My daughter sprayed fruit cleaning spray on the screen and it got behind it. There must be two layers to the screen because there is liquid behind the front screen. When I peak behind the screen I can't clean it and I cant' get the whole thing off. Any ideas on how to fix?
Actually, I had the same thing happen to me. I was considering taking the unit in to have it serviced, however, after a few days the liquid finally evaporated. I live in AZ, where it is dry ... I guess it helps.

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.
First of all vinegar is acidic. You are supposed to use a soft cloth or tissue dampened with the proper cleaning solution for LCD screens. You can also make your own cleaning solution.
Even though you think you used very little, all it takes is a single drop or enough vapors to go down below the screen to the circuit board inside. Once liquid touches one of these boards most often damage will occur.
These boards are multi layered and use very high density SMD technology. They are usually impossible and too costly to service. The normal practice is to change the defective board, and then do any necessary adjustments.
I would suggest you call the service rep for your TV type and inquire about how to go about getting an estimate. I can tell you fixing this type of set will not be low in cost.
This model relies on the top spray arm to 'wash' the detergent out of the soap dispenser - and that is the problem. Your top spray arm will not be turning properly. Check the angled jet on the very tip of the arms for blockages with food or fruit pips etc - it's this angle only that makes the arms turn.
if blocked, clean out with a pin or wire, and running water - make sure you get every bit out. If not, buy a new spray arm. If the arm is split, you will need a new one.
Other problems may be low water level or a faulty circulation pump - BUT check the spray arms first.
Remember a dishwasher is NOT a garbage disposal unit, so scrape any food particles of plates etc before putting them in the machine. Run a dishwasher cleaner through with no load once in awhile.
Take a clean cloth and spray some windex on the cloth and then wipe down the screen and it should come nice and clean. Never spray it directly on the screen cause if the liquid goes down inside of the screen then it could damage it.
It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.
