Is it on the out side? It may be a scratch on the display. If that be the case then you are going to have to live with it or replace the LCD. Replacing the LCD is a real big cost if not costprohibitave.

How do I clean the LCD/LED screen without smudging or leaving a water mark

Hi Herkandjen,
Most TV companies recommend only a dry cotton cloth for cleaning the LCD screens. My personal experience is that using a mildly moist clean cotton cloth is the best thing for this purpose. For tough oily marks MILD soap solution can also be used in place of water. Please be careful to apply only very mild pressure while cleaning. Never ever spray the screen with any kind of liquid. Because the liquid if seeped through the plastic frame can damage the electronics inside. Happy viewing.

What's the best way to clean a tv screen

Mild soap and water with a microfiber cloth with TV off. Then I wipe only water on the cloth to remove any residue then quickly dry with a dry microfiber cloth.

Vizio 1080p making a clicking sound with a blackish / gray screen no picture model VU42LFHDTV10A

Sounds like your controller board is bad or a power supply issue. Try to change input. If it does the same thing it is the controller board. You can get a replacement on ebay if no longer under warranty

Vizio 1080p model VU42LFHDTV10A clicking and blackish/ gray screen no picture

have you tried changing the "input" button is on lower left corner. If you have a DVD/VCR hooked up, change input to that, if still same thing then the high voltage power supply might be bad.

My 3 year old niece touched the centre of my panasonic viera plasma screen leaving a grey "burn" mark - how do I repair or clean it off?

That will be just a discolouration, not a burn mark.
Use dilute washing up liquid and a soft clean cloth that has been wrung out almost dry, to wash the grease marks away.
Hope that helps.

I have a 55" toshiba

If you use a clean lint free cloth with a mild solution of washing up liquid, that will remove the greasy marks. Be sure to wring the cloth almost dry before use as we don't want liquid flowing down and into the electronics through the tiny gap between the screen and the front panel.
Hope that helps.

I have a combo tv/dvd model PLV31199s(or 5)1. The tv is fine but the remote won't do anything (volume/ch change). Replaced batteries but nothing seems to help. Can you.

Hi there,

Well it seems that you need a new remote for your TV, but first i suggest you to try cleaning your old remote. Please follow the below steps -
1. Take a screw driver (depends on your remote) and carefully remove the screws and keep it safe.
2. Remove the back cover with care and separate the key panel and the remote board(the circuit board)
3. Now place the circuit board above a paper and clear it with a soft dry cloth.
4. Take few drops of kerosene or any mild detergent on a damp cloth and gently wipe on the circuit board, you can see a blackish settlement on the cloth after you wipe it. its the dirt. Blow it manually or use a blower.
5. leave it aside for a minute. Then with a another dry soft cloth make a final wipe and ur remote is clean.
6. Now you have to properly place back the key panel and the circuit, after that close the back cover with care and re screw it. If further you have the same problem then it's sure that you need a new remote for your TV.

Good Luck!!

Samsung LCD screen cleaning technique

Hard crusties? what do you do to have this type of matter on the screen?

Be carful with what you use on the screen, a damp cloth is permissable. This does not mean spraying liquid directly on the screen and wiping it

Spray into the cloth or dampen cloth and wring out well. Do not let any excess water drip down the screen especially if it gets into the TV via the outer frame around the screen.otherwise poof it will never work again

please rate our help to keep the service online
