Sorry about the late posting. The protective screen can be purchased from Tritronicsinc.com 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,
Dan

I am about to buy a used 60inch Mitsubishi big screen TV...there's a little scratch on the screen is this something that can be fixed easily?


No, if the screen is scratched it would have to be replaced---most are well over 100 in cost---if not too bad this should be a bargaining point to use---set not worth as much with scratched screen.

Out clear screen is protective only and anti glare as well.

Do not try to sand or buff it out--It will just make it look worse.

If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Scratch on the screen


Hello,

the screen cannot be repaired but it can be replaced.

In order to avoid seeing the scratch on your screen again, you have to change the screen completely.

It is not possible for a screen that has scratch to be repaired.

Good luck.

Screen has a little scratch there is sound but on picture with little thread lines coming form the scratch


you likely need a new tv. on the insides the audio pieces are a lot tougher than the delicate pieces that create the picture for you. if it was dropped and something hit it and it cracked losing your picture, I am pretty sure the tv is toast.

I have a 3 inch scratch on my plasma tv that happened in a move. I think it is a glass screen. Is there any way to cover or fill this scratch. It isn't very deep but it bugs me that I can see it.


You must determine whether or not the scratch is on a protective fromt screen or the panel itself. I don't know your specific model, but some of the LGs have a front glass behind which is the actual panel. If that is the case with yours, you can replace the front glass. If it is only the panel, then there is no way to repair other than replacing the panel which is VERY expensive.

If you wish to try something, go to a local auto parts store and purchase a windshield repair kit. This will contain an optically transparent epoxy that can fill in the scratch and make it at least less noticable similar to filling a scratch or crack on a windshield.

Repaire scratches on a lcd flat screen


The eraser method is even better than I first thought.
I acquired my first scratch some weeks back, tried the eraser method, and was quite pleased with the results, as my scratch was approx. 80% less visible, a faint grey line visible only on very light or dark coloured backgrounds, instead of the glaring black line it was at first.
Today my monitor toppled again (I really must tether the damn thing to something next time) creating - gulp - a new and even larger scratch. Oh, no... But whodathunk I'd end up happy I got the 2nd scratch? Oddly, I am happy, 'cause I took the opportunity to lay the monitor flat, take my white eraser again , and really go to town rubbing both new & old scratches. Lo & behold, both scratches appear to be now virtually 100% invisible or gone. My 2-scratch monitor is better now than it was as a one scratch one! I'm now convinced it's partly, largely, or completely due to the heat from friction of rubbing the eraser across the scratch, plus pressure applied, that does the trick. The heat must soften the plastic surface making it malleable, and the pressure of rubbing smooths out the jagged scratch edges, making the scratches disappear.
-So, if at first your eraser doesn't completely eliminate your scratch, try, try again! Keep working on it - harder!faster! And with luck, you'll get results like mine: complete elimination of two ugly scratches!

Sratches on tv screen


Try toothpaste first. take a cuetip, get a little on it, and rub in circles, if it's a longer scratch you can just use your finger. Rub in a circular motion for a few minutes. Clean it off with smooth cloth or tissue paper lightly moistened. Make sure that it's a very soft cloth or you can scratch it further.

the other thing to try is a product called scratch-out for cars. It removes scratches from the polymer clear-coat of cars. follow the directions carefully, (rub on, let dry, rub off with clean cloth), if it doesn't work, you are no worse off.

Lcd tv scratched


One really cheap and quick fix is to gently rub a little vaseline into the scratch, then even more gently rub off the excess, in the direction of the scratch. Oftentimes, though still visible when the screen is off, the scratch will virtually disappear when the display is on. An alternative method is to use white candle wax, which has been allowed to cool on the tip of a cotton swab. If this does not work, a fine rubbing compound can remove the scratch for real, assuming it is not too deep.

Removal of Scratches on TV Screen


you can try toothpaste. use on the scratched areas in a circular motion for around 5 minutes. This can reduce, and remove scratches from plastic, and even glass. Wipe of with a clean soft fabric or tissue paper lightly moistened.

Another solution is scratch-out. Which is used to repair spiderweb scratches in the clearcoat on automobiles. This is a polymer coating on cars. Your screen is also a polymer. follow the directions carefully, and don't get too aggressive with it. If it doesn't work, what you lost?

The poster above is obviously inexperienced with this type of thing.
