If it is a glass screen there is nothing you can do to it. First the tube is not available and second too costly if it was. Third the only chance is a used tube from a junked out tv at a repair shop and that will cost too but not as much. But seeing that it is a CTC 179 and assuming the long number is the serial number, it will be hard to find. If that is not the serial number then I'm sorry for I am completely wrong! If it is a lcd tv then the screen cost usually about three quarters the price of the set. Sorry about your problem. Hope this helps At this point I am assuming from deductions that it is a LCD.

Model # 31gt740 / do not have audio on several channels. the other channels function normally. this happened after my grandson hooked his XBOX up to it and then we switched back to regular tv.

Hello there,

Press the SOUND key on your GE remote (below and to the left of the arrow keys) to open the AUDIO PROCESSOR menu then use the arrow keys to select STEREO then press OK. It's possible that connecting the X-Box has switched the TV to an audio mode which is not compatible with the audio signal on some channels.

If this doesn't work, try some of the other settings (MONO / EXPANDED, etc) from the AUDIO PROCESSOR menu.

In addition, if you are using a cable/satellite receiver, please try resetting the receiver. On most boxes you can do this by simply switching off and back on. Some may need to be disconnected from the power for a few seconds.

Hope this helps. Please try the suggestions above then let me know if you need further assistance by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. Please note, when connecting or disconnecting devices from the TV, it is always better to do this with the TV switched off.

Is it possilble to repair a scratched lcd tv screen

Typically, all lcd screens have a protective film coating that is scratched is not the matrix. If the scratches are not deep you can try them polished tool for polishing cd drive. If you scratch deeper and you will not be able to remove them yourself, contact a service center to replace the protective cover the screen it will cost a low price

How do I fix a deep scratch in my Toshiba LCD tv screen?


Sorry - there is NO fix for it! When an LCD/Plasma screen gets bashed or scratched it's damaged forever. A new screen will cost more than a new TV.

I have a 3 inch scratch on my plasma tv that happened in a move. I think it is a glass screen. Is there any way to cover or fill this scratch. It isn't very deep but it bugs me that I can see it.

You must determine whether or not the scratch is on a protective fromt screen or the panel itself. I don't know your specific model, but some of the LGs have a front glass behind which is the actual panel. If that is the case with yours, you can replace the front glass. If it is only the panel, then there is no way to repair other than replacing the panel which is VERY expensive.

If you wish to try something, go to a local auto parts store and purchase a windshield repair kit. This will contain an optically transparent epoxy that can fill in the scratch and make it at least less noticable similar to filling a scratch or crack on a windshield.

hello.... do you have any speakers near your television? what color is the circle your talking about? Do the green,pink colors are scattered all over the screen and specially on the corners?
If you have or had speakers near your tv? then do this try to get a magnet.a magnet on a speaker would do.what you have to do is to place the magnet near the screen of the tv approx. above the green,pink color (turn it on first).you will notice the that the color will react with the magnet try to pull it on the side you will notice that the green,pink color is moving on the same direction do it until its gone.NOTE make sure youll not scratch the screen me what happened. GOODLUCK

Thick plastic film covering glass screen got deeply scratched while moving

Hi there!
I would simply replace the plastic sheeting. Will certainly be cheaper than replacing a tube. Glass tvs don't normally come with this plastic so leave it off if you can remove it. There is a type of spray on the market for this purpose, just don't know if available in your country. Please note: It is dangerous to use a tv which had been scratched beyond 1.5mm, The glass may become unstable and implode if bumped by accident. Good Luck,JUS004

Sratches on tv screen

Try toothpaste first. take a cuetip, get a little on it, and rub in circles, if it's a longer scratch you can just use your finger. Rub in a circular motion for a few minutes. Clean it off with smooth cloth or tissue paper lightly moistened. Make sure that it's a very soft cloth or you can scratch it further.

the other thing to try is a product called scratch-out for cars. It removes scratches from the polymer clear-coat of cars. follow the directions carefully, (rub on, let dry, rub off with clean cloth), if it doesn't work, you are no worse off.

Removal of Scratches on TV Screen

you can try toothpaste. use on the scratched areas in a circular motion for around 5 minutes. This can reduce, and remove scratches from plastic, and even glass. Wipe of with a clean soft fabric or tissue paper lightly moistened.

Another solution is scratch-out. Which is used to repair spiderweb scratches in the clearcoat on automobiles. This is a polymer coating on cars. Your screen is also a polymer. follow the directions carefully, and don't get too aggressive with it. If it doesn't work, what you lost?

The poster above is obviously inexperienced with this type of thing.

TV Scratch

You can probable conceal the scratches but a complete repair is not possible,I've seen people who repair cracks in windshields using a special compound that dries clear but even that only conceals the scratches.I hope the scratches are not too deep and you can hardly see them when the set is on.
