Hi there!
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

Screen damage from Panasonic Viera TV


Hi
There is a solution. If you brought this to my shop I would replace the film (depending upon availability). Absolute worst case is replacing the screen (costly). Of course this is my shop, you'll need to take it to a reputable repair person. Sorry

Gouge in laptop screen. Less than half inch long


Hi:
is the display distorted under the scratch?

If it is, the problem could get worse. If your scratch is just on the plastic surface, the problem shouldn't get worse.

MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS JUST SCRATCHED MY SONY BRAVIA TV WITH A MAGNA DOODLE PEN. HOW CAN I GET RID OF THE SCRATCHES?


Clean the surface of the LCD screen with a barely damp cloth.
  • Step 2 Dry the screen with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Step 3 Rub a generous amount of petroleum jelly into the scratch using a cotton swab. The petroleum jelly should fill in the scratch and remain there.
  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • This scratch repair method is effective because of optical density. The optical density of petroleum jelly matches the plastic, LCD screen coating more closely than that of air.
  • To avoid future scratches or gouges, you might consider purchasing a LCD screen protector. These screen protectors are generally made of a thin, plastic film and affix to the screen without adhesives. Not only can they protect against scratches, but they also keep the screen free of dirt, oil and dust while simultaneously reducing glare.
  • When wiping the screen as described Step 4, avoid pressing too hard or you will inadvertently remove the petroleum jelly from inside the scratch.
  • Using petroleum jelly to fill a scratch on your LCD screen could void your screen's warranty. If you are concerned about warranty issues, consult your user's manual for more information.

    Scratched lcd on d90 camera


    Caveat...Well maybe I can solve it. Depends on whether it is a scratch or a gouge and where it is. If the damage is on the plastic cover that is supposed to protect the LCD, easiest solution is to get a new cover. Only a few dollars.
    If the damage is on the LCD itself and is gouge, you're out of luck. If it is a scratch get some plastic polish (like they use to buff up windows on convertible car tops) and have a go with it. May rub out the scratch.

    Broken screen


    TV screen monitor not the LCD type is not easily broken if you refer to, because of the thickness of the glass an inch thick, not unless a solid force smashed throught it but...deeply sorry to tell you that its not advisable to use your unit since causes a hole on it, the radiationmay pass through and may cause a harmful effect to your body so have an absolute thoughts of not using it. you can replace the screen of the brand you bought.

    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
