Does anyone have any tips/suggestions on what to use to clean and remove light scratches from the OP-1 screen? I’ve read that toothpaste can do the trick but I’m a little nervous that it would reduce the clarity of the screen.
I would NOT use toothpaste.
We use this meguires #10 polish on airplane plexiglass canopies and it is fantastic. Takes minor scratches out.
Very cool Sparky!
Awesome tip Sparky, I appreciate it!
Is it possible to order a replacement? It looks as though its just a piece of plastic that sits over the OLED screen.
You can get the screen protector on the mother site. http://www.teenageengineering.com/store
Yes, nice tip @sparky. Would that polish work on a LCD monitor hahaaha (wishful thinking). Vaseline has helped camouflaged it for now.
Btw any old screen protector will work, just needs to be cut to size. I bought one for some random cell phone at the store for my op1.
Thanks guys! I def want to pick up a screen protector but I would like to remove the existing scratches before I do so. Apparently the newer OP-1’s have an upgraded display glass.
We have no specific brand to recommend but would love to hear about your experience. We recently updated the display cover on the keyboard modules to be more resistant to scratches. Unfortunately it is attached to the keyboard module and can only be fitted by removing the entire keyboard module. This can be done by our techs, or by yourself (will void warranty) if you feel confident. Here are some info although the process is not fully covered yet: https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Teenage_Engineering_OP-1
Let us know if you want to send it in for upgrade, order the part, or leave it as is. Thanks!
- Keyboard-module (with display-glass): $45 / €45
That price is not the horrific financial ravaging I assumed TE would charge as I read your message. Thanks for sharing.
That’s a very fair price.

Since its a polish, you'll ended up with residue around the edge of the screen that you'll need to get off (where it goes over the edge), but that should be easy enough.
Has anyone tried this with success?
Hi guys maybe it might be a little more expensive to put some toothpaste on it, you wouldn’t know what reaction it would take to apply it, maybe it would be a little better to replace the mica if the image is very distorted, try it through the screen with elaborate cases or micas anddesigned in 3d I have tried it and I have found it.
