Question about Sony KP-46WT500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My 2 yr old was 'helping' me to clean, and drowned the 46" LCD screen in WIndex. Some must have gotten between screen & housing, because now the lower 1/5 of the screen has a water-pattern stain across it. Like some capillary action drew the windex up into the screen. I've got strips of paper towel stuck in there to try to draw some up, but other than that i'm not sure of my options (other than beelining over to an adoption website). After the stuff dries, is there likely to be permanent damage to the LCD?
I have the sweetest grandchildren and tey are always willing to help also, so we have to love the children for all their wonderful help. ( NOT !!! ...lol ) But lets not send your son to the adoption web sight just yet. I'll start by letting you know ( in a sigh of releif for you ) that your tv is not damaged forever, although, when the windex drys, you will probably see a dirt stain on the screen, since the windex probably did it's job and cleaned the dirt off, unfortunatly the residue is between the screens. You have 2 layer of plastic screens for your TV. One is a lexan shield and the other is a riffled substance plastic. To seperate the two of them, you need to take the front of the TV off, normally by removing screws from the inside of the TV ( this can be a tricky job and I really suggest you have a pro do it if you haven't worked on TV's in the past ). If you do it, be extra careful not to break the screen or sheild after removing as they can get a bit pricey. When you take them out, they will seperate ( one lays on top of the other, no real trick to them ) and then just grab your windex ( the remains of the bottle that your son left you ) and clean them like you would glass. Of course after you clean the screens, replace them in the oppisite proceedure of taking them apart and wella, all is ok again and junior remians a loving and helpful son. smiling. I hope this helped. Nice day.
