Reflection off of screen


Plasma TV's are known for their glare and reflection issues, you can still fix it by buying a third party anti-glare filter and applying it on your television. For example, "ViewGuard" makes filters that goes up to 65" in size. It is not cheap though, depending on the size of your television.
Of course, the best solution is to adapt your room accordingly. If the glare is caused by the sun light coming from the windows, installing curtains on your windows or moving your television to a better spot is a very effective way to reduce the glare and the reflections on your television.
If the glare is caused by the room's lights, the best solution is to install ceiling spot lights with a dimmer.

Hope that helps!

Laptop or Monitor Cleaning


LCD and plasma screens have a anti-glare coating or anti-reflective coating. This is so any bright light doesn't reflect and wash out the picture. It does help but it also makes cleaning the screen a bit of a problem.

As this is a coating on glass it is actually possible to clean t off by using the wrong cleaner. There are great glass cleaners out there but most are chemically based and too aggressive. In other words they attack the coating.

So what do you use? Paper towels, a drop of dish washing or liquid soap and water. And you need to use a bit of a technique or you will see smears or smudges on the screen.

You need to get two sheets of paper towels. One is your dry wipe. Wet one with water. Then add a drop of liquid soap or detergent. Give it a couple of gentle squeezes to distribute the soap. Then give it a bit harder one to get rid of excess water. Depending on the coating you may want a second piece that has only water and just damp not wet.

Now we clean the screen. First take the soapy towel and wipe down the screen getting it wet. You don't want running water just enough to wet the screen. If you have the soap right you will just see the odd bubble. Once you have the screen wet, wait about 30 seconds and now scrub it using the soapy towel with a circular motion. If there is anything on the screen it should come off. If something is stubborn just keep scrubbing it or use a fingernail to scratch it off and wipe with the soapy after.

Now we need to get the soap off. If the screen dries and has streaks you may need to use the wet un-soaped towel to wipe/rinse of the soap before drying. To dry the screen we want to use the dry towel and use large circular motions. Go over it once and turn it over so the dry side is being used. Keep using those big round motions and at the same time ease up of how hard you push the towel. The idea is to have little pressure on the towel as you finish. That's the trick to getting it streak free.

This takes a minute to do but lets you safely clean your display without damaging the coatings. It also works on any glass surface.

My son sprayed half a bottel of mirror cleaner on my flat screen what should i do


Depending on what is in the cleaner it may do no harm at all. The screen will have a anti-glare or anti-reflection coating on the glass. If the cleaner is mild it won't attack this coating. If it attacks it you may see shiny spot.

If you can clean it off without scrubbing ie blot it off don't rub it you may get away without causing any additional harm (if any). If the cleaner doesn't do any harm to the electrics then thats about all that could happen. There are some prducts that can be used to recoat the screens but they are not as durable as the original coating.

My plasma tv has several really deep scratches on the screen, how can i go about repairing this?


There are liquid solutions for filling LCD scratches
it's basically a plastic material that fills the scratch.

Big scratches are more of a problem. I am assuming that your
Plasma screen has a glass surface and that it's only scratched,
not physically broken. You may also try glass polishing compounds
for filling and polishing chipped windshields. Be careful, try it on a small spot first to make sure that you don't dissolve any plastic anti-reflection coatings etc.

Good luck
