i have done the same thing before, but had the blue screen in, so my image is burned on there. when i e-mailed judy at northwoods about it, she said to just leave it and it should be fine. i have since burned a new image onto a screen, and the burning on my blue screen did not effect it.

i am not sure if this will be the same with yours. maybe try burning a new image onto a screen and see if the burn on the plastic effects it at all.

I did that and yes the image burned on the glass (plastic) but I have used it tons of time since.  It seemed to have no effect.  Just make sure ink doesn’t get stuck in the crevices.

..i dont think it matters really, don’t you just put whatever needs to be printed right on top? I could be wrong

oh my god that totally happened to me before. unfortunately for me, the design was MASSIVE and even when we were able to scratch most of the design off (took a lot of elbow grease), my gocco hadn’t been the same since. i had to get a replacement.

 i know you can get replacement parts from the manufacturer. i was able to get one ordered in through the store i bought my gocco from.  there was a mix-up with the parts though (they ended up sending me the part for a PG-5 — see! they do exist for you! instead of a PG-11) so i ended up getting a replacement gocco all together… but yea, if you can’t get it off and you find that its affecting your screens afterwards… don’t worry, you CAN get a replacement 🙂

PS. try scraping the carbon off first though. we just used water, a bit of soap, sponge and like i said before… plenty of elbow grease. good luck!
