Hello,

Assuming you have removed the coating with the cleaner, (TV is much brighter where the marks are)

If you have home insurance then now is the time to call.

The TV, being an LCD, has a coating on the front, kind of like paint, but not. It is what allows an LCD TV to produce "Black", by blocking the light.

It is not easily replaceable as it is sprayed on at the factory.

Sorry.

I have several large water spots on the lower right corner of the tv from overspray with windex. Can this be fixed?


Not a good idea to clean tv with windex. Try wet towel dipped in mild soap solution. Make sure all water has been removed and towel is only wet. When tv off, try removing the spots. Turn tv on only after tv dry.

My Sony DLP has WHITE DOTS all over the screen, Whats THAT?


I have a lcd tv that has a few black dots but it may be from a similar cause. During a move the screen was rubbed against i was wiping the screen later and picked a small piece of plastic off the screen. The moral is... the screens are sensitive to the touch and you should be carefull how you clean it. When i bought my tv i also bought a spray of deionized water. There must be reasons behind why we can't use windex or other chemicals on a screen these days.

Moisture behind screen


It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.

I need to know how to clean the LG flatron L1953T screen without damaging it in any way? should we just used windex or not? it has been wiped with a damp cloth and now has water marks.


Please do not use Windex. Use Anti-Static Monitor Wipes for LCD screens. Using Windex or other cleaning solutions like it will cause streaks on your screen. Damp cloths have the same effect as Windex.

Liquid in screen


The screen is two separate pieces of plastic. One is a fresnel screen and the other is a lenticular panel. They act together to disperse the light evenly. Yes the front bezel will come off and the screen will come out. But they are taped together with just a slight air gap between them. The windex was wicked up between the two panels by capillary action of the fluid and space between the panels. Trying to take the screens apart would be easy. The problem is the grooves in the two panels are almost microscopic so any attempt to rub them will leave a mark. Plus unless you have some kind of clean room the slight dust particle or hair that gets left in there will stick out like a sign when it is reassembled and turned on. The only hope to try to correct this is to removed the bezel and then the screens but do not separate them. Then wedge some tooth picks in the very bottom of the edge where the stain is being careful not to push the picks up into the viewing range. Then with a spray bottle of just water try to rinse the windex and wick up the water with a wedge of paper towel just inside the edge. The same action that got the water up there will wick it down.Repeat this several times to delute the windex as mush as you can. It may not get it all away completely but it should make it livable. After the last rinse leave the picks in and left the panels air dry before putting everything back together. The most IMPORTANT thing not to do is to lay the panels flat and flex them, this will allow the two grooved panels to chaff one another and they will be destroyed.

Liquid leaked into tv


Hi Tracy,
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.
