How to polish a plastic touchscreen surface?

I've tried using plastic polish, metal polish, toothpaste with no luck. The scractches are reasonably deep since I can feel them with my nail and some of them are affecting the image displayed on the screen.

Should I use different grades of sandpaper? The finish should obviously be ultra smooth.

As you have mentioned that the scratches have gone really deeply, i think you would not be able to remove those scratches completely let alone making them lighter.
What you can try is, what i did with my iPhone 3 was using a glass cleaning solution, just spray a bit on the screen and wipe it with a clean soft cloth.
The scratches i had on my device were not so deep, so it got lighter to much greater extent. In your case i am quite skeptical. But there is not harm in trying it out.

If tooth paste doesn't work for you then try this. Apply liquid furniture cleaner to the scratched area. Depending on the scratched item, you may to apply the liquid furniture cleaner directly to a soft cloth rather than directly on the scratches. Polish the scratches with the cloth and buff them out. Also try Applying plastic polish to a soft cloth. Polish and buff out the scratches, using circular motions, for 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat as necessary. * moderator edit spam link removed *
