The Best Solution ever is to use the Lcd/Plasma screen cleaner which is quite cheap. You can get appropraite cloths to clean safely your screen.

How do I fix a scratch on an LCD screen? Its not a small scratch. I can see a small white dot through it. Is it possible to fix? Is there a risk of radiation?

There is no risk of radiation through an LCD. Only blinding light that can give you a headache. (I tried using a CCFL as a desk lamp. Headache follows, and despite what people keep telling me, I don't think I look like was born at Chernobyl.) As for the scratch, you must first come to terms that your monitor will never again be perfect, and then decide what is the best course of action for yourself and your skills with the understanding that this will not be easy and it will take quite some time. Personally, this is what I would do. Use something to very carefully blot the bright spot, I would probably use a tiny bit of ink on the tip of a sharpened toothpick. (Apply at a bit of an angle parallel to the scratch to avoid pressure points and stray ink.) It is better to have small dark spot on the screen than a bright one. Next, turn off then unplug the monitor and lay it down as flat as possible. Then, with a very soft touch, clean the entire screen with a gentle sanitary wipe. No strong or abrasive cleaners. If t.p. is what you have than that is what you have. If the wipe is dry, put just enough water on it to make it just damp enough to clean the surface. Take a damp q-tip and dip it in some ash then brush off any rough particles. Gently rub the ashen q-tip along the scratch lengthwise using as little pressure as possible. Rubbing across the scratch may make things faster, but will make the blemish larger, trust me. Repeat with the ashen q-tip until you are satisfied that the edges of the scratch are no longer rough. Very carefully with a barely damp fresh wipe, remove the rubbing's from the screen. Here comes the hard part. What to use to help close the gap, and gloss the finish. Nothing that I have seen or tried is perfect. My fist choice would be to leave it and thank whoever you do or don't pray to that it still works. If this is not acceptable, then if possible, get or debo an anti-dust or anti-glare or privacy screen for the monitor. If this is not possible, but you have access to a water based clear acrylic pen with a satin finish, you could go with that. Do not use gloss or high gloss, shiny things attract attention. Whatever you use to cover the scratch, make sure it is water based, because the solvents in others will tarnish or melt the plastic overlay of the LCD. Another possibility is, if you know someone in the area who paints, perhaps you could get a little water based clear coat with a satin finish, and use a tiny bit of sponge to apply it to the screen. Using even a small brush will leave brush strokes, but if that is what you have, then that is what you have. Best of luck to you, I hope it works out. :)

When I power the monitor up ,i get a nomal screen for about 3 seconds, then just a blank screen.

Look for cold solder joints on the 4 TOROID inductors, this is very common problem and there was recall on this monitor, justt Google "HP F1703 RECALL".
Make sure to remove old solder first and clean the leads real well before resoldering.

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please leave rating if it helps.

The kodak gloss paper gets jammed in my hp photosmart 7350 printer towards the end of printing photos

You have an HP printer. I highly recommend you use HP photo paper for the best results. This may not solve your jamming problem but it may. HP printers are very touchy as to what photo paper you use.

My HP flat screen (crt) screen is getting dark

If the brightness control is set to maximum and the picture is still too dark, two things might be happening. The CRT picture tube may have deteriorated over time, and/or the high voltage circuitry inside the monitor is failing to deliver enough HV to the tube.
In both cases theoretically it can be fixed (the CRT tube replaced with a new one, and the HV part cleaned of dust residue and repaired), but most probably it would cost not much less than purchasing a modern LCD monitor...

Dark Screen


Not cleaning per sey but a tune up. CRT monitors have alot of things going on inside (high voltage and high heat). This causes parts to change value. You can send this to my company for a tuneup or take it to a local serviceman. The average price price should be +- $100.00.

Ok,, thanks again for the additional info. I had the same problem at one point with my HP photo printer, it seems the electronic eye that watches for the edge of the paper somehow can't see/focus on some of the high gloss papers.

How I tested it was simple. I roughed up(wrecking) one sheet and ran it through, it saw the page and printed. after that I tested with semi-gloss and it seems to work better.

Give that a try and let me know if that works.

HP Brightview VS Gateway Ultrabright

Hmmm, interesting -- I happen to have some questions about this model also, and the screen gloss & brightness is one of
them. I, too, prefer the brighter, glossy screens.

How fast do the answers appear here? Don't mean to rush
anyone but I need to buy this model in the next 2 days,
while it is still on sale.

Cleaning finger prints off a high gloss black fridge

Get yourself a "microfiber" cleaning cloth. Search the web & you will find many suppliers online as well as cleaning guides. These cloths are indispensable for glass, TV & computer monitors as well. They are also environmentally friendly as you only need to use a little water with them (no cleaning agent) or even just dry.
