Nailpolish remover works on other ink stains, followed by a good cleaning with water to remove the acetone. Not sure how your PB screen would react to it.

Good luck!

When I saw "ink" on the title, I hoped for your sake that it was a marker -- or even a fountain pen.

Ballpoints generally take a lot of pressure to write, so even if you can get the ink off, you may find that the screen has been damaged by the pressure.

I doubt the screen has been marred, Its very light - almost unnoticeable except for when the screen has a white background...

I tried iKlear...no luck
