Wiped? Or SPRAYED?

I have seen people spray the screen, and the liquid falls to the bottom, and it gets WICKED (as in candle wick) UP in between the screens.

You have one of two choices, and it also depends on what you used to clean it with.

The hopefully prefered situation is you should used an alcohol/water based cleaner that got wicked up.The good news is it leaves no residue and all you have to do is wait about a month for it to evaporate. That's the SAFEST thing to do.

The one you really don't want to do is to remove the screen, separate the screen, use a MICROFIBER cloth to remove excess liquid and dry it with a hair dryer.

WHY? Because when you OPEN the screen, DUST gets in ! And when you close it, it gets trapped and you see specks in your picture. Then you have to open it and chase the dust around, and it's a nightmare getting it out of there.

If we have to separate the screens we'll do it on the kitchen table after it's been wiped down. That's about the only place safe to remove/separate the screens. but it's not dust-proof. You may want to vacuum the kitchen floor after dusting the counters to alleviate any dust, and then wait a couple hours and vacuum again.

Then we will have reduced the dust down to a managable level for separating the screens. You MUST use microfiber towels that have NOT been washed with fabric softener, soap only. You will need to get Walmart's Optical glass cleaner available at the optical department.

When you are ready, contact me. but like I said before, if you would use water/alcohol mixture then be patient and within a month it will disappear and no dust inside the screens.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have three black circles, and some color streaking at he bottom inch of my RCA, LCD tv

that is usually caused by cleaning the screen with windex the windex runs down the screen bewteen the screen and plastic frame and actually seeps inside between the screen layers. Eventually it may go away by itself if the circles are not too bad but in most cases the damage is permanent.It can also be an issue called screen delamination which there is no fix for.

Tv and gum

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.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs

Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.

PT5299HD screen

I had the same problem trying to find a new screen. What I did was found a local plastics shop and had a piece of 1/8" plexy glass that has one side anti-glare. It was only $50, and its alot more durable.I had a few problems changing it though. First you have to pull the rear bottom panel lose, then the rear top. Once the screen is exposed (TAKE THIS ADVICE), put a small piece of tape on one of the top corners and mark its position. This has a two part screen and the inner one is a image magnifier and goes only one way. It took me 4 trys to reposition it right for a correct picture. Once you do this carefully unbolt the two side and top screen brackets. Make sure you dont mess with the four centering sensers. Only loosen the screws on the bottom screen bracket. Take the screen out and seperate the two screens by removing the tape around the edges. You will now discover that only the outer antiglare screen is craked. Clean the three inner sides with windex and a paper towel, then use a cotton rag or tee shirt to eliminate any particles left behind. Once you get the screen in place dont over tighten the screws they strip very easy. Since you have the tv apart you should go ahead and blow all the componits off with a keyboard cleaner, and clean the bulbs with a super soft cotton teeshirt with a small spray of the windex on it, dont spray the bulbs directly, and do the same with the mirror. Remeber that all streaks will show up on the image screen. Clean the out side of the screen after you put it back together. Oh yeah, make sure its unpluged first.

Liquid leaked into tv

Hi Tracy,
I have the sweetest grandchildren and tey are always willing to help also, so we have to love the children for all their wonderful help. ( NOT !!! ) But lets not send your son to the adoption web sight just yet. I'll start by letting you know ( in a sigh of releif for you ) that your tv is not damaged forever, although, when the windex drys, you will probably see a dirt stain on the screen, since the windex probably did it's job and cleaned the dirt off, unfortunatly the residue is between the screens. You have 2 layer of plastic screens for your TV. One is a lexan shield and the other is a riffled substance plastic. To seperate the two of them, you need to take the front of the TV off, normally by removing screws from the inside of the TV ( this can be a tricky job and I really suggest you have a pro do it if you haven't worked on TV's in the past ). If you do it, be extra careful not to break the screen or sheild after removing as they can get a bit pricey. When you take them out, they will seperate ( one lays on top of the other, no real trick to them ) and then just grab your windex ( the remains of the bottle that your son left you ) and clean them like you would glass. Of course after you clean the screens, replace them in the oppisite proceedure of taking them apart and wella, all is ok again and junior remians a loving and helpful son. smiling. I hope this helped. Nice day.
