Hi,

I am supposed to remove the film over the LCD that’s taped down, correct?

Not really sure what you mean but that black tape around the screen is NOT to be removed!

Hi, please try not to tear off the film attached to the LCD screen. If there is any stolen objects on it, wipe it off with ethanol. Do not remove the black tape around the screen!

The film is becoming cloudy and has bubbles under it. Am I supposed to replace the whole LCD when the screen protector goes bad?

hi, it is not necessary to replace the LCD screen, you can remove the protective film, or reattach a protective film. Just like the protective film for mobile phone screen.

The film edge is taped down under the black tape. Do I take the tape off, remove the screen protector, then replace the tape?

When I saw the headline I was worried. Thank heavens I have not removed that thing.

Wow its crazy to read this now our printer Peopoly Noir came with scratched screen cover and they told us to take it off and tape and remove the screen protector and just use some tape from amazon link they supplied sure enough our lcd got scratched on our first level test so crazy idk why they didn’t just could have just sent us a replacement screen protector. We are waiting on a replacement.

I eventuatly went with replacing the screen film with FEP film from McMaster and replacing the tape first with electrical tape, and then with kapton tape. Both worked well. The thicker electrical tape gave an anomalously thick base layer, but it worked fine. I’ve done probably a hundred large prints since then.

Uh, great info! I just had some bubbles under this protective film, see attached

I had success to move them to the edges using plastic spatula. So for now, I leave that way, but I have to change this soon, I assume. So, the FEP film do the job?

Thanks.

There is a protective film on the top of the panel and it is very useful against resin spills. Please leave it on. If you don’t want to remove the film, you can wipe it with alcohol. Minor scratches or small bubbles will not affect printing, so it is best to keep them as precautionary even the film is designed to offer temperaory protection primary during shipment.

This is the Phenom LCD guide, which discusses the panel and the film on the panel and how to properly clean it when needed:

If you decide to remove the film, run the leveling again:

On Phenom L, I believe the screen protector is bubbling quite rapidly, perhaps poor adhesion with the screen on install. After just the first test print it got large bubbles:

I just received a Forge, am I reading here that the Peopoly machines come with a scree protector already installed?
