Hello everyone

I have "Toshiba Tecra M4" tablet and recently an ant died inside its screen. Now I want to know whether its possible to clean the screen without going to service center or not?

I don't want to experiment on it. If anyone have any idea about this tablet pc then pls tell me.

Thanks. :)

Hanging, since 2004..
Happened with my frnd's LCD screen, no alternative other than replacement . Service centre guys will replace if in warranty.

Actually it has an extra screen (like anti-glare) above the main screen and I think the ant is between the main and the extra screen. So I think I can remove that extra screen and can clear it but I'm not sure whether I'll be able to re-attach it or not. The screen is tightly attached on main screen.

lol. As I earlier said, it has an extra screen over the main screen, so the ant found a way to enter. :D

Removing such screens neatly without creasing, warping or curling them is not impossible but quite difficult unless you have a lot of experience. And there's the possibility of damaging the LCD screen itself. So I suggest you take it to a service centre.

This reminds me of the time I made a test print of a small picture with my laser printer, and out came all six legs and two antennae of a cockroach "printed" on various parts of the paper. I had visions of the body smeared all over the innards of the printer, with the hassle of taking everything apart and cleaning them carefully.

Luckily, the legless antennae-less body was still at the paper feed rollers, still alive and wriggling. When I took it out and placed it on the floor, it tried to walk on the legless stumps. I killed it immediately.

Damn you had to say that just after I had my lunch.
I am feeling giddy now and I think I want to puke. :mad:
