Scratch Repairing on LED TV

Recommended Posts

Haven’t had any luck on Airtasker or TV Repair shops, so thought I should post here. We had an accident in our house where the wooden blinds fell out of the bracket and sadly scratched my 2 week old Sony tv. 
it’s a Sony 65” KD95G 4K LED TV.
Is there any way to repair these scratches? they’re incredibly noticeable on black screen, but not as much when the tv is in use which I would think means they are relatively light scratches. see photos below. 
can anyone help? Is it possible to repair these scratches? 
Thanks

Do you have contents insurance?

 

I don't think thats repairable unless you do a new screen.

Unfortunately not :( 

Thanks @Addicted to music - might give this a try, carefully. Only worry would be further damage.

Try it on the smallest scratch 1st or do a test on the bottom corner to test If it’s going to do more damage....  if I need to sample a test I’d be doing it down the bottom corner where the eyes won’t naturally draw to.

I'd be inclined to agree about risk of further damage. Some screens are coated, and if you polish that off, it may be a lot worse.

You could try meguiars clear plastic cleaner and then meguiars clear plastic polish

If you want to try and repair it yourself, you'll fist have to fine the grade of sandpaper that will take out the deepest scratch at that depth.

Then you go to progressively finer grades [without skipping any] until you hit the Micro Mesh grade range, then finally polishing / cutting compound.

You can get scratches off lenses with this stuff.

 

You can get the scratch out, but as mentioned previously some screens have a coating on them [a Magenta Filter] that could possibly be ruined, depends which side the coating is on, if it's on the outside surface there is not much hope.

 

You can get all the grades of Micro Mesh sanding papers from the link below [they are actually on material not paper]

https://www.thesandpaperman.com.au/micro-mesh-sheet-kit-combo.html

 

The trick is to sand until you can't see the scratches of the previous grade sandpaper you used, then move onto the next grade, this micro mesh goes down to 1 micro, so it will certainly remove the scratch.

Best way to do that is to put several layers of tape surrounding the scratch, then attempt the repair, that way you lessen the chance of effecting the none scratched area of the screen.

 

If your screen has a high reflection to it you'll be OK, as the sanding will equal Glass, but if it has a Matt anti reflection coating on the screen, what you do is still remove the scratch, but then put a fine misting of Hair Spray over the area to Matt it down again.

Most of the of the off the off shelf automotive scratch products like the Meguiars are not cutters/polishes but rather fillers. They "hide" scratches rather than remove them so they may work OK for a screen.

We used to use Micro Mesh on perspex aircraft canopies, to buff out scratches.

I use to use brasso or Silvo to polish out Perspex scratches,  and then I used it on CDs from the local library with many success......
