You need to take the screen off the front. You will find the screen comes away from the frame and seperates into two sheets. The liquid is seeping inbetween the two. If you clean it with Meths it should sort it without marking it.

Can I get the screen clear if I have used the wrong cleaner


Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.

For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.

Picture has white strip down center,mostly black on rest of screen.child sprayed febreeze on screen,felt wetness on bottom of tv


Hi Lance,
This is the sad story of many a Flat Panel TV owners. You must never spray any liquid on the screen because it seeps through the frame, reaches the delicate electronics inside and causes permanent damage. Please let the TV dry up in the sun for some hours and see if there is any improvement. If it does not work I am afraid the damage is permanent. Last resort, you can ask some local Tech to open and try cleaning the seepage.
Good Luck.

Screen has been washed with window cleaning solution & now has a shadow


You probably used too much liquid and it has now seeped inbetween the display screen and the backlight panel.
You would have to fully dismantle the TV and Screen to do this (not recommended unless you know a lot about TV repair).
Some of the liquid might evaporate over time but it is not likely to return to it's original state.

Water got into my flatscreen tv. the volume plays but the screen is black. how can i fix this


You should never switch on any electronic device, when water seeps in! It can cause even explosion and human injury! If the temperature around can evaporate the water, just leave it idle for a few days. But remember to remove the plug from the power outlet. Alternatively, if you can remove the back cover, you can use a hair dryer and warm up the area where you suspect water has seeped in. But due care should be taken not to burn the PCB, plastic parts on the board or on the side. This is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

You can try to have it checked through a service technician but there is no guarantee that it will still work, it depends on how much damage it has.

Water seeping around fitting on back where water line fastens tp


Where does the water seep from?

The compression fitting you speak of is for the ice maker and through door water (if you have it.).

If water is on the floor, then chances are the drain pan underneath the unit has a hole in it, or for some reason, the water is not getting to the pan.

If water accumulates inside the freezer, check that the tube leading to the pan on the bottom of the refer is not clogged in some way.

If the water is in the refrigerator side, there may be a hole in the tank for the through the door water dispenser. It would leak everytime the icemaker dropped ice and refilled.

Liquid under screen on mitsudishi dlp tv


With a conventional projection type screen on CRT type televisions this is not a problem,but with the newer DLP type screens the fiber of the Fresnal screen acts like a spounge and soaks up any liquid introduced.If you try to clean it it will smear and make it worse.You can remove the screen assy an clean it with Windex but allow it to dry properly.I do not see a problem with cleaning this screen,but make sure you put the screens back the way they were.I must also note that it is no easy task removing this particular screen assy.Good luck
