Question about Toshiba 46HM95 46" HDTV

Toshiba 46HM95 Screen?

I believe my wife cleaned the screen with something, and now on the lower right hand side it looks like there is a long smudge mark. I tried to get off but no luck. I turned the tv off and ran a flashlight over the screen and I can see the smudge as it is discolored, so that leads me to believe that it is a problem with the screen itself. What can I do?

Can you feel if the surface is rough has it been cleaned with an abrasive cloth like a scouring cloth used for dishes as this will scratch the surface of the screen try getting a good polish spray on but dont spray to much on and use a soft cloth ideally a proper duster cloth see if they polish out if not the the screen surface has been scratched this can be polished out but you will need to get a pro to do this as doing it your self could ruin the telly permanenty as this is a delicate job to do hopefully you should polish these marks off but if not i would get somebody out to look at the telly to get the scratches polished out of the screen this should not cost to much but will save the frustration of watching a smuged screen the only thing you can do yourself is try polishing the screen properly in case she cleaned it and the cleaning product is still on screen if not you will need to get the screen profesionally polished goto a tv repair shop and these should tell you who to call hope this is some help to you but their isnt much you can do yourself

Dirty marks on samsung pictures not the view finder ES73


You need to realize that the screen has 1 million pixels max, while the camera sensor has 12 million pixels. On the LCD you can barely tell whether something is in focus, right?

So if there is dirt or a smudge on the lens, or inside the camera on the sensor itself, you'll be much more likely to see it when you look at the final picture on the monitor.

Clean lens with a microfibre cleaning cloth (similar to eyeglasses or monitor glass) and see if that helped. Cleaning the sensor is probably a job for a camera repair shop. Good luck!

Printer has two smudges in same place every time


The reason you see a smudge in the exact same place everytime is due to ink being on the roller. Solution: using good light, use isoprel alchol on a cotton swab to clean the roller. Ink on the roller is also an indication that your head cleaner pad (look really good on the right hand side <inside> for the pad) is dirty. If you've not done so in the past, just flip it over and like magic you have a clean pad...just dirty on the other side.

Laserjet 1000 smudges on sides of output.


The transfer roller (foam roller) should be easily accessible by putting a non-metallic object under the left end of the roller, down into the indentation, and lightly prying in an upward manner. I have used a baby wipe (non-aloe, non-perfumed, etc) to wrap around the transfer roller -- and then roll them both in your hand.

When you put the transfer roller back into the printer, the next few pages will look awful. Give it a minute to dry out -- and then print a real test page. Let me know how that looks and we'll go from there.

BTW, if this doesn't fix the problem, please don't rate the solution just yet. I have a couple other ideas.

Good Day, sam;
Sam it depends on "smudge".
If it's an oily type; then a mild soap, like dawn, on damp, warm soft cotton type cloth may remove it.
There are products found in most large best buy, circuit stores that sell a screen cleaner. It's sold in a small spay bottle, about 2-3 ounces. Always spray onto cloth NOT screen. Always wipe/clean with up & down strokes, NOT side to side or at an angle.
If the screen is smudged after attempts of trying to 'cleanning' a scratch, then only replacing the screen will fixya problem, cost will be in the range of $100.00-$250.00.
Good Luck, hope this was helpful, big IRISH.

Smudge looking marks onscreen


If you suddenly noticed it, this is most likely caused by a large piece of dust on the lens. It is hard to clean, you would need to take the whole TV apart in order to get to the lens (mounted on the optical block).

It could also be caused by a failure of the optical block, which had inherent issues. There is a pending class action law suit against Sony for problems with optical block that include smudges, hazes, and tints that appear after a certain number of hours.

Other causes could be a dirty portion of the mirror or a smudge on the inside part of the screen but these are rare because dust and contaminants do not usually accumulate on these parts of the TV.

Smudge marks???


If they are grease marks you can use a warm water a soft cloth like a t-shirt and little dish washing liquid. Gentley wipe the area only stroking down or up--- NEVER SIDE TO SIDE---. Have a dry cloth ready if you drip water down the screen. Now if those are scuff marks, your done, they cannot be removed. They are like the old record albums with the grooves, once the grooves get distorted that's it. Good luck.
