Black blotch on bottom of screen

My two an a half year old got hold of pledge orange oil and tried to "clean" the TV screen. The oil dripped down and is trapped behind the screen. Now there is a black blotch at the bottom of the screen. What should I do?

If you can take the screen out , then use some dish soap,rag and water to clean the black blotch

if that don't work you may need to use something a little stronger , but not enough to hurt the screen
please rate a fixya and I'll be happy to assist you in the cleaning process and care of the screen

    you need to open up the back , make sure the cord is unplugged , once you get the screws out of the back of the unit you will have access to the screen , you may want to just see if cleaning the area with a damp rag helps ( no dripping of water inside the unit!) or use some(little bit)window cleaner to try and get the blotch out

    otherwise the next thing would be to take the screws out that hold the screen in place and take it out completely to give it a good cleaning. this process is much harder to do when it sometimes will require a couple of set of hands to reinsure no dammage to the screen

    try the other way first and if that is not satisfactory then you will need help in handling the screen durring the extraction process

Have a dark blotch on bottom right of screen. What is this? Transported in the rain and fear water got through carefully wrapped plastic. Help


It's possible the mirror has dome dust on it from jostling during the move. W dried water spot will do it too. The front screen will come off by removing the screws on the bezel. Be extremely careful cleaning the mirror.Any scratch by a cleaning cloth (never use paper) will permanently ruin it.

Hitachi 50" hd TV displaying black lines on screen


Sounds like your YBL-Y Buffer lower board is going out. There are 3 boards here. The Y buffer upper which controls the top half of the display, The Y buffer lower controls the bottom half and the Y-SUS main control those two boards. They work in unison. Usually if one goes out you have to replace all. You can also get lucky and just repalce the YBL and all may be well. Now if they are vertical lines up and down the OSD-On screen display, then this is indicitive on dry solder joints on the D, G E, F boards. Hope this helps...

Hitachi 57inch tv 4 years old has a black mark on the screen


Thanks for your reply. The only thing that causes marks like that is usually the glue that holds the lenticular screen and the fresnal lens together heats up and drips (or slides) down. There is usually a strip of black tape that seals the two pieces of thin, glass sheets. This allows for easier installation and keeps debris from getting between screen and lens, however, someone overlooked the elements of heat and aging on this tape.The screen and lens can either be replaced or disassembled and cleaned. They are very expensive, (a few hundred dollars each), and disassembly can be very tedious. One caution I must give you is to make sure if you seperate the screen and lens make sure they go back together facing the same way. Try to clean only with warm water and a few drops of a very mild cleanser like dawn. If all else fails, you can buy a used screen sometimes from a local factory authorized service center. Occasionally they save the ones that are in decent shape. I have one 57" screen here in cincinnati that would work. Good luck, Russmann.

Cleaning tv screen


Pledge has a solvent (maybe kerosene) that can damage plastics. I think it warns of use on plastic on the can. You may be able to buff the area with a plastics polish that is used on fiberglass tubs and showers. Try a small area first-

Dark Blotch on rear projection TV screen


usually these are caused by cleaning the screen with a damp cloth or fkuid rear projection tv's usually have two plastic screens separated by about quarter inch with bulbs between,one being a magnified screen.problem is,condensation can occur causing various blotches,letting the screens naturly dry out usually solves this but failing this you have to strip down and wipe them with clean dry cloth.be careful though the inside screen is very delicate.

Epson livingstation 45" tv


I just fixed the problem on my epson 57" living station. The picture is like new. Yo have to clean the dust off of the the 3 lcd lenses. (I'm not sure if thay are actually called lenses)
You can get to these by entering thru the front of the TV. Yes the front. You must remove the screen. There are A LOT of screws. This screen housing covers the entire front of the tv. and you have to remove the back panel and ALL the screws on the back of the tv to get it off. The only electronics that have to be disconnected are the Speakers and the front control panel. They both have snap connectors. After you remove the entire front panel which houses the screen and expose the inside mirror you will see more screws. You must remove those as well to remove the mirror housing. DO NOT REMOVE THE MIRROR FROM THE HOUSING. Note that there is a peg that is next to a screw in thre front of the mirror housing thst you must pull the plastic housing out in that area to release it.After you remove the mirror housing you will see the 3 LCD panels or lenses. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REMOVE ANY ELECTRONICS OR SCREWS AT THIS POINT. Use a can of compessed air to spray the dust out of this area. I used a vacume to catch the dust as it flew out in the air. Try to hold the can as upright as possible.Keep hitting it with the air until no more dust comes out. Put the tv back together. As you open up the tv you will see dust everywhere. I took the oppurtunity to clean as much as I could. The Mirror though was clean an I was afraid to touch it.

I am a Construction Salesman yet fairly handy. I have no electricle experience. This took me 2 1/2 hrs. I spent the first 45 min. trying to get to the lcd panels from the back of the tv. Don't waste your time. You can't.

Half a screen


The picture on your TV screen is driven from the center to the top and bottom of the screen by the vertical drive circuit. The fact that you can see the entire picture means you have a problem called foldover. This is caused by a failure in the vertical drive circuit where the vertical saw signal is altered by a component failure within the vertical drive circuit. You cannot solve this problem but any good repair shop should be able to correct the problem at a reasonable cost.
