If you unplug the set and let it sit till it dries out you may be able to save it, but turn it off and unplug it before it burns up. There are several boards and chips that can be damaged from the liquid. Most likely it is more than one that has been damages but if it dries out with out shorting out it may be saved. If your lucky,

    The T-CON board is really a Video Graphics Card on a computer just a different title might be the culprit, but It's nearly impossible to properly diagnose a television without being able to look at it. It does sound like one of the boards isn't working properly, but I can't answer definitively which one. I'd recommend you have it looked at by one of our authorized service centers. Iam afraid that the lcd panel may have gone bad and if that is the case then it is wiser to replace the set than to repair. If your set is under 15 month old then register it with the link below and Samsung most likely will repair this under warranty if you play dumb and don't tell them what you did with the windex!

Mitsubishi tv sprayed with 409 cleaner

Not much if it was on the screen it is forever. The outside of most screens has a anti-glare coating that cleaners with chemicals destroy, usually a warning in the owner manual about this and most sets that screen is part of the display unit itself--cannot be replaced.

My ViewSonic monitor on my desktop has very, very thin lines of color running vertically all the way across the screen. Has been like this - according to former owner _ since he got it and sprayed th

I am under the impression of the following:

Some cleaning spray must have leaked in through the bezel and went on to a circuit board. In this type of case this would be a type of matrix screen drive problem. If any of the boards are damaged they have to be replaced. I have my doubts you can buy circuit boards and service the monitor yourself. It would be much more reasonable to replace the monitor.

When cleaning a monitor with liquids, dampen the soft tissue with the cleaner, and then do the cleaning on the screen. Make sure no liquid will run down to below and beneath the bezel.

Can I see the difference

Visually, there is very little difference to the eye of the average consumer between 720p and 1080. However, 720p can deliver a slightly smoother-looking image, due to the fact that lines and pixels are displayed in a consecutive pattern, rather than in an alternate pattern.your tv is display format is 720p and blu ray is 1080p. what happen is it will be scaled into 720p. old tv set format is 480p 720p represents 1,280 pixels displayed across the screen horizontally and 720 pixels down the screen vertically. This arrangement yields 720 horizontal lines on the screen, which are, in turn, displayed progressively, or each line displayed following another. 1080p, on the other hand, represents 1,080 horizontal lines displayed sequentially. This means all lines are displayed during the same pass. 1080p is the highest quality HD display format. 480p represents 720 pixels displayed across the screen horizontally and 480 pixels down the screen vertically. This arrangement yields 480 horizontal lines on the screen, which are, in turn, displayed progressively, or each line displayed following another.
