Get a bottle of canned air, about 10 bucks. hold it upside down, and spray the liquid on the gum(despite what the directions tell you to do). gently pell off from one side of the gum, constantly spraying underneath the gum so it stays frozen. follow up with windex, or a normal LCD screen cleaner. Be careful not to get the liquid on your skin, as it can cause 3rd degree burns, and in worst cases, FROSTBITE. Trust me I know(1 Freshmen + 1 bottle canned air X 1 senior = pain for both parties) What this does, is freeze the sugar molecules in the gum from contracting when it is pulled by freezing them to a near sub zero temperature.

My Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. HDTV LCD which was bumped into pretty hard and the inside screen on the tv cracked. The crack is only visible when the tv is on can this be fixed or is it garbage


Unfortunatly it is garbage basically.. You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

The LCD panel which is responsible for the picture is toast. You will need to replace it. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD.

I recommend just finding the best sale you can and buy a new one.

Scratched 32" screen


Honestly brother, there is not anything you can do about this. You have one of two options, #1 buy a new tv, or #2 deal with the scratches. If you call sharp, they will send you right out the door because their warranties do not cover physical damages in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Avoid yourself the embararssment and take one of those options. Take it from a person who knows. good luck 2 u
