There is an antiglare film on the tube. the only way to fix this is to replace the crt itself, but this cast more than the tv. i would find a strong cleaner and rub off as much as you can. it is possible i have done this myself.

CDS slipping when playing.

Try the disc in another CD / DVD player.

It is important to make sure that the DVD itself is the problem, and not the CD / DVD player.

Cleaning a CD / DVD player is a much more intricate process that requires device-cleaning hardware.

Lay the disc artwork-side down so that you can easily clean the playing side.

You should always avoid setting a disc playing-side down to prolong its lifespan.

Gently rub the disc with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove all traces of dust and fingerprints. Always rub a disc from the center toward the outer rim in a light motion to prevent any other damage.

Apply a light amount of toothpaste to a cotton wool ball and gently rub the disc from the inside out.

You may need a few drops of water to make the toothpaste spread easily.

Cover the entire surface area of the disc, or at least the area that is scratched.

Toothpaste is a gentle abrasive that works well for fixing simple scratches.

Clean off the toothpaste with the cloth, once again rubbing from the inside of the disc toward the rim.

Try not to push too hard to prevent further damage.

Apply other kinds of light abrasives such as baking soda or glass cleaner if the sound is still distorted.

Remove the solution with the same gentle rubbing technique.

Purchase a disc-cleaning spray from a local video or electronics store.

These sprays are effective in removing any grime from the disc and filling small scratches.

hope this helps

I have plastic cover migration to my CD's. Slight problem is removed by alcohol; but some discs will not clean, and the disc is not readable. Help.

Try cleaning CDs under tap water and dry them thoroughly with a soft cloth. May seem weird, but this often clean the CD better tan alcohol.

Ensure CD have no paper label on top before washing them.

How to get scratches out of almond enamel stove top

Not much you can do for scratches. You can a smooth top cleaner to help buff out the appearance as much as you can, but you cannot fill the cracks or scratches at all.

While i was cleaning my Sony Bravia 40 Inch 1080p Flat panel LCD Screen, it had alot of dust so i used some cloth while i was cleaning it with cloth it made some kind of lines... scratches the scratches...

only use microfiber cloth to clean LCD panels, and no windex. Use 50/50 distilled water and denatured alcohol, or a dedicated LCD cleaner. Small scratches are not worth buffing out as screen itself is relatively soft plastic.

Scratches in my flat top Maytag electric range

report the problem as "thermal cracking" and it will be rplaced by whirlpool/maytag,
these things are hard to scratch, cleaning with a FLAT edge razor scraper is the norm, there are dozens of white cream type cleaners that work well with a scotchbrite and elbow grease.

Scratched Finish on Screen While Cleaning

Here are some solutions to consider. Try in an inconspicuous place first.
1) Use a clean WHITE pencil eraser. Yes WHITE pencil eraser. Some people use a pink eraser and then a white eraser over that for faster removal. Wipe residue off with a damp cloth.
2) Use White Petroleum Vaseline Jelly over the stratches. This may have to stay on an hour before wiping off.
3)You may also get commercial LCD scratch removers on the 'net.

An LCD screen should only be cleaned by using a damp(not wet) with water microfine cloth. Never use household cleaners of any kind.

Scrathes on the screen

Hey picapica2,

In some cases, scratches and other minor imperfections may be able to be removed by cleaning the LCD screen using a slightly damp, lint-free (or microfiber) cloth. Simply dampening the cloth then wringing out any excess moisture will often be enough to remove surface contaminants, and even minimize the appearance of some scratches.

Remember to never use normal household cleaners like Windex or Goo Gone on LCD screens, as many of these cleaners may contain chemicals that can cause eventual corrosion and further damage to your TV.

You may still be able to find a number of commercial LCD screen cleaning kits for sale through local retailers, but keep in mind that availability may vary. Additionally, some manufacturers may have warnings or disclaimers regarding some products, so make sure to refer to your owner's manual for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
