    Hey you all. I bought my OP3 in June 2016 (1 year yeah!). But after so much use the fingerprint reader is stained(shown in the picture). Probably because of skin oil maybe but the thing is it's not coming off. I tried methods to remove stains from ceramic like baking soda etc but nothing seems to work. I protect my phone like anything and it's as spotless as new so this is a big deal to me.
    Has this happened with any of you. and can anyone suggest a fix?

    Others have small cracks and can't do anything except changing the whole screen. If it's working then it's a good thing.

    I'm not sure that the size of your crack is relevant here, but thanks for the info.

    You can search some cleaning solutions that hace a slid acidic concentration at your local shopping center or cleaning departments. Put a drop or two on the button to cover it and rub it with a bit of pressure. Other methods i don't know. Good luck.

    The fp scanner is constructed of ceramic. Look on Internet for cleaning ceramic might want to reference the stain is body oil. IMHO - Jim
