Plasma Screen Repair

My wife has over time rubbed off the outer coating of the plasma tv. Is this fixable? Can the outer coating be removed chemically, and a new coating reapplied? Thanks.

Re: Plasma Screen Repair

No it is not fixable, wouldn`t it be nice if the manufacturers would include this in the owners manual ? Your wife is not the first to do this by any means, windex and other cleaners are very caustic to these panels and should never be used. the entire "panel" has to be replaced and it`s the most expensive part in your set, I`m sorry to be the bearer of bad news but at least you now know and won`t repeat the mistake, BMW Rider

I have the newest version of this plsma TV. It is one month old. I tried to clean some areas of the screen with a micro fiber cloth and a dab of windex in 1 corner of the cloth, not realizing that the...

You have damaged the outer protective screen. Only replacement will fix. Water only on a damp cloth should be used to clean. However, the outer screen can be changed. Since the tv is almost new you will have to contact Samsung at through customer service at 1-800-627-4368 9AM to 8:30PM Eastern time. When changing the outer screen be sure to never touch the inner screen after removal. You have to take the back off the set to get to the screws holding the baziel or "plastic frame" to remove the outer screen. I have never taken a screen off of a set that new so I advise you exercise patience when removing. Have the product code ready for customer service to locate the proper protective screen. And serial number.

Screen damage from Panasonic Viera TV

There is a solution. If you brought this to my shop I would replace the film (depending upon availability). Absolute worst case is replacing the screen (costly). Of course this is my shop, you'll need to take it to a reputable repair person. Sorry

Broke inner glass on plasma

that is the inner plasma display screen coating this means your plasma screen is done you can replace it if you find the same screen it is a bit technical to do this
if your plasma is still under warantee your okay if not you may want to locate or find a same model tv online site like ebay or electronics surplus site "as is for repair tv" or a same model with a good screen and exchange it or have the service man exchange it for you that would be a better choice than paying for a new screen they cost as much or more than the entire tv. hope this help
