Liquid under screen

My kids got the liquid from a freezer pac on the tv screen. It seeped under the screen. As it is seeping up the screen is looking black. Any chance this will dry and clear up. It just happened and I wanted to fix it as soon as possible. Can anything be done or is are tv ruined. Please help. Kelly

You need to take the screen off the front. You will find the screen comes away from the frame and seperates into two sheets. The liquid is seeping inbetween the two. If you clean it with Meths it should sort it without marking it.

Can I get the screen clear if I have used the wrong cleaner

Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.

For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.

Picture has white strip down center,mostly black on rest of screen.child sprayed febreeze on screen,felt wetness on bottom of tv

Hi Lance,
This is the sad story of many a Flat Panel TV owners. You must never spray any liquid on the screen because it seeps through the frame, reaches the delicate electronics inside and causes permanent damage. Please let the TV dry up in the sun for some hours and see if there is any improvement. If it does not work I am afraid the damage is permanent. Last resort, you can ask some local Tech to open and try cleaning the seepage.
Good Luck.

VW Passat 2.0 Diesel estate. Occasionally,my passenger side,foot well,is sopping wet. I've noticed water seeping from behind the dash,same side. And I have a slight oily smell inside the car although...

Could the liquid be coolant? If so, you likely have a broken heater core. Or... it could be condensate from the a/c evaporator is not exiting via the hose that is designed to take it out of the car (ever notice how a puddle forms under a car that has the a/c on?). If your car doesn't have the puddle, it's because a bug made a nest in that tube (or some other blockage) and the water is overflowing and coming into the cabin.

Screen has been washed with window cleaning solution & now has a shadow

You probably used too much liquid and it has now seeped inbetween the display screen and the backlight panel.
You would have to fully dismantle the TV and Screen to do this (not recommended unless you know a lot about TV repair).
Some of the liquid might evaporate over time but it is not likely to return to it's original state.

GE THQB 1 pole 20 Oily liquid appears to be seeping from multiple breakers, different panels but not all breakers. Breakers installed 1992. Any thoughts?

There is no liquid in those breakers to seep out... my thought would be that some one used an anti oxidate compound on the wires when they installed them and that is running a bit as the breakers and wires heat and cool....
I would just check the wire connection for tightness and as long as the connections are tight I would not worry about it...

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes

Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .

Liquid under screen on mitsudishi dlp tv

With a conventional projection type screen on CRT type televisions this is not a problem,but with the newer DLP type screens the fiber of the Fresnal screen acts like a spounge and soaks up any liquid introduced.If you try to clean it it will smear and make it worse.You can remove the screen assy an clean it with Windex but allow it to dry properly.I do not see a problem with cleaning this screen,but make sure you put the screens back the way they were.I must also note that it is no easy task removing this particular screen assy.Good luck
