1500 are really smooth, as you can feel you can notice it is no such rough, you feel it like normal bond paper.

 

Sand papers number 1200, 1500 and 2000 are also called polishing papers because they even polish because of their soft abrasives.

 

 

The term polish not also means only brightness, in jewerly to get a bright finish you must level all imperfections into the same level, scratches are at a lower level, so you must transform all the surface into the same level, that is the function of sand paper. And the Rubbing compound will level the microcopic scratches made made by the sand paper and that is what gives the LIKE NEW FINISH!!

cool. just like auto refinishing. we should also remind people to completely wet the sand paper and moisten the screen before any sanding begins.

1500 sandpaper feels just like construction paper. it isnt rough at all. and when you polish it, the scratches go away. just remember, when you have your car painted they sand the paint multiple times.
