Question about Sony KDF46E2000 46" Projection HDTV
When my back was turned today for a few minutes today my 5 year old Granddaughter decided to do some house cleaning with the bottle of Windex and a cloth. She not only did the coffee table and glass tables but she also sprayed and sprayed and sprayed the front of my 46" LCD monitor which subsequentially ran to the bottom of the screen and sat in three puddles along the bottom,behind the face plate. Right now I have three large black ( liquid) splotches along the bottom.,and underneath of the glarescreen., I'm hoping they will dry out, but what it really needs is for the cover to come off this monitor ( large plastic face plate over the LCD screen under neath) so it can be cleaned or repaired properly. Anyone had a situation like this? Can it dry by itself? Is the cover readily easy to come away from the housing?
Thanks for your kind words and suggestions.., It turned out,, That after 12 days it finally cleared totally away and I now have no spots., or black spots. It started to disappear after a couple of days but took more than 10 days to appear to be evaporating..

That's not the worst that can happen, imagine what smoke can do! I hope it didn't seep further into the set.
There are two screens sandwiched together which is why the puddles formed. Now the real problem is that they can be easily damaged if separated and slide the least little bit. One has a very fine fresnel pattern that looks like a giant thumb print if held up to the light by itself. This is the one that always gets damaged by fingernails or touching anything else. Oh, you do need a carpet, dust, pet and human hair free room so the static doesn't cling to the panels as you tape them back together after cleaning. You have to get the panels back together with the right sides facing each other and in the proper orientation or your picture will suffer and you will have to figure out how you went wrong.
Forget ordering a set of these panels as the cost is pretty steep and you still have to deal with knowing how to properly orient them, as it isn't intuitive. Even the trained techs dread this particular job because the fresnel panel is so easy to damage or you wind up with lint or hair between the panels. So if you're thinking you'll leave the job to the professionals, realize through no fault of their own, even they have problems replacing the panels.
Wow, you're still reading?!
No easy fix here, see what happens over time as the solution evaporates. If you don't like what you see, this is your opportunity to pitch for a new flat panel LCD TV! Your granddaughter will make a fine wife some day, by then projection will go the way of 8 tracks. ;-) Teach her to use only LCD cleaner on a microfiber cloth for all the electronics as windex or ammonia products can yellow plastics.
