There are 2 possibilities that may work. I can't state for sure as I don't know the make and model.

1) Some sets have a protective front "glass" that resides in front of the actual panel. That protective sheet can be replaced.

2) If it is the panel itself, the repalcement cost will likely be more than replacing the entire set. You can try using a windshield repair kit to fill in the scratch. Since the material contained in that kit is optically the same as glass, the scratch should be filled in and not be quite as obvious. This may not make the scratch completely disappear, but it should help.

Good luck,

Scratches on Sony Bravia kdl-52w4100 screen cause white specs that never go away. Can this be fixed?

If the screen is scratched it will need to be replaced, so yes it can be fixed but it will be expensive. If you have nothing to lose you could try reducing the effect of the scratches by polishing across them gently with fine jewellers rouge, try a corner first as it might completely ruin the screen. Not too much pressure as you will damage screen further

My Mitsubishi WD65731 65" 1080p DLP HDTV has scratches.

ive never seen a tv with a plastic cover on the screen (unless it just got unpacked) even if its just the screen rubbing polish into it wont hurt it! unless it has a hole in it down the the liquid crystal it could get in there and cause major problems but if that part is still working fine then buff away! the liquid crystal in all LCD's is between the two glass plates..then theres a thicker glass over the top.
hope this helps,ben

Scratch on plasma screen

You should be able to make the scratch become invisible using a white eraser. A pink one will work, but the white one works better. Just simply erase the scratch, it may take awhile, but your basically buffing the surface down even again making the scratch un-noticeable.

Vizio LCD Screen Scratch

There is A product for repairing scratches on CD's and DVD's. It is a wax type pencil that fills the scratch then "polishes" it away. It will not take it away completely, but should make it bearable. I Did the samething with my first widescreen. You an pickup this at circuit city for around ten bucks! Let me know how helpful this was! Good Luck!
