Cleaning a PDA screen

by tomg35 / June 26, 2010 12:01 AM PDT


I have an IPAQ onto which was attached a screen protector.

Over time I wasn't able to press any icons/sliders etc that were at the edges of the screen so I removed the screen protector which cured the problem.

However I have another problem - A glue like substance on the screen. I cannot scrape it off as this may damage the screen and I've tried a cleaning solution but that won't shift it either.
Has anyone got any suggestions as to get rid of the glue?

Generally you can use a eraser to clean it or use towel with cleanser essence to clean.

If also do not cleanly, you need to specialized cell phone clean store, they have specialized cleaning agent!
