How do i touch up paint on the frame of my vizio tv?
My vizio m series has a silver frame and some of the paint has chipped off exposing a white layer underneath the silver paint. is it better to try and match the paint and touch up or is there a better solution to just making it look uniform?

Go to a "big box" retailer and get some sample strips that approximate the color. Take the strips home and find the best match for Satina. Return to the store and purchase a sample of the actual paint. Take it home and touch up the handle.
Go to any paint store that sells auto paint and have it matched up. I had them match up my faded Cougar and it was a perfect match, bought one qt no problem. I don't know the paint codes, but they have them. Hope this helps.
1.Open the first image. 2.Open the image you want to merge or mix with the first image or border. 3.Press Ctrl + A to select the entire image. 4.Press Ctrl + C to copy the selected image. 5.Click in the title bar of the image you opened first. 6.Press Ctrl + V to paste the second image over the first image. 7.If the Layer window is not displayed press theF7 function on your keyboard. 8.Make sure the top layer is highlighted or click on the layer to highlight it.
You should see the border around the image. If you want to hide part of the top image at the bottom lower left of the layer window you will see rectangle with circle which displays add layer mask when you hover the mouse cursor over it. Hold the Alt key and click on the Add Layer Mask Icon. This will hide the top image until you select the brush with a white color and paint the layer mask layer. The Layer Mask is the black rectangle next to the layer image which must have the white rectangle around it when painting with the brush. If you do not see the top image mixing with the bottom image make sure the black rectangle is selected or click on the black rectangle to select it.If the layered image is selected you will be painting it white and alter the image. If you revile part of the image when painting the mask you can hide it by changing the brush color to black and painting the reviled layer to hide it again.Layer masks are very powerful which you will need to look up in the help files for more information to gain full power of the tool.
How much work as opposed to riding do you want to do? Pens are not the best choice but when you consider the time and money involved with prepping and painting for an invisible repair then they look much better. If you use a pen there are a couple things you can do to improve the end results. First, wet sand the chipped area. The idea is to smooth the edges of the chip. Second, Clean it then before you use any paint, build up a couple layers of primer. Primer is better at filling and will not shrink as much. Finally make sure that the area is as clean as possible. Then apply your paint. Don't be afraid to go higher then the surrounding paint. You will wet sand it again. Now depending on what kind of paint it is you will either touch it up with some clear or buff it out. Make sure you allow plenty of time between coats for drying. Good Luck.
The touch screen is a 4 wire resistive type made up of several layers. A thin plastic layer, a micro thin metal layer, microdots for insulators, another ultra thin metal layer, and a final plastic layer. All of these layers amount to the thickness of a sheet of paper. This whole stack is bonded to a thin sheet of glass and placed over the actual TFT display.
It's amazing that you can see through all these layers and only lose 20% of the light. What's not so amazing is that those thin metal layers are prone to damage. I've seen several with no apparent damage that didn't work, and several with visible scratches or cuts that worked fine.
I usually start by installing (or reinstalling) v7.2 firmware and then attempt to recalibrate the screen, sometimes that works. Next I would try re-seating the 4 conductor touch screen pigtail in it's ZIF socket nestled between the big white wires on the display assembly. The last resort is to buy a broken 2600 or 2700 series Garmin and salvage the touch screen. You could send it to Garmin for a flat $250, but that makes no sense at all.
If you get another screen (Garmin won't sell you one), Here's how to replace it: Remove the six screw holding the case together. Split the cases and pull the patch antenna out of it's slot. Remove the four silver screws holding the display assembly into the front bezel. Unhook the small ribbon cable that goes to the infrared receiver under the red lens. Pull the display assembly out of the front bezel. It won't come all the way out because of cables. Use a razor to cut the plastic tape holding the touch screen bracket to the TFT display. Unlatch the 4 conductor ribbon from the ZIF connector nestled between the 2 big white wires. Use a penknife to unbend the metal tabs keeping the touch screen from coming loose. I usually just do the two by the IR receiver.
When you reassemble, don't get frustrated with the gaskets, they're tricky but it can be done. Tom
