The screen protector on my nearly 2 yr old NEX5N started coming off so I completed the process only to find that the anti-reflection (or some lind of coating) has come away ina pretty random fashion. I have a photo but not at work & will try to post later.

I contacted the screen protection supplier who said "not us, it's a common fault with NEX's & Sony will replace it FOC". Contacted Sony UK who said "no, not common send it in & we will repair it at a cost to be advised"

Has anyone else had this problem & if so how were you treated - any thoughts ?

Many thanks


After the coating started to flake off my old NEX-5 after a couple of years daily use, I stuck a sharp blade  (or maybe the tip of a jeweller's flat-head screwdriver?) under the edge of it carefully, and it peeled off cleanly in one, leaving a pristine, clear (and reflective) glass surface underneath! I wonder if you got underneath the coating properly to remove it?
