Vaseline Method

  1. Clean the screen
  2. Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
  3. Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
  4. Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.

Pencil Eraser Method
  1. 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.
  2. Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
  3. Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears
Neither is a perfect fix but does help alot

Scratches on Sony Bravia kdl-52w4100 screen cause white specs that never go away. Can this be fixed?


If the screen is scratched it will need to be replaced, so yes it can be fixed but it will be expensive. If you have nothing to lose you could try reducing the effect of the scratches by polishing across them gently with fine jewellers rouge, try a corner first as it might completely ruin the screen. Not too much pressure as you will damage screen further

How to fix scratches on lcd tv screens what is the best way to fix scratches on a sony kdl52xbr6 tv screen or do I contact Sony directly


If there deep scratches you need to replace the outter layer and that could get expensive. Now if there small scratches a lcd repair kit would work. You can get those on line for the fraction of the replacment of the lcd screen.

Replacement screen


You aren't gonna find one new, they aren't sold as parts. Try repair shops.
But it would be easier (and maybe cheaper) just to buy a new tv.

MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS JUST SCRATCHED MY SONY BRAVIA TV WITH A MAGNA DOODLE PEN. HOW CAN I GET RID OF THE SCRATCHES?


Clean the surface of the LCD screen with a barely damp cloth.
  • Step 2 Dry the screen with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Step 3 Rub a generous amount of petroleum jelly into the scratch using a cotton swab. The petroleum jelly should fill in the scratch and remain there.
  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • This scratch repair method is effective because of optical density. The optical density of petroleum jelly matches the plastic, LCD screen coating more closely than that of air.
  • To avoid future scratches or gouges, you might consider purchasing a LCD screen protector. These screen protectors are generally made of a thin, plastic film and affix to the screen without adhesives. Not only can they protect against scratches, but they also keep the screen free of dirt, oil and dust while simultaneously reducing glare.
  • When wiping the screen as described Step 4, avoid pressing too hard or you will inadvertently remove the petroleum jelly from inside the scratch.
  • Using petroleum jelly to fill a scratch on your LCD screen could void your screen's warranty. If you are concerned about warranty issues, consult your user's manual for more information.

    It can be replaced, but it is probably going to cost you more then the cost of a new TV to do it.

    You should have a 1 year warranty from Sony. Call them before it expires. This is probably a LCD panel issue.

    Scratched Sony LCD screen


    The cost of replacing the screen (it is the entire LCD panel) is more than the TV is worth
