Cracked While Cleaning

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

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.

It is very possible that the LCD is damaged. If the screen was pressed hard enough it can cause the components to become damaged. Repairing monitors is a lot more expensive then buying a new one unfortunately. You probably could get a 22inch monitor for under $180.

What do i clean the screen with?

Cleaning is simple. Vacuum the rear vents to remove any dust that has built up.

For screen and the fascia, -

1. Unplug the monitor from the power supply.
2. Fill a bowl with warm water with some washing up liquid - just as you would to clean dirty dishes. Soak a soft clean cloth in the water (Kitchen cloth - NONE ABRASIVE!! and not a sponge!), and wring the cloth out so that it is damp (not wet!) and gently wash the screen. When finished use kitchen roll to dry off the monitor.
3. Stubborn marks on the LCD, using the same damp cloth, apply a spot of neat washing up liquid to the cloth. Clean as before - DO NOT PRESS on screen. When finished, use kitchen roll as before.

Green flickering pixel at certain point on screen

I read up on this awhile back, and it is probably bad pixels in the display screen. The display screen is controlled by tiny transistors (tft for thin film transistor). Sometimes they can come from the manufacturer bad, they say, but they can also go bad if you apply too much pressure when cleaning the screen (use the moist screen type cleaners- you can buy them at any computer store- Best Buy, Walmart, etc). If the screen gets bumped too hard, they can be damaged also.
There is nothing you can do in this case to fix it, aside from replacing the whole display. It's conceivable that the driver could have a bad feed to the display screen, and in that case would have to be replaced, but you would probably be better off buying a new computer, in that case. Most likely it's just a bad "spot" on the screen, and although annoying, won't hurt anything if you can live with it. Hope this helps!

The best way is to buy a special microfibre cleaning cloth for LCD monitors. Very often the same cloths are used to clean sunglasses so you may already have one of those. Do not use any cleaning liquid. Rub the screen very GENTLY with the cloth until the prints are gone. You can rub fast but remember not to press too hard or you can damage your monitor.

My samsung 245 monitor needs cleaning and accumulates black spots all over. How would I clean that? I tried rubbing them off with a soft cloth, but only spread them

Either buy a monitor cleaning cloth, or use a soft cloth with a little bit of lighter fluid. The lighter fluid will evaporate, so don't worry about getting it off after you're done.

Black spots on the screen

I think you should try going to the store and checking if your monitor is still under warrenty. From the description, I think it is beyond repair.

Faint white spots on macbook pro lcd screen

If the spots remain in the same place I'm sorry to say no. Be careful what you clean the screen with. I'm a fan of a warm wet damp only rag. Using alcohol or other cleaners may damage the surface. There are also cleaners available at local stores. You don't need anti-static on an LCD display. The spots can be from pressure on the display applied at some point even if that pressure happens when closing or transpoting your laptop.There is no way to fix it.
