If u have a LCD your polarizer is scratched and there is not much u can do too it just wipe with a damp cloth try and not to add to much pressure you can damage LCD. Plasma on the other hand have a glass plate filter in front of PDP. its a glass with a layer of EMI film on both sides of glass to protect you from glare and (electo magnetic interference with other electronics emmiting from plasma panel) just remember its a plastic film thats can be scratched and not just glass. If u want to order a replacement for a plasma its possible. LCD its not except if u plan on replacing the plasma panel.

I would try a clearcoat wax in a corner of one of the scratches to see if it would revitalize and fill the area.

Most of the time you dont but I know some plasma sets have a sheild in the front of the screen. Im not sure if this one does but Im hoping for your sake it does. ontact Panasonic at the site posted here to see if theres a replacement safty screen for your model. Or Call 1 800-211-pana. and remember dont clean your screens with a rough sponge.

Posted on Mar 26, 2006

You could possibly polish the scratch with lexen or polycarbonate ultra fine scratch remover.

Walmart sells a glass scratch repair kit for $8 called Quixx, it's in auto by waxes. Worked great when I scratched my 36inch tv with a dolly while moving it upstairs. Took some rubbing but the 6 inch rusty scratch is gone!

Went to buy nu finish but this was next to it

Posted on Jun 04, 2008

If the fron of the unit is glass and some modules did not have safty screen look on the web for a glass polisher. its done with a buffer on a high speed drill with a polishing compound worked great for me and only cost me $11.00

Things You’ll Need:

* Television screen cleaning products
* Cleaning schedule
* Microfiber cleaning cloth

Clean Your HDTV Screen Properly
Step1
Read the warning labels on all your household cleaning products. Even glass cleaners might not be suitable for use on an HDTV screen, so check the manufacturer's warnings before you apply anything to the screen.
Step2
Keep chemical cleaners away from your HDTV on cleaning day. The harsh chemicals found in most common cleaning products will actually cause more harm than good.
Step3
Leave liquid cleaners under your sink when cleaning your HDTV screen. A liquid cleaner, whether it be water or a chemical cleaner, will drip down the screen and work its way into the interior of the TV, causing damage to your HDTV. You will be able to easily recognize when this happens, because your screen will develop smudges.
Step4
Use a cloth to clean the HDTV screen. Ideally, you should use a cloth that is recommended for HDTV screens, computer screens and other electronics. The word "microfiber" may be imprinted on the packaging.
Step5
Wet the microfiber cloth slightly. Just a hint of dampness is all you need. If water runs out of the cloth, then it's too wet and will cause smudges.
Step6
Develop a regular cleaning schedule for your HDTV screen. If you dust the screen daily, or at least several times a week, with your microfiber cloth, no other maintenance should be necessary. Not only will frequent cleanings make caring for your HDTV easier, but they will also enhance your viewing experience.
Step7
Prevent messes by asking family members and guests not to touch the television screen. You should also try to make sure children with sticky fingers do not come in contact with the screen.
Step8
Use a high-end cleaning product if you feel that regular dusting is not sufficient. Top-of-the-line television cleaning products are ideal for use on all HDTV screens, plasma screens, projectors and are safe to use around children and animals.

SOURCE: how to repair a scratched plasma tv screen?

Since the screen is very thin, it is very difficult to do even buffing. Contact the service providers for any solution. My guess is you may have to replace the display. In that case, it is better to wait for a major defect in the TV.

Screen damage from Panasonic Viera TV


Hi
There is a solution. If you brought this to my shop I would replace the film (depending upon availability). Absolute worst case is replacing the screen (costly). Of course this is my shop, you'll need to take it to a reputable repair person. Sorry

My plasma tv has several really deep scratches on the screen, how can i go about repairing this?


There are liquid solutions for filling LCD scratches
it's basically a plastic material that fills the scratch.

Big scratches are more of a problem. I am assuming that your
Plasma screen has a glass surface and that it's only scratched,
not physically broken. You may also try glass polishing compounds
for filling and polishing chipped windshields. Be careful, try it on a small spot first to make sure that you don't dissolve any plastic anti-reflection coatings etc.

Good luck

Scratches on the tv, please help


If by scratches, you mean dark pencil thin lines running across the screen horizontally, then you could have a bad display. If it's under 3 years old it "could" still be in warranty. Otherwise, a new set is probably in order for you.
