This should not be a problem. As long as you can see the picture, there is no problem,

Remove scratches on a dlp hdtv

Scratches if deep are rarely "removed" and depending on brand and model number the screen may or may not be available as a part that can be replaced.

Seen a few with Glass where it can be buffed out but that rarely works without leaving distortion in the picture.

Scratched plastic screen protector

I have a rear projection TV that I thought had a scratch as well. Upon closer examination and several attempts to clean, I discovered that there was a spider web behind the screan in front of the color projectors. I carefully removed the screen and gently cleaned the spider web from the screen. Presto no more scratches.

Hope this is a viable solution for you as well.

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].

I have a 50 inch big screen hdtv and i am moving i want to know can i lay my tv down flat?

Yes you can lay it down flat on its screen just make sure it is padded so the screen doesnt get scratched. I transport projection units this way all the time even DLPs however do not transport LCD or plasma units in this manner as thats not recomended.

I think you meant AV56WP74 and yes you can order the screen, with or without the frame. With the frame it's JVC p/n# 56WP74SCSAM2, without the frame p/n# 56SC-003A-M2. Just the screen alone is $400.00 plus shipping and it's an oversized part so it won't be cheap...
You can try Vance Baldwin, or Google search some parts suppliers elsewhere on the net for the best price..
Good Luck!

Scratched tv screen

I replaced the screen on my 62 inch projection TV for about $50 and the the picture quality is good! Have a sheet of plexiglass cut to the EXACT size needed. BEFORE installation it MUST be frosted on both sides by either a fine particle sandblaster or by sanding it VERTICALLY on BOTH sides with a power sander and a fine grade paper.
If this is only an OUTER protective screen and the image is projected on the inner screen then DO NOT frost the replacement screen, just install it.
