The screen is not plastic.

STOP
Before trying to clean the spot ,try the chemical on a small corner that does not matter , and see if the chem does not etch the surface. then proceed.
I would take another piece of glass and experiment on that first . especially with hot solvents.
MEK and alcohol are pretty common for pen ink .

Hairspray will remove printer ink from clothing; I don’t see why it can’t be used on the screen as well. My wife just used it to remove printer ink that got on a pair of jeans and it worked well after several treatments, each time more printer ink came off when hairspray was applied to the area.
