I was cleaning my screen when i must have leaned too hard on one spot(it wasnt that hard) but must have been hard enough to crack it. Ive already got a new lcd on its way and ive contacted Lg uk about this and they informed me that there might be a replacement part for this . I dont know what part they are talking about but i may be under the false pretence that you can remove the glass cover thats covering the lcd and hey presto fixed. Its still under warranty as its less than one year old but they told me that since i broke it its not their problem. I understand this as i turned it off cleaned it on a flat surface and then turned it on to find it cracked so its not their fault and so i dont know what to do. ho hum. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Its about an inch in diameter and heres a link to view http://img243.imageshack.us/img243/5606/photo0012ki4.jpg

Re: Cracked While Cleaning
I did that to a Toshiba laptop long ago, happens to the best of us. I think they?re referring to the LCD panel itself not a piece of glass you can replace. Usually the outer layer you can touch is a plastic/vinyl layer that covers the outer glass layer. Behind that is another sheet of glass and sandwiched in-between is the liquid crystal material. All of this is bound together as one unit and not repairable.

Use a bristle brush, If there are any spots that have heavy dust or dirt caked in, use a stiff-bristled brush to break up the spots and vacuum up the released dirt. Rub vigorously, but not hard enough to damage the fabric.
Try cleaning the carby out such as cleaning the bowl and the jets then flush it all with petrol because if it started with the choke on then stopped when u take it of it means its not getting enough fuel and the back fire could be a lean back fire.
Disconnect the power to your TV before you clean it each time. Choose either lukewarm water or a cleaning solution to clean your TV.
Commercial cleaning kits that include both a cloth and cleaning solution
are available. These cleaning solutions are specially formulated to
clean flat screen TVs and monitors safely and are specifically labeled
safe for "laptop screen" or "LCD screen." If you wish to use a solution,
you must use one of these.Dampen a soft cloth (preferably chamois, micro fiber or 100 percent
cotton) with either the lukewarm water or cleaning solution. Just a
gentle wiping of the screen is enough. Rubbing, scrubbing and hard
pressure can damage the screen.
You will have to remove the screws around the top and sides of the screen in the back. The screws should be 7/64" allen key. I took the protection screen off of mine because I don't have kids or animals. I would clean the plexiglass layer after removing it from the TV. If you get any bit of the cleaning solution on the freznel lens it will leave a very noticable spots that you have to work hard to get off. Good Luck!
If I got the issue correct your dishwasher has stopped cleaning properly.
As advised by an Frigidaire engineer that there is not enough salt in the dishwasher & that is what causes the sand like residue on dishes. sometimes even when you use an all in 1 dishwasher tablet this may still not contain enough salt for the hardness of the water in your area. Using salt regular helps keep the dishwasher clean.
If you go to turn on your laptop and loads to your os and the spots on the screen remain there then most likely you have ruptured the liquid crystals in the screen by pressing too hard when you were cleaning the screen with the computer off.
you could lightly touch the black spots with your finger and if it displaces the black with a white halo effect around your finger (DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD OR WITH FINGERNAILS DIRECTLY ON THE SCREEN) then it will mean that you will have to replace the screen because it has busted the crystals definately.
I think your dish washer is starting to go out. We have a Kenmore dish washer (unsure if the model is the same), it started with not cleaning the dishes well to not sanitizing and now it doesnt dry. We are actually replacing ours today. We we noticed that it wasnt cleaning properly (water spots, or not rinsing well) we too added Jet Dry thinking that that would solve it. We soon discovered that it didnt help at all. Hope this helps you.
You have to be careful when cleaning HDTV screens- some (like LCDs) are sensitive to pressure and should you press hard enough you could effectively crush the electronics in that part of the screen and turn them into an irreversible black spot.
Personally, when I have to clean my screens, I buy commercial screen cleaner and a pack of disposable lint free cloths. Spray the cleaner on the screen, then wipe it with the cloth. Don't use a lot of spray (one pump at a time) and make sure you do this when the screen is off and let it dry completely (about 1-5 min) before turning it back on.
NEVER EVER EVER SCRAPE ANYTHING OFF A FLAT PANEL SCREEN OF ANY TYPE!!
