I'm guessing you have a matt finish to your screen in which case it is semi flexible plastic. It's important not to use anything abrasive or acidic as it could leave an etched mark. The best think is to soak a tissue in a solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water (about 1 teaspoon to 1/4 pint water), then with your TV switched off, tape the tissue over the stain and leave overnight. Gently rub the tissue over the area the next morning and the mark should have gone or at least be less noticeable. Hope that helps :o)

White line across screen

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.

Take it to a repair shop.

Hi Metthew,
Most probably the TCON board in your tv is defective. Please consult some qualified service technician. Most of the time the company service centers ask you to replace the entire LCD panel, which is an expensive affair. TCON board is a small part of the panel. and its job is to distribute the picture information across the LCD screen. Good luck.

Our LN40A630 has three horizontal white lines across the screen on power up (center, center of upper half , and center of lower half). After about five minutes the lines go away. Tried Picture Test in...

This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.

42" LCD TV leaves marks on screen following using

This is a defective LCD display panel. It will cost as much as a new set unless your still within the 1 year warranty. As far as cleaning the screen, you can use an old t-shirt by spraying a little windex on the shirt and wiping gently up and down or left to right but never in a circular pattern. I found it best to do this after the set has been on for 15 minutes to warm up the surface then shut the set off and give a clean.

Clean the screen.

I highly recommend using an LCD screen cleaner occasionally to remove dust and debris that can collect over time - I use this on both my computer and television:

Monster Screen Cleaner

Hope that helps.

Tcon board fault. (screen driver) in the middle at the back of screen. can be the fuse on the board its marked as P. if the fuse is fine then the board has gone it can be the row of brown thick resisters at the top part of the board if they are greasy they have over heated. look for heat marks from the main chip in the board these would need to be replaced. if you need a new or used board to replace there are a few out there but they have been updated. you need to match the part number try to get the same V number but there are so meany V0.0 up V2.5 they will all work the same but they have a few changes in screen control you may not be used to. so try to get the same number.

Display problems

it depends on what type of PC you have but basically you can go to "my computer" and "display" - change the "resolution" to the next higher setting - this will shrink the screen to fit your window [dxh]
