Re: Cleaning Scratches on TV screen

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.

We need to clean our Sony KP-53N77. We have some spider webs inside the protective screen and our color is a little fuzzy. We have never had the mirrors cleaned. How do we access the areas to clean and...

Remove the back hardboard cover by removing all the screws and lifting the cover up and toward you.

Mirror will be above but usually doesnt get dusty. Try not to touch it if you can. Same with back of screen. If you have a spider web just use a soft dry cloth to wipe it away.

You will likely find the upward facing lamp lenses covered in dust. Clean these with a soft cloth moistened with glasses cleaning solution. Glass cleaner works too.

Is it possilble to repair a scratched lcd tv screen

Typically, all lcd screens have a protective film coating that is scratched is not the matrix. If the scratches are not deep you can try them polished tool for polishing cd drive. If you scratch deeper and you will not be able to remove them yourself, contact a service center to replace the protective cover the screen it will cost a low price

51" Philips Projection Wide Screen. Want to know

Almost all the Philips projection sets have a large black plastic shroud on the top half of the back of the set----it can be removed--most of these sets use torks type screws (star shaped).

With the upper part on the back removed you will find the mirror is suspended---do not try to clean it--it is film like handy wrap and will not need cleaning.

I use a swiffer type duster to reach inside the set to remove any spider webs etc, If dead insects or dirt inside the screen use a very soft cloth with water (just dampen the cloth slightly)

Usually you are seeing spider or cob webs and the duster will get them all--DO NOT APPLY FORCE IF YOU WIPE THE INSIDE OF THE SCREEN AS IT IS EASY TO SCRATCH IT!

If you have questions make a comment here and I will do my best to answer them.

I replaced the convergence chip which fixed my main problem, but now am wondering if a faulty pico/resistor can cause poor color? Thank you,

pico resistors serves as circuit breaker like a open resistor cause your circuit to malfunction..poor color can be corrected by cleaning the three cathode lamps.wipe it with a soft cloth same with the projection mirror clean it with a soft cloth be carefull not to break the mirror.Ajust the color intensity of each cathode through it screen adjustment adjustment are place at the front pannel of your tv they are labeled screen RGB..GOOD LUCK!

please rate my help tnx.

Spots on tv picture

A friend of mine had the same problem. It is dust on the mirrors, but I recommend you have it professionally cleaned. They had theirs done and it fixed the problem

Cob webs

This model has a regular glass CRT part # A80AJZ9010. The cob webs may be just scratches in the glass. I don't see a protection screen listed on this set. But I will look better tomorrow, and get back to you if I find anything.

Sratches on tv screen

Try toothpaste first. take a cuetip, get a little on it, and rub in circles, if it's a longer scratch you can just use your finger. Rub in a circular motion for a few minutes. Clean it off with smooth cloth or tissue paper lightly moistened. Make sure that it's a very soft cloth or you can scratch it further.

the other thing to try is a product called scratch-out for cars. It removes scratches from the polymer clear-coat of cars. follow the directions carefully, (rub on, let dry, rub off with clean cloth), if it doesn't work, you are no worse off.

Dvd ALWAYS skips!

It may well be the lens of the DVD player, your best bet is to buy a CD lens cleaning kit and play that through the DVD player.

Removal of Scratches on TV Screen

you can try toothpaste. use on the scratched areas in a circular motion for around 5 minutes. This can reduce, and remove scratches from plastic, and even glass. Wipe of with a clean soft fabric or tissue paper lightly moistened.

Another solution is scratch-out. Which is used to repair spiderweb scratches in the clearcoat on automobiles. This is a polymer coating on cars. Your screen is also a polymer. follow the directions carefully, and don't get too aggressive with it. If it doesn't work, what you lost?

The poster above is obviously inexperienced with this type of thing.

TV Scratch

You can probable conceal the scratches but a complete repair is not possible,I've seen people who repair cracks in windshields using a special compound that dries clear but even that only conceals the scratches.I hope the scratches are not too deep and you can hardly see them when the set is on.
