Question about Sony KP-ER43M61 43" Rear Projection Television

Stain on screen

My two year old wiped the screen with one of those hand cleaner swabs handed out at restaurants after a meal. I assume it contains some alcohol or cleaning agent. It left a permanent mark on the screen which shows whenever the screen is dark. I tried removing by just wiping with a damp cloth and it didn't work. What can I do??

Can I get the screen clear if I have used the wrong cleaner

Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.

For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.

In order to maintain clean copier, you should always do the following;

a. Avoid keeping it on direct sunlight
b. Avoid dust as much as possible
c. Don't keep it near a leaking roof.
d. When wiping the floor, cover the copier with dust proof dustcover since invisible dust flows at this time.
e. Do not keep foods and some edible materials in the same room with the copier as this will attract pests which harms the machine. For example, cockroaches enter the machine and makes stubborn stains which discolors the copier.
f. When handling your machine, make sure your hands are clean and not oily as you should know that, skin perfumes and hair conditioners are oily and will make dirts stick on your copier.Also wipe dry your hands with a clean towel since watery hands will spread some stains around wherever you touch.
g. After work, wipe it with a clean cloth dampened with water and soap. Wipe dry with a clean cloth . This should only apply to side covers and scanner glass.
h. When completely dry, you can use a window cleaner to shine it clean and cover it with waterproof and dust proof cover and leave it like that till the next days work.

If you follow this tip on daily basis, service and maintenance will be greatly reduced. Try it and you won't regret.

How to remove furniture oil from my leveno laptop screen

1) Apply talcum or baby powder to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes. The powder will help draw the oil or grease out and then you can lightly brush the powder off.

2) Rubbing alcohol can help break the grease down. Moisten the stained area with the alcohol and then blot gently with a towel.

3) The hand cleaner that people use to remove grease from their hands will also work.

Some one sprayed something on my flat screen tv and now it has streaks

It could possibly be stained and cleaning will not help. Please run out to the electronics store and purchase an LCD cleaner or LCD cleaner wipes. Hope you can still fix this. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Is there an easier way other than magic erasors to get crayon off the walls?

Hair spray works pretty well for this. I have also found that starting fluid on a rag will wipe it right off. One think that works wonders with any stain is to go to the auto parts store and buy the hand cleaner called gunk it surprisingly has directions on it for removing stains and works really well

Detergent stains on the finish of the washer and dryer

Try one or all of the cleaners listed below to remove the stain. Hope this helps you.
  • Oxygen bleach
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Acetone
  • Paint thinner
Steps to Remove the Stain:
  1. Laundry soap dyes are usually more difficult to remove than other colors.² However, oxygen bleach, such as Oxi-Clean, can sometimes clean away even the red stains. Sprinkle the powder on a damp sponge and scrub away the stain.
  2. Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and wipe away the detergent stain. If the stain is not immediately lifted, allow the alcohol to soak for several minutes.
  3. Vinegar is effective on many kinds of stains. Make a solution of one part vinegar in two parts water and sponge the vinegar onto the stain.
  4. Baking soda can be effective for removing detergents from appliance surfaces. Sprinkle baking soda on a damp sponge and clean the stain until removed.
  5. Combine equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide with water and sponge the stain with the solution.
  6. Soak a cloth with acetone nail polish remover and use it to wipe off the stain. If the stain does not wipe off right away, it may help to lay the cloth over the stain to soak for a few minutes.
  7. As a last resort, wipe paint thinner on the stain. Paint thinner can remove most dye stains. However, you may want to test this on a small, hidden area first to be sure the paint thinner won't damage the lacquer on the appliance or cause any other adverse effects.
  8. Once you have removed the stain, wash the area with soapy water to remove any residue from the cleaning solution.
