Moisture inside TV

I have a panisonic LCD TV... my son sprayed it with a mister (fine water mist) this morning. I wiped it up once I'd noticed, but I fear mositure is now inside the tv because there are some blackish streeks when I turn the TV on. I tried blowing it with the hair dryer and that seems to have helped a little bit, but not alot... is there anyway to fix this?! PLEASE

    Boys! My son did the same thing and I took the same measures, but the same black streaks are there. Does anyone know how you solve this?

Sorry to say the info I was given here didn't prove as useful as I'd hoped. Thank you however to those who tried!!! I called a TV repair man and spoke to someone in person, this was much more useful.

Water got inside cpv350 standard horizon and its in the screen assembly. What can I do? Is it wrecked? Im afraid to turn on. Help please!

If you mean water got inside of the electonics pcb the it shouldn't be that big of a problem if the tv was unplugged. I would take the tv apart and use a blow dryer held close or a heat gun held a good distance away to get most of the moisture dried up. I would then keep the tv open in a warm low humidity room to dry the rest of the way. Just to be safe you could buy a incandescent made for gun cases set it inside on the pcb, put the cover on completely, then tape the vent holes with packaging tape to get the rest of the moisture out of the electronics. Keep the t.v. unplugged for a minimum of 48 hrs or longer to be safe. If the spill happened while th t.v. was plugged in the chances that something shorted out are much greater.

How to clean screen

Howdy. I use a prepackaged wipe from the hardware store made for cleaning TV and monitor screens. you can use windex wipes,too. It is ok to use any alcohol based wipe. you can use a slightly moistened cotton cloth then dry wipe. Don't let any moisture run down screen at all. Farmerbear at FixYa

Help! My TV is turning red

It may be a problem in the picture tube of your TV set. It may be because of various problems such as you might have wiped your TV screen with a cloth or some thing very harshly or your TV is in a position that it receives direct air from an AC or a room cooler.

If u have a plasma TV which do not have any picture tube then u may have pressed the screen hardly.

The solution for a TV with a picture tube is that you may need 2 change your pictr tube or call an expert from the company from where u purchased you TV.

If its a TV with a LCD screen then u may need to adjust the contrast to a lower pictr quality or u may need to refill the liquid inside the screen.

KV-20fv300-cycling thru channels

I have had cold solder connections on the circuit board of the control panel cause this. I have also had defective switches on the control panel, or a situation where the customer sprayed water on the face of the CRT for cleaning and some of the water leaked down inside on to the control panel. In this case, there were many times where I had to replace the complete control panel.

It is also possible to have a defect in the main uPC. This type of repair can end up being expensive.

HT27546 turned off and won't turn back on

Sounds like it is probably just a fuse inside the t.v. May also have a bad diode. I would take it in for an est. if you don't feel good about replacing the fuse. Always have your t.v. unplugged when working on it.

Got wet

Most likely he sprayed the screen, and the fluid dripped down onto the board where the pushbuttons are. The pushbuttons them became contaminated and shorted out inside. Usually, the damage done will not be reversed by drying the set out. He should not feel bad, though, because we see adults doing that all the time. The TV has not "had it", since it is quite easy to correct. The board should be cleaned and any defective pushbuttons replaced by a qualified tech.
