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.

Sincerely,
Aaron

How to fix scratches on lcd tv screens what is the best way to fix scratches on a sony kdl52xbr6 tv screen or do I contact Sony directly


If there deep scratches you need to replace the outter layer and that could get expensive. Now if there small scratches a lcd repair kit would work. You can get those on line for the fraction of the replacment of the lcd screen.

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

My philips plasma tv fell off my stand and smashed the screen. there is sound coming bu no picture. the glass inside is smashed but nothing has run out of the screen. can it be fixed?


Yes it can be fixed most certainly. You have broken your Plasma screen and most certainly scratched your filter glass with the broken screen glass inside. Depending on where you bought the TV, and whether you have a cover plan, you may get the Tv screen & Filter replaced under accidental damage. If the TV is still under warranty and you dont have a cover plan, you may find the repair will be refused. If so, you could maybe buy the same tv off ebay as repairs or spares and fix yours.

MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS JUST SCRATCHED MY SONY BRAVIA TV WITH A MAGNA DOODLE PEN. HOW CAN I GET RID OF THE SCRATCHES?


Clean the surface of the LCD screen with a barely damp cloth.
  • Step 2 Dry the screen with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Step 3 Rub a generous amount of petroleum jelly into the scratch using a cotton swab. The petroleum jelly should fill in the scratch and remain there.
  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • Step 4 Immediately wipe the excess petroleum jelly off of the screen with a soft cloth being careful to leave some petroleum jelly inside the scratch to act as a patch or filler.

  • This scratch repair method is effective because of optical density. The optical density of petroleum jelly matches the plastic, LCD screen coating more closely than that of air.
  • To avoid future scratches or gouges, you might consider purchasing a LCD screen protector. These screen protectors are generally made of a thin, plastic film and affix to the screen without adhesives. Not only can they protect against scratches, but they also keep the screen free of dirt, oil and dust while simultaneously reducing glare.
  • When wiping the screen as described Step 4, avoid pressing too hard or you will inadvertently remove the petroleum jelly from inside the scratch.
  • Using petroleum jelly to fill a scratch on your LCD screen could void your screen's warranty. If you are concerned about warranty issues, consult your user's manual for more information.

    Screen has a little scratch there is sound but on picture with little thread lines coming form the scratch


    you likely need a new tv. on the insides the audio pieces are a lot tougher than the delicate pieces that create the picture for you. if it was dropped and something hit it and it cracked losing your picture, I am pretty sure the tv is toast.
