Hey picapica2,

In some cases, scratches and other minor imperfections may be able to be removed by cleaning the LCD screen using a slightly damp, lint-free (or microfiber) cloth. Simply dampening the cloth then wringing out any excess moisture will often be enough to remove surface contaminants, and even minimize the appearance of some scratches.

Remember to never use normal household cleaners like Windex or Goo Gone on LCD screens, as many of these cleaners may contain chemicals that can cause eventual corrosion and further damage to your TV.

You may still be able to find a number of commercial LCD screen cleaning kits for sale through local retailers, but keep in mind that availability may vary. Additionally, some manufacturers may have warnings or disclaimers regarding some products, so make sure to refer to your owner's manual for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

How to fix a scrath game

if the scratch is on the mettalic foil/printed side of the disc then there is nothing that can be done. However.. if the scratch is on the non printed side you MIGHT be able to use a device you can find at most wal-marts that is designed to buff scratches out. That or goto your local GameStop and ask them if you can't find one.

Removeing scrathes from metal

Depends how big the scratches are.

some will buff out buy using a good car wax and polishing the scratches out. As long as the scrathes have not gone through the paint down to the metal it will work. If you get some "Tar gone" its and abrasive for getting tar off paint that can some times be a little abbrasive and can get the scratch rubbed out prior to going over the top of that area again after with a good high quality car polish (one you apply by hand with a cloth and rub to a shine - not one you tip in a bucket of water and wash the car with).

If the scratches a really large like wide than a human hair, or if the metal is dented, then the buffing is not going to work and if you can't live with it you may want to consider respray via a car body shop. you can do it your self with a spray can but cars today have a clear top coat for a start that will mean respraying your self will look bad and thats if you can even get the color matched exactly, so if its bad and buffing wont work go see a body shop for a quote.

Mp3 player

Sorry but no.
But i broke my screen and the exact same mp3 and i still had the origanal packaging so maybe you could somewhat cover up the scrathed part and put it all back perfectly and then you can bring it back and then blame it on them and they might give you a new one. but try to say that it was like this when i got it.
Please write back

Tv screen scratches

If this is the clear smooth screen, yes you can go to your local glass & paint store & have a new protective screen cut for that size. If this is the screen with thin lines etched in it from top to bottom..vertically is the Lenticular lens & no there is no way to repair, you must replace, with new or used. Go to ebay under projection tv parts see if you can locate someone having your size for sale & bid on it or email them to outright purchase it.
