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!

I've replaced my own battery so I felt pretty confident tackling my screen

I've replaced my own battery so i felt pretty confident tackling my iphone 6 plus frame replacement. Just so you know, your screen is a lot more involved But still completely doable. The video that this product links to is pretty thorough although they change the screen on a black iphone which makes some parts hard to see.

The first time around once I got everything back together I had a dead strip running down the middle of my screen and I couldn't type a "y" or a "6" and the middle of my space bar wasn't working. I downloaded an art app to draw all over my screen to test for dead spots and the dead strip ran down the whole middle of my screen. I had a feeling I didn't connect one of the cables correctly so i opened up my phone again and reconnected and it all worked perfectly.

Chances are if you have dead spots on your iPhone 6 plus LCD it has to do with user error rather than a faulty screen.

Good luck and take your time. Be gentle and don't force any parts or you risk damaging your device. For Apple iPhone 6 Plus LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with Frame...

I have a bubble or pressure spot in the middle of my touch screen lg xenon. how do i get rid of it?

I found a solution buy a person by a person named Scott W on yahoo answers, use a small suction cup and pull up on the screen very lightly until "pop" the bubble goes away, but you can still make it come back if you put pressure on it so just put it in your pocket not facing you. good luck <!-- from fixya rte -->

My Htc Touch pro screen, looks like it has a large wet spot in the middle, i know for a fact it hasn't been near water, my screen is totally visable but not able to use by touching the screen, what could...

I suggest taking it to your compaany store but before you go to the store and have them tell u the phone is water damaged, you can save yourself the trip by looking for yourself. There should be a little square located in the back of you phone right below the battery and a little square locatedd on the batery where it connects to the phone. If the phone has water damage then the littl e squares should be red if they dont have water damage, the squares should be white with a plaid kind of design.

Silly question but are you facing into the sun at all, they don't always like seeing any of the sun!
