Unfortunately, most lcd panels have a polarization filter in the front, this looks like a plastic coating that is actually in front of the glass of the lcd panel, if it's scratched, there is no real way to fix this problem other than replacement.

Posted on Jun 22, 2008

No the polarization filter is normally BEHIND an anti glare layer.

How to clean screen


I dont know which type you have but here is how to clean either:

CRTs
Those big chunky CRT monitors have glass screen which are easily cleaned. The important thing to remember is that you don't ever want to spray any liquid directly on the screen. Instead, spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Flat Panel LCDs
LCD monitors are often called flat panel monitors because they are flat and thin. These are the types of screens that are used in most laptop computers, and they are also becoming very popular for desktop computers. LCD screens are softer than CRT glass screens, so they require some extra tender loving care. Keep your fingers and sharp objects away from these screens since they are susceptible to damage and scratches.
Use a soft dry cotton cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen. If this does not completely remove the dirt and splotches, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the cleaning cloth that has been dampened with water. (A small amount of vinegar can be substituted for the isopropyl alcohol.) Again, spray the liquid on the cloth and never directly onto the screen. Do not use paper towels on an LCD screen as they can scratch the screen. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based cleaners, or strong cleaners which can cause the surface to yellow and become brittle.
It is good to have a special clean cloth that is dedicated to use on the LCD screen. Don't pick up any old rag, as dirt particles in the rag can scratch the surface of the screen. Special LCD cleaning cloths are available and can be an excellent investment.

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. :)

Scratched computor screen


How deep of a scratch is it on the screen? Just on the plastic/glass protective coating over the monitor?
If it is not in the LCD then you could just remove the plastic/glass and replace it if you want.
If the scratch is deep then your LCD is probably scratched. Sadly the cost of replacing the LCD screen within an LCD monitor is more expensive than buying an entirely new screen. Your best bet is either dealing with the scratch or getting an entirely new monitor. I would recommend visiting www.newegg.com where there are many cheap monitors there.

You can't get the scratch out, since it's embedded there by metal. you can patch it up with clear tape or use glare reduction monitor screen.

How do I remove the bezel from my hp l1955 monitor


There usually screws hidden behind stick-on plastic covers on the front and or edges of the screen. Use a sharp point to lift off these covers to reveal the screws.
The bezel will also have plastic catches/clips that secures the bezel to the lid as well as double sided tape. Slip a thin blade between the glass screen and bezel and gently lift the bezel free. Start at a corner and gradually work along each side.
Be careful not the apply too much pressure on the glass (it is easily cracked) and be careful not to scratch the screen.

Sctratches on 46" lcd tv. Two of which is noticeable in dark scenes.(White lines) How do I fix this?


used thse methods myself
Vaseline Method
  1. Clean the surface of the screen.
  2. Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
  3. Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
  4. Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.

Pencil Eraser Method
  1. Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor.
  2. Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
  3. Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears

Scratches in my LCD Television Screen (sony bravia) How will I fix this?


Easiest solution is the stuff you buy to fix your glasses with (Lens cpr), so long as it's a small scratch. Larger scratches don't try to fix you can damage the screen further. 

Other solutions (though I recommend only at your own risk)
Vaseline Method
Clean the surface of the screen.
Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it.
Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch.
Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.


Pencil Eraser Method
Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor.
Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen.
Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears [1].

Repaire scratches on a lcd flat screen


The eraser method is even better than I first thought.
I acquired my first scratch some weeks back, tried the eraser method, and was quite pleased with the results, as my scratch was approx. 80% less visible, a faint grey line visible only on very light or dark coloured backgrounds, instead of the glaring black line it was at first.
Today my monitor toppled again (I really must tether the damn thing to something next time) creating - gulp - a new and even larger scratch. Oh, no... But whodathunk I'd end up happy I got the 2nd scratch? Oddly, I am happy, 'cause I took the opportunity to lay the monitor flat, take my white eraser again , and really go to town rubbing both new & old scratches. Lo & behold, both scratches appear to be now virtually 100% invisible or gone. My 2-scratch monitor is better now than it was as a one scratch one! I'm now convinced it's partly, largely, or completely due to the heat from friction of rubbing the eraser across the scratch, plus pressure applied, that does the trick. The heat must soften the plastic surface making it malleable, and the pressure of rubbing smooths out the jagged scratch edges, making the scratches disappear.
-So, if at first your eraser doesn't completely eliminate your scratch, try, try again! Keep working on it - harder!faster! And with luck, you'll get results like mine: complete elimination of two ugly scratches!
