LCD monitor issue

    In order to get at the wires behind my new LCD monitor I laid it on it
    face atop my keyboard. Now I have a 1/4" "smudge" which is a light
    bluish color. Anyone with experience with this sort of situation?
    Anything I can do or am I stuck. Monitor has a matte finish.

    TIA

    Why did you think it was a good idea to lay your monitor screen down
    on your keyboard? You've likely done irrepairable damage.

    Thank you for that helpful reply.

    I have been able to rub these type smudges out with 80 grit sandpaper.

    Yes, but a chisel works faster.

    I too had this smudge problem and I took your advice, I rubbed with the sand
    paper but it didn;t improve. so I rubbed again and again, now the corner of
    my monitor is missing but I have a pile of plastic dust on my desk.

    Are you sure the sandpaper solves this issue?

    The smudge is gone, isn't it?

    Im not sure if the smudge still appears when you look at the plastic dust
    under the microscope !

    If it does, just use a little rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab to
    buff it out.
