    The plastic screen cover may have a hard coating. If that is the case, there
    is not much you can do. If you try to polish it, the scratch will widen and
    deepen as the softer material under the hard coating is polished away.

    If there is no hard coating, you can use something like Novus polish #3 for
    heavy scratches or #2 for fine scratches.

    A bit of regular toothpaste used with a soft clean cloth may work too.
    It's a really fine abrasive. Many stores now repair scratched computer
    and game CDs with a buffing wheel. That may be worth a try.

    Try these ideas on a scrap piece of plastic if possible. Nothing like
    making things worse than they are.

    Do you know if Olympus C-2500L's screen has a hard coating? It's more like a
    tiny patch of abrasion from sandpaper (about the size of a grain of rice) than
    scratch. TIA!
