Unfortunately, no. The protective screen has to be replaced. Is it a scratch for sure, or possibly a spider web inside?

I have a panasonic pt47wx49e rear projection television. On the bottom half of the screen there is a red shadowing effect that makes me think the convergence is off. Also there is a scratch on the outer...


I had the same problem with my tv. It is a convergence problem but if it has convergence settings in the menu and they don't fix it, you need to clean the lenses with alcohol and q-tips. I did it with the tv on so i could make sure it was clean by the absence of streaks on the lenses. The outer screen (if it is smooth) should be a protective screen (just plexiglass). You can get a replacement at a glass store be sure to keep the old one so they can cut a piece to size. It the screen you are talking about has little lines in it your freznel lens is scratch and it will be difficult to find a replacement. Good luck!

Scratched lcd screen - 52inch sony bravia


Vaseline Method
  1. Clean the screen
  2. Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
  3. Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
  4. Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.

Pencil Eraser Method
  1. Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor.
  2. Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
  3. Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears
Neither is a perfect fix but does help alot

Scratches in my LCD Television Screen (sony bravia) How will I fix this?


Easiest solution is the stuff you buy to fix your glasses with (Lens cpr), so long as it's a small scratch. Larger scratches don't try to fix you can damage the screen further. 

Other solutions (though I recommend only at your own risk)
Vaseline Method
Clean the surface of the screen.
Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.


Pencil Eraser Method
Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor.
Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears [1].

Sratches on screen


We have to love those wonderful and beautiful children. Unfortunally, I know of nothing to repair the scratches but replacing the screen is possible. Should you try this on your own, make sure you install the new screen in the proper direction. Good Luck

There is a product for polishing platstic that removes minor scratches. I don't however remember the name of the product and if you do obatin it try it in the corner of the screen first to verify it won't do further damage to the screen.
