Hi 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
Is it the screen itself or the protective screen that is scratched. If
it's the protective screen, then you can just remove that, but be
warned the lenticular screen is now prone to scratches from kids, dogs
or a clumsy significant other. But if you feel comfortable with no one
bumping into it, then you can remove the protective screen and actually
get a better picture quality with no glare.
If it's the actual lenticular screen (one behind the protective screen)
then your in trouble and it will cost a pretty penny to get fixed. You can
switch it out yourself once you buy a new one, but have two people
handy, the instructions on how to replace should be in the owners
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.
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
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.
there is an antiglare film on the tube. the only way to fix this is to replace the crt itself, but this cast more than the tv. i would find a strong cleaner and rub off as much as you can. it is possible i have done this myself.
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.
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.
