If this is just the shiny "screen protector" on the tv, then yes, you can just use a peice of plexiglass or acrylic..

My Samsung frontload washer has detergent trapped on the front Plexiglas. It seems to be between two pieces of Plexiglas because I cant clean it with a rag on the outside or the inside your thoughts


it probably just ran down from the soap box, the door is in 2 halves held together by tiny clips and about 10 large screws on the inside of the door, if you really want to clean it just remove all the screws then pry the 2 plastics halves apart (it will resist a fair bit as the tiny clips on the inside will hang on once the screws are out) the whole door will come off and you can remove the glass and clean it

My son hit the tv with a wii control. The tv screen now has a "cracked" look to it and a lot of lines going down the screen. Is there anything we can do to fix this?


Hello; Your LCD panel is cracked. The new panel if even available will cost more than the set sells for. Some people buy these sets to harvest parts, but don't expect much. The cracked sets are everywhere and often go to the dump. On your next set, put a 1/8" piece of clear Plexiglas over screen. John

The diamond shield has been damaged and looking for a replacement


you can get a cheap replacement protective screen at a local plastics company. you will have to cut it yourself with a cut-off wheel and dremel. or you can have them cut it for you. the original protective screen is to expensive to worry about at this age of the set. check the yellow pages for a local supplier for plexiglas/clear plastics 1/8" or 3/32" clear its cheap!!! and all you need is a phillips head screwdriver to replace it.after you remove the speaker grill there are 4 screws on the bottom of the screen frame. then you lift the frame straight up and it comes out. inside there are brackets holding the screen in place. be very careful not to damage the screen.

THE SCREEN ON THE PANASONIC PT-53WX42F CRACKED WHILE MOVING IT


Depending on how bad, there are many layers of screen, if the outer layer is smooth and does not have ridges you can use a piece of Plexiglas to replace that. although glare may be more prevalent with a Plexiglas replacement. if the outer layer has ridges or more than one layer is broken there is not much you can do yourself. The screen from the manufacturer is cost prohibitive to replace. But if you have a local tv repair shop they may have a junk one, that they can sell you for a reasonable price. If it is just a small corner it might be better not to do anything at all, when you watch a tv it is the middle of the tv you watch and the corners are hardly noticeable under normal tv watching, although it may bother some people that the crack exists it actually may not cause you much discomfort watching the tv.

My panasonic pt47x42f has scratches in the screen. Can the screen be replaced?


If your screen has little ridges in it then not without great cost, but if it is smooth, then you can use a piece of Plexiglas, the replacement is delicate because you can damage the other screen layers when replacing the outer screen.

Tv lcd screen got knocked know a red line and a dark patch is getting bigger across screen


You have damaged the LCD Display, the cost of those are close to the cost of a new set. One day the manufacturers will put a safety screen on the front like the older projection sets had to protect those screens. When I sell a lcd set I always recommend to the customer to have a piece of Plexiglas installed over the front, especially if it's for the kids room. Of coarse it's a DIY project.

Hi there
You can clean the screen with antistatic wipes or just a clean damp cloth, don't use any chemical fluids on the screen or you will damage it and turn it milky white, and you can clean it while its on.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Crack on screen, tv working good couple mounths old (LG 32LC5DC), how much to repair it?


The screen has a Plexiglas protector over the actual screen. If that is all that is cracked you can go to the hardware and have them cut a piece of Plexiglas the same size. an It's fixed much cheaper the ordering a factory replacement.
