Re: Discoloration from water

I dont think your daughter did any damage bacause the water can not get into the set form the front unless the water went in thru the holes in the back,in that case water can cause a lot problems,it will dry but it will also damage some components,if the water went in from the back you need to take it somewhere to get it clean so it does not built up corrosion with time.Good luck.

My daughter just sprayed water on our Emerson 50" LED flat screen. It was showing a white vertical line and I can still hear sound. I unplugged it and used my hair dryer. Help!

Let it sit for a week or so. you have to give it enough time to completely dry out. TV electronics are very sensitive. If you try to operate it to soon it might do more damage. Be careful with the hair dryer as excessive heat will also damage the components.

My daughter just spayed water on our 52" Emerson led TV, the screen was showing a white vertical band on the right side and could still hear sound. I unplugged and used my hair dryer. Help!!

You may have to take the TV apart to get it dry. You may end up having to replace the screen if parts have been damaged by the water experience.

Plasma tv has sound but no picture was fine then red and black screen appeared image screen went black now only sound on tv

This is a common fault solution which can be checked and corrected by you assuming that there is no component failure. There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance.

The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on , If there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points.

Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up, if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault.

Based on the above method you must be able to locate the area of fault and solder the sections. Sometimes large IC's- ones with more pins- tend to have drying in some pins and so cause faults related to the IC's protocol. Have a rough idea of looking into the areas to reduce the time of probing.

My kid sprayed water on the tv. that night black ...

You could try to let the water dry out (it may have already), and hopefully the circles may go away or be less visible.

The problem may get worse if the water has damaged a board inside the TV.

For the next few days, I would not leave the TV plugged in if it is not being watched.

I hope this information has helped you.

Good Luck.

Hi, I have a Sony Bravia 52 in. LCD , my little girl put her hand on the screen and now you can see the print of her palm. Is there somthing we can use to clean that off ?? Thanks

If it's just a dirty palm print on the surface, you can clean it off with Windex or another spray glass cleaner. Spray the cleaner on a soft cloth and wipe the screen - do not spray the screen directly. This will prevent the cleaner from running down the screen into the unit.

On the other hand, if your daughter pressed hard enough on the screen to cause pressure damage to the display, the discoloration is permanent and you can't do anything about it. Some LCD's are made with a hard glass-like front surface and are fairly rugged, but others are softer plastic. Press too hard on those and you destroy the display at that point.
