Question about Televison & Video
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.

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.

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.
