Re: scratched tv screen

I replaced the screen on my 62 inch projection TV for about $50 and the the picture quality is good! Have a sheet of plexiglass cut to the EXACT size needed. BEFORE installation it MUST be frosted on both sides by either a fine particle sandblaster or by sanding it VERTICALLY on BOTH sides with a power sander and a fine grade paper.
If this is only an OUTER protective screen and the image is projected on the inner screen then DO NOT frost the replacement screen, just install it.

Re: scratched tv screen

Is there a flat plastic protective outer screen? If so then replacing that piece is less expensive then the lenticular lens(vertical lines on it), which would be at least double(depends if it comes with the fresnel lens or not). There's no good way to repair the scratch either way other than replacing the scratched piece. A light surface only scratch might be buffed out with little distortion to the picture. What you could do is get a special protective screen instead of replacing the outer screen(in case thats the only piece thats damaged), it might be a little more expensive, but worth it if you have kids, pets, or good parties planned. All options should be ~150$ and upwards. Good luck

that is a good idea, but expensive.

if the screen is that bad, you may want to try with some commercial available polish for glass or plastic, like plast-x. you can get that in any auto parts store or your local walmart...

Scratch Screen

Sorry about the late posting. The protective screen can be purchased from using the part number KR2074. This will cost $80.36 plus shipping. This should be a straightforward replacement. The instructions are included with the screen.

Hope this helps,

I have a 50 inch big screen hdtv and i am moving i want to know can i lay my tv down flat?

Yes you can lay it down flat on its screen just make sure it is padded so the screen doesnt get scratched. I transport projection units this way all the time even DLPs however do not transport LCD or plasma units in this manner as thats not recomended.

Tv screen scratches

If this is the clear smooth screen, yes you can go to your local glass & paint store & have a new protective screen cut for that size. If this is the screen with thin lines etched in it from top to bottom..vertically is the Lenticular lens & no there is no way to repair, you must replace, with new or used. Go to ebay under projection tv parts see if you can locate someone having your size for sale & bid on it or email them to outright purchase it.
