I was researching your problem and I found a warning that you may want to heed on http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/577.

"Scratched glass under compression can be dangerous (more prone to failure). In televisions, the glass is like a giant light bulb that is completely emptied of air, so it is always ready to implode like a submarine getting crushed in a hollywood movie. A scratch can be a a weak spot and implosion can send glass flying when it collides together. Although the flying glass is just tiny shards that can,t penetrate skin, only one has to hit your eye to make it a big deal. So safety glass might be a good idea when working on the tube that close. You will be able to make the scratch duller with some work."

I HAVE A SCRATCH ON MY SONY KDL-52WL135 HOW DO I REMOVE IT ?

Posted on Aug 10, 2008

The actual answer is that you would have to have the front screen replaced. It is opticaly coated. If you try using any type of polishing compounds the coating will be removed. There will probably be ripples and reflections where you tried to do the polishing. The replacement part is made of acrylic with an optical coating. It is expensive.

If you had an LCD screen, the compete panel would have to be replaced. This would be terribly expensive!

I am about to buy a used 60inch Mitsubishi big screen TV...there's a little scratch on the screen is this something that can be fixed easily?


No, if the screen is scratched it would have to be replaced---most are well over 100 in cost---if not too bad this should be a bargaining point to use---set not worth as much with scratched screen.

Out clear screen is protective only and anti glare as well.

Do not try to sand or buff it out--It will just make it look worse.

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

HELLO

Sorry - there is NO fix for it! When an LCD/Plasma screen gets bashed or scratched it's damaged forever. A new screen will cost more than a new TV.

Scratched screen from moving


If you were moved by professionals, perhaps you can file a damage claim?
Both the scratch and the colored lines warrant the replacement of the VERY expensive LCD panel.
Sorry, Mary, but this is not something that you can fix yourself, nor would you want to.

If the installer scratched it, then surely he is liable (under his insurance) to replace it, or get it repaired.

Don't waste your time with attempting to get rid of the scratch.

Lcd tv scratched


One really cheap and quick fix is to gently rub a little vaseline into the scratch, then even more gently rub off the excess, in the direction of the scratch. Oftentimes, though still visible when the screen is off, the scratch will virtually disappear when the display is on. An alternative method is to use white candle wax, which has been allowed to cool on the tip of a cotton swab. If this does not work, a fine rubbing compound can remove the scratch for real, assuming it is not too deep.
