Removal of Scratches on TV Screen

Hi, I have got 3 small scratches on the TV screen by mistake, during a house move. Although they dont hinder the viewing much while watching, but it will be really nice if I can get rid of them somehow. I have heard that there are some pastes that you can rub in to get rid of the scratches. I dont want to take any chances as I really like the TV and would love to continue using it. If anyone can please tell me how I can get rid of these scratches in any way it will be excellent. Thank you

Re: 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.

Is it possilble to repair a scratched lcd tv screen

Typically, all lcd screens have a protective film coating that is scratched is not the matrix. If the scratches are not deep you can try them polished tool for polishing cd drive. If you scratch deeper and you will not be able to remove them yourself, contact a service center to replace the protective cover the screen it will cost a low price

Sctratch on screen

Hi haydenjessa6,

Instead of toothpaste (although it will leave TV set minty fresh) go to your local glass shop. You know the place; where they replace windshields and sell windows and mirrors. They will have a powder polish that you can use and might only charge you a small fee for a small amount. You might find it at a local jeweler as well. Ask for "jewelers rouge" or "polishing rouge". Mix it one part to one part water and one part glycerin and use the polishing wheel on a roto-tool (Dremel).

Another product to try is an automotive polishing compound such as Dupont 7.

Of course all of this is assuming that this is a glass screen and not a plastic screen on a projection TV. Remember that if the scratch is too deep no amount of polishing will remove it...

Good luck,

How to fix a big scratch on a projection tv screen

Is it the screen itself or the protective screen that is scratched. If it's the protective screen, then you can just remove that, but be warned the lenticular screen is now prone to scratches from kids, dogs or a clumsy significant other. But if you feel comfortable with no one bumping into it, then you can remove the protective screen and actually get a better picture quality with no glare.

If it's the actual lenticular screen (one behind the protective screen) then your in trouble and it will cost a pretty penny to get fixed. You can switch it out yourself once you buy a new one, but have two people handy, the instructions on how to replace should be in the owners manual.

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.

Thick plastic film covering glass screen got deeply scratched while moving

Hi there!
I would simply replace the plastic sheeting. Will certainly be cheaper than replacing a tube. Glass tvs don't normally come with this plastic so leave it off if you can remove it. There is a type of spray on the market for this purpose, just don't know if available in your country. Please note: It is dangerous to use a tv which had been scratched beyond 1.5mm, The glass may become unstable and implode if bumped by accident. Good Luck,JUS004

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.

The TV is only showing half of the picture

Hi Bigtate,

There is not much for me to go on with your description but here goes,

I suppose you have a convential TV set with a glass picture tube and not one of the new types with the large screen slim style displays!!!

If it a glass type picture tube then the following assumptions are made.

I hope yopu have not shifted house recently and moved the TV around???
If you have its possible the Yoke (its a device on the neck of the Picture tube that controls magnetically the scanning dot) may have moved and only is letting you see half a picture...
This is a long shot but it could be the cause..

Now the picture is supplied to you by a fast moving dot of light (Black & White set) that scans from the top of the picture and moves very fast down to the bottom of the screen, then flys back to the top of the screen and starts all over again during this process the dot lights up the picture tube to provide you with
the picture you see... (On a colour set there are three dots)

Its quite a complex process and its all controlled by electronics inside the TV receiver.

If you are getting only half a picture then something is causing the dot to only turn on for the lower half of the picture during its write time to the glass screen,

You dont say if the half thats off is white or black, so there are many things that the service technician needs to know before even starting to look for this fault. During the dot doing its write cycle down the sceen, when it reachs the bottom and flys back to the top of the screen it receives a synchronous pulse from the TV station, and this TV signal is critical in making sure you see the same picture as is being sent from the TV station.
Sometimes this sync pulse from the TV station is very weak and so your picture may float up and down the screen trying to lock to the incoming signal.. this just may be your fault.. but you dont say if the half of the picture that you see is floating or not..
Your situation may be that your TV has partially locked to the station signal and your aerial may be problematic,
but then you dont say if its on just the one channel or all of your station channels. So there needs to be more analysis of your situation prior to a positive answer being provided....

Sorry I can be of more help...

TV Scratch

You can probable conceal the scratches but a complete repair is not possible,I've seen people who repair cracks in windshields using a special compound that dries clear but even that only conceals the scratches.I hope the scratches are not too deep and you can hardly see them when the set is on.
