SOURCE: looks like a water stain on screen

IT SHOULD NOT NEED A "REPAIR" PER SAY. HOWEVER, I OWN AN LCD TV, BUT NOT A PROTRON. YOU'RE GONNA FIND THIS PROBLEM WITH ALL LCD TV'S. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS SIMPLY DIRTY. THIS IS THE WAY YOU CLEAN YOUR SCREEN. IT IS VERY EASY AND FAST, AND YOU SHOULD HAVE THE SOLUTION IN YOUR KITCHEN AND BATHROOM. TAKE THE CLEANEST, MOST SOFT CLOTH YOU HAVE IN YOUR HOUSE. DAMPEN,NOT SOAK IT, WITH WATER, AND LIGHTLY RUB A SMALL SECTION OF THIS STAIN, AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, ADD A SMALL AMOUNT OF SIMPLE RUBBING ALCOHOL, AND TRY ANOTHER SMALL SPOT OF THE STAIN. IT SHOULD COME OFF. SOME OF MY "HI-TECH" FRIENDS USE STRAIGHT RUBBING ALCOHOL, AS IT HAS A TENDENCY TO EVAPORATE A LOT FASTER THAN WATER AND LESS LIKELY TO LEAVE ANY "WATER STAINS". HOWEVER, IF YOU CANNOT SEE THROUGH THIS STAIN, THEN YOU'RE BETTER OFF BUYING A NEW TV. SOUNDS LIKE SOME KIND OF LEAK OR MAYBE THE TV IS JUST NEVER SHUT OFF, THEREFORE BURNING IMAGES INTO THE SCREEN. FORTUNATELY, IF IT IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY, YOU MAY GET HELP THERE. MY FIANCE TOUCHED THE LCD SCREEN WITH HIS FINGERS, AND IF YOUR FINGERS ARE DIRTY, THEY WILL LEAVE OIL STAINS. PEOPLE DO SOMETHING TO A PRIZE POSSESSION IN YOUR HOUSE, DONT TELL YOU THEN ACT LIKE THEY DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. ITS HILARIOUS. HOPEFULLY THE ISSUE YOU HAVE CAN BE FIXED BY YOU!

SOURCE: plasma screen

There is a slight film on these and once damaged is a real pain to clean, what we do here is spray the rag with rubbing alchahol then clean the screen, several passes may clean it up, but never spray the screen, this allows fluid to leak down past the front and this can kill the set real fast

SOURCE: my philips lcd tv looks like it has water stains

Same thing happened to my "new" Sharp lcd, I loosened the back screws just a tad and it stopped. I believe it is caused by heat from the back light and expands the LCD fluid causing it to leak down the front between the cover mask and the glass. Not an easy fix and if you have any warranty check into it....

How do I get streaks off the screen?


I use a brand new microfiber cloth. Mist the cloth with a spray bottle a few times with clean water. And brush the screen lightly with only the microfiber by folding the cloth into a square. If the stain is persistent try a LCD screen cleaning product

Looks like a water stain on the sceen


Liquid and/or water stains in LCD screens can be removed by opening the panel and cleaning with a delicate non-abrasive cloth {If needed use a diluted alcohol water mix.} The water will be trapped between the plastic sheeting that is within the panel assembly. This procedure is very easy on a laptop though since you have a 42" screen... The LCD panel is composed of: the display itself and several layers of translucent plastic sheets which focus and enhance the image produced by the display. The display is usually very thin so perhaps on such a large screen it is best that you have a professional perform the repair.

If you decide to undertake this task on your own, I recommend a flat level surface and latex gloves to prevent further smudging {also, most if not all LCD's contain mercury.}

Shadow down right side of screen on a toshiba 44NHM84 44" DLP television


shadows at the bottom of the screen sound like moisture that was "wicked up" between the screen layers and dryed out leaving a stain. DO NOT get these screens wet, use nothing but a damp soft cloth; just a few drops of water running down the screen can cause a fairly large stain. Some people have suggested that they may be professionally cleaned, but the risk of damage is too great on the user level.
