No matter how careful we are, there are moments when the precious LED screen of our TV becomes scratched. Your first instinct would likely be to call repair services to have it looked at. But if the LED display just experienced a minor scratch then a little do-it-yourself may be preferable and less expensive. Here are four ways in which you can remove that scratch from the LED panel of your TV.
You read that right. By alcohol though we mean the one found in the medicine cabinet and not the liquor cabinet. What you do is mix a solution of 50% isoprophyl alcohol and 50% distilled water. Once you have that, get a micro fiber cloth and dip it into the solution. Gently rub the cloth in the area of the LED screen that has the scratch. If done correctly, the scratch should slowly disappear.
2. Petroleum Jelly
We are familiar with how petroleum jelly can help cure burns. It has, however, another use which is to remove scratches from the LED display. One example of a petroleum jelly product would be Vaseline. Using a micro fiber cloth, get a small amount of petroleum jelly and wipe it on the scratch. Then, gently wipe away any excess jelly from the screen. The only problem with this method is that petroleum jelly wears off over time, thus there may be a need to re-apply it.
A simple white eraser can also do the trick. You can buy these from your nearest bookstore or art store. You can also utilize used white erasers, however make sure that it is clean and does not have any marks from a pencil or pen. Otherwise the marks will just transfer damaging your LED screen. What you need to do is gently rub the eraser on the scratch area. If you rub it too hard, some of the eraser’s coating may transfer to the screen. After a while you should see that the scratch will be barely noticeable.
4. Scratch Kit
If you are not sure about using the first three methods listed, then your best option would be to buy a scratch kit. There are a number of brands available that you can use. These scratch kits have different prices so just decide which one you want. However, you must choose the one that suits to your needs. For example, while there are also LED screens for personal computers, repair kits for them may not work as well as those for TV. There are cases when you use the wrong one and it would just make the display screen worse.
Always keep in mind that these are just some sound advice if you prefer to try and remove the scratch yourself. If you are not sure even with a repair kit, then it is best to call the nearest repair shop and have them look at it. Whatever decision you make, the most important thing is that the scratch on your LED screen is removed.
