scratch on the front panel, how do we repair. Does it have to be replaced?


Scratches aren't an easy or inexpensive fix. However, if, like most appliances, your's has a protective clear coat on it, you can try using a small applicator (like a Q-tip swab, etc.) and a very, very light amount of clear lacquer and lightly dab it onto the scratch and quickly wipe off the excess with a clean, lint free, cloth.

You can buy a can of clear aerosol lacquer that closely matches the type of finish on the fidge panels, (matte, satin, gloss).

The trick is to NOT spray directly onto the panels, but rather spray a small amount into the cap of the aerosol and using the swap, dip it into the liquid and, again, dab it lightly onto the scratch.

Another option is to purchase one of those automotive scratch repair kits that you see advertised on TV or in auto parts stores and follow the directions for fixing the scratch.

If you take your time and go lightly and carefully with the application, you can get a pretty decent repair that will make the scratch all but disappear. If it's also dented, then you've got another issue to deal with, but in any event, attempting a repair of the scratch will cost you hundreds of dollars less than buying a replacement door panel.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How do I fix a deep scratch on the screen, it is a wide scratch,maybe like a small toothpik size, when black background is on, it shows as a white scratch, I have tried vasoline, but it does not fill in the scratch. Any other things I can do?


Unfortunately there isn't anything you can do. The LCD surface itself has been physically damaged and no longer works properly. This isn't simply a scratch. The only solution is to replace the display panel, and they are nearly impossible to find unless you are an authorized servicer working on a warranty repair. There are companies that sell parts removed from sets, but most sets are junked because of bad displays. Since the display is the single most expensive part, if you can find one it may not cost much more just to replace the TV. There's always a sale going on somewhere, and many online vendors as well.

Scratches in my LCD Television Screen (sony bravia) How will I fix this?


Easiest solution is the stuff you buy to fix your glasses with (Lens cpr), so long as it's a small scratch. Larger scratches don't try to fix you can damage the screen further. 

Other solutions (though I recommend only at your own risk)
Vaseline Method
Clean the surface of the screen.
Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.


Pencil Eraser Method
Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor.
Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears [1].

Scratch on LCD screen of the monitor


Unfortunately, most lcd panels have a polarization filter in the front, this looks like a plastic coating that is actually in front of the glass of the lcd panel, if it's scratched, there is no real way to fix this problem other than replacement.

thick plastic film covering glass screen got deeply scratched while moving


Hi there!
I would simply replace the plastic sheeting. Will certainly be cheaper than replacing a tube. Glass tvs don't normally come with this plastic so leave it off if you can remove it. There is a type of spray on the market for this purpose, just don't know if available in your country. Please note: It is dangerous to use a tv which had been scratched beyond 1.5mm, The glass may become unstable and implode if bumped by accident. Good Luck,JUS004
