Question about Televison & Video

Son sprayed cleaner on tv.

I caught my son with a spray bottle of all purpose cleaner this afternoon. I thought he only sprayed the door. When I came home tonight to watch tv I have a black mark going across 3/4 of the screen. Near the middle of the screen the black mark is rounded. When getting close to screen it does look like he sprayed the tv as well. It is a 52" rear projection. Will this dry on its own? Will it do more damage if I use the tv?

Liquid is never good on electronics. Without pictures it is hard to say what the damage is.

I have not a clue what to tell you, but doubt the cleaner is the cause of this. In any case the TV is so old you will not be able to get parts.

SOURCE: my son sprayed our sony wega kf-e42a10 lcd

to pkrivard, check out the Sony website. There have been problems with this kind of TV regarding the defective OPTICAL BLOCK installed in the TV. I have the same model TV and the same problem as yours with the dark spot in the bottom (bluish in color) and I never used cleaner on the screen. They have posted extended warranties on some models of rear projection TV's but also CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS in the U.S. due to problems with their rear projection models. http://sites.google.com/site/sonylcdrptvproblems/sonyrearprojectionlcdtv-opticalblock#TOC-Summary-of-Sony-warranty-extensions

Only if it is the protective front screen that the issue is with. the only way to take the protective screen out is to open the tv. A service tech can do this for you however it will not be a cheap fix.

SOURCE: Children sprayed water on 46" lcd TV, and it looks

Oh dear! I would check your household insurance if it was an accident, just in case a replacement is required.
Most items that get wet rarely recover without problems.
The water should not be able to get into the screen as it is a sealed. If the water has not entered the TV, you may get away with wiping the screen with an almost dry cloth that has dilute detergent on it, (washing up liquid and warm water is fine). That will remove the streaks.
Good luck!

MY SON IS GOING TO TRY CLEANING OUT THE DRAINS TO SAVE ME SOME MONEY ON 2005 NISSAN MARONA SUNROOF LEAK WE CANT FINE THE HOLES TO THE DRAIN LINES PLEASE TELL EXPLAIN TO US WERE THEY ARE LOCATED THANKS SO...


No need to remove the headliner. Simply open the sunroof and the drain holes are located towards the front on either side of the sunroof. Try using an old toothbrush to remove and debris or a vacuum cleaner. Once the holes are located, use a metal coat hanger to push through the debris on top. I usually use compressed air but the hanger will work. Also get a spray bottle with water to spray the holes. Once you see water dripping at the bottom of the vehicle you know the passage is cleared out. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Fix screen got wet


These screens do not like water or chemical cleaners. I would try rubbing a soft damp cloth on a small section then dry it quickly gently with a soft dry cloth. If you see an improvement, clean the rest of the screen that way slowly a section at a time. Thats how I cleaned my Samsung Projection TV screen, I spent 30 min or so doing it but it was not very dirty.
Good Luck :)

I think my son put the wrong gas into my power washer what do i do now -- it coughed, knocked and emitted a burning smell, it was diesel, i think


Hello:
I would drain all the gas possible. Take out the spark plug(s). Spray some carb cleaner into the head. Spray some into the carb. Let it sit 10 minutes. Put the correct gas in. Replace plugs and try running it

Passenger and driver side door locks are hard to open with key


Take a can of WD40 (the newer can) with the spray straw...carefully insert the straw into the key hole as far as you can...spray and use the key to turn the assembly..lock and unlock several times CAREFULLY so you don't break off the key..sounds like you just need a little lube on the lock assembly.

I hope this helps you and your son

Wrong Chemical Cleaner on 60 inch DLP TV


Hi There,

Unfortunately, I think you may be out of luck. If you spray a screen directly you are taking a chance at killing your TV. You're actually pretty lucky that it still works. Some chemicals can eat right through or seep through edges and corners and ruin the life of your TV. I am not sure if Mr Clean contains alcohol, but that is the last thing you want on any screen. I would suggest trying to clean it off with an alcohol free solution for HDTV screens only or calling Mitsubishi immediately and see what they have to say.. Here is a similar product for what I am talking about:

Good Luck and Happy Holidays..

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.
