Question about Televison & Video
My 3 year old sun took a water gun to the tv. Before I'd noticed, some of the water had gone in through the bottom of the screen. Everything was fine and functional. The next morning, dark circles stared appearing at the bottom of the screen.. there are eight dark spots on the bottom of the screen and one at the top. Is there any way we can get these to go away or are we better off having to spend to buy a new tv? This happened three weeks ago, and the tv was bought two months ago.

I got bad news, your son may have damaged the LCD itself since any water damage would have dried up over the three week period. To replace the LCD screen may cost the same as a new set. What I would suggest is that you take the Tv to a qualified Tv shop and have them check it. Be prepared to hear a high cost for repairs, due to the fact that the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen might be damaged. I know this is not what you want to hear, but have the shop try to locate the cause of the problem and they might be able to suggest another recourse, such as by chance if the LCD screen actually is not dried out and the water is cauing a problem. In any event you will have to take the TV to a qualified TV shop.
I hope this helps,

We have a Samsung 40" LCD and one morning we switched the tv on. There are green outlines that are all over the tv. It is almost impossible to see. Our lounge is really cold in winter. It resembles water damage. Could it be water damage?
